So you have all heard me talk about my take on the Phil Staples Mean Green Juice recipe. What I call the ‘Hail the Kale’ but in honour of Mr Staples I am now going to call the ‘Phil Staples Juice‘. I hope Mr Staples does not mind that we have named our favourite juice in honour of him. (By the way I am British living in the USA so sorry for still using the Queens spelling
I asked a dear friend of mine, Angie to write a review on the Phil Staples Juice. I made her a glass and I wanted to make sure this was not just me loving this recipe. I used to have an addiction to rootbeer you know. In my pre juicing life when I came on holiday to the USA I would guzzle gallons of the stuff as you cannot find it very often in Europe. My British friends hated the taste of rootbeer, I loved it so maybe my taste buds are off..
So this is what Angie thinks of the Phil Staples juice:
“Hail the kale, indeed! Yesterday I got the pleasure of tasting the Running On Juice version of the now famous Phil Staples green juice recipe. Unlike most folks, I’ve become used to tasty juices/smoothies dressed in green.
My juicing/health guru Shane, served up a creamy mixture of freshly juiced kale, cucumber, celery, apples, lemon…then into the blender with ice, chia seeds (yes like the chia pet), hemp seeds and a little frozen pineapple. It was cold, tangy, slightly sweet, delicious and the perfect way to start a warm summer day! I felt great, even skipped my usual morning coffee and that rarely happens on purpose.
At lunchtime I was craving another Hail the Kale juice. Since I was far from my juicer, I settled on a raw veggie sandwich. I think starting the day with a healthy green juice set me up for healthier choices through out the day. By the end of the day I still felt energized and even did a late evening workout! Thanks for sharing your Hail the Kale with me, defiantly a tasty juice with all the goodness you’ll need for a busy day. All hail the kale!”
So I am glad that its not just me, Angie is quite a foodie you know so this is high praise. Have you tried the Phil Staples Juice yet? Why not tell us how you liked it?
