Food: Cucumber, Mint, Grape & Pear Juice
Cup of Grapes
3 Mint Sprigs
I call this juice “Summer Green”. The color of this juice is amazing! Not to mention it is an instant shot of health. I love using cucumber in many of my juices as a base, because the taste is not over powering and it yields so much juice. I also leave the skins on the cucumber when I juice but I make sure I soak the cucumber in vinegar or baking soda for at least an hour to get the waxy stuff off.
Some of the health benefits of this drink include:
-High in vitamin C %30 of your daily dietary needs
-High Potassium 12% of your daily needs
-The mint acts as a skin cleanser and anti-inflammatory agent.
-Grapes increase the nitric oxide levels in the blood, which prevents blood clots thereby reducing the chances of heart attacks.
-Ripe grape juice is an important home remedy for curing migraine.
