kale, mint and an all-important apple.
Green juice is surprisingly filling. I drank it mid-afternoon and found it alleviated snack cravings. I experimented with spinach, spring greens, cavolo nero. In juice form, none tasted like the vegetables in question. Most likely it was psychological, but I felt healthier and more energetic, too. The biggest stumbling block is the cost of the equipment. I borrowed a US$480 Lakeland juicer, but could a US$40 juicer be worth it, too? “Definitely — 100%,” says Neill. Just drink it straight away, rather than storing it in the fridge, and bear in mind “you’ll need to juice more to get the same volume.” So now I’ve found an affordable compromise, my new green juicing habit is here to stay. Kale and spinach to go, please.
