Seasonal: Green Carrot Ginger Juice | Reboot With Joe
2″ (5 cm) of ginger root (you may add more ginger if you like)
1 medium cucumber
3 stalks kale (Tuscan cabbage)
This recipe comes to you via the Reboot With Joe website. I love visiting his website and getting new juicing recipes. Also featured on Reboot With Joe, are people with inspirational stories. It just makes me want to juice every day and twice on Sundays.
Drinking cucumber juice helps you reach your recommended daily intake of vitamin K (Kale also has plenty of vitamin K). This vitamin helps you build strong bone tissue and nourishes your kidneys. It also plays an important role in blood clotting — it activates proteins that trigger blood coagulation, so that you can stop bleeding after suffering tissue damage. Consuming cucumber juice helps to fight the effects of vitamin K deficiency, which can include nosebleeds, bruising and bleeding gums.
Another great source of recipes is a book I have called, The Juicing Bible. It has a lot of fantastic recipes and so much good information about juicing and healthy food. It’s an awesome book and if you’re juicing regularly, it’s a must read.
