Energizing-Purifying Juice

Yield: 1-1/2 cups, 1 serving

2 celery stalks
1 carrot
1/2 cup chopped green or red cabbage
1/4 cucumber
4 kale or collard leaves
15 parsley sprigs
1/4 cup coarsely chopped broccoli stalk (one 4-inch piece)
1 small red radish, or 1 (1-inch) piece daikon radish (optional)
1 (1/4-inch) piece fresh ginger (optional)
1-/12 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (1/4 lemon;optional)

Juice the celery, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, kale, parsley, broccoli stalk, and the optional radish and ginger. Stir in the lemon juice, if desired. Alternatively, peel the lemon and put it through the juicer with the vegetables. Serve immediately.

**This juice detoxifies the body while providing needed nutrients and energy. It is a health-promoting daily breakfast and an energizing mid-afternoon snack. There are several ingredients in this juice, but to save time you can wash and cut the vegetables the night before. For a spicier juice, add the optional ginger and radish.
