Try this: Kale-pineapple juice
Check out three of Sharp’s favorite juice recipes, starting with this tasty, good-for-you concoction. Kale is packed with antioxidants vitamins A and C; pineapple is also high in manganese, which helps your body regulate calcium absorption, bone formation, and metabolism. What to blend:

• 1/2 bunch cilantro
• 1/2 cup pineapple, cubed
• 1 medium apple, unpeeled

Try this: Strawberry-lime juice
Like kale, spinach is rich in vitamins A and C. Strawberries, lime, and apple add even more vitamin C, making this a real immunity-booster, says Sharp. Last, apples, kale, spinach, and strawberries are high in potassium, which helps to prevent fatigue and maintains healthy blood pressure. What to blend:
