Super Mean Green Juice Fast Day 1

Yesterday I told you about my 30 day juice fast journey. Today I wanted to share with you one of the juices I will be drinking every morning.

You can drink as much of this juice as you like.

Most people drink between 3-4 liters of green juice daily, plus 12-16 cups of water. I am not a doctor, so I just listen to my body about the juice and water.

For those of you who haven’t seen the film, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, it’s a much watch on the benefits of juicing.

Today’s recipe is a take on the Mean Green Juice in the movie. I added pear and grapefruit to my juice.

You can omit grapefruit if you don’t like the tartness of it. You can also do two apples instead of pear.

I also will be rotating my greens daily, as I read that it’s important to rotate greens due to toxicity in greens.

You don’t have to rotate daily but I will suggest weekly. 

Rotate your leafy greens according to family.

  • Crucifers: kale, collards, arugula, cabbage, bok choy, radish greens, mustard greens, broccoli
  • Amaranth: spinach, chard, beets
  • Asteraceae: dandelions, leaf lettuce, Romaine lettuce
  • Apiaceae: parsley, cilantro, anise, celery, chervil, cumin, dill, fennel, parsnip
  • Poaceae: wheatgrass 

Juice everything together, stir and enjoy! You can strain the juice if you’re not into pulp. 

I must admit, this is the best green juice I’ve ever tasted.

Don’t put to much ginger unless you like it spicy!
