Good Morning! Green Juice!

GOOD MORNING WORLD! Who doesn’t love juice? (rhetorical question)! Juicing is a magical way to help your body soak up vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients in an easy and efficient way. It is also a great way to eliminate toxins from the body while cleansing or detoxing. Talk about being beautiful from the inside out! And for all you vegetable haters out there, this is a great way to ensure you are getting your recommended daily amounts of fruit and veggies each day. Although, I do not resonate with recommended daily amounts of fruit and veggies. One should eat an unlimited supply of whole plant foods every day to fill there hearts desire. But thats just me! BOH!

Benefits:

Kale– Um, kale is a champ on the ORAC rating! (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)! Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and mineral! Nice

Spinach– Great brain food! -Potassium, Iron, Folate, Vitamin A, Zinc, Copper

Celery– Incredibly alkalizing and helps balance the bodies pH levels. Also very hydrating

Romain- Serving per serving has more vitamin C than an Orange (WHOMP, WHOMP)

Apple- An apple a day keeps the doctor away

Lemon– Great for digestive system, helps keep a healthy immune system and gives you better looking skin. If you can, toss the whole lemon- peel included in the juicer

Parsley- Anti-infalmatory- good for aches and pains and helps control blood pressure. A “chemoprotective” food

Spirulina– PROTIEN- no need for protein powder when you add this baby! Also high in chlorophyll which removes toxins from the blood. And how can anything this green be bad for you? (again, rhetorical question)

Chlorella– Detox! Improve immunity, alkalinity, and inflammation. It also promotes the production of healthy flora, bacteria and probiotics throughout the digestive system. See you don’t need yogurt!

Toss everything in your juicer and enjoy! I added the Pea Shoots and Mint for a hint of sweetness and flavor after processing in my blender. You wouldn’t get much juice form these if put in the juice!

Stay healthy and stay happy.

xoxo,

SSP
