The popularity of juicing is on the rise, whether as a detox and cleansing tool or a way to promote weight loss. We like it too. But, call us old-fashioned, we still like the heft that solid food offers.
Raw pumpkin seeds are super-satisfying and good sources of protein, as well as iron, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, copper, and potassium. As with all our recipes, your ingredients may vary so don’t be shy about substitutions, additions or deletions.
4 leaves kale (lacinato, curly or your choice), thinly sliced
2 cups arugula or leaf lettuce, chopped
2 carrots, sliced thinly and chopped
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
4 broccoli florets, chopped
4-6 garlic scapes, chopped (optional)
1/2 lemon (optional 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Layer all ingredients starting with kale, arugula (or lettuce) and building from there. Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze lemon (or vinegar) on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
