Here is my lean green juice that eliminates toxins and allows your body to absorb more nutrients giving you more energy and focus.
2 Bunches Parsley,
2 Cups Spinach,
2 Tbsp Pumpkin Seeds,
1/4C Apple Cider Vinegar,
+ Water to preference.
Simple Recipe for Detoxing
The Lean Green is one of my “High Five” recipes because it only has 5 ingredients (aside from adding water at the end). I use green fruits and veggies to help detox the body. Green fruits and veggies help your body eliminate waste.
Rids the Body of the Three P’s
At this present time, we are a week after the new year. During the holidays I ate more packaged, processed, and preserved (the three P’s) foods than I normally do, which are known to get backed up in the digestive system. To help eliminate this waste and toxic food, I have called on our friends… Parsley and Spinach.
Parsley and Spinach are High in Vitamins
Parsley and Spinach are rich in the following:
Vitamin A (carotene) is good for eyesight in dim light and supports healthy, skin, hair. And bone
Vitamin C, aside from the immune boosting effect Vitamin C is most commonly known for, it also contributes to the structure of strong bones, teeth, muscle and connective tissues. It also helps to absorb iron. So if you have it at breakfast, it will help you absorb more iron throughout the day (important if your anemic).
Vitamin K is good for blood clotting and a healthy digestive system.
Nuts in a Juice?
Nuts and cold-pressed (naturally produced) oils help the body absorb the micronutrients from other foods like fruits and vegetables so that the nutrients can be put to good use inside the body.
Balancing Your pH
Adding a little bit of Apple Cider Vinegar can help to balance your body’s pH. Our bodies need to be more alkaline than acidic to prevent disease such as gout and kidney stones (for example). If you’re someone who eats a lot of dairy, eggs, and meat, it wouldn’t hurt to add in some extra apple cider vinegar to your salads and juices on occasion.
Putting it Together
My absolute favorite blender is the Nutribullet Rx. It’s the closest thing to a Vitamix for a fraction of the cost, is portable, and so easy to clean. If you’re looking for a new blender, it comes highly recommended from my husband and I.
The Effects of The Lean Green and Detoxing
Detoxing or getting rid of toxins in your body allows for your body to function better. Once the toxins are eliminated, your body is able to circulate oxygen better and absorb more nutrients giving you more energy and focus, naturally making you feel better and improve your mood.
Cheers to your health, friend!
