The purple cabbage is so incredibly nutrient rich that it should be one of our most loved ingredients in cooking and juicing. In fact, it has more vitamin C than oranges. Who knew? Continue reading “Purple Power Juice”
I can tell you straight away what attracted me to juicing in general and vegetable juice in particular. The very fact that you can get a whole day’s supply of vital nutrients disbursed into your system within a couple of minutes. To be clear, I am not talking a small glass here but a good 250ml or ideally 500ml, on an empty stomach. But then you’re so done! Continue reading “The benefits of a daily juice practice”
It’s easy to get totally carried anyway during this time of year. Lovely, scrumptious temptations are everywhere we look and it is hard to stay on the straight and narrow with drinks parties, mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas flavoured coffees all around us.
Following on from Dr. Junger’s advice of giving our digestion a bit of a break, I decided to finish off the evening the same way as I started my morning. With a juice! This time a pink one, courtesy of the beetroot from my Abel & Cole veg delivery. Beetroot adds a musty yet sweet flavour to drinks which I’ve always enjoyed but may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, beetroot is a potent detoxifier and blood purifier – a real immunity booster. It is packed with vitamin B and C, a liver cleanser and supplier of iron which can be beneficial for those prone to anemia. It’s beautiful colour makes almost any drink look appetising, just remember to handle with care, the beetroot juice is not for the sloppy handed and can stain skin and clothes which can be near impossible to get off!
Here is what went into this AM and PM’s juice:
Beetroot Dream Juice
1/2 head of celery
5-6 leaves of romaine lettuce
2 big handfuls of chopped kale
2″ ginger root
2 beetroot, uncooked
Juice and enjoy! Top tip: if you feel the pulp is still a bit wet, re-fill the juice chute with the pulp and juice again. You’ll be amazed how much extra juice you’ll gain by doing this. Night night. x
