Further to my blog post yesterday entitled “To Juice or Not To Juice?’ as promised, I have listed below a juice recipe which is said to contain less sugars. It is an acquired taste, but if it means that I can avoid some sugar spikes which can happen with fruit juices then so be it. I still want to enjoy my freshly squeezed orange juice in moderation, which will be no issue to those who like me, have a decent balanced diet. To sit drinking only juice at every meal sitting for weeks, just because daft celebs do it, is in my opinion not very bright and not something I would advocate.
It is VERY green which may just put some of you off but if you are into your juicing at the moment then this is another recipe to try out. It still does not answer the argument about the fibre element that I wrote about, but I know many of you have bought juicers and want to use them. Mine is now off into the back of my pantry again, as I imagine many others will do after they get bored of it. I enjoy all the ingredients individually and so want to eat them raw and as whole as possible. Yes I do eat raw cabbage, and have done for years as a salad. I cut it up and mix with a little white wine vinegar and olive oil.
So I hope you enjoy this green beast recipe, but also hope vegetable and fruit phobes will start to enjoy such produce as part of a proper meal, so that they can enjoy all the benefits.
The Green Beast
