Kale to the Queen Pops

Enjoy dessert and get your greens too!

Kale is king (and queen!) in the plant world. Nutrient dense and loaded with carotenoids such as lutein.

Just ½ cup per week provides a protective benefit against glaucoma. Kale is also nutrient-rich in other antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients and anti-cancer nutrients. Vitamin K supports bone, cardiovascular health and supports the body’s detoxification process. (Helps the liver get rid of the bad stuff.)

Ingredients:

 

Always choose the freshest and ripest produce available for optimum nutrition and best flavor.

 

2 cups Kale

1 apple

1 small or medium cucumber

½ lemon, juiced

Instructions:

 

Wash and prepare your produce.  Cutting dirty produce can contaminate your fruit or vegetable with harmful organisms. Place in the sink and give it a good bath with gentle earth friendly soap.

**Important Note**

 

Choose organically grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Non-organic produce is deficient in minerals (needed to prevent disease) and replete with dozens of chemicals that create a toxic overload in your body. Children especially need to avoid chemically-grown foods.

 

If organic produce is not available to you, at least adhere to the clean fifteen and avoid the dirty dozen.

 

Shop your local co-op, farmer’s market, and grow your own!

 

Diabetics should restrict their fruit sugar (fructose) to 25 gms. per day, according to Joseph Mercola, M.D.

Please consult your holistic healthcare practitioner if you have blood sugar issues before drinking this healthy juice recipe.

 

Juicing is a great way to reach your daily requirement of 6-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
