I am blessed to be the owner of an organic home delivery company Organic Angels and have an endless supply of fresh organic produce. I sometimes wonder how I would manage without the business supplying my fresh organic fruit and veggies, and I think I would have a very big veggie patch. It is always better to eat organic (and juice organic), if you can’t get it have a try growing your own.
Actually in our garden (yes, we do have some things growing!) we have beans, beetroot, tomatoes, lettuce, herbs and cucumber. No credit goes to me mind you, but my dear in laws who reside with us. They love it and so do our boys. The other day I saw my son munching away, thinking it was a snail or something random, when I asked him what he was eating, he replied with a grin “a bean”, and off he goes to play!
This mornings juice was mint, carrot, cucumber and beetroot. This was really easy to drink, really refreshing in fact, but as I gulped 2 glasses on the run on an empty stomach I did feel a little queezy afterwards.
I use a slow pressed juicer, which means that it operates at a lower speed, gently sqeezing and pressing the produce without harming living enzymes. This makes it a very nutrient rich juice. It is always best to have a juice on an empty stomach, but if you are starting make sure you sip it slowly and even add filtered water. I will try that again tomorrow to avoid the belly ache.
