GREEN GENIUS

My favourite way to start my day is with a glass of freshly pressed juice that I make at home in my kitchen with the help of my trusty juicer. Drinking all of those bright-colored, nutrient-rich fruits and veggies all at once gives me a boost of natural energy that makes me feel great and starts my day off on the right foot.

With that said, here’s a juice recipe that will give you a natural pick-me-up and get you going!

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 cups fresh torn kale or spinach

  • 1 Granny Smith apples

  • 1 cucumber 

  • Slice of lemon 

  • ginger root to taste

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a juicer. Serve it chilled

Makes approximately 10-12 ounces of fresh juice 


BEET IT

Beetroot juice is the emperor of all energisers, shown to increase stamina, boost brain power and even lower blood pressure. Combine it with the sweetness of apples, with an antioxidant shot of carrots and the rejuvenating tang of fresh, zingy ginger to really get you back on your feet – fast!
This juice is dark, sweet and tangy. Serve garnished with a sprig of mint and perhaps a squeeze of fresh lemon.

Makes one large glass

Ingredients:

  • 1 large apple

  • 2 medium carrots

  • 3cm (1¼in) cube ginger, unpeeled

  • 1 medium beetroot

  • sprig of fresh mint, leaves only

  • slice of lemon, to serve (optional)

Juice together all the ingredients. When juicing herbs or leaves, sandwich them between chunks of apple, carrot or beetroot to help flush them through the juicer. Serve with a slice of lemon.
