Juice, Juice, Juice!

Juices Smoothies

In case you didn’t know, I LOVE juicing!  It helps me keep my weight down, my skin looking great and my digestion system working brilliantly.  I love it so much I set up a monthly community juice day on the first Tuesday of the month (next one in May :).  My juice day helps me reset my eating habits once a month (I have less-than-great habits that creep in too 🙂 and gives my body a day of intensely good nutrition and digestive rest. For days after I’m feeling the benefits.  My energy levels are up, my mood is balanced and positive and I look great. Hurray for juice!!!

Before I got into juicing properly I used to worry about how much time it would take, and about having to clean the juicer.  I decided to shift my thinking around it so that I saw the whole process as taking time out to really nurture myself.  Juicing has become  a meditative time of reflection for me.  It helps me to remember that by taking the time to do it I’m nourishing myself not only physically but emotionally and spiritually too.

Today’s video is one that I did for my Ready Steady Juice programme earlier this year and it’s all about what other delicious goodies you can add to your juice.

I’d love to hear what your favourite juice-additions are too, so post your comments below 🙂

p.s. next week’s recipe video is one of my absolute favourites – Veggie Noodles 🙂

    Avocados are my life saver on juice days – I find I tend to feel the cold more when I have a juice day, and avocados help to counteract the chill. Plus, they are another delicious green (albeit not leafy) food!
