Happy Friday!


Another beautiful weekend deserves a beautiful, clean start. 

Here is a great, healthy drink to kick it off, before the onslaught of late Autumn wine tours, spiced cider and hot toddies.

Believe me, your belly will rejoice and thank you later!

This is a great green juice recipe that I found and adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook 
"It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great"

Thank you Gwyneth for the 302 pages of guilt...
I mean, inspiration...


5 large leaves of kale, ribs discarded, leaves torn or roughly chopped

1 lemon, zest and pith removed
1 large apple (I used Honey Crisp), roughly chopped
1, 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped
1 sprig of fresh mint
1/2 cup water

Blend in a powerful blender or push ingredients through a juicer. Press the mixture through a fine mesh sieve and drink! YUM!

Have a great weekend everyone!
