Green Juice

What is green juice?

It’s basically a smoothie made with green, leafy plants {such as wheatgrass, or spinach}. You can make your own in a blender. I buy mine because it’s just so stinkin’ convenient {I usually get the Bolthouse Farms version, but there’s also Naked brand, sometimes a store brand, and the Odwalla version}. The trick is that they’re made with fruit to make them taste better.

I first learned about green smoothies when I worked in a health food store. We were allowed to read the store books if we weren’t busy with customers and I read Green For Life. It’s worth taking a look at if for no other reason than to get some of the many recipes in the back. I suspect the claims it makes for the power of green juice are exaggerated, but I do believe green juice is healthy stuff!

Green juice is a great way to get a serving of veggies, or several, quickly. Give it a try, you might find you like it, even if it takes some getting used to. And if you don’t, well, you can still get veggies the old fashioned way.



  1. I love Naked juice but have never tried the Green Juice. I think I'll try that today :)

  2. That answers my question :)

    I'll definitely be checking out the book - looks like a good one.

  3. Let me know how you like it MLS!

    Brittany, I'd see if your library has it, or can get it on inter-library loan and then I'd just photocopy the recipes. :)

    I went for a walk for these comments.
