Posted in Functional Foods

why crave sugar Who doesn’t love starting the day with a green juice? 

Whether you are looking to fit more veggies into your day or are trying to eat a cleaner for a bit a green juice can be the perfect compliment to a healthy diet.

For many of us the issue is time.

Even with fancy juicers and planned pre-chopping, some mornings are just too rushed. Frankly the process can be really tiresome after a while.

Here is a go to alternative. It provides loads of pure Vitamin C, Magnesium, Calcium, Fiber (missing in pure juices and needed to keep you feeling satiated) full spectrum Vitamin B, and anti-inflammatory hormone balancing goodness.

Plus the acidity from the lemon helps to break up the oxalic acid in the spinach, making the nutrients more bioavailable. The coconut water makes you feel refreshed, curbs sugar cravings, helps you stay hydrated and provides a touch of natural sugar to give you energy for your day. It will wake you up, boost your immune system, and get your digestive system “moving” in a way that is more gentle than coffee. All you need is 2 minutes and a blender (A Vitamix is great but not necessary).

  • 1 lemon chopped into quarters (seeds removed). Don’t forget the peel! It has loads of calcium, potassium, fiber and bio-flavanoids ( anti-oxidants)
  • 1-1.5 cups spinach (use bagged organic spinach – what could be easier?)
  • A “hunk” of ginger (to desired spiciness)
  • 3/4-1 cup of coconut water (to desired consistency)
  • A few springs of fresh mint

That’s it! Blend till smooth. Ginger is such an amazing spice and can be used in so many ways. Here is some more info on the benefits of ginger.
