Green Veggie juice

This TOTALLY healthy juice will surprise you by its taste. It is delicious! Don't let the carrots and kale and cucumbers scare you away. This veggie juice will change your life!

In case you happen to be tired of the copious amounts of calorie-laden goodies I have been sharing, I offer you a reprieve! Thanks to a very generous and kind friend, we are owners of a brand new juicer! And we have been using it like crazy. This week I have had a veggie juice for breakfast and lunch every day, followed by a sensible dinner. I had to "cheat" by eating something substantial before dinner the last three days because I get light-headed if I don't. I don't like feeling light-headed. The detox feels good, though. My body is happy!

Dan and I have a standard juice that we make, but when we are in short supply of ingredients we have to improvise. This juice was one of my improvisations that turned out delicious! If you have a juicer, you must give this a try.

This makes somewhere around 16 ounces of juice. I love the tiny bit of zing that the garlic adds, but omit if desired.

It is delicious and sooo healthy! More juice recipes to come, as well as naughty, delicious treats. :)
