energetic green juice

Jun 05, 2014

With the arrival of heat we tend to want light and fresh foods, such as salads, cold soups, and smoothies. It is an instinctive behavior that allows us to face the summer season in better conditions. I remembered it this morning when getting ready for breakfast, I didn't feel like the oatmeal latte and toast every day. In search of alternatives I thought of adding an ice cube to the cup, but like an automaton I opened the vegetable drawer and spotted some spinach, half a cucumber, and some fruit. And I asked myself "What was the recipe for that energetic green juice? ". It is called green juice - or shake, or smoothie - for its high content of clorofila. By consuming it we benefit digestion, the elimination of toxins, and the function of tissues and organs. Green leaves have countless properties applicable to both health care and aesthetic appearance. They supply fiber, vital to eliminate waste, and are a source of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. They also protect against molecular degeneration and provide folic acid. In summary and clearly, when you drink a glass of energetic green juice, you are helping your body to:
  • Increase energy level.
  • Improve the appearance of the skin.
  • Eliminate liquids.
  • Improve digestion
  • Regulate intestinal transit since it produces a mild laxative effect.
  • Improve sleep quality.
  • Lose weight.
  • Strengthen the immune system.
  • Strengthen the elimination of addictions.
Here the recipe I chose today
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Apple
  • Lemon juice
  • Ginger
  • Water
We prepare the base of the juice with the apple, the cucumber, the lemon juice, and the ginger. We beat it, add water and the spinach leaves, and we already have the energetic green juice. When we blend vegetables, we break down the cell walls, making their vegetables more bioavailable. benefits. It is advisable to vary the green leafy vegetables that we use to obtain a balance of nutrients and not receive high proportions of any specific alkaloid. We can use lettuce, chard, mint, or parsley. And we could replace the apple with pineapple or kiwi. It is best to drink it in the morning on an empty stomach and not eat anything for the next twenty minutes to promote its absorption. In addition, they say that this shake lasts a couple of days in the fridge without losing properties, although I have not been able to verify it, I always finish it throughout the day!
