When researching for my cauliflower post last week, I also stumbled across a very motivational juice post on my new favourite blog Eat Yourself Skinny. Now I know there are some negatives linked to juicing diets but I think as long as you stick to majority vegetable juices, you're in the safe zone. You want to steer clear of 100% fruit juices as they may taste like a tropical dream but are actually jam-packed full of sugar. The intention is healthy however, realistically you wouldn't sit down for breakfast and munch your way through two apples, two pears and three kiwi fruits would you?!
I hold my hands up - I've never tried a vegetable juice before so my guess is as good as yours... If I'm honest, I'm a little scared, but with additions like cucumber, mint and lemon I'm hoping all that kale and celery will be transformed into a light and fresh glass of deliciousness...fingers crossed!
Over the next few weeks London Towers is going to be juicing up a storm - we are going to kick off slowly with juice breakfasts followed by healthy lunches and dinners and see how we go from there! We will of course be sure to keep you posted on all favourites along the way but first up, we introduce...Ruby Juice!
1. If you have a juicer then the whole process should be a little quicker as you can literally chop everything in half and away you go. However as beginners we are starting out with a blender. So, just make sure you chop everything a little smaller and take off any hard rinds.
2. It's as simple as chucking everything into a blender, using the settings to blend fast and then slower, fast and then slower - until you have a juice consistency. (Feel free to add a little water to get the juicing going).
3. Once blended serve straight up or if you want a smoother finish pour through a sieve
4. Slurppppp away!
