Greens Juice Recipe

"unlike the other drinks featured in this chapter, this is a recipe for a green juice, as opposed to a smoothie. so you'll be using your juicer here--not your high-speed blender. when i first began drinking green juices, i had to incorporate a substantial amount of apple to this one to make it appeal to my taste buds. but day after day, i noticed my palate being cleansed of my cravings for sugar, and the apple started to taste sickeningly sweet, so i removed the apple bit by bit until it was all greens. after several months of drinking this every morning, i could actually taste every single ingredient in it with a newly refreshed palate, similar to the one i had as a child. i started to really crave my morning greens.
