Cameron is at an age where he eats voraciously, but he won’t necessarily eat all the things he needs for all the proper nutrients, PLUS he doesn’t have all the necessary teeth to make certain foods happen, even if he does like them. Spinach, for example, is one of those things he really likes but can’t chew well enough because he lacks the extra molars.
For this reason, I thought I’d try a simple juice recipe just for him (okay, a little for me, too), and by golly, it worked!
Simple Green Juice
• 5 Green Apples (I like granny smiths and I like them refrigerated ahead of time)
• 1 bag (4 cups) of baby spinach
• 1 lemon
Toss it in your juicer (my juicer recommends alternating high speed items, like apples, with low speed items, like lemons & spinach, so I did it apple, spinach, lemon, apple), pour it back & forth between your sippy cup/glass (with or without ice), and enjoy. Easy peasy, no?
