The Lean Green Nutrient Machine // When you're looking to amp up the nutrition, without getting too crazy - this Lean Green Nutrient Machine is the perfect balance. A little bit of sweetness and a whole lot of nutrition! | Tried and TastyI’ve given you lots of frilly juice recipes, but it’s important to balance them out with nutrition filled juices as well. As much as I would like to primarily drink fruit juice, the real benefit in juicing is to juice the vegetables that are going to give back. Fruits of course are high in natural sugar. For a happy medium, it’s best to do mostly vegetables with an occasional fruit thrown in (to help the taste). Our bell peppers went crazy in our garden this year and I was so excited that they did. So crisp and so fresh AND so perfect freshly juiced.

Another one of our staples is cilantro. I LOVE cilantro. On tacos, on salads, and in juice. I know it’s one of those things that people either love or hate, and for me… I love it! Spinach is also one of those great leafy greens that’s perfect to throw in your juice. It’s the perfect ‘gateway’ green (as I like to call it). Then you can work your way up to kale, collards, and chard from there. My recommendation would be to try and get a healthy nutrient filled juice in at least once a day. Once you’ve got that down, throw in a sweet fruit juice for a treat here and there!
