Juice

Posted on Updated on

Drinking Juice is a great way to get extra vitamins and minerals in to your body. However not all juice is created equal.

Juice that you buy from the supermarket is full of preservatives and added sugars etc. Fresh squeezed juice is the way to go!

Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from fruits and vegetables. This is really important because most of us have impaired digestion due to less than optimal food choices over many years. This limits your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the food you eat. Juicing allows you to consume an optimal amount of fruit and vegetables easily enabling you to absorb all the mico-nutrients.

I use a regular juicer but for best results and to retain the optimal amount of enzymes and nutrient quality you can use a cold press juicer.

Here are some of my favourite recipes.

Refresher Juice

  • 1/2 watermelon
  • 2 limes

Detox Juice

  • 1 apple
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 small beetroot (and beetroot greens if available)
  • 1 small bunch of spinach
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 thumb of ginger

Orange and Mint Juice

  • 4 oranges
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 1 apple (or pear) for added sweetness.

Happy Juicing!

Jess.
