Juicing Ideas - Prettily Pink, Ruby Red,

If you are thinking of getting a juicer read my Omega review here: Omega Juicer Review

Prettily Pink

1/4 honeydew melon
1 handful of fresh raspberries
1 handful of fresh redcurrants

A lovely light summery juice. Helps to aid digestion, stimulate metabolism, and is loaded with antioxidants.

Ruby Red

1 beetroot, peeled
1 fist sized piece of red cabbage (juicing is a good way of using the tough core)
1 handful of raspberries
1 handful of redcurrants

A deep complex flavour. Another juice that is loaded with antioxidants - the deep red colour advertises this. Good for the liver and heart. The cabbage makes it especially good for colon health.

Green Goddess

2 apples
2 pears
1 mango
3 large handfuls of spinach
2 handfuls of fresh wheat grass
5-6 basil leaves

This has a sweet, fresh, tangy flavour. Basil is rich in vitamins A, K, and C, as well as minerals magnesium, iron, potassium and calcium. Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and even purported to be anti-ageing. Wheat grass is loaded with nutrients and health benefits include more energy, less food cravings, better circulation and digestion, and general detoxification.  This juice should also help sweeten the breath and reduce body odour!  You can easily grow your own wheat grass using a sprouting tray or if you prefer in a seed tray with compost.
