Cold pressed vegetable juice is something that I am extremely happy that I adopted. Even Harry Potter loves his pumpkin juice. Why should I deny my body the benefits of the best vegetables.
So since this is dat two, I'm keeping the safety of the mint leaves.
Mint has the tendency to improve the taste of a lot of insipid ,bland,yucky stuff.
Mint and lemon juice...
So by now you know that cooking and processing destroy the micronutrients that are superbly beneficial to our bodies.
And of course, after mid morning.
Never early in the morning.
My glass on day two
250 GMs Ash Gourd -the variety used to make a sweet called petha
1 inch piece ginger
A handful of mint leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
1 glass cold water
Peel and dice the ash gourd, ginger and the mint leaves and place in blender jar with water.
Blend and liquidise.
Strain and press through a clean steel sieve. You can allow some fibre into the juice.
That after all is the magic extra.
Pour into a mason jar or large glass and add the lemon juice.
Stir and drink up. You may store,covered in the fridge for a few hours, but be sure to consume it soon.
And only by juices which are removed and squeezed from vegetable pulp can we get these benefits.
There has got to be a reason why the raw pressed cold vegetable juices is a big industry now.
So we'll start with the benefits of Mint.
Mint helps activate your digestive enzymes, allowing for better digestion. Aids weight loss. Improves memory, acts as a breath Freshener, it fights depression and fatigue and is good for skincare and pimples. It's benefits are tremendous.
There is so much research that is being carried out on the properties of mint against cancer and in improving brain activity.
Easy to grow, all it needs is a little sunshine and some love and care.
Try this in your vegetable juice.
We'll check out another herb/vegetable tomorrow.
Let's add the goodness of raw vegetables into our diet.
