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."
