In my opinion, juicing is the best way to start your day. Before breakfast, pull out some produce and run it through the juicer (or blend and strain). It prepares your stomach for food in the morning and introduces fresh produce in the beginning of your day.
The ingredients in this juice are hand-picked for their flavor, how they mix well together, and their benefits. Celery and cucumbers start you off with a solid base, then we add green apples for their tartness, then limes, mint, and ginger for that extra flavor boost. All of these ingredients pull together to make the perfect morning juice!
The nutritional power that this juice provides is not only beneficial in the morning, but is great to have on-hand throughout the day. Your stomach easily absorbs these nutrients and drinking it during the day as well helps for you not to overeat. Don’t forget to keep it chilled!
What do I need to make this simple juice?
Limes are rich in antioxidants, reducing inflammation and helping to prevent kidney stones.
Cucumbers are filled with vitamins K and A, and are actually about 95% water. They’re hydrating and give your body fiber.
Green apples contain pectin, a prebiotic that supports digestive function,
Celery stalks are loaded with vitamin C, which boosts antioxidant levels and helps to lower blood pressure.
Mint supports digestion and can help to reduce stress.
Ginger can help to reduce soreness in muscles after exercise and helps to manage blood sugar levels.
