I’ve had fresh juices all my life, thanks to my beloved mum who introduced me to fresh vegies and fruit juice as a child. I like to stick to only drinking fresh juice rather than store bought juices because there’s no added sugars, preservatives or colours. There are far more nutritional benefits from drinking freshly made to store bought juice, even though it’s a little more effort than pouring out of a carton, I promise you that your body will thank you for the nutrition that it will receive and it’s a good way to detoxify the system also.
Packed in this juice are the power of vegetables and fruit, all enriched with lifesaving antioxidants. Apples contain nutrients like Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E and K, Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, Calcium, Sodium and Manganese. Carrots contain a wide variety of vitamins such as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E and K, Folate, Niacin and Pantothenic Acid. There are minerals like Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium and Selenium packed in it. One of the most important components found in carrots is beta-carotene. You can get the best of these nutrients by juicing the carrots. The heart friendly Beetroots are enriched with nutrients like Vitamins A, C, B-complex, potassium, iron, magnesium and copper. They contain anti-aging agents as well.
If you don’t have a juicer at home, it’s a fantastic health investment which reaps rewards immediately.
Home juicing also gives me the option of changing what fruits I juice, lately I’ve been having a lot of juices with a whole lemon to help cleanse my system. At first I thought it would be too sour but by adding at least one apple its not sour at all and absolutely delicious.
It’s best to have the juice at least 30 minutes before breakfast on an empty stomach to optimise the nutritional benefits.
I’ll add more of my favourite juicing combinations soon, but I guarantee you’ll love this juice recipe and it will feel super refreshing!
A wonderful start to the day!
