Incorporating lots of extra vitamins and antioxidants into your daily diet is a fabulous way to give your energy levels a great big kick. If you don’t have the time to fit in your all-important 5 a day, a super juice could be just what the doctor ordered. Juicing is fast, full of natural goodness and an amazing way to start the day. Here are three of our favourite juices designed to give you that crucial pick-me-up on sluggish mornings.
Leaf based juices can seem a little, well, gross. Especially for those of us who refused to eat our sprouts as children. But this big, green machine of a juice tastes fresh and it’s full of one crucial ingredient…Chlorophyll.
You might have thought Chlorophyll was only good for plants, but it’s an amazing substance which maximises the oxygenation of our blood. The more oxygenated we are, the more physical energy and brain power we have, so what are you waiting for? Go green!
You will need:
1 cucumber (whole)
8 celery stalks
1 handful spinach
1 handful parsley
1 handful kale
1 inch ginger
