Before we know it, summer will be around the corner which means it’s time to start getting bikini ready. We have found a great way to help shed those few extra winter pounds is by juicing fresh fruit and vegetables. Not only is juicing amazing for your health and weight-loss, it is also great for your skin complexion and especially helps you get back on track after a big night out. Juicing is also perfect for those who lead busy lifestyles, as it allows you to obtain the recommended amount of nutrients/vitamins in one quick glass. We recommend having juice that contains fruit in the morning and vegetable juice at night – due to the amounts of sugar fruit contains.
You can juice basically any fruits and vegetables, however these are a few which we personally recommend:
Apple, Orange, Pineapple, Watermelon, Carrot, Celery, Ginger, Beetroot, Cucumber (not as bad if you peel the skin), Spinach, Kale.
a. Ingredients: 3-5 Carrots, 2-3 celery sticks, 1 knob ginger, 1-2 beetroot (always peeled), top up with organic apple juice and some ice
b. Ingredients: 3 oranges, 3-4 carrots, 3 apples, 1-2 limes
c. Ingredients: 3 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 small pineapple, 1 Lebanese cucumber – helps clear sore throats
d. Ingredients: 2 oranges, peeled, 1 lemon, peeled, 1 lime, peeled, 1 ruby red grapefruit, peeled – morning cleanser
e. Ingredients: 1 golden delicious apple, 1 small handful spinach, 1 pear, 1 lime, 1 stalk celery,
¼ medium cucumber, ice cubes.
We hope you enjoy some of these recipes!
