Tim Domini, Lunds 50th Street produce manager

Did you know for a moderately active adult male, the Center for Disease Control recommends eating two and a half cups of fruit and four cups of vegetables per day? Even though I’m surrounded by fruits and vegetables as a produce manager, I still find it difficult to make sure I’m getting enough of these foods in my diet.
That was until I discovered a simple and fun solution to the problem: juice them! Juicing is a great way to get all of the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables without having to prepare them. Not only that, but it gives you the opportunity to reap the health benefits of vegetables you may not enjoy eating.

Kale should win an award for being one of the biggest underdogs in the garden to take the leafy green world by storm. Kale is everywhere in the market these days. Curley kale, Dino kale, Redbor kale, kale chips; and then you’ve got your kale in soups, salads and smoothies and out west, trend setting natural foodies are starting to drink kale juice, straight up. Move over wheat grass.
