The famous Dr. Oz, from The Dr. Oz Show, had this beautiful green drink on his site that I thought, I HAVE to have that! I went to my fridge and made a juice based upon his. Now I have to be honest, I didn’t have his specific drink, however, mine was delicious too! Please try his drink, which can be found by clicking here.
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cucumber
- 3 stalks of celery
- 1/4 inch fresh ginger
- 2 apples: quartered
- Juice of 1 lime
Place all ingredients into juicer, alternating different items. Stir the lime juice in last.
This is by far one of my favorite green drinks. AMAZING! It’s refreshing from the cucumber with a nice spicy zing of ginger. Out-of-this-world.
Benefits of cucumbers:
- Helps keep body hydrated since 96% is water based
- Potassium found in the cucumber helps to control both high and low blood pressure
- Helps prevent splitting of the nails
- The seeds are used to treat tapeworms…interesting.
- Helps promote healthy hair growth 🙂
So, what is to this 21-Day Juice Challenge? It’s simple. If you want to participate, you can do so by either juicing every day or when you want! There’s no set time or what should be in your juice! It’s entirely up to you. I simply want to empower you to do something good for yourself. Some people don’t have enough time to eat 5-10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day – some people don’t eat any – this is a fast way to be sure that you are receiving great benefits of juicing! As I have mentioned, you will receive lots of nutrients, vitamins and more.
You may ask why 21 days. Studies have shows that it takes 21 days to create a habit, which means something you do daily. I want this to be a healthier part of our lives together. If you feel compelled, please join me in this journey and we can juice together! What is your favorite juice?
