Green juices are power-packed with nutrition and a great way to kick start your day, here are my handy tips to get you motivated! Green vegetables have the ability to use the sun and soil to grow into food that all creatures can consume. During this process greens produce chlorophyll, which is important as it helps to oxygenate your body, thus enabling us to release stored toxins. During sleep your body has been busy repairing things and processing toxin’s, so when you wake your engine (body) is clean and ready for the day ahead making your morning fuel important. If your morning fuel is nutritious, it will effect your whole day and mood. Regular green morning fuel will brighten your skin, calm your belly and kick-start your metabolism. I like to keep things simple and eat seasonally, as it’ better for our health and what nature intended. Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean you can’t start/keep juicing, the choices in fruit and veg may seem limited, but you just have to get more creative and use what you have at your disposal. Juicing is just part of my life now and I look forward to a nutritious juice every morning! Here is my easy peasy Morning Glory juice recipe to help you on your way to health and vitality.

It’s important to juice with organic fruit and vegetables (even better if you can grow your own, be part of a shared allotment or can get food from your local farmers markets). In today’s society there is an enormous pressure of high population density necessitating the industrial production of foodstuffs and the production of foods containing unnatural substances. Nutritional value is getting lost and even added artificially to foods (why does everything seen to have ‘added iron’ or ‘added vitamin C’?), it’s important to understand labels and know where your food comes from than ever before. Once you start eating more naturally, you eat with the seasons, discover new foods and can taste the difference. I think it is really important to move away from getting a quick bite to eat to looking at what we are eating and when. Juicing seasonally is great as the foods that are around are often the cheapest and grown at that time of year, because nature knows that when you need those nutrients to either keep you warm or project you from the sun.
