I've never been much for breakfast, so I often skip what we in Sweden call "the most important meal of the day." I'm quite inconsistent, so some days it becomes porridge for breakfast, but other days just a coffee and fruit - but one thing is always the same: our morning juice! It's filled with good stuff, and tastes absolutely fabulous. I have to admit that the amount of ginger only increases, so anyone who does not like ginger, you might not take as much as we do...
What it contains in addition to ginger? When I make a pot that lasts 4-5 days for both of us, I use:
4 green apples
4 celery stalks
(quite a lot of) ginger
I run everything in my vegetable centrifuge, and it works great for me.
The juice is both tasty and nutritious, and really gives a kick start to the day. I recently bought the book " Superfoods - healing food from the heart of nature " by John Opsahl , and found the following fun information about some of the ingredients :
Orange (vitamin C) : " ... Increases the body's iron absorption .. necessary for the formation of collagen .... important for fat metabolism and the immune system .. "
Ginger : " .. anti-inflammatory and analgesic ... stimulates digestion .. increases blood circulation .. "
Celery is good for the liver and is detoxifying, carrots adds vitamin A , green apple adds potassium, and flavonoids (antioxidants) .
If you want to give yourself a real health treat you can also mix in some wheat grass and why not a few grains of bee pollen ? If you have your own recipe for the greatest morning juice – I would be happy to try it out!
All the best!
