Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 29 …  Kiwi fruit, Romaine Lettuce, Cucumber, Super Greens and Coconut Water.

Ok folks, it’s day 29 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with “Envy” … Another Friday is upon us! Unfortunately for me, as I work in Finance, this Friday means possibly working late tonight (last Friday of the month and all that). It’s not unusual for me to do a 12 hour shift on these days. So my body needs a right good dose of goodness, which is exactly what this concoction is all about.

It’s only called “Envy” because that is how I’ll feel watching my non-Finance colleagues leaving at normal time.

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

Wheatgrass is an amazingly rich source of various Vitamins (particularly A, B1 – Thiamine, B2 – Riboflavin, B3 – Niacin, B5 – Pantothenic AcidC, E and K) and Minerals (we’re looking at Potassium, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Manganese and Selenium) … Ideal for days in which you know you need a boost just to get through a long shift!

Ingredients (Makes 1): 

1/3 Cucumber

1 handful of Romaine Lettuce

1 Kiwi fruit (peeled)

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

 

Envy

 

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)!

Envy!

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve considered trying wheatgrass but never have. I’m not juicing like you this month but I’m making lots of soup, I definitely feel healthier 🙂

      Ooooo I love soups! What’s your favourite? I make them and freeze batches to take to work during the week … I need to start making those again. Like you though, physically I do feel better for trying this out 🙂 x
