I’m on the green monster train (read more about it at greenmonstermovement.com)! If you have time in the morning, a juicer and/or blender, and a desire to have 89 oz of liquid in your tummy by 6:30 in the morning then give this a go.
These photos were all taken with my iPhone. You’re going to hate the quality.
I’ve started making juice each morning. Kellen drinks his and I mix mine with handfuls of spinach and frozen berries in the blender. Here is how it goes down:
I pick and choose from a massive fruit/veg stash the things that strike my fancy for that day. It’s fun to announce to Kellen each morning what this morning’s juice is made from.
This morning’s juice had:
- 1 kiwi
- 3 stalks of celery
- 3 apples
- 3 oranges
- 3 carrots
- 1 pear
I make juice for two so if you’re mate doesn’t dig mounds of fruit that early you can just halve the amount.
Put the whole lot through your juicer.
This week I found a tropical frozen mix of mango, strawberry and banana at Whole Foods. I mix about 5 pieces of whatever frozen fruit/berry mix I have on hand with 2-3 cups (2 heavy handfuls) of spinach and half the juice.
What’s green, red, and goes 70 mph — I frog in a blender! Har Har. I know. That was in poor taste.
Put the whole thing in a glass and drink up.
I sometimes get hungry if I only drink a green monster for breakfast so I also ate a blueberry waffle with almond butter and a coffee with soy milk.
If you are still skeptical about this juice QUIT! It is a miracle. I have literally had half of my class out sick in the past two weeks with all sorts of illnesses and I have dodged every one.
