Today's green juice
This morning I made this delicious juice. It contained 4 kiwifruits, 1 apple, peach, 2 handfuls of kale. Not only did it taste good but it was super healthy! Let me tell you why…
Kale - One serving of Kale contains just 30 calories and provides a day's worth of vitamin C, twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, and nearly seven times the recommended amount of vitamin K.
Kiwi fruit - Kiwis are a good source of vitamin E, an antioxidant known to protect skin! It also high in vitamin C which boosts our immune system. With a great source of fiber, Kiwi’s helps prevent constipation and other intestinal problems
Peaches - They are rich in many vital minerals such as potassium, fluoride and iron. Iron is required for red blood cell formation. Fluoride is a component of bones and teeth and is essential for prevention of dental caries. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
All these great health benefits in one drink, not to mention I’ve had 4 of my 5 portions of fruit and veg required daily before 9 o clock this morning. What a healthy way to start the day!
