I just made my wake up time juice, yes I know it is 4:30 PM, but I work nights. This is my morning time. This juice today was a bunch of kale, cucumber, an orange, and a carrot. It is quite tasty. Now, if you are new to juicing like I am, you probably are thinking, what is kale and why do juicers keep going on about it?
Here is a link from whole foods describing its benefits. Basically it is one of the most nutrient dense leafy greens you can buy. It is a super food.
When you’re juicing you won’t see much juice come out of kale. You may be thinking, “Do I have to juice 10 lbs for one cup of juice?” No, add a cucumber or some other veggie that has a lot of water in it to give your juice some bulk. The kale juice may be small, but don’t worry, it is packing a punch of nutrients for your body.
If you want to eat your kale in a non-juice form, kale chips are all the rage. It’s a great way to have “chips” with no carbs. Here is a link to a recipe for those.
Next time you’re out buying juicing supplies, do not forget the kale!
