For all of you who have overindulged during the festive period and are needing to kick start the new year to a new improved you. Try introducing juices into your diet.

2 large handfuls of baby spinach
1 handful flat leaf parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 of a cucumber, cut in half lengthways
1 handful of watercress
4 celery stalks
knob of ginger, peeled
Firstly wash all ingredients thoroughly.
If you are lucky enough to own a Vitamix then throw all in on low for 30 secs and the on full for a further 20 sec. Pour over ice and sip slowly to enjoy all the benefits.
If you have either a centrifugal juicer or a masticating juicer combine all the ingredients and pass though as you would usually do. Again pour over ice and sip slowly to enjoy all the vitamin and nutrient goodness.
I sometimes add chlorella, spirulina or a wheatgrass to give an added boost.
