Healthy Green Juice Recipe

08.20.14 by Jackie

My friend Carole and her husband have been so keen on making juices, she often gives me suggestions on how to create new drinks with my powerful blender. Today's healthy juice is a blend of pure, freshly pressed apple juice, fresh cucumbers, baby kale, spinach leaves, lime juice, chia seeds and a lot of ice cubes. 

The chia seeds add a beautiful consistency to the juice, which can otherwise seem a little flat. They are loaded with health benefits, so if you want to start the day on a wonderful note, take a few minutes to prepare this "superfood" drink and remember to consider adding more greens to your daily life.

Gigante Bean and Kale Salad Recipe Recipe

Unlike many items on fast food menus, this kale salad should cause no alarm if super-sized. Kale leaves are massaged and marinated in a delectable white bean vinaigrette. The beans used were very creamy inside, so I mashed a small portion to thicken the texture of the dressing.

These Greek white beans are unusually large (compared to the standard beans) and are aptly called "gigante" beans. They have a toothsome bite, which helped balance the texture of the salad. I also added sun-dried tomatoes for a pop of color. Serve this complete, nutritious salad with garlic toast and you'll have a light, healthy, yet tasty meal.
