CABBAGE. It might be your first thought when choosing the ingredients for your morning juice, but these amazing vegetables are a nutrition powerhouse and they're super accessible and affordable too!
Cabbages are busting with benefits;
- Skin food - They're high in vitamin C making them a powerful antioxidant! Great for fighting off those free radicals and for removing toxins from the body.
- Brain food - They're full of Vitamin K and flavonoids that support mental health and concentration (red cabbages especially)
- Gut food - known for their gut healing properties, they're fibre-rich and full of gut-friendly insoluble fibre - perfect for this time of year!!!
Red or green, juice it up with some fresh carrot, beetroot, celery, apple and a slice of ginger (or on its own for those who are hardcore!!).
Serves 2 (smallish glasses)
- Half a red or green cabbage
- 3 Celery sticks
- 2 carrots
- 1 thumb-sized sprig of ginger
- 1 apple
Add all contents to a juicer. Pour into your glass and enjoy!
