Like many others I have read about the health benefits of green juicing. So since my indulgences over our long weekend has been quite taxing on my body, I thought it was finally time to begin this daily juicing ritual.
Due to sheer laziness (hate cleaning) I have avoided using this juicer that I was gifted to me well over 2 years ago. You are required to cut you fruits and vegies in narrow pieces and then washing the juicer itself is a bitch. I find the preparation and cleaning so much easier with a blender.
That said it’s manageable if you prepare your fruits and vegetables in advance plus the feel good factor once you’ve enjoyed your drink makes it all the worth while. The juice pulp can also be used in your sald mix which is exactly what I will be doing today. Best part is- it’s already all chopped up.
So whats in this green juice
2 celery stalks (with leaves on)
1 big handful of spinach
2 golden kiwifruits (skin on)
2 pink lady apples (skin on)
1 pear (skin on)
Its fresh, delicious and goes down easy. My little tot enjoyed some too.
Makes 2 glasses and its recommended to consume on the day for maximum benefits.
Thanks for reading and I hope this post has inspired you to begin juicing.
The biggest challenge this week for us has been dealing with my not so happy teething bub. It’s her 1 year old molars so I bet they do hurt. Poor little squirt.
I have been told that kids tend to loose their appetite when they are teething among other things which has definitely been the deal for us. My only advice through this ordeal is to not give up on trying to feed them food and give them fluids. Preferably foods that are healthy and soothing for their teeth like watermelon! I served up some watermelon for afternoon tea and looks like it worked a treat 🙂 I will definitely let you know if I do come up with anymore bright ideas.
