Beginning of the year I tend to feel a bit sluggish and tired I know it’s the stress and overeating during the holiday. So I like to let my body detox in January and I like to do it with vegetables, fruit, whole grains and vegetable juices. I avoid sugar, wheat and gluten and coffee. I start my day with a chia pudding and fresh fruit and for lunch or/and dinner I like to drink vegetables juices.

My favorite juice is a beet, lemon, celery, ginger and kale. Some people have a hard time drinking vegetables juices and beet juice even more but I found if it’s ice cold it does not taste that bad. A juicer is off course required for this juice. I like making up larger quantities and pour into recycled glass jars to keep in fridge. This way I have access to juice to take on the go if and when I need it.

1 large lemon, peeled
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled
2-3 large beets, peeled
3 celery stalks
2 large kale leaves
Juice everything and place in a jar with lid. Shake for a few seconds and then place in fridge to make it cold if so wish.
