The humidity has been off the charts lately and after my morning run as I opened the refrigerator to gather the ingredients I would need for my morning smoothie, I realized we were out of almond butter! Still craving liquid refreshment, I decided a juice was the best thing to satisfy my craving. Instead of hauling out my juicer due to lack of time, I swung by Health King on my way to work for a delicious juice (knowing I would sacrifice organic fruits and veggies in the interest of time).
The selections can be overwhelming once inside, so before going, I consulted some of the many juice options from my “bible”, The 3 Day Cleanse. I knew I wanted a juice with an element of green added to it so I opted for spinach, blueberry, apple and lemon. I added some ice cubes to make it cold and I had a satisfying breakfast.
Juicing is an optimal way to cleanse, energize and consume a concentrated dose of vitamins and minerals. In fact, I recommend juicing to all of my clients as part of a healthy, well-rounded diet.
Here are a few of my favorite juices:
Pineapple and mint
Spinach, kale, green apple, cucumber, parsley and lemon
Strawberry apple, beet
Grape, cucumber, pear
What are your favorite juice combinations?
Next time you need a caffeine fix, have a green juice instead. I loved my morning juice so much today, I just might have another one for lunch!
