It's Juice Week!

Ok, so this week is all about experimenting with new flavours and loving all things juiced!  Every day there will be a new Juice coming from the Grow Eat Run kitchen.  Juicing is a great way to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, boost your nutrition and keep hydrated.  Some of the juices you will know well, but I will put my tastebuds on the line in experimenting with some fun and different flavours! 
 Sunday: Carrot, Celery and Ginger
  • 2 Carrots (or 3 little carrots)
  • 4 sticks of Celery
  • 2cm piece of ginger
Tip of the day: Add some sliced lemon to your water for the day in a water bottle.  Not only will it change up the flavour a little, it will boost your Vitamin C and can help cleanse toxins from the body.

Monday: Beetroot, Orange, Celery and Mint

  • 2 Beetroot - raw
  • 3 sticks of Celery
  • 1 Orange
  • 6 Mint Leaves
Tip of the day: Drink at least a cup of water, maybe even two as you enjoy your morning coffee or cup of tea. Keeping yourself hydrated on the morning is super important and means you are playing catch up all day trying to drink enough. 

Tuesday: Watermelon, Lime, and Mint
  • 4 pieces of Watermelon
  • 1/2 a Lime
  • 6 Mint Leaves
Tip of the day: A juice with Watermelon and Lime is a great source of potassium and vitamins A and C.  It will also keep you cool and refreshed in the summer months by the pool. 

Wedensday: Spinach, Cucumber and Green Apple
  • 8 Spinach leaves
  • 2 small Cucumbers (or 1 large one)
  • 1 Green Apple
Tip of the day: Why is green so good for you? Green leafy vegetables cleanse the body naturally gently.  Green vegetables should be part of your daily diet - and why not, there are no many options to choose from - here's just a way to juice them!
