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.
- 1 Cup kale and spinach mixture
- 1 green apple (optional...to sweeten the juice)
- 1-2 Cup water (depending on what consistency you like)
- 5 lightly steamed broccoli florettes
Mix all ingredients in a blender until blended. Pour and serve.
You may also chill for a few hours or add ice cubes.
