This is the juice I make again and again and again. Most mornings, in fact. I grab the ingredients on autopilot out of the fridge, stick them through Oscar The Juicer, pour it into a jar and head off to work.

Good stuff in this juice:
Apples hit you up with potassium, phosphorus, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron and zinc (and makes all the green stuff in the juice more palatable).
Celery is alkalizing and provides vitamins A and K. It also contains a heap of sodium which is what makes it taste kind of salty. The good news is that natural plant sodium is soluble and organic and is essential for your body. Organic, or live salt lets your body use the other nutrients you’re consuming. It works like this: all the cells in our body are constantly bathed in a salt solution. If this gets out of balance, we get dehydrated. So celery juice is a winner in summer for staying hydrated. Nature’s sports drink, minus the bright blue colouring.
Lemon juice is full of vitamin C and boosts your immunity.
Kale looks after your blood and bones – it delivers masses of vitamins K, A and C.
Mint is sweet and cooling and provides a little vitamin A and manganese.

DAILY GREEN JUICE

2 GREEN APPLES
1/2 LEMON, PEELED
2 LEAVES KALE, WITH STALKS
2 STALKS CELERY, WITH LEAVES
2-3 SPRINGS OF FRESH MINT

Run all ingredients through a juicer, stir or shake before drinking. It’s good on ice, too.

Make it into something else: If you blend this juice with 1/2 an avocado, it makes a yummy raw soup for a light summer meal or snack.

    I feel exactly the same way .. I wake up, grab my go-to ingredients, and just begin juicing on autopilot. It’s a nice morning ritual to wake up to :)
