I love to have a fresh juice in the morning since I don’t really like to eat breakfast and it’s a great way to let your system get a little extra time to reset. Beets are very effective at detoxifying your liver and they are high in iron, calcium, B vitamins and antioxidants. Kale, ginger, cucumber and lemon are also full of beneficial vitamins and nutrients and help cleanse the blood and fight inflammation. I added pear for sweetness or you could use an apple if you prefer.
When making fresh juice I recommend using the best quality ingredients you can to avoid pesticides and chemicals. I am fortunate to have access to a lot of locally grown and organic products but if you are using conventionally grown fruits and vegetables you might want to peel them before juicing. For a sweeter juice you could add one apple to the mixture. If you don’t have a juicer you can combine all the ingredients in a blender, add a cup of water or coconut water and strain the mixture through a strainer after you process it.
