Hidden in this green juice recipe (because you can never have too many of those) is one of fall's best ingredients: a Granny Smith apple. It's just one of the energizing ingredients found in this juice, made by Marra St.Clair and Lori Kenyon-Farley, certified nutritional consultants and co-founders of USDA-certified organic Ritual Wellness Cleanse. St. Clair and Kenyon-Farley say to drink this green juice first thing in the morning, "as the lemon gets your metabolism started and the leafy greens provide essential vitamins and minerals to energize you for the day."

Spinach Kale Broccoli Juice
Dark leafy greens like spinach and kale and the cruciferous broccoli are rich in many antioxidants and are important in supporting visual wellness. Like beets, they contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which actually absorb blue light that would have been harmful to the retina. See 9 Drinks That Will Improve Your Eye Sight.

Kale
Kale is one of those vegetables that gets a bad rap. Many people claim it’s bitter and hard to cook, but give kale a chance. While it’s a bit more toothsome than many of its leafy green counterparts, kale has a great spinach-like flavor. Kale is also a vitamin powerhouse packed with Vitamins K, A, and C as well as loads of fiber. Kale may even lend a hand in lowering cholesterol and preventing some cancers. When shopping for kale, look for smaller, dark green bunches that are firm to the touch. If you don’t eat bacon, add two tablespoons of olive oil in its stead and salt to taste. This recipe also works very well with Swiss chard, turnip greens, and other hardier leafy vegetables. Serve as a wintry side or even as a meal on its own with a piece of crusty bread.
