Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 28 …  Apple, Watermelon, Cucumber, Super Greens and Coconut Water.

Ok folks, it’s day 28 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with “Dreaming in Green” … I’m so ready for Aerial Silks tonight! I’m very lucky to have a very supportive group of ladies who not only cheer when I manage one of the moves, but laugh when I fall on my butt (I don’t take this as an insult, as I’ve said before I’m not the most graceful of creatures – usually I’m laughing myself to within moments of peeing myself when this happens).

So, what is Spirulina? I hear you cry! Well…

Spirulina is an algae and … Wait! Hear me out! I know it sounds gross but trust me on this … It is an algae and it is a powerhouse of nutrients! It is a great source of Protein, Vitamins (we’re talking B1 – Thiamine, B2 – Riboflavin, B3 – Niacin, B5 – Pantothenic Acid, B6, B9 – Folate, C, E and K) and Minerals (particularly Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc) plus, a little of this goes a long way!

Ingredients (Makes 1): 

1/3 Cucumber

1/4 Watermelon

1 Apple (peeled and cored)

1 tsp of Super Greens (a Wheatgrass, Barley Grass, Chlorella and Spirulina mix from Body Me)

 

Dreaming in Green ingredients

 

Just slice it all up then bob in the juicer (for this one I’m using a Nutribullet so I also added 200ml Coconut Water)!

Dreaming in Green!

 

Enjoy!
