Green Juice with Ginger

Use

Homemade juice used to maintain or lose weight. Solution that also promotes the “detoxification” of the body, in case of diet after excessive alcohol consumption.

A Swedish study published in September 2014 showed that spinach extract (juice) is used to lose weight and reduce cravings between meals. Read the full study .

Ingredients

A juice of 200 to 300 mL (for one person):

– 1 to two kale leaves .

– A lemon .

– 1 piece of ginger , the equivalent of two tablespoons, finely chopped or grated.

– Some spinach leaves (5-10 leaves).

– A few mint or mint leaves .

– 100 mL of water or coconut water. You can also use 200 mL of water for a smoother juice (for 2 people).

Preparation

– Wash all vegetables and leaves.

– Prepare the juice with 1 lemon.

– Chop the kale and spinach into several parts.

– Scrape or finely chop the piece of ginger. You can cut it into 3 or 4 small slices (remove the skin).

– Place 100 mL of water or coconut water and all the ingredients in a blender, adding the kale little by little to avoid clogging the blender.

– Stir well for a few minutes, which can take up to 5 minutes depending on the amount of kale.

– Filter if necessary, but usually not.

– Possibly add a little salt or pepper or a little sugar if you want a sweeter taste, and top up with a little water if necessary, especially if the juice is not very runny (or the consistency of a puree ).

Posology

– Consume preferably once a day in the morning or at lunch.

Expiration date

About 12 hours (if kept refrigerated). Otherwise, use should be immediate.

Comments

– This juice, also called green juice in some countries like the United States and Brazil, is increasingly in fashion, and is mainly used by Hollywood stars or famous actors from TV soap operas, with the aim of losing weight. In 2014, a study demonstrated the benefit of spinach juice for weight loss.

The famous American coffee chain Starbucks also started selling green juices in thousands of its stores.

– The green juice is a juice made from vegetables, giving a green color when mixed (pictured), with an interesting detoxifying effect, indicated to maintain or lose weight. It should be noted that the concept of “detoxification” is sometimes criticized by some doctors. In fact, from a scientific point of view, it is difficult to understand the exact mechanisms behind this concept. Would the liver or the kidney be involved? However, we can say that all the ingredients in this juice are very healthy, starting with kale, a food with a high nutritional power and used in staple foods in many countries, such as Russia and the United States. Spinach leaves, as mentioned above, seem to be really effective in weight loss.

There are several green juice recipes, and kale appears in many of them, since the detox effect is attributed to kale. In this recipe we add ginger to improve the taste, it is of course possible to remove it. Read the green juice recipe .

– Like all juice, it is important not to abuse it, otherwise there is a risk of diarrhea and other gastrointestinal diseases. It is recommended to drink 1-2 glasses of green juice a day, one in the morning and one possibly during lunch.
