Juice Trio

This week I bought ingredients to make 3 different juices. One of the juices is broccoli based, one is lettuce based, and one is spinach based. I am always a fan of variety, so I chose 3 bases that can share similar ingredients. In addition to the broccoli, lettuce, and spinach I bought apples, cucumbers, lemons, and pineapples. In addition to giving myself a variety of flavor by choosing 3 different types of greens, I am also giving myself a variety of nutrients. Each green is higher in different nutrients.

Spinach provides Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Iron, and Potassium.

Broccoli provides Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, Vitamin A, Manganese, and Potassium.

Lettuce provides Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.

If you plan on making a lot of juice in a week I recommend buying ingredients that can be easily interchanged. Buy multiple types of apples, multiple types of citrus, and multiple types of greens. It’s fun to never have the same juice twice!
