Green Summer Detox!

July 31, 2016

With summer in full swing, now more than ever, is the time for GREEN JUICE!  Especially green juice that aims to detoxify the body.  What I love about this juice recipe (beyond the beautiful shade of green that resulted!) is the flavour punch it packs when lemon and ginger are combined together.

 

For more kick, simply amp up the volume of ginger root!

 

Why Juice?

 

Juicing is a fantastic way to make a nutrient-dense beverage in just minutes!  Juicing, unlike blending ingredients together, extracts the fibre, making the invaluable nutrients more bio-available (more readily and easily able to absorb) for the body.  In this state, the nutrients the juice contains are absorbed into the bloodstream within seconds.  For those who need to be careful about their fibre intake, there is no need to be concerned about fibre in this circumstance.

 

*Note:  It is more preferable to juice organic produce.  When juicing conventional produce, you are creating a very concentrated form of any and all pesticides the produce contains.

 

Key Micronutrients:

 

Cucumber:  beta-carotene, manganese, vitamin K

 

Celery:  vitamins A/C/K, potassium, folate

 

Lemon:  vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, citric acid

 

Red apple:  vitamin C, potassium

 

Ginger:  B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc

 

Ingredients (serves 1 ~ approx. 2 cups):

 

1/2 cucumber

 

4 stalks celery

 

1/2 lemon

 

1 red apple

 

1/2" piece of ginger

 

Preparation:

 

Wash all produce well and chop into pieces of appropriate size for the juicer at hand.

Juice ingredients, stir and enjoy!
