Since Ross bought me my Hurom slow juicer, I have been making a healthy juice per day. You can juice anything, but I steer very clear of anything other than fresh veg – people put in things like almond milk, yoghurt etc but that’s just extra calories. I also try and minimise on the fruit/fructose content, adding only enough to take the edge off the spirulina that I add every day! Spirulina is an algae that us meant to be wonder food so I try and take a dessertspoon every day, but it has to be heavily disguised.
I add ginger and turmeric to every juice for their antioxidant and anti-cancer properties
I also have to admit to not being fantastically fond of green juices, especially anything with celery in it which I can’t abide. But I will give a recipe for a green juice that is tolerably tasty!
Breakfast beet juice
1/2 large beetroot or 1 small, scrubbed and sliced
1 large carrot
1 inch of fresh ginger
1 inch of fresh turmeric
1 dsp spirulina (very optional!)
handful of wheatgrass (optional – it bungs up the juicer)
Slice the ingredients so that they feed easily into the juicer. Drink immediately, don’t store.
