Are you noticing the green juice movement happening around you? People are catching on to the fact that juicing helps reverse aging, reduce inflammation in the body and boost energy levels. This glass of goodness balances your pH and gives you a direct shot of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein and oxygen. Green juice is an incredibly healthy and invigorating way to start your day. If you have never tried one, I can assure you’ll love this juice. It tastes delicious, and you can feel your body flooding with nutrients. It has a wonderful alkalizing and detoxifying effect on the body!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

There is no shortage of nutrients in Giada's Detox Green Juice. Both spinach and kale provide ample fiber and protein. What is even more impressive is that their vitamin A (good for eye health) and K (good for strong bones) content is well over 100% of the RDA.

Green apples provide a tang that gives this drink a kick of antioxidants. It also has the power to regulate blood pressure, making this smoothie a treat for those who have or at risk for diabetes.

    Wonderful green juice recipe, Giada! I actually found this through Yummly and just had to come on here and leave a comment. Instead of weighing out the greens, I went ahead and just used a couple of handfuls of spinach and 4 leaves of kale. It tasted great!

    I love how you mention that green juice, such as this one, has protein inside of it. This is something that gets overlooked or ignored quite a bit. With the right amount of green vegetables, especially leafy greens, and a mix of other vegetables and fruits, all of the essential amino acids needed to build protein are present. Add in all of the other vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, chlorophyll, and everything else, and you have one of the healthiest beverages to drink on earth. Thanks for sharing this one, and I’ll be sure to share it with others.

    Happy Juicing!
