Why juice should be part of your morning ritual
If you’re thinking that veggies for breakfast may not be your thing, juicing them will definitely change your mind. You may be surprised to find out that the bitter taste in some vegetables can easily be masked by the fresh sweetness of fruits or herbs. Some of the best choices for instant energy include the following:
- Kale – The high amounts of manganese and iron found in kale help your brain to function at its best, so you can focus on your daily tasks at work, while a powerful combination of vitamins and minerals support muscles and cardiovascular system.
- Beetroot – Naturally occurring nitrates increases oxygen flow, which supports the brain and muscular system. In addition to increasing energy, the concentrated nutrients in beets help cleanse the body and fight inflammation.
- Tomato – Perfect right after your morning workout, tomatoes normalise blood levels and promote proper liver function and the toxin elimination processes throughout the body.
- Carrot – The concentrated, natural sugars in carrots offer a powerful energy boost, while promoting proper metabolism and detoxification. Plus, they’re packed with a variety of nutrients that help nearly every part of your body.
Add one of the ingredients above to your favourite juicing recipe each day – a base of apples, parsley and ginger create a tasty beverage that will get you going. After just a few mornings you’ll agree that these delicious juices will definitely set you up to be your best. You’ll enjoy sustained energy and be bursting with vitality all day. So drink up!
