Are you worried about your children not having green veggies? Is their intake of greens very low? Just like majority of kids today, if they are inclined towards junk food and unhealthy edibles, it is apparent that you will be worried. Winters are the best time for intake of greens. But, even after all your efforts, you see your kids removing those healthy leafy vegetables from their meals before having them, and your heart sinks. The ‘Winter Green Juice’ is the best way to fight your kids’ unhealthy eating habits.
Green juice is full of vitamins, which can help improve digestion and to get a good dose of daily vegetables. Although juicing the veggies eliminates the fiber content to a great extent but, having greens in some form is better than not having them at all, right?
Preparing this juice is really simple and quick. All you have to do is peel and cut the veggies and juice them in your juicer. However, how much of which veggie you need to put is important.
Ingredients (for 1 glass)
- Kale – 1 bunch
- Celery stalks – 3 to 4
- Cucumber – 1/3rd
- Apple – 1
- Lemon – 1 (small)
Wash all your veggies and apple thoroughly and core the apple. Remember not to stem your veggies. Cut all your products into small pieces or chunks. Feed the kale into your juicer, followed by celery, cucumber and apple. The cucumber will smoothen out the acidic notes provided by the other veggies. And, the apple will serve as the best way to add a sweetened touch to the juice and will replace the low water content of kale. Put in the lemon at the end to flush out any remaining juice from the juicer. Your yummy healthy green juice is ready!
You may also replace the kale with collard greens (saag), parsley, spinach, beet or carrots for a variety of tastes. You should in fact use those veggies that are in season.
