After living life on the road (San Diego, Ca to Austin, Tx) for about a week I definitely over indulged on sweets and deep friend foods, I mean... how could I of NOT?! Although I enjoyed my glutinous bliss I am now back home and getting back to the gym everyday. Today, being the first day back on the grind I decided to look up some juices to help clear all the toxins and stumbled on this one on youngandraw.com
Healthy Tips for this Juice
Kale: A leafy green that is loaded with iron, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, and antioxidants. It’s also helps to detoxify the liver because it’s high in sulfur.
Apples: These help prevent gallstones, support the liver, and help boost the immune system.
Lemon: Loaded with Vitamin C, lemons support a healthy immune system and help the liver to detoxify.
Cucumber: Being a great source of electrolytes, eating these will help the body become re-hydrated and provide you with a source of B Vitamins. Note: drinking alcohol reduces the supply of B vitamins to the body.
Trust me, this is the green drink you’ll want to drink, not only after a night out, but at any time when you want to feel hydrated, full of energy and need a total body lift!
Green Detox Juice
This recipe makes approximately two 8 ounce servings.
- 5 stalks of Kale or Spinach
- 3 Apples
- 1 Lemon
- 1 Cucumber
Instructions: Wash all the ingredients and run them through the juicer. (If you’re using a slow-juicer, run a bit of water through the juicer last, in order to catch all of the last bits of flavor.) As with any juice, feel free to substitute any ingredients you don’t like for those that you do!
Happy Detoxing Guys!
