Beet Green Juice

Good morning, gorgeous!

What better way to start you day than with a glass full of fresh fruit and vegetables.  This is what I woke up with this morning and it was so delicious.  This combination of power-house foods and flavours is sure to wake you up and give you the kick-start you need to go play in the park, or swim in the ocean or kite surf.  Hey, it's summer - and having fun requires lots of health energy!

The stars of this mornings juice are kale and a beetroot.

Beetroots have a cleansing effect on the liver and can be used to treat liver maladies, kidney stones, and disorders of the gallbladder, stomach and intestines.  Beets also aid digestion and the lymphatic system.

Kale packs more nutritional punch per calorie than almost any other food on the planet.  It is loaded with vitamin K, an essential vitamin for preventing bone fractures, postmenopausal bone loss, calcification of your arteries and has even been shown to protect against liver and prostate cancer.  It is also a very good source of vitamin A, C, B6, manganese, dietary finer, calcium, copper and potassium.  This combination of vitamins and minerals makes kale a health superstar, for real.

You'll need a juicer to make this one.

1 Apple - Cored, cut in half
1 Pear - Cored, cut in half
1 Beetroot - Ends off, cut in half
1 Bunch Kale, ends off
1 Cucumber, ends off, cut in half

Put through your juicer and enjoy with ice!

Remember to by organic where possible.
