Eating enough fruits and vegetables is sometimes hard to do - especially if you’re constantly on the run. This yummy juice recipe featuring superfoods like turmeric, ginger, and kale allows you to get in your daily dose of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants with minimal work.
If you don’t want to make the juice every day, I recommend making a double batch and freezing some in mason jars. I usually grab one as I’m heading out the door and it’s thawed by lunchtime - it’s the perfect afternoon pick me up!

Pro-tip: Don’t throw away the pulp! You can save them and add them to make stir-fry, soups, or even put them in smoothies for some added fiber. This not only minimizes waste but it also ensures you’re getting every last drop of nutritional value.
