I am a huge fan of juicing since buying my juicer in 2014. I super-juiced myself by going on a 14 day juice fast last year and I felt incredible. It was a tough fortnight but there were some great benefits to doing it, like I lost two stone, my blood pressure dropped considerably (my doctor nearly fell off her chair and even thought her blood pressure monitor was faulty) and I discovered the power of a plant based diet and the health benefits of certain juices. My favorite are apple and ginger shots. They are so quick and easy and simple to freeze in ice cube trays or bags.
Start your day with an apple and ginger shot and you will notice your energy levels increase almost immediately (better than an espresso). They are also said to be fabulous for your immune system, fighting off those colds, morning sickness, hayfever (ginger is a natural antihistamine), heartburn and helps to aid digestion.
What You Need: (fills two ice cube bags - so double or triple ingredients for a good supply)
- 8 x Apples
- 2" Fresh Ginger
- Ice cube trays or bags
Method - Simple, just juice up your ingredients, pour into your ice cube trays/bags and freeze. Pop a few out into a glass every morning, let defrost and knock back.
