{Foodie Eats} Juice Supercharged with Greens

20120225-104621.jpg

Juicing is an awesome way to get lots of veggie servings and all their nutrition in a more efficient liquid form. This is one of my fave combinations: beets, celery, carrots with greens in-a-packet.  There are many juicing machines out there to choose from, we use the Jack Lalanne’s one that got as a present about 3 years ago and is still going strong. The only downside is the assembling, disassembling and cleaning of the machine. And I do recommend if you want the cleaning to be easy do it right away before pulp gets dried and you’ll be scraping for a while and might put your machine at risk.

Wanna superpower your juice? Enter GREENS IN A PACKET. They provide green super foods in a convenient form.  They are also great for providing nutrition on-the-go.  Mix with water, store-bought juice or freshly made juice.  I am also thinking about using them in food, maybe baking? I am just concern that cooking them might take away some of the nutrition.

There are many options for these you can find different brads at natural foods stores and Whole Foods Market. Their taste might not be the greatest, but the Isagenix Greens has become my favorite exactly because of that: the taste is superior to many of the ones out there and is a lot easier to swallow. They also have one of the best combinations of 33 SUPERGREENS {including chlorella, spirulina, wheat grass, chia seeds, ionic alfalfa} in 22 calories.  Helping you: boost your body’s ability to clear toxins, support healthy immune system, obtain a natural source of calcium, enhance digestive health, just to name a few.

Now we are off to one of my favorite Farmer’s Markets featuring Glaser Organic Farms.

Do you juice? What’s your favorite combination? How about the greens in a packet, have you tried them? How do you drink them?

    • I really like juicing beets, with carrots and celery is one of my faves. I also like cucumber it gives it this fresh taste. Green apples, spinach, kale, pineapple, tomatoes, I throw anything in there. If it comes out good I drink it slow and enjoy it; if not, I plug my nose and chug it 😛
