I thought I would start the New Year with a juice cleanse. My first juice of 2015 is this parsley and kale vegetable juice containing:
1 bag of organic kale
1 large pot of parsley
3 celery sticks
1 apple, a chunk of ginger and half an organic lemon
Usually my first juice on one of my juice cleanses contains the vegetables I am not that fond of like kale and parsley.
In the afternoon I have my favorite beetroot (beets) and carrot
You could if you wanted to make this juice then add it into a blender with avocado but I prefer the juice to a smoothie.
I chop everything up first before adding it to my juicer
Once it is all juiced I strain out the juice into a jug. As it didn’t make one liter I added water to top it up.
Then I pour out two drinks and enjoy one now and put one in the fridge for later.
Really enjoyed this parsley and kale vegetable juice today. I will drink two for the morning and make sure I drink at least 1 liter of water in the morning too.
In the afternoon I will drink a carrot/beetroot juice and then in the evening around 6pm I will eat something clean like wild salmon and vegetables.
That will be one juice cleanse day complete. I do this for three days and then see how it helps weight loss wise. Eventually I will ditch the evening meal and just use the vegetable juicing all day for three days. Not there yet though!
There are more vegetable juicing recipes available here.
