Balance Your Diet With Green Juice


| 7/8/2010 10:35:37 AM


I recently had dinner at my boyfriend’s house the day he got back from a mission trip. The minute he and his brother walked in the door, they were begging their mom to make them green juice.

I’m a smoothie kind of girl. I love grinding up my fruit into a refreshing drink. I’ve never really been a fan of veggies, so the idea of drinking them was less than appealing to me. But my boyfriend swears by this stuff, so it was time I gave it a shot.

While the boys cleaned up, I stayed to watch the juicing in action. Here’s what my boyfriend’s mom, Vicky, put in the juicer:

4 or 5 broccoli stems (save flowers for another use)
1/2 head romaine lettuce
Handful of parsley
1 celery stick (optional)
1/2 to 1 whole apple

green juice

Vicky poured the green juice into glasses for each of us. The boys happily chugged their green juice while I stared into my cup. It looked really unappetizing to me, and it also smelled kind of funky. I took a sip anyway.
