Juice of the Day: Celery for Energy Juice

We could all use a little lift of energy, especially first thing in the morning! If you are a fan of celery, you are going to love this juice. It’s loaded with ingredients full of energy and immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and biotin. Celery contains compounds that may protect us from inflammation and high blood pressure. It has also been shown that eating celery can help reduce fluid retention. Tomatoes are an excellent source of lycopene, which helps prevent prostate cancer.

Celery for Energy Juice

  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Dash of cayenne pepper

Add all ingredients, except cayenne pepper, to your juicer machine and juice until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and stir in the pepper. Serve and enjoy!

Juice of the Day: Easy Apple Beet Juice

If you love beets, you will really enjoy this juice! It requires only three ingredients and it is delicious and nutritious. Did you know that beets are a great food for your heart? The heart-healthy nutrients found in beets include folate, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin C. Red beets contain a phytonutrient called betacyanin, which provides extra nutrition not found in yellow or rainbow-colored beets. Apples are a great source of antioxidants to keep your immune system strong and celery is high in potassium and calcium which makes it a good food for promoting healthy bones. Give this juice a try today!

Juice of the Day: Lettuce Apple Orange Juice

When I told my friend about this juice recipe, the first thing they said to me was, “I thought that lettuce didn’t have any nutritional value?” If you stick with using dark leafy green lettuce, like romaine lettuce, you are actually giving yourself a nice boost of nutrients! Romaine lettuce is  a good source of Vitamin A, B1, C, K, Potassium, and Folate. The apples in this juice are full of antioxidants to help keep your immune system strong. I like to add an orange to this recipe for a bigger boost of vitamin C. Try this juice today and let me know what you think!

Lettuce Apple Orange Juice

  • 1 C dark green organic lettuce
  • 2 apples (I use red delicious)
  • 1 orange (peeled)
  • A splash of fresh lemon juice

Add the lettuce, apples, and orange to your juicing machine and process. Pour into a tall glass and squeeze in the lemon juice. Stir and serve!
