Kale Power Juice

Kale Power Juice

Juicing is having a moment in my house. And by a moment, I mean that we are drinking vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant-packed Kale Power Juice every day. I feel guilty for not sharing our fabulous new obsession with you earlier.

Kale Power Juice

It all started a few months ago when my husband and I got sick and started binge-watching documentaries.

[When I am sick, I prefer to binge-watch Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie (Obsessed!), and Downton Abbey, but Hubs doesn’t like those shows, so documentaries won out.]

We watched Forks Over Knives, Hungry for Change, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, and more. And the message just clicked: How can I possibly expect my body to stay healthy if I am not giving it the nutrients it needs to function optimally?

Kale Power Juice

We did some research (ahem: a lot of research) on juicers and settled on a Hurom Slow Juicer. While it is more expensive than a centrifugal juicer, it retains more pulp and creates more juice.

In order to make long-term changes, we needed to make gradual changes to our diet. We started juicing, eating less meat, and cutting back (drastically) on sugar.

I’ve done quite a bit of experimenting, some tastier than others, and I’ve developed my standard “go-to” Kale Power Juice. It’s tasty but still packed full of low-calorie, nutrient-rich vegetables.

Kale Power Juice

The majority of this juice is Kale, which is a nutrition powerhouse all on its own. It is an antioxidant; anti-inflammatory; a cell detoxifying agent; a major source of vitamin K (1,180% DV!), vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, and more; a significant amount of Omega- 3 fatty acids; and cancer-preventing glucosinolates. The body converts these glucosinolates into cancer preventative compounds. If you want to know more about kale, you can read more than you thought possible at The World’s Healthiest Foods.

    I need to follow your lead, but green smoothies scare me 🙂 I think I’ll start by adding some spinach…then maybe I can graduate to kale. I bet the carrots and ginger add great flavor and sweetness.

      They scared me too but I was surprised at how non-icky they tasted!! Spinach would certainly be a great start!

    I want to try some. I can imagine feeling so much healthier afterwards.

    I binge watch too (not just when I’m sick in bed). I get really addicted to certain Korean dramas, especially twisted ones with adultery, revenge, betrayal..components of a good story. They make me so eager to find out what happens next and I cant stop watching sometimes. I get too soaked in.

      Lol! Don’t think I only binge watch shows when I’m sick! I have been known to watch entire seasons of Gossip Girl, Revenge (you’d prob like this one!), Downton Abby. I definitely did it more before marriage though!No man can tolerate that much British period drama!

    The more advanced you become at preparing it you may want to add various types of cabbage, parsley, collard greens, dandelion greens, and mustard greens. These last items are quite bitter when taken by themselves, but in combination with fruits like cranberries, lemons, pear and apple are tolerable. Green juice is an excellent way to start your day, and to add nutrients that are omitted from many diets across the land.
