Green Super Juice

If there is only one thing you could do to improve your general health, it would be to consume a pint of green juice daily or at least a few times a week.

This juice is packed with cancer and other disease fighting antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and other chemo preventative compounds.

Good bunch of kale
2 carrots, chopped
2 sticks of celery, chopped
Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 inch piece of fresh ginger (no need to peel)
½ an apple, cored and roughly chopped
Squeeze of lime juice
Pinch sea salt
250ml of water (or green tea)
Sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional)

Put all ingredients in a blender or a jug if you are using a hand blender and blend for about 30 seconds until a puree. Push the juice through a sieve with a spatula (remembering to squeeze the leftover pulp with your hands) or squeeze through muslin into a bowl and then transfer to a glass. Drink immediately or chill in the fridge before drinking. Make sure you consume within an hour or two to prevent loss of nutrients.

When available and affordable, use as many organic ingredients as possible.

You could use other variations including beets, cucumber, tomatoes and other greens (watercress, spinach, rocket, spring greens, collards etc.).

Have a teaspoon of EV olive oil or coconut oil before you drink the juice; this is crucial for the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K.
