MARTHA STEWART GREEN JUICE
Martha Stewart has created a delicious green juice, traditionally made with a juice extractor. Blender Babes tested the famous homemaker’s green juice but kept all the fiber and other nutrition (in skin, seeds, etc.) and making it a whole juice green smoothie – and we think it’s pretty tasty! Try this recipe out in your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered commercial blender! We bet Martha sure missed her green juice while serving time in the clinker. It’s okay Martha, we all make mistakes. Blender Babes respects you owning up to them AND this wonderful addition to our green juice arsenal!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PARSLEY AND GINGER
It wasn’t until the Middle Ages that parsley was used as a food. Perhaps after an afternoon picnic and roll around in the grass, it somehow got mixed up with the food? Either way, we’re glad it stopped being just a garnish. Besides providing good levels of vitamins A and K, parsley also has several unusual, helpful components: volatile oils which can inhibit tumor formation, especially in the lungs; and flavonoids, which prevent cell damage associated with various diseases, including asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, and macular degeneration.
Ginger has many benefits unique to itself, lying in components called gingerols. Several studies show that ginger (fresh not dried) helps reduce nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy, and when used in tea, can relieve symptoms of the common cold and flu, as well as menstrual cramps, headache, and sore throat. Gingerols appear to be responsible for relieving inflammation associated with arthritis and migraine.
