Ahhh, green juice. I love it so much!
Liquids have honestly been a massive game changer for me. I have a pretty awful system, and I know that if I need to give my body a rest, I just need to juice it up!
Although I’m pretty rubbish at actually doing this every day (mainly because I don’t want to clean my juicer!) starting my day with a green juice usually sets me up for a pretty good health day. There’s something so amazing about infusing all your cells with amazing plant goodness right when you wake up. And honestly, I can feel the difference every single time I have a juice. It’s like I’m giving my body exactly what it’s been calling out for.
This juice is not only insanely hydrating, it’s full of detoxing, anti-inflammatory and healing foods. Juicing also removes any fiber, making it easier for your body to digest – seriously, 15 minutes and your body is just flooded with the good stuff. However, if you want that extra fiber boost you can stir in a teaspoon of wheatgrass powder. Easy peasy!
If you don’t have a juicer you can still make juice! Just blend all the ingredients together and then strain using a nut milk bag.
1 large cucumber
4 stalks celery
1 large handful fresh mint
1 large handful fresh parsley
1 large handful fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 large stalk-1/2 head broccoli
1-inch chunk ginger (optional)
1 tsp Organic Burst Wheatgrass (optional)
Optional add-ins: sometimes if I want to really up the nutrient density of my green juice I’ll throw in a handful of watercress, rocket, romaine or kale. Generally, just look for super high nutrient dense greens and juice until your little heart is happy!
Wash everything and juice! I generally find that putting the herbs between the two apples to get the most juice out of them.
