Here’s the third installation of Juice Recipes and it’s a recipe I made up with what I had in the fridge today. Celery, Kale (one leaf), Cilantro, Granny Smith Apple and 1/2 a lemon. note: I peel my lemons so as not to make it too bitter and as always I take out the apple’s seeds. Always make sure to thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables, especially leafy greens.
I’m really making an effort to be creative with my recipes now and boy is it paying off because today’s green juice is just oozing with vitality. It was refreshing and invigorating. There’s no doubt this would be a ‘Hall-of-Famer’ should someone choose to create such a thing for homemade fresh vegetable & fruit juices.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the awesome nutrients and benefits for just 2 of the juice’s ingredients.
Celery: Packed with vitamin A, tons of B vitamins, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium….the list is really long! It’s anti-inflammatory, aids in digestion, extremely filling because of the high water content, helps get rid of toxins and excess fluid by acting like a diuretic which means it would help reduce blood pressure! yay 🙂
Kale: This is just a super green! I doubt there’s anyone who hasn’t heard how amazing and nutritious our dark leafy greens are! Here’s just a few benefits of this great green. It’s got vitamin A (boat loads!), vitamin C, vitamin K , Folic acid, potassium, calcium and iron. It’s an incredible anti-oxidant.
