Start your day with a hydrating and super nutritious green juice. This one combines fruit and veggies that may have a blood pressure lowering effect. Vegetable juicing offers an efficient method of extracting sugars, starches, proteins and enzymes in a concentrated form that is easy to consume and absorb. Avoid large quantities of fruit or carrot juices (too sweet) and dilute with water when you begin juicing as they are so highly concentrated.
If you require some TLC, you have come to the right recipe. No longer just an old wives tale or favourite of all Jewish grandmothers – there is actually science to back up the healing, immune-boosting and congestion-clearing properties of bone broths. This recipe uses a fresh chicken, but you can also chuck the remaining carcass of a roasted chicken (sans stuffing!) into a slow-cooker with the same ingredients, and leave it to simmer gently for 24-48 hours. Absolutely delicious!
