This recipe was given to me by a good friend of mine who’s just started on the healthy diet lifestyle. She found this on a website while doing more research into food. I tried it out and thought it was too yummy to keep it to myself! Here’s what you get out of it: Potassium, fibre, vitamins C, B, K, beta-carotene, magnesium, calcium, folic acid and iron – Most of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to kick-start your day!
2 handful spinach
2 tbsp plain or greek yoghurt
1 celery stick
30ml water (add more water to your consistency)
Put all ingredients in a blender or smoothie maker and blend until smooth. ENJOY!!!
1kg bag of carrots
½ lemon with rind left on
4 ice cubes
Juice the lot and enjoy!
Apples are packed full of Vitamins A, B1, B2, and B6. The pectin in apples forms a gel in the intestine which eliminates toxins.
Carrots are rich in Vitamins A, C and K, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium and iron. They help in reducing cholesterol, aid in the prevention of heart attack, promote healthy eyes, skin, and help in cleansing the liver. Most of the benefits of carrots are attributed to their high fibre and beta-carotene content.
Fennel contains Vitamins B and C, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc. They help in reducing intestinal gas and bloating, and have a calming effect on digestion.
Lemon contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium and magnesium. It cleanses the system, eliminates toxins and neutralizes harmful bacteria.
