I don’t know about you, but I love a simple fresh recipe that bursts with color and flavor. As a board certified health coach and gluten free guru, I look for simple recipes that are loaded with nutrients and keeps me satisfied for hours. This is one of my personal favorites. You can make it and store for up to 3 days and keep it for whenever you need something quick & satisfying.

What is the difference between blending and juicing?
Blenders retain everything from the food.
They take the fiber and pulp and blend it all together.
Juicers separate the pulp from the juice and we drink the juice only.
When you first start out, juicing is a lot easier and gentler on your body. Whether you are juicing to treat a health condition or just to stay healthy, you will experience a lot of detoxification.
If you are not used to all that fiber, the juice will still give you loads of energy.
When you advance, and if you enjoy the texture, go ahead and make smoothies.
When we juice green vegetables, we liberate the chlorophyll and our bodies immediately absorb it. Chlorophyll is a detoxifier, deodorant and is an incredible healer of inner and topical inflammation and wounds. The chlorophyll remakes our blood. It is centered on magnesium and our blood is centered on iron.
You need to be careful to use simple juices if you are on a lot of medication. If you are very sick, you will probably release toxins very quickly. This will happen in the form of bowel movements. Sometimes your liver dumps a lot of toxins. Chlorophyll is a neutralizer of toxins and can deal with anything you have. It is good for kidney, heart and liver conditions. Green juice is an amazing detoxifier.
Here’s one of my favorite recipes
