Episode 3. Don’t Trust an Irishman with a Green Drink?
When I started juicing I had to start with milder flavours that you would find from say lettuce, spinach and cucumber vs. Swiss chard and beet greens, but after a while I was able to build up to stronger flavours, which I am now absolutely hooked on. Thank you Robin for being a great teacher!
Selection of the following, organic preferably:
Ginger – peeled
Lemon – peeled but leave some of the membrane on
Apple – core discarded
Rinse all the vegetables under cold water and shake off excess.
Pick n choose whatever combo you want. Play around with the flavors until you find what you like.When you make juice you’ll go through a lot of vegetables to make a little. Just know you’re getting a glass packed full of nutrients so it’s definitely worth it.
Here are a couple of my favourites juices:
1 bunch Swiss chard
2 small bunches of spinach
2 small gala apples
6 stalks of celery
Yields 2 1/2 pints
2 heads of romaine lettuce
4 carrots (I used 2 white carrots and two orange)
1 bunch spinach
1 bunch beet greens
Yields 2 cups
And if you want to spice it up add in ginger!
You CAN trust this Irishman!
