Getting Your Greens

This week I borrowed a friend’s juicer to see if I liked it. Rumor has it that juicers are annoying to clean-up, but still undaunted, I wanted to see if vibrantly fresh juice would affect my energy and overall appetite. We (it’s a family experiment) started off easily with fruit juices (orange/pineapple) and have now moved into fruit/vegetable combos (carrot/apple and carrot/apple/celery/parsley). My husband has already told me not to tell him what’s in the glass, because if I use the words beet, kale or wheatgrass, he’s gonna bail on me. Completely predictable and I love the chance to take on a challenge.

7 Daily Greens

If drinking your veggies is off-putting, at least fashion has given us another way to get our daily green fix, since hunter, forest and emerald greens are strong tones right now. Here are 7 stylish examples of how people are wearing it:

Using What You’ve Got

You’ve probably already got some deep autumnal greens in your closet. Time to dust them off and put into rotation. Pairs well with deep purple, peacock blue, black, white and wine.

If you’ve got a juice recipe that you love, please share it. I’d love to hear about it. Have a good one!

P.S. Today I’m going to try The Chiller (from The Juicing Bible) which is a combo of carrot/celery/red pepper/apple/cucumber/zucchini. Sounds like a salad in a glass to me. (photo:

  1. A timely post! I have two green items on my wish list. A pretty Irish green blouse from JCrew, and a pair of dark green jeans from Tory Burch. Waiting for the jeans to go on sale….


  2. Ah, yes. I remember when your mom and I “discovered” Adele Davis and juicing. My recent experience with juices has been in Central and South America where they combine who knows what for breakfast juice. All I know is that it is always muy delicioso!

  3. I just got a juicer, hoping to get my health tip-top by juicing more veggies. The boyfriend made me a delicious kale/pear/carrot/ginger juice and I need to get some more greens today. Thanks for reminding me with your glorious green fashion.

  4. Maybe if I got my juicer out and used it I would get over the flu! I liked that green maxi. Too young? Elaine

  5. Hey, we’re considering a juicer right now. I’ll just wait to hear how it goes with your family first. Please do share how you like it. :)

  6. Dreamy shades of green, Laura.

    Are you a juicing convert? Now that I have braces, I can’t eat hard food (i.e. apples, nuts etc) so I am thinking of a blender or a juicer. You simply MUST share your experiences :) :)

    • Edita,
      Oh I feel for you. I had braces as an adult and I know how sore it feels. I remember giving up crusty bread too. So far so good with the juicing, but I’ll give a better update soon. Keep the faith, E!
