The mean green juice is terrible to me. Is there a good substitute? I think it is because I can't stand the taste of celery in my drink (I tried reducing the celery and that did not help as I could still taste it)
In the Mean green recipe 16oz is a serving and has approx. 310 calories. I pour mine over a lot of ice and it fills a mason jar to the top then. The recipe usually makes about 24 oz for me, but it depends on the quality of the veggies and how big the lemon is :)
Substituting Kale...if you don't have kale you can use any kind of greens. Collard greens, turnip greens, tops from beets (beet greens), spinach, cabbage, chard, chicory, escarole...any of the dark lettuces (not iceberg lettuce).

This is my first day on the juicing fast and this recipe tasted a lot better than I expected! I, too, don't have kale, so I used a couple handfuls of spinach instead. I also don't have ginger, and the juice tasted fine.

Hi, I just saw the Fat-Sick movie and am inspired. Not sure if I can do a fast but intend on drinking a full glass with every meal to take up 1/2 the calories. Sort of a mini-fast I guess. Are you the lady in the film?
1 Bulk of kale 4 Stalks of celery 1 Cucumber 2 granny smith apples ˝ lemon Ginger root (thumb sized)
( If your using a Blender add 1 cup of water ) you can purchase a Paint strainer (mesh) at any hardware store, at Home Depot, a pack of 2 sell for about $2.89 (one Gallon) Once juice is blended pour the juice into the paint strainer and squeeze the juice into a cup or bowl. Then ENJOY!
(cut up apple, celery, cucumber to fit in blender (or juicer) ALSO .... tear kale into small pieces)
