I start my all my days with this recipe from Kimberly Snyder. I make large batches and freeze them in containers, then thaw for each day. I highly recommend trying this to improve your health!

Ingredients
-1 1/2 cups water
-1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped

3-4 stalks organic celery

-1/2 head of a large bunch, or 3/4 of a small bunch of spinach
-1 organic apple, cored and chopped
-1 organic pear, cored and chopped
-Juice of 1/2 fresh organic lemon (optional, but helps improve taste for newbies)

1 cucumber

Optional
-1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems okay)
 OR
-1/3 bunch organic parsley (stems okay)

Directions

Add the water and chopped head of romaine to the blender. Starting the blender at low speed, mix until smoothi. Gradually moving to higher speeds, add the celery, apple and pear. Add the cilantro and parsley, if you are choosing to add them. Add lemon juice last.

The fruit and lemon cut right though the grass taste. Feel free to mix and match different greens and fruits, as these two specific food groups combine well.
