Beat the bloat and add a zing to your step with this cleansing, refreshing and detoxifying green juice.
I have been welcoming in the new year with this little green beauty.
After a little Christmas excess and lack of movement nothing beats the feeling of sipping on a glass of goodness.
With this juice you can literally feel it too. It has a zing to it thanks to the lime as well a warmth and freshness. I find it really refreshing and energising.
Juices are a great way to start the day and some of the main benefits of juicing are:
You can take in the nutrients in high concentrations
The nutrients are in a highly absorbable form
You can consume far more nutrients in one sitting
In this juice we have some super powerhouses and ones which you may not normally juice with but that's the great thing with juices, there are no rules. Well maybe one, add lots of veg!
In this juice I have included ginger, parsley and fennel to help with digestion and bloating. Kale also contains Chlorophylls which helps to cleanse and detoxify the liver. Add to this, it is full of fiber, Vitamin C and Vitamin K (essential for bone health) and IS packed full of anti-oxidants.
What you waiting for? Dust off the juicer and get juicing.
