Morning SuperGreen Powerhouse Juice

One of my favourite simple pleasures in life is a yummy juice or smoothie. Full of good nutrients and flavour, it is such an easy way to nourish your body and nurture your health and wellbeing.

Lately, I’ve been loving green juices. My fave versions are packed with celery, apple, kale, spinach and lemon - sometimes with added deliciousness such as pineapple, cucumber or banana...or even some avocado depending on my mood.  

Here’s a quick and simple green juice recipe to brighten your morning:  

Add to your high-speed juicer (or blender) 4 sticks of celery, a small handful spinach leaves, 2 large kale leaves, 2 roughly chopped Granny Smith apples, 1 lemon (peeled and de-pipped), 1 cucumber and a cup of coconut water (tip: blend your spinach and kale leaves first until fully blended before adding other ingredients). 

Drink first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, to start your day right!

Veganuary

The month of January brings opportunity and excitement. It’s a new year, a fresh start, a chance to reassess and renew, a time to create new healthy habits. January is the perfect month to switch up those eating habits in particular. So I’m changing up my eating habits by trying to incorporate more vegan choices for the month of January...or “Veganuary”!

Opting for vegan (or even vegetarian) dishes in the month of January is easy, and there are plenty of nutritious recipes to try throughout the month. Rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre, well balanced plant based whole-food choices are excellent for your overall health and wellbeing.

Here are some of my personal favourite plant based recipes to incorporate into the monthly food rotation for “Veganuary” - they are quick, easy and nutritious options. Some are fully vegan, some are vegetarian (but they can be easily modified to be fully vegan).

If you’re short on time (or meal ideas) during Veganuary, looking to take part, and based in Melbourne, My Goodness Organics offers delicious vegan meal plans that can get you started! 

I know I’m looking forward to incorporating a variety of different recipes into my month of Veganuary for better health and wellness! Are you thinking of taking part in Veganuary this year? Are you already vegan? What are some of your fave vegan dishes?
