Morning blood cleanser juice


A great way to start your day is drinking a big glass of veggie juice like this one. Drinking freshly squeezed juices first thing in the morning provide your body with tons vitamins. Doing this before eating breakfast alkalize the blood, giving you an instant energy. By juicing, the pulp of the veggies and fruits is removed and therefore can be fully absorbed in a very short amount of time (no extra time needed for digestion). 
Hint: Wait at least 15-30 minutes before having any solid food for full benefits.

What will you need: 
For one person:

- 3 stalks of cellery
- 2 small beetroots
- 1 cup of spinach
- some ginger (I used around 1cm piece)
- a bunch of mint leaves

Juice all ingredients in a juicer. If you are new to juicing, try first a small amount of ginger. Later, you can increase the amount. I normally take a 1cm to 2cm piece. Depends on how spicy I feel in the morning ;)

You can run the pulp through your juicer once again. You will get quite a bit more of the juice and won't feel like you are wasting so much veggies...

Please make sure to buy beautiful organic veggies, so that you don't juice the chemicals into your morning vitamin bomb. 
If you don't have a budget to buy always all organic, here is a very useful table to show which fruits and veggies contain the most of the pesticide and which can be bought non-organic safely.
