This juice blessed my life through the inspiration of Rika Susan at Best Juicing.com.  She posted an article about the top 15 fruits and vegetables to juice (http://www.best-juicing.com/best-fruits-and-vegetables-to-juice.php).  I modified the recipe by adding two more ingredients.  The main ingredient is cabbage.  Cabbage?  In juice? Yep! Keep reading.

I didn’t know how awesome cabbage was until I made this juice and did a little research.  The cabbage family includes: broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage, Chinese cabbage, savoy cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi.  I knew broccoli was good…and Brussels sprouts of course…but just plain cabbage?
