The kidney does almost all the work of filtering our blood and maintaining proper balance of blood chemistry. Both of those organs excrete waste products from our body.

Ingredients
  • 2 handfuls of Kale (trimmed) 
  • 1 sweet apple (Fuji)
  • 1/2 lemon (approx. 2TB juice)
  • 1 small celery stalk (optional)
  • 1/2 banana (optional)
  • 1/2 C rice milk

Blend it up! Enjoy immediately.
