Simple Green Juice

Simple Green Juice made with just three ingredients (cucumber, parsley, and lemon) is ultra refreshing.

Happy New Year! Just in case you are still deciding on your New Year’s resolutions, I found a bunch of quick and easy ones in Esquire Magazine.

  1. If you’re going to sit naked on a couch, put a towel down
  2. In emails, use capital letters at the start of sentences, except when in a real hurry
  3. Join a gym. (I’m not saying go. Just join.)
  4. Chew your food two times more per mouthful
  5. Forgive yourself sometimes

And a bonus resolution? Maybe drink a bit of green juice when you’re in the mood. Here’s a recipe to help you out.

Simple Green Juice
Ingredients
  • 1 bunch parsely
  • 2 cucumbers (I leave the peel on)
  • 1 lemon (remove yellow part of skin)
Instructions
  1. Push parsley, cucumbers and lemon through a juicer
  2. Serve

I now use a Breville juicer which works well enough.

The reason I remove the yellow part of the lemon skin is that it can be very bitter when juiced. I leave the white part of the skin on as it full of healthy bioflavonoids. This tangy, refreshing juice is great with breakfast, as an afternoon pick-me-up, or any other time of day.
