Celebrity Juice Recipes / by Laura Scanlon

Why Juice 

Juicing has become increasingly popular and as someone who has a love/hate relationship with vegetables I try incorporate a juice into my diet everyday. If I don't have time to use my Nutribullet I buy one in my local health food shop, which also have become increasingly prevalent in most cities around the globe. 

 

Juicing can be a very good supplement to your daily diet, increasing nutrient intake from vegetables & fruit. Juices are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and plant compounds that may protect against disease.

One thing to take note of if looking for weight loss is not to consume juices with high amounts of fruit as fruits have high sugar content. Minimise your fruit and maximise your vegetables when juicing. 

Celebrity Juice

Many celebrities claim their secret weapon to high energy levels and glowing skin comes down to having a juice a day. I have to agree that when I started incorporating juices into my daily diet I noticed my skin had a glow and also I became more immune to colds and flus, which before I was prone to getting colds every couple of month. The antioxidant levels are very high to protect against immune fighting illnesses. If you are looking for new juice/smoothie recipes, look no further as I have an A-list of some below. Happy Juicing :)
