View Full Version : Juicing Kale HELP please (detox question also)
11-25-2004, 04:17 PM
I am juicing kale and wondering if anyone knows if it should be done like a wheatgrass shot is done......? It is a horrible taste, I just know I will benefit if I keep it up!
Another question: When I got to the restroom, well, I am on my 27th day of eating raw and my pee does not smell like roses! Is this just detox? I have just noticed it the last week.
any help or suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

I went through that too during my juice fast, I am over it now, so it probably is a sign of detox.

You don't have to drink the kale juice straight up...try mixing it with something else like apple or tomato, etc. I've heard some say that your greens mixed with a little lemon juice, sea salt and an apple (I think that's it) helps it tremendously. Are you juice fasting? If not, you can also mix kale in smoothies...adding a date or two cuts out the slight bitterness of kale...adding flavorful fruits (strawberries or other berries for example) cuts the "greeny" taste! I LOVE kale and spinach in my smoothies.
As for the unusual-smelling pee-pee, it more than likely is your body cleaning something out. Congrats on day 27!!

I juice kale too. Sometimes I hold my nose and do it like a shot, (heehee)then quickly eat a slice of orange. I only do this when I don't have time to make a smoothy (definetly with bananas to hide the taste!) :eek:
