It's no secret that I have a love affair with food, so much so that I spend a lot of my time trying out recipes and checking out new restaurants. But, every now and then I like to give my body a much-needed break from cheeseburgers and cookies by blending up a fresh juice.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with juicing - it's become a popular practice in recent years - but let me tell you, there is a reason why so many people love it! First of all, juicing is a great (and yummy) way to get your daily dose of fruits and veggies. Plus, drinking juice allows the nutrients to be absorbed into your body faster than whole foods. Not to mention, it makes you feel fantastic - totally rejuvenated, energized and healthy from the inside out. Speaking from personal experience, juicing has an undeniably positive effect on the way my body feels, my skin, hair, nails, overall energy level, and my mood.
Here's one of my favorite recipes. It's fairly simple but delicious, and really good for you!
1 piece of ginger
A stalk of celery (3-4)
3 kale leafs
1/2 lemon seeded
1. Put the ingredients into juicer one at a time. Stir well and enjoy!!
Pro tip: I like to mix in some flax seeds, chia seeds and goji berries for an added nutrients and energy boost.
If you haven't tried making your own juice yet, I highly recommend giving it a shot! If you're an experienced juicer, give this one a whirl, let us know what you think and if you have a favorite recipe, please share!!
