Mean Green Juice ~ Meatless Monday

Mean Green Juice ~ from the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

I'd been looking for juicer recipes that included the superfood ~ kale ~ when I came across tons of posts that talked about the documentary movie ~ Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.  I remembered hearing about the documentary, but had never seen it.  I was intrigued & read a couple of the blogs.  Then I headed on over to the ReBoot With Joe site & looked around.  If you haven't seen the movie yet, I highly recommend it.  (you can watch it over on Hulu ~ if you're in the US)   Wow!  What an amazing journey Joe & Phil went through!  Certainly a lot of food for thought. (no pun intended ~ OK, pun intended :)

I made the signature ~ Mean Green Juice ~ and really enjoyed it.   It'll become a regular in my juicer recipe rotation.  Watch the movie & see for yourself how much these guys (and others who's stories where told) benefited from their juicing journey.  Very inspiring, indeed!   Good on ya, mate!

Mean Green Juice 

recipe adapted very slightly from the ReBoot With Joe site


  • 6 Kale Leaves
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 4 Celery Stalks
  • 2 Green Apples
  • 1/2 Lemon, peeled
  • 1"-2" piece of peeled ginger, depends on how spicy you like your juice

Feed your fruit & veggies down the shoot of your juicer & juice away!

Here is a great post from the blog ~ Macheesmo ~ that talks about the movie, reviews it & also has the basic recipe, but he makes his Mean Green Juice with his blender.  And for more variations on the original Mean Green Juice recipe, check out this site:)

  1. What a great movie, glad it was created. Seeing more people incorporate fresh green juices into their diet is amazing.
