Good Morning Green Juice (recipe)

What you'll need: 

2 apples
1 cucumber
1 lemon 
4 strawberries 
Handful of blueberries 
2-3 kale leaves (or 4-6 big leafy greens, or 2 baby bok choy, or 1/4 cabbage head, or whatever left-over green veggies you have)

Directions: Add the above ingredients into your juicing machine. The method of creating juice recipes are generally the same, layering these three basic parts:

Juice base: cucumbers and apples

Vitamins: kale/leafy greens + lemon (to balance the bitterness of kale/green leaves)

Options: strawberry (for sweetness), blueberry (for antioxidants)

Tip: juice the apples or cucumbers *after* the berries to strain out the berry flesh from the machine and maximize the use of the berries

Stir, pour over ice (optional), and drink with a straw (to temper the acidity on your teeth and gums). Enjoy!
