The green juice revolution. Yes, it is radical, and it has the power to change the world, this increasingly popular drink that has the same colour as the heart chakra!
The health benefits of the green juice are many, for me the green juice changed my life from disease to health when I needed it the most. I can’t thank this little drink enough. But even if you are in a state of reasonably good health, there is no reason not to optimalise right? You will most likely within a relatively short period of time notice that you feel even more energetic then before and with a clear, sharp mind, so nothing to loose. It is so simple to make and if you do not have a juice machine in the house, I urge you to treat yourself, your body will thank you! I will list some of the health benefits you will receive from this little glass of juice. Only one big glass of this powerful green juice will provide for your body more nutrients than some people get on a SAD (Standard American Diet) in a week.
Here are 5 reasons to start right now!
- Intense energy boost, great as a pick me up
- Detoxes and restores
- High in minerals and vitamins, great as a vitamin kick
- Mental clarity
- Weight loss
How to make Green Juice
If you do not have a juice machine you can use you blender, little or big, you might only have to chop the ingredients up a bit first. Then use a big pot so that it won’t mess up your kitchen when you blend. Add water if needed. And when you have a good smoothie mix ready, bring out the sieve. (The pulp is great for the plants in your garden). Make sure you buy organic as far as you can!
Here is what you need
- 4 apples
- 1 cucumber
- 4 stalks of celery
- 1 lemon, peeled
- 1 handful of greens, like kale, spinach, dandelion or similar
Enjoy your green juice revolution! This is particularly good for the heart chakra, and will give support and healing to lungs and heart. Keep drinking every day as an alternative to vitamin pills! It will see you through the winter, feeling strong and healthy.
