Are you consuming enough carbs?

Green Juice is a great way to make sure you are taking in enough carbs and it is super simple to make. It is also a great way to get your kids to "eat" their veggies!

You don't need a fancy juicer or blender to do this either!

I went out and bought a Black and Decker blender on sale for around $20.

If you have never done this before and are used to drinking sweet smoothies you may have to do some trial and error to figure out what you like.

The ingredients in the Green Juice I made in the image were:

1cup of Spinach
1cup of Kale
A tiny bit of Parsley
1 Basil Leaf
1/2 a Green Apple
Some Diced Pineapple and a little Pineapple Juice
1/2 Banana
1/2 an Avocado
A tiny bit of Ginger
1/2 Squeezed Lemon
Some crushed ice and a little water

You want to layer the ingredients, lightest on the bottom, heaviest on the top. This way it will help push everything down when blending.  

I have never used a juicer, but I have heard they are more messy and waste a lot of the food. With the blender you use skin and all, and don't waste anything.

These would be super easy to Zone as well. If you would like me to Zone one please comment!

*You cannot taste the Spinach or Kale. The Avocado gives it a more smoothie type consistency. You can use coconut water, milk, almond milk in place of the water.
