Go Green for St. Patty’s Day!

Green fruits and veggies

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, who is not looking to don that green and get into the spirit? This year, instead of kegs and eggs, begin your day with a greens juice. Grab your favorite greens (and even your not-so-favorite ones as juicing can help disguise the taste) and toss them in a blender for an easy, nutritious “greensky”.  Begin with mild green veggies like celery and cucumber and add in romaine, spinach and kale.  Fresh lemon and ginger offer a nice kick and if you feel you need to mask the taste of greens add half a banana or apple to give your St. Patty’s drink a sweet punch!

NLT: You can do it! Make your own green juice today! Lean Green St. Patty’s Juice:  Try 1 cup spinach, 1 cup kale, ½ cup romaine, ½ medium cucumber, 1/2 Granny Smith apple, ½ squeezed lemon; blend and enjoy fresh!
