Healthy Eating

Eat Good Feel Good

So I thought I would share with you what I ate yesterday and how I incorporate juices into my everyday day life.  Please don't think that it is time consuming to make all these juices, it's not.  It takes me around fifteen/ twenty minutes to make everything and clean the juicer and then that's the job done. 

In the morning I get up and have a glass of hot water with lemon along with a ginger shot.  The lemon helps to balance the PH in your skin and ginger is a great decongestant and anti inflammatory.  However yesterday I had a spinach shot.  Luckily spinach doesn't have much taste so it was quite pleasant and less of a kick than the ginger shot.  I then make my juices for the rest of the day and put them in the fridge or in flasks to take out with me.

I made four juices yesterday;

Spinach shot
1/2 apple, 1/4 lemon, 3 handfuls of spinach
Juice everything

Minty Sunshine
2 oranges, 3 carrots, 1 thin slice ginger root, 4 sprigs of mint.
Juice everything

1/4 pineapple, 2 carrots, 1 small beetroot, 1 thin slice ginger root, 4 sprigs of basil.
Juice everything

Turbo with a Kick
2 apples, 1/4 pineapple, 1 handful spinach leaves, 1/2 lime, 1/2 stalk celery, 3 cm cucumber, 1 cm ginger root, 1/4 avocado
Juice everything except the avocado.  Pour the juice into a blender along with the avocado and blend until smooth.


I also made the juice below for my breakfast this morning, i found the recipe on Pinterest, it was really delicious and turns out it is one of Jason Vale's.

Ice Cream Juice
1/2 pineapple, 1 apple, seeds from 1 vanilla pod, bio live yogurt, 1 tea spoon manuka (active) honey

I just want to make clear that i don't make four juices everyday.  Some days i will only have one but i try and have at least one everyday.
