One of the surprise benefits of juicing is you tend to be more adventurous and experimental with vegetables.
This morning I added some Bok Choy to my Green is Great Juice (see recipe below.)
When I bought I did not think of its health benefits other than its green, it is a vegetable so it must be good. The previous times I had consumed Bok Choy was in overcooked, greasy, oily Chinese food.
The first time I juiced bok choy I could taste added freshness and crispness in my juice. Then I started steaming it for dinner and it is now one of my favourite veggies.
