Get Your Juice On!
Easy Quick Healthy Tip 8 – Carrott and Apple Juice
Seriously the most delicious and easiest juice. I think if you are thinking about starting juicing this is the place to start. Even my kids will drink this juice and that is saying something (they generally treat vegetables as one would posion).
I tend to use the same amount of carrots and apples, you can alter how much of each goes in to suit your taste but basically 2 apples, two or three carrots, cut then into large churnks, put through the juicer and hey-presto and little cup of nutrients right there!
Carrots (like oats), drag toxins out the bowel as they go through so can really help in giving you a healthier, cleaner bowel…. particularly important for us Bowel Cancer people, but for general health is still as must.
You do need a juicer for this but if you are thinking about a seriously healthy diet you are probably considering getting one anyway?! Check out websites for 2nd hand ones if they seem a bit expensive to you.
Whilst we are all trying to get healthy and detox in January, I thought I would give you an easy quick health tip everyday, to help you on your way….
Easy Quick Healthy Tip 1: Add a handful of rolled oats to a smoothie.
As rolled oats pass through the bowel they drag all toxins out with then, helping you keep a nice clean healthy bowel. On top of all the lovely vitamins and minerals you are already getting from your smoothy.
This smoothie is a punt of blueberries, two bananas, handful of organic rolled oats, 200ml of milk and about 20 ice cubes, all blended together, made 4 full glasses, one for each member of the family! Delicious!
If my son will drink this then that truly is an indication that it must be yummy! 🙂
What you will need…
– A cup of Strawberries
– Half a cup of Blueberries
– 50g of Goji Berries
– 1x Banana
– A tsp of Linwoods milled Flax, Sunflower, Pumpkin & Sesame seeds with Goji Berries.
– 2x Tbsp of rolled Oats
– A cup of your choice of Milk or Water
Literally chuck it all in the blender & hey presto a delicious smoothie, full of super-foods, antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins & essential fatty acids…. all that & it tastes delicious!
In this lovely warm weather I have also been adding 5 or 6 ice cubes to give it a seriously refreshing taste.
I honestly think Juices & Smoothies are the easiest way to get some seriously good stuff into your diet in the most delicious way. I have not stopped since seeing my nutritionist (as well as eating a much healthier diet) & I feel so much better, but this smoothie really is becoming a firm family favourite.
Hope you like it.
Wishing you health & happiness x
