The Go-To Green Juice

April 05, 2015

If you are anything like me, you have just spent the Easter long weekend eating a heap of chocolate. Lindt chocolate bunnies get me every single year. Luckily, to cure you of all your chocolate binges, I’ve decided to share my go-to green juice – the green lemonade. Yes, I know – juice detoxes are a fad but that doesn’t mean you can incorporate it into your life and plus, they are a really good way of clearing out your fridge. Also, I tend to find that juicing makes it so much easier to consume your veggies because I don’t think I could ever eat this amount in just one sitting.

Here are a few key tips for juicing. Make sure that everything is washed extremely well – especially any root vegetables. If you also tend to run low on time, prep all your vegetables the night before so it will cut out ten minutes of extra prep in the morning. Also, use a plastic bag to line the pulp bin to minimize any clean up. For this particular recipe, just wash the veggies and make sure to peel the lemon because we don’t want any bitterness in the juice. If you find one lemon is too much for you, you can use just half or substitute with an orange for something sweeter. Everything else is self explanatory and relatively fun, just put everything through the juicer. I normally have this juice with breakfast or in conjunction with my post workout meal because my body will be able to metabolise any sugars faster after a workout. What’s your favourite juicing recipe? I’m sure that there are a heap out there.
