Fresh pressed, green juices are a nutritious, mineral rich, vitamin packed way to start your day!
There's nothing more refreshing and alkalising for the body than a fresh, pressed green juice!
For these recipes I recommend using a masticating juicer machine. A masticating juicer, efficiently crushes and presses the fruits and vegetables using a single-auger. It operates at a slower speed and will not heat up and oxidize as much as other types. When properly cleaned and cared for, a good quality juicer is an excellent investment for a lifetime of good health.
Below are two of my "go to" juices when I'm feeling sluggish, and need a boost! They are both great for detoxifying the body of heavy metals, cleansing the blood, clearing lymphatic stagnation and flushing the kidneys. Aside from being delicious and refreshing, they help balance blood sugar levels for long lasting energy, all day long.
*Note: Each recipe makes a serving of roughly one Cup (236ml)
*Amount varies due to fruit and veg size factors. I invite you to get creative and add or more of less of what you like!
