“A few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me—a mix that’s better than any po’ boy you’ll ever eat,” Lively says. “Vegetables in their purest form are refreshing and palate-cleansing, while the sweet notes of the fruits and mint make this both quenching and intoxicating. Now I can get my dose of veggies in a delicious way.”

Ingredients:
1 cup kale
2 Swiss chard leaves
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 small beet
1/2 cup pineapple
2 green apples (use red for sweeter flavor)
1 sprig fresh mint
1/2 lemon, peeled

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a blender or juicer and process until smooth.

Ingredients:
3 kale leaves
1 cup spinach
2 Swiss chard leaves
4 apples (use green for less sugar)
1/2 lemon, peeled

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a juicer or blender and process until smooth.

“As an athlete, juicing is very important to me because I deplete my body with very intense training every day, and it’s impossible to optimize my training without fueling my body,” Richards-Ross says. “The ingredients I use are also good for skin and hair health, inflammation, and coping with stress. I can tell the difference when I’m on a consistent juicing regimen: I am more alert, my recovery is at it’s best, and I feel better.”

Ingredients:
1 cup spinach
1 cup parsley
1/2 small beet
2 apples
1/2 pear
4 carrots

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a juicer or blender until smooth.
