In honor of World Vegan Day, I wanted to share with you my favorite green juice recipe. Green juice is an excellent source of nutrition and a super easy way to add in more vegetables to your diet. Green juice is how I start every morning. It’s my current healthy addiction!

But before I share that with you, I also feel compelled to say, no matter what diet you choose, as long as you are making healthy choices, that’s really all that matters. I don’t question why you drink milk or eat meat. I don’t look down on you for doing so. I’m not asking you to understand why I don’t eat those things, I’m just asking you to accept it. You don’t have to ask me why I chose to become vegan like it’s the most foreign concept you’ve ever heard. People choose a certain diet and lifestyle for all different reasons. My choices are based on what I believe to be the healthiest for me. In all honesty, I’m no longer 100% vegan, BUT, that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate today. Many aspects of my diet are vegan. I choose healthy! All I ask is if you aren’t vegetarian or vegan, the next time you find out a friend is, just respond with “awesome” and move on. Don’t ask how they get their protein, why they chose that diet, or what they eat in a day. We don’t hound you about your diet or preach to you why you shouldn’t be eating meat. Just food for thought, that I needed to say. 😊 💜

Green Juice

This recipe works best using a masticating juicer, but any juicer will do. Don’t try using a blender as this will be extremely thick and way too much! (This is the juicer we have and love it!)

1 lemon, peeled
1 lime, peeled
2-3 large handfuls of fresh baby spinach
4 celery stalks
2 cucumbers, peeled
3 kale leaves
3 purple kale leaves
5 red leaf lettuce leaves
½ cup parsely
1-1in x 1in cube of fresh ginger, peeled
4 pink crisps apples

Makes 6, 1-cup servings

Rinse all ingredients and cut larger ones into manageable sizes that will fit into the top of the juicer. Feed all ingredients into your juicer. Note: it doesn’t matter in what order you feed the ingredients into the juicer as they will all blend together in the end. Store juice in a large mason jar in the refrigerator for up to three days.

I also hope you’ll explore some of the great vegan recipes I’ve shared on my blog!
