Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 7 …  Grapefruit, Avocado, Spinach and Turmeric Juice.

Ok folks, it’s day 7 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with a “It’s all about the Turmeric” Juice … It’s Thursday, or more affectionately called Turdsday, it’s the first Turdsday back from the epic Christmas-New Year break and we all know what that means … It means tantrums as the alarm goes off, the inability to find any pants to wear let alone a decent shirt, the coffee machine is throwing a total wobbler (so no caffeine for you but plenty of milk for the carpet!) and there, in the distance, is Friday! It’s so near you can smell it …

So, why Turmeric you ask? Well…

Turmeric is a great source of Vitamins B6 and C, plus various Minerals (in particular Iron, MagnesiumManganese and Calcium). Turmeric has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and one of the main active compounds in Turmeric is Curcumin is believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and anti-oxidant properties.

Fun Fact: E100i relates to Curcumin and E100ii relates to Turmeric when they are used as a food additives.

Ingredients (Makes 1): 

1/2 Grapefruit

1/2 Avocado

A handful of Spinach

1/4 tsp Ground Turmeric

 

All about Turmeric

Turmeric has such an awesome colour I had to bob more on the spoon just for the photo!

 

Just peel the carrots, ginger and orange, slice it all up then bob in the juicer (for this one I’m using a Nutribullet so I also added 200ml water)!
