There is no time like now to start incorporating green juice fasts into your normal diet and eating habits. This deliciously packed drink is mainly made up of all green leafy vegetables, fruit, seaweed (nori strips), spirulina powder and tender coconut water. It helps us to feel and experience new energy levels and awareness. This goes hand in hand with the journey that yoga takes us on and is wonderful for meditation.
All you need is a nifty juicer to juice all the above ingredients together, using your favourite fruit, but preferably melons, kiwi fruit and pomegranates and the right attitude to enable you to love doing it.
Even if it is only done once a week for a full day, it has numerous benefits and will change your life:
- Green juice eliminates drugs, chemicals and pesticides.
- Eradicates most food allergies and sensitivities.
- Juicing enhances spiritual and physical wellbeing.
- It increases mental clarity.
- Increases energy levels.
- Prevents chronic diseases caused by poor diet and lifestyle.
- Gives you glowing skin and helps you to lose weight.
- Gives the body a rest from constantly working on absorption and
- Allows more energy for constructive use as it reduces the energy used
for food digestion.
- Clears any mucous discharge.
