It’s important to “eat a rainbow”, so you should include carrots, beets, and ginger, but make sure that the lion’s share is green: celery, kale, swiss chard, spinach, brussels sprouts, broccoli.
Green juice is an acquired taste for most, but as soon as you reduce sugar in your diet, you will find it more palatable. Don’t give up on yourself! Keep tweaking the juice to find a combination that you like. If you’re just starting out, use mild veggies, like celery and cucumbers.
If you’re willing to be more adventurous, try red leaf and romaine lettuce, spinach, and escarole, parsley and cilantro. Once you’re in the swing, you can experiment with kale, collard, dandelion, and even mustard greens, which are quite bitter. Start with just a few leaves and combine them with some sweetness, like pineapple or apple. Limes also help mask bitter flavors.
