Today was a busy day with an audio/video interview for Brown Paper Tickets in Seattle. This fabulous local company will soon be releasing a video series featuring different chefs and foodies in the Pacific Northwest. Looking forward to seeing the final product. During the interview I made this delicious kale juice for day #5 of February's juice challenge.
There's a reason why kale has been popping up everywhere this last year. Whether it be in stores, rsetaurants or fine food magazines such as Bon Appetit and Savuer, kale was definitely a food trend and rightly so.
It is rich in vitamins A, C and K and has a good amount of calcium, iron, is an anti-inflammatory, very hydrating, and wonderful for the skin. So drink up and enjoy this beauty cocktail!
Makes about 24 ounces
3-4 ripe pears (depending on how sweet you like your juice)
1 head green kale
1 medium cucumber
1. In juicer of choice, juice all ingredients. Serve immediately and enjoy!
