A Rose with Starry Eyes











{March 17, 2010}   kale lemonade recipe

Tracy Anderson has a strict formula for how to achieve what she calls the “Madonna hook” (a tiny diagonal muscle that juts out under the armpit) and a perky bum, but when it comes to the recipe for her famous Green Juice, it’s all pretty loose. Basically, if it’s leafy and green, it goes in, and there are no real measurements. The concoction goes down surprisingly easy and is unbelievably energizing.

Ingredients:

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Chard
  • Apple
  • Lemon
  • Ginger
  • Parsley

Directions: Juice all the items and combine. The combination should be heavy on the kale, spinach and chard, light on the apple, ginger, lemon and parsley. Drink at least once a day — or even better, twice a day, the first one for breakfast.

My personal input: Perhaps a small amount of spirulina should be added for protein; plus, doesn’t require juicing.

See “Gwyneth, Madonna and Me,” Jamie Rosen’s story about her Tracy Anderson fitness challenge.

Excerpt from article about Tracey Anderson in Harper’s Bazaar:

There have been times in her life when she has all but subsisted on the kale lemonade that makes her feel like a superhero, her skin velveteen.
