Ingredients for one serving
- 1 head romaine lettuce
- 4-5 stalks of green kale
- 1 lemon
- 2 SWEET apples
- 3 inches or more of fresh ginger
The above amount is for one drink. This is how I make it instead. I buy 3 heads of romain lettuce, 20 stalks of green kale, 6 apples, 3 lemons, and 9 inches of fresh ginger. I juice all of this and make approximately 64 oz of green lemonade. I then use the water bottles from Sam’s Club (the small ones, usually around 8 oz each) and I fill up eight of these empty bottles with the juice. I then store the bottles of juice in my freezer and before I go to bed, I take one out and put it in the fridge so that its thawed out by morning and ready to drink.
This works out the best because juicing is a pain to clean up afterwards so with this method, you only have to clean up once a week . I could talk forever about why this is so damn healthy to do, but I’d rather you read up on it and see for yourself. I got the recipe from the book below!

However, many people who are intrigued by raw food simply don’t know how to make the transition from what they’re eating now, or how to achieve the benefits of eating raw without giving up their lifestyle or the foods they love. Natalia Rose, an in-demand nutritionist, shows how in The Raw Food Detox Diet. Whether your diet is primarily made up of meat and potatoes, or tofu and tempeh, you can incorporate the flavour and lasting health benefits of raw food into your life.

Raw food helps to detoxify the body by flushing out these poisons and setting us back on a course toward greater energy, clearer skin and shinier hair, and a slim, natural figure. But making the transition to a raw diet too quickly can have negative effects on the body. Instead, the healthier way is to make a gentle change based on your previous diet and current needs. You do not conform to The Raw Food Detox Diet; it conforms to you, and you choose how far you want to go. Whether you’re looking to live an all-raw lifestyle, or just to improve your energy and shape while still eating the foods you love, this groundbreaking diet book will energize and inspire you to achieve your goals safely and easily.The first book from top Manhattan Nutritionist, Natalia Rose.
