I love drinking fresh juice; it gives you a vitamin shot and energy boost which I find even bulletproof coffee can’t rival!
You have to be quite careful that you juice the correct things, (i.e. more veg than fruit) or you are setting yourself up for a massive sugar hit and then crash. I like to juice in a morning, to compliment my breakfast; and I am especially partial to juices when i’m feeling under the weather.
You can juice pretty much anything, and it is great to get all those nutrients in, in one shot. Remember though folks- You should never juice as a substitute to eating real food!
Super Green Juice
All products should be organic, and washed properly.
Makes 1-2 glasses:
- 1 handful of kale
- 2 handful of brocolli
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 green apple
- 1 lime
- 1/4 cucumber
- Stick of celery
- powdered spirulina, chlorella and barley grass
- ( I use Ultimate Greens Powder from Lifestream) http://www.lifestream.co.nz/Products/Ultimate-Greens/default.aspx
Wack in a juicer, add the powder after, stir and serve with ice cubes!!
If you haven’t juiced before you can pick up a half decent juicer for around £60.00 from Argos/ other online stores. You can even get self-cleaning juicers if you’re happy to splash the cash. Top tip if you are on a budget- Make sure the juicer is easy to clean. If it takes over 5 minutes to clean, I guarantee it will sit in your cupboard gathering dust!
