Can’t bear the thought of gnawing your way through another kale salad? Yeah, neither can we. We kind of wish we could give up on veggies and just eat chocolate all day (or fried chicken), but that whole “healthy living” thing is more than a little important.
Most of our favorite veggie-fused recipes are pretty easy to make. We prep our smoothies on the weekends, chopping all of the ingredients and putting them in plastic bags in the fridge. Then, every morning, we pull out our smoothie bag, toss all the ingredients in the blender, and have an instant smoothie.
Click through to see how easy it is to make your own veggie drinks at home, and say goodbye to your fear of the Food Pyramid!

This has the best name of any of the recipes we found. It just makes us happy. Don’t be dismayed if you don’t have a juicer. All you have to do is blend together all of the ingredients, then use a piece of cheesecloth or a sieve to drain out the pulp.
- 1 grapefruit, peeled
- 4 medium carrots
- ½ inch of fresh ginger
- ¼ teaspoon raw maca powder (optional)
Juice grapefruit, carrots, and ginger together. Place maca powder in the bottom of your glass and pour in the juice.
