Greens to the Rescue!

Finding the perfect combination of vegetables for a green juice takes a little bit of trial and error. Too much green and it might be too bitter. Too much ginger and you might start sweating. I think I may have hit upon the perfect recipe for delicious, not-too-bitter, not-too-gingery green juice.

The Perfect Green Juice
2 stalks of celery
1/2 a large cucumber, peeled
1/2 a lemon (cut off the outside skin, but leave the pith)
1 small or medium apple
3 inches ginger root
1 inch turmeric root (if your grocery store has it)
2 carrots
1 beet, top cut off (red or golden... if you do the red, or juice won't look green though!)
1/2 bunch kale

Juice 'em up and drink your fill of vitamins and minerals! Makes ~16 ounces so you can share with your sweetheart.
