cucumbers and ginger root.
I’m kind of obsessed with these two items lately. They’re my two favorite ingredients in juicing/blending! They give off such a light, refreshing and energizing taste!
You think cucumbers offer little nutrition, because they’re mostly water? Think again!
These green bad boys offer some great health benefits! Yes, they have a high water content(~95%), but the skin has lots of Vit A- so don’t peel that stuff off, enjoy it. They also offer Vit C, folate, manganese, potassium, Vit B complex, they’re a good source of silica-which helps build the connective tissue in our bodies, they help regulate our body’s blood pH and the list goes on!
What about that brown, weird, knobby thing? Ginger-root! If you’re a newbie to ginger, it may be an acquired taste, it’s got a distinct flavor. But once you start experimenting with it I’m sure you’ll find it adds a unique element to your diet and taste buds.
Ginger is high in Vit B complex, potassium, copper, magnesium. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory, painkiller, anti-bacterial, and aids in reducing nausea.
I’m currently sipping on some cucumber, spinach, ginger, apple juice…so refreshing!
Do you incorporate these items into your diet?
