I constantly struggle with having enough energy to get everything done. Instead of loading myself up with coffee all day, I am taking a healthier approach and started giving my body what it really needs – natural vitamins and nutrients.
Juicing is a great way to add essential nutrients to the body and in return, I get a much-needed boost of energy. My kids have lovingly dubbed this juice the “Green Drop Drink” after one of their favorite movies. If you don’t have any kale or spinach, you can add the remaining ingredients and make a delicious yellow version of this beverage.
Go for the organic fruits and vegetables when juicing as it helps your body detoxify more efficiently. As well, this is a great juice to help detox from the holidays or from heavy metals and environmental pollutants, and also gives you an added energy boost thanks to the ginger. Here are some other ways your health benefits from this juice:
- Weight loss
- Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol
- Colon cancer prevention
- Increased blood circulation
- Cancer prevention
- Bone protection
- Improved complexion
This juice is very versatile, so feel free to adjust the number of vegetables and fruits to your liking. I make a large pitcher of this juice to enjoy throughout the day and also to give to my kids.
