a delicious fresh green juice recipe to start your day

green-207x300Start the new year by being good to your health with a daily green juice to keep you alkalised. Green juice can lower your bodies pH levels and is the perfect antidote to all the acid forming foods that we can consume over the festive season.

When I started drinking green juice, I found some of it very hard to get down however, even the die-hard green juice skeptics have never complained about The Delicious Green.

This recipe serves one. Once you are used to it, try reducing the quantity of apples and raising the volume of celery and cucumber. Personally I like just one apple in my green juice, but I think that it does require some palate training to get to that point.

Only use the skin of the lemon if it is organic and unwaxed. If you are unsure on the provenance of your fruit and vegetables you can peel them to ensure they are pesticide free. If you cannot peel them wash them in a dilution of water and apple cider vinegar.
