Vegan Carrot & Kale Juice Recipe

Carrot-Kale Juice from Fat Sick & Nearly Dead

Carrot-Kale Juice from Fat Sick & Nearly Dead

I cannot take credit for this greenish orange concoction, nor do I think I would want to be known for it’s invention 🙂  Joe Cross, the documentary film maker who gave us Fat Sick & Nearly Dead, takes home the honor of this juicy juice.  You can read all about him, his quest for health, and even get a link to watch his documentary for free here:  http://fatsickandnearlydead.com/

Now, I will not lie to you and tell you that this glass full of goodness tastes good…….because to me (and Casey) it tastes like dishwater.  However, there comes a time when you have to ask yourself, “do I want to be healthy and glorify God’s temple, even if something doesn’t taste like a glazed donut?”  I think that the answer should be yes…….and this is coming from someone who loves unhealthy food.

The total upside to drinking this juice, besides the amazing health benefits, is the fact that you don’t have to actually eat all of those vegetables!  I am not a big vegetable eater, except when they are swimming in butter, or deep fried.  So, by drinking them, I get to guzzle them down without really tasting them or having to endure all of that yucky texture.  We usually drink this recipe for lunches.

YOU NEED A JUICER FOR THIS RECIPE!  We picked up a very good Jack Lalanne Juicer from a thrift store for $20, and those things cost $100 in the store!  Always check out your second hand shops, as people will sometimes give juicers away after a failed diet attempt.

Carrot-Kale Combo
1 Green Apple
3 Handfuls spinach
6-8 Kale Leaves
4 Large Carrots
1 Piece Ginger (thumb sized)

It would take you three meals to eat all of the vegetables that going into one serving of this juice!

Wash all of the vegetable thoroughly.  Cut apple into 4 pieces and discard seeds.  Cut off tops of carrots,  and cut into 4 pieces each.  All other vegetables can go into the grinding shoot as is.

This serves (1) adult or teenager, in a tall glass.  If you want to give it to your younger children, it will serve two of them in a juice glass.

Enjoy!  Or, at least know that you are giving your body a very healthy lunch 🙂
