How great are phone chats with old friends? One of my gorgeous girlfriends called this morning and reminded me to hurry up and post a few of my favourite juice recipes. And where better to start than with green?
The first time I ever tried celery juice was after immediately after watching an Institute for Integrative Nutrition lecture by legendary raw foodist, David Wolfe, who declared it an incredibly powerful alkaliser. If I recall correctly, I had overindulged a little in champagne and vegan party food the day before (oops!) and I needed a magical boost.
Quick! To the juicermobile!
I’m a huge fan of lemon and ginger in all of my juices but my lovebug prefers an apple, so we decided to throw them all in (as well as half a gorgeous yellow beet we found at the farmers market) and hope for the best. Eight crossed fingers and a whizz bang later, we had two large glasses of incredibly delicious and healthy juice.
If you’re new to green juices, have fun experimenting with your favourite green veggies – think zucchini, cucumber, kale, and spinach, and herbs like parsley or coriander/cilantro.
Any combo you choose is guaranteed to make you feel amazing.
Sparkle on, beautiful! xx
