Dear Sir or Madam:
This is SUCH a refreshing green juice recipe that was inspired by the fact that we were craving parsley and fresh out of sprouts. You don’t need to worry about exact measurements when it comes to green juice, just get the ingredients and juice away! ALWAYS use organic produce. :)
1-2 Celery Sticks
1 Bunch of Parsley
Handfuls of Spinach
Lots of Kale
1 Green Apple
Juice All Veggies and Squeeze in the Lime.
ENJOY – REFRESH – BEAUTIFY
Parsley is SO much more than a garnish. It has POWERFUL healing properties that help purify blood, kill bacteria, boost immune system, improve digestion, detox the liver and soooo much more. I have been CRAVING it lately, so I came up with this recipe that is gluten free and totally raw:
2 cups of curly parsley (1-2 bunches depending on size)
1/2 white or yellow onion
1/2 cup small cherry tomatoes sliced in half or quarters
1/2 cup sprouted quinoa
1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
Tips to the Cook: Leave out the cacao (raw chocolate) to make other flavors. Add 2 pints of fresh strawberries or blueberries (fresh or frozen) for a strawberry or blueberry mousse. Add 2 vanilla beans and a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice for a tasty vanilla flavored mousse. Make a layered mousse with two or more flavors. This mousse can be served chilled or frozen. Thaw for a few minutes before serving, if frozen. It takes 3 or 4 hours to firm-up this mousse in the refrigerator.
Tips to the Chef: Start early as the seeds will need to soak for 3-6 hours. “Black Sesame Seed Dressing” can be made thick and served as a paté, just leave out the water, or it can be made thin by adding water to serve as a dressing. This dressing can be made with any color sesame seeds; white, yellow, brown, red or black. Each will have it’s own nutritional profile, texture and look.
1 cup fresh basil leaves
Blend All until Smooth: In a blender, put all the ingredients (except the water if making a paté) and blend until smooth.

An amazing alchemy happens when you culture (ferment) foods. Foods become easy to digest, vitamins increase, enzymes abound, antibiotic and anti-carcinogenic substances are produced and lactic acid (a major by-product of the fermentation process) feeds the micro-flora in our intestines where they stimulate the production of vitamin K and the B vitamins that our bodies need for good health. Our intestines are 70% of our immune system. When we feed our friendly micro flora we are building a strong immune system.
