The Morning Kicker
Cheers to a Healthy Day!
Glen and I have been having this variation for breakfast since 2008. It gets you going in more ways than one!
Fresh juices filled with chlorophyll from green-leafy foods (celery, parsley, spinach, kale etc) and fruits (apples, pears etc) are a wonderful way to begin and maintain a beautiful body for a lifetime. The habit of drinking fresh vegetable juices daily is probably the fastest way to transform your body. I know that it helped clear up my bronchitis and phlegm issues and also gave me so much more energy!
Your FRESH ingredients!
2 apples, chopped in quarters
1 cucumber, chop in half
handful of celery
handful of Swiss chard, collard greens or kale or all of them
Parsley (if you have it on hand)
1/2 “ piece of peeled ginger
1 lemon, peeled
Put it through your juicer (I use the Jack LaLanne for this) and drink up! You won’t believe how refreshed and energetic you feel. Use organic and local produce when possible. Use more apples if you need to sweeten it up.
TIP: Put the leafy greens in followed by some apple, then celery, then cucumbers and repeat until all leafy greens are gone (this helps to not clog it up and I’m all about speed in the morning!). Put the ginger in and finish off with the lemon.
Ginger: used to treat indigestion, gas, stomach cramps, nausea, motion sickness, inflammation, circulation, colds, flus and coughs.
Parsley: Its high Vitamin C content makes parsley an excellent immune builder. It improves kidney activity and helps eliminate waste from the blood. Parsley has been used to relieve gas, indigestion, bladder issues and fluid retention.
Juicing: Quickens the digestive process and delivers nutrients more quickly to your bloodstream.
