Lemon Ginger Green Beauty Tonic

Cleansing and Fortifying




At first sight, this juice appears intensely green, but it’s mild and delicious (in a healthy way). Both cleansing and fortifying, this tonic flushes and hydrates the system to grow beautiful skin, hair and an inner glow. Romaine lettuce is mild and juicy; parsley is rich in antioxidant vitamin C, minerals and chlorophyll; cucumber is full of silica for beautiful skin and hair; celery contains an optimum balance of potassium and sodium to promote nutrient uptake in cells; ginger fires up digestion; and lemon is full of vitamin C and electrolytes to hydrate the body. Some prefer tart, green apples for their bright taste and lower sugar content, although any firm, organic apple is welcome.

Yields: 2-4 servings
1 head Romaine lettuce
6 stalks celery
1 cucumber
½ bunch parsley
2 organic green apples
1 lemon
1 inch of fresh ginger

1. Wash all of the produce. Separate the Romaine and cut the bottom stem into pieces that will easily fit through the juicer. Cut the cucumber into quarters lengthwise. Cut the apples into sections that will fit through the juicer. There is no need to remove seeds if the produce is organic.
2. Juice all ingredients in a vegetable juicer, alternating for easy processing.
3. Drink while the juice is fresh.
