Do You Juice?

One of the very best habits my boyfriend and I have ever adopted is our “morning ritual.” Within 10 minutes of waking up, I make a vegetable juice in our blender, we drink it, wait 15 minutes, and then have our regular breakfast. It’s the best way to guarantee plenty of vegetable servings for your day, and that much fiber first thing in the morning does wonders for your digestive system, facilitates fat loss, and helps muscle growth and recovery. Almost instantly, we feel much more alive, awake, and alert since all those healthy carbohydrates have been quickly absorbed into the cells that were depleted of nutrients throughout the night.

It’s best to use the most colorful assortment of vegetables as possible for your juice, but also to change up your vegetable choices week to week, so try to pace yourself.

This is an example of what I do:

I always start with either kale, spinach, or collard greens. Then I like to add some greens like asparagus, cucumber, and celery. For a variety of colors, I use one orange/yellow and one red pepper (small ones), and a few mini carrots. Usually I also like to add a banana to add a little flavor and potassium.

Other great options to try are beets, parsley, cilantro, and other fruits (in minimum amounts to control sugar intake) like apples, watermelon, and berries.

After all the vegetables and fruit have been cut up and put into the blender, I add about 3/4 cup of pomegranate-blueberry 1-to-1 vegetable and fruit juice. This is great because of all the antioxidants found in those fruits, and the taste makes it easier to drink the vegetable juice, especially if you’ve never juiced before. You can also use coconut water if you want, or other 100% fruit juices. Then I top it off with cold water, so that there’s almost equal liquid and veggies.

Blend it up, and enjoy the benefits!
