Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hi Julie: Yes, you can use any green leaves like Chard, Collard, Spinach, Romain, baby lettuce greens. Keep us posted. Blessings, Rebecca
Spinach seems to be the favorite substitute as it is very mild in flavor and similar nutritive value to kale. I like chard a lot myself and since spinach and chard are very productive hydroponic plants, one or both are usually available year round. I have also used collard greens, initially because they are inexpensive where I live and they too are high in nutrients. I found they were also very mild in flavor and they make a lot of juice!
I saw on a website where someone used parsley as their green leafy vegetable. I use it, but in small amounts. I think it would be too strong for my taste as the main green.
I have recently become interested in wild edibles and have used dandelion and lamb's quarters as the main green for juicing.
I suggest you try a few options and see what you like. There's a great site for nutritional info at
Hi Lynda LaFon - Just wanted to let you know that the link you provided doesn't work.
I have heard that it is actually good to rotate your greens too. : )
