Mean Green Juice (For Juicer)

"This is the recipe for "Mean Green" juice used in the documentary "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead." I was a little nervous about trying it -- I couldn't imagine that a juice with kale in it would be palatable -- but it turned out to be delicious! That film has really gotten us into juicing."

    I have a Breville Juicer and it does an outstanding job. So When I make my Mean Green I Tend to only use 2 Kale Leafs. I also Use Red Apples it helps cut some of the tart taste out. This is just personal preference. Also I juice everything I don?t bother pealing or coring anything I found I does not make much of a difference. But again Personal preference cuts down on prep time. But Very good base recipe as most of you like me will tweak to personal taste.

    The base ingredients are very good, but sometimes that amount of kale and celery is just too much for me, so I put some pineapple to ease their taste, and this works out PERFECT! It is actually very pleasant to drink now :) Thanks!

    I've been drinking this juice every day for over two years. Personally, I don't think it tastes good, however, it's not about that for me. This juice changed my life! I've only gotten sick once in over two years! I no longer get colds, rarely get headaches, my sleep apnea disappeared (along with 90 lbs.), AND my allergies went away! I'm not on a single medication thanks to this juice. So glad I watched that documentary!

    I haven't tried the juice yet but I've ordered my juicer. I am sure I'm going to like it because I love all of the ingredients. I've been trying to lose weight since January without success. I have been on Atkins and have maintained my current weight but have not lost anything. I am hoping this will give my weight loss a boost.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>My husband and I live in Cambridge MA with our dog Archie. <br /> <br />I used to be a mediocre cook, with little interest in cooking ... then I joined Weight Watchers in Oct. 2006. I finally realized that to maintain my weight, I needed to find lots of extremely yummy, healthy foods that I enjoyed eating -- and the best way to do that is to learn to cook, and to learn to enjoy cooking. This web site has been 95% responsible for getting me there! <br /> <br />As of Oct. 2007, I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, having lost 70 pounds and weighing less than I've ever weighed as an adult. I owe a lot of it to the recipes I've found here! <br /> <br />Re: rating recipes -- I only give out five and four stars, and very occasionally three stars. I don't see any point in giving lower scores; I can't be sure a recipe has turned out badly because of something I've done. Besides, even if I don't like it, the next person might -- and if they see a one-star review, they'll never bother to try it. So I review the ones I've loved, and don't say anything about the ones that didn't work for me. <br /> <br />Hooray for vegetables! <br /> <br />. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
