Who Says You Have to EAT Your Veggies?

If you grew up anything like me, your parents forced you to eat your veggies or made you sit there all through the night until you finished. This of course was before kids were putting the Department of Social Services on speed dial.

Fast forward to the new millennium where they have appliances for everything under the sun: pancake makers, rice cookers, vegetable steamers and of course juicers. Juicing is a way to get many nutrients from high volumes of veggies in a single serving…and the best part, if you use the right mixture of fruits and veggies in your juice, it taste good enough so that your kid won’t have to sit at the dining room table all through the night playing face-off with their spinach and broccoli. LOL

I always put some sort of dark leafy greens in my “green juices”. Here’s a little background on kale. Turns out there’s quite a bit of science behind this super food – Kale is rich in many different things. The cruciferous veggie is an excellent, potent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids. Research shows that kale contains 4 different flavonoids with a variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. So Drink up but shhhh don’t let the kiddies know that its anything more than “green apple juice”. 🙂
