Popeye’s Great Green Juice

Ready for another Green Juice?  Well, this one is truly Great!  Popeye would pop open that can of spinach and gulp it down thus producing those bulging muscles that would inevitably help him save the day!  Popeye loved his spinach but, he’ll have nothing on you if you drink this juice. You may not instantly produce bulging muscles but, I’m sure your muscles will appreciate the dose of vitamins and protein that you will give them with this juice that is packed with nutrients.  You will agree that the veggies that go into this juice are beautifully great as well.

 Great Green Juice

  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 cucumber, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 green apple
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 (1-inch) piece ginger
  • Several kale stems

Juice all ingredients in a juicer and gulp it down, making Popeye proud.

Luv ya.
