We're not sure why-it probably has something to do with the juice-cleanse craze-but green juice is the reliever of all gluttonous and debaucherous sins. Ate at restaurants for dinner three nights in a row? Green juice for lunch. Drank a little too much at the office holiday party? Green juice for breakfast. Your wedding's in a week and you drunkenly had a bacon-cheeseburger at 3 a.m. last night? Green juice for every meal today. It's the color of health, all whirled up into a sip-able elixir. And these delicious smoothies and juices come in every combo: parsley, spinach, and berry; apple, kale, lemon, ginger; avocado and basil. So before you beat yourself up about eating an extra slice of cake at your kid's birthday (or, you know, just because), just make sure you have plans to go green.
