Romaine Cucumber Ginger Juice

There are many health benefits of drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables, and it’s a great way to add nutrients from the fruits or vegetables that you normally wouldn’t eat. Fruit and vegetable juices retain most of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that would be found in the whole versions of those foods. These nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer, and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis. Valuable compounds called flavonoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and guard against oxidative cellular damage, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and is exacerbated by exposure to chemicals and pollution.

Ingredients:

5 large romaine leaves

2-3 handfuls of baby spinach

2 cucumbers, skin peeled off

1 inch fresh Ginger, peeled

1 lime slice

Appliance: 

Juicer, Blender, or Nutri- Bullet

 

Directions:

  1. clean all veggies before running through the juicer.
  2. cut veggies into smaller pieces to fit machine (size depends on the appliance)
  3. run all veggies through the juicer, pour into your favorite glass and add a lime for garnish. PRETTY!

DRINK UP! Feel your body soak up all the nutrients! You will notice your body thanking you throughout the day.
