I have found that the Red Russian variety seems to do best in the system, followed closely by the Tuscan Black.
The recipe I follow is as follows;
1 Bunch of Kale
3 large carrots
1 Lebanese cucumber
1 Apple (I use granny smith)
1 Lemon or 2 limes (skin and all)
15mm piece of Ginger
Green juices are power-packed with nutrition. Green vegetables are packed full of chlorophyll which oxygenate your body enabling it to release stored toxins by cleansing your digestive system, lungs and liver. Hemoglobin becomes elevated and this improves the blood circulation, giving you a boost of energy.
Magnesium which is essential for efficient calcium utilisation is at the centre of each chlorophyll molecule. When you include green juices in your daily diet, it helps your body absorb calcium far better. All green plants have Vitamins A and C, which are important co-factors for calcium absorption.
Chlorophyll foods also act as a form of ‘stored sunshine’, to regulate calcium and Vitamin D deficiency. So if you get no sunshine, then increase the greens in your diet.
Can’t wait for my strawberries to ripen so that I can add these to my green juice or, better still, eat them whole.
