Ready. Steady. Juice!


07-01-2015 10:30

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to stay healthy and incorporate more nutritional food into your diet, there’s no better way than starting with some simple juicing recipes. Try these two juices recommended by Derval O’Rourke and kick off 2015 with a spring in your step!

 

My sister, Clodagh, is an expert when it comes to juices and smoothies! Whenever she comes to stay with me the first thing she does in the morning is make a fresh juice. She gave me the two recipes below. The Mango & Berry Juice is bursting with antioxidants, which are thought to promote anti-aging processes in the body. The Apple & Ginger Juice has anti-inflammatory properties and I believe it reduces stress on my muscles and joints after bouts of heavy training.

Ideally, you should use a juicer for these recipes. Juicers are troublesome to clean but they do allow you to make big batches of juice. Sometimes I use a regular blender to make juices. Whatever equipment you use, store homemade juices in airtight glass containers in the fridge. Drink homemade juices the same day you make them so that you maximise their nutritional benefits.

Both recipes are extracted from Derval’s book, Food For the Fast Lane. Recipes to Power Your Body and Brain, published by Gill Books. Available in our online store & as an eBook!
