RECIPES FOR GREEN JUICE AND SMOOTHIES
Honestly, I just throw in stuff I like, but that can’t always be the best in terms of digestion. Combining sweet and tart fruits is not advised, for example (Click for basic breakdowns for Food Combining: Written, Visual). Veggies are a no brainer, always add them. And here’s a tip: if you’re making a pure green juice, which is the best for your body and easiest to absorb, you can add green apple to sweeten the mixture without hindering absorbtion of the nutrients.
Here are some recipes I found online, but I say, just go with what you like! I know it says “juice” on the recipe, but you can always throw the same ingredients in a blender.
