Love Joe’s Mean Green? Then You Have to Try this Juice

If you love Joe’s Mean Green, then you’ll love this juice too! This Mean Chard Juice is just as easy, nutritious and enjoyable. I use the chard (silverbeet) in place of the celery and kale to switch up my nutrient intake. Swiss chard has an excellent nutrient profile high in Vitamin C (70% RDA), Vitamin K (1400%), Magnesium (28%), Manganese (28%), Potassium (15%), B vitamins, Iron (14%), Calcium (7%) and Vitamin A (165%). This shows you just from 1 serve of juice only including the nutrition from the chard just how potent it is. Enjoy!
