So Fresh and So Green, Green

Two words.  Juice cleanse.  Sound familiar?  Of course it does.  Green drinks are, like, so hot right now.  I won't lie, I'm drinking one from Necter as we speak.  Who would have thought that drinking liquid vegetables would gain such popularity?  I mean, really.  Juice Bars are sprouting up all over the place.  In fact, did you know that Starbucks opened four Evolution Fresh Inc. juice stores last year?  I was living in San Francisco when they took over Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.  Not cool.  Personally, I think that Starbucks should calm down and stick to coffee.  

Green drinks can be expensive.  If you want to save money, I would suggest investing in a juicer.  [I am completely obsessed with the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer.]  You'll be able to make your own green drinks from the comfort of your home.  If you're feeling creative, you can even make up your own nutritious concoction.  For those of you who already own a juicer (You go, Glen Coco!), I highly suggest the following easy recipes.  

The Buzz
1 orange
5 medium carrots
1 " piece ginger (Add more for an extra kick.)
1/2 lemon

Power Punch
2 c. kale
2 c. parsley
1 c. spinach leaves
1 medium apple
3 celery stalks
1/2 green bell pepper

Breakfast Eye Opener
4 pineapple spears
1 pink grapefruit (peeled)

Love Potion
1 peach (pitted)
1 c. seedless red grapes
1 c. strawberries 
1 small apple




  1. also, throwing in a good size piece of fresh burdock root to each juice is awesome for detoxifying. it purifies and flushes toxins from the blood stream. it is also antifungal, antibacterial, and a diuretic, which means it will help flush excess water from the body. a 3 inch piece in each juice is a great way to start. its a little woody, but hides under the flavors of other juice ingredients. try it out!

    excеptional receptors help to conсentrate automaticаlly.

    The pаrtiсular sensors connected wіth somе cаmeras changе in in the areа of contrast, while othеrs use a beаm of infra-red (IR) lіght,
    partiсulaгly in loω lighting. Higher stanԁardѕ cameraѕ аt tіmes
    use a mix of both programs anԁ could have Faсе Prioгity AF whегe the photοgraphic
