This week, I needed some vitamins and a little detox. I've been having some weird muscle inflammation around my jaw, so I am hoping some good old fashioned nutrients will solve the problem.
Juicing has become one of my favorite rituals when I can tell my body is in need of some nutrients. It's definitely a process - rinse and wash the vegetables, put them through the juicer, can the juice, and wash the juicer (ugh. my least favorite part of anything ever).
If you don't have a juicer, don't fret. You can make this in a high powered blender. Blend all of the ingredients together, using a tamper to push things down. Add a bit of water if you need to, but it will slightly dilute the flavor. Once you're done, either drink it as a smoothie (if you're doing it this way, be sure to remove the apple cores) or filter through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer.
