Ever notice how all the veggie juice recipes have you throwing in something sweet? Apples? Beets? Loads of carrots? Well, toss that taste for sweet out of your lifestyle. On the contrary, we’re trying to ignore our addiction to sugars and carbs til it vanishes. Kaput.
So how, then, do you make green juice tasty?
Montreal’s Ricky Steinberg Tajfel, inspired by her studies at the Hippocrates Health Institute, now develops her own raw veggie creations. Sprouts are the key to her–and to Hippocrates’ elixirs. Here’s Ricky’s version of the perfect juice:
Ingredients (all organic):
1/2 fennel bulb
3 kale leaves
1/2 English cucumber
3 celery stalks
1 bunch sunflower sprouts
1 bunch pea sprouts
Options: 2 cloves garlic, slice of ginger and/or pinch of cayenne
Makes 4 cups. It’s best to drink soon after juicing so you might want to cut the recipe in half –and if you’re truly committed, make another half batch later in the day.
Ricky downs all 4 cups daily. No wonder her skin is perfectly glowing.
