Adding the option of healthy juice drinks or smoothies in the morning to start your day with a real kick of nutrients is more important during these winter months.
I found a couple of ideas from Cook, Eat, Smile by Bill Collinson and Sheridan McCoid so am sharing them with you today. I also find that blending a healthy mixture of fruit with some natural yoghurt makes a nice thick satisfying smoothie for the cold winter days and helps to ensure I get my 5 day.
Bill’s Winter Juice Boosts are Beetroot and Orange- where you get a medium beetroot, chop it into small chunks run it through a juicer adding the juice of 3 squeezed oranges.
Or an Apple, Lemon and Parsley one, where you just put the juice of 3 Apples with the juice of 1/2 a lemon add parsley and blend.
Remember anything you can do to counter the potential party excesses during December will help.
