As a personal trainer, who recently qualified as a Natural Juice Therapist, healthy living and juicing are my passions. I have been drinking fresh, raw, organic fruit and vegetable juice for about eight years now, and can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever incorporated into my diet. My husband drinks it, my kids drink it, even my dog has been known to have a slurp of wheatgrass juice when she's a bit under the weather! Juicing is the fastest way to get all the great nutrients in our fresh fruit and veggies into your system - the real "fast food!"
I hope this blog and its recipes will inspire you to get juicing - and get moving too!!!
For starters, here is a juice recipe to revive you on a day when you wake up feeling just a bit below par. Whether it's because you've had a hectic weekend, your "to do" list is getting longer or you have exams coming up. If you're feeling tense, anxious and irritable, as well as being run down, then this is the cure. Try drinking one glass a day for a week and before you know it, you'll be feeling much perkier.
You might not often think of lettuce when it comes to juice. But lettuce contains substances known as lactones, and was used by the ancient Assyrians as a mild sedative. This helps to make the Life Saver juice an ideal calming and restorative juice, good for children recovering from illness.
2 oranges (peeled but leaving the pith behind)
1 lemon, with peel
1 head romaine lettuce
Put everything through the juicer, and enjoy!
