Juicy Fruit - Breakfast number 4 of 5

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

I'm nearly there! I didn't realise how much time this would take when I started this. Taking photo's, uploading them, writing up the recipe, rechecking it! Re-wording it, starting again as the internet crashed, having to cook the dish again as I forgot to take a picture of the finished article!!


Breakfast number 4 is a simple juice. There are just 4 ingredients needed and a juicer. Yes, this really is bright pink.



Ingredients:


  • An apple, cored and quartered

  • 2 sticks of celery, cut into halves

  • a raw beetroot, top and tailed

  • a carrot, top and tailed






Method:


Wash all your ingredients and give the skin a good scrub. This helps to remove some of those pesky pesticides. Our bodies have to work harder when we feed them nasties, so just taking time to wash your fruit and veg is kinder to your body. Your liver has the task of detoxifying us, so it is good to give it any help you can.


Place the ingredients in your juicer and switch it on. Make sure the glass is under the spout before you turn it on, and allow all the juice to be removed from the juicer before you remove the glass. Beetroot does stain. (Handy hint - put some olive oil on your hands if you are chopping beetroot, it reduces the staining)


This can be made as a smoothie if you don't have a juicer, you will get all the fibre whereas the juicing removes it all. There are two schools of thought on this.


I like to make juice with these ingredients as this drink is thought to be a liver cleanser and I know a few livers out there that could do with the help. I just did a google search on liver cleanser juice and every recipe contained celery and beetroot.


I try and have this drink at least once a week, your liver is responsible for a lot of bodily functions, so it's good to give it some help.


These are the 5 main actions of the liver:

  • Filtration

  • Digestion

  • Metabolism and Detoxification

  • Protein synthesis

  • Storage of vitamins and minerals

And these are signs that your liver may be struggling:


  • Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice)

  • Abdominal pain and swelling

  • Swelling in the legs and ankles

  • Itchy skin

  • Dark urine color

  • Pale stool color

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Nausea or vomiting


Please love your liver and serve it this sweet and earthy juice.
