Green Juice: Easy way to eat your veggies!

Let’s face it; for lovers of all things greasy, crispy, deep fried and drowning in sugar, eating your daily required intake of vegetables is hard. But if we could just increase our intake dramatically with just one drink, doesn’t it sound too good to be true? That is essentially what green juice is.

Green juice is a mixture of vegetables (mainly of the green, leafy variety) with a couple of fruits, that have been juiced together to make one very green drink. There’s also green smoothies, which basically means that the vegetables have been blended rather than juiced.

Green juices are great because they’re a quick and sneaky way to have all your veggies—without the effort. Sometimes it’s hard to sit there with your large plate of kale, spinach, lettuce, celery and carrots, with absolutely no interest in eating it, only knowing you have to for health. But if it’s just juiced (or blended if you like a thicker consistency) it’s much easier to have your intake and reap the benefits. It’s even great for little kiddies, whom which you need to implement sneaky tactics to get them to eat their vegetables.

However, it may take some time getting used to as it is quite a distinct taste. Therefore, you could try out using a few fruits with one main green (spinach or kale) and start from there. Add another vegetable each week. For smoothies, have coconut water or almond milk as a base, blended with your greens.

For your firsts, try out the ‘Green Lemonade’ juice (3 cups of spinach, 1 lemon, 1 cucumber, 1 pear and 1 gala apple) or the ‘Green Strawberry-Kiwi Lemonade’ smoothie (1 kiwi, ¾ cup of strawberries, ½ cup of pineapple, ½ lemon, 2 cups of spinach and 1 ½ cup of coconut water) courtesy of MindBodyGreen.com.

Boost Juice has also introduced four different flavours of green juice, so if you’re interested, try theirs out.
