Skinny Sometimes’ Green Juice

It took me several weeks to figure out a green juice I could enjoy that had more vegetables than fruit. When I first started juicing I used mostly fruit. Let me tell you, it was delicious. I knew that to get the full benefits of juicing, it needed to be “green” juice, meaning mostly vegetables.


My very first week I used carrots, parsley, kale and apples. It was good, but still needed more greens! I made the mistake of adding a red bell pepper one day. I love bell peppers, but it really overtook the juice. It smelled like peppers and tasted like peppers. It’s gross to drink bell peppers.


The following week, I felt amazing from juicing I was ready to cram in all the nutrients I possibly could. I went a little crazy. Spinach, celery, cucumber, carrots, parsley, kale and beets. The first day, no fruit. IT. WAS. DISGUSTING. Mr. Fitness watched me suffer through drinking it. I had completely lost my appetite the entire morning after that. After that day, I added apples. It was still pretty gross. I drank it 6 days straight because that’s how much I had. I named it “The Beet Massacre.” I am pretty sure I will never eats beets every again or celery. I could dry heave just thinking about it.


I took a step back the next week, did some research on other green vegetables and got serious! My delicious combination turned out to be romaine lettuce, spinach, pineapple, lemon, cucumber and ginger. All of these have great health benefits.

    I hear about these kinds of green juices (the usual ones like spinach and apple), also with some lemon juice and GINGER. Whenever I think about the ginger going in there, I cringe.

    • I actually don’t like ginger either! But I think the lemon helps offset it. It has really great health benefits so I suck it up lol.

  • […] been wanting to try Sambazon juice for some time now. I’ve been adamant about juicing since the new year, but making fresh juice every morning is A LOT OF WORK. Laziness can outweigh […]
