I just made this today as part of my detox and it really hit the spot. It was creamy and delicious and made me feel so deliciously full and satisfied.. Oh and my baby loved it too
1 orange juiced
2 cups of kale
1/2 inch ginger
1 stalk of celery
1/2 cup of de shelled hemp seeds (wonderful omega hit here)
1/2 cup of cashew
I used a blender for this and then strained it through. You would need a high powered one. Alternatively use a juicer first then blend the nuts and seeds into juice
I really think that if you start the day with good nutrition you are onto a winner.. Not only that but I like to know I have given my 7 year old and my 10 month old a blast of goodness so I don’t worry about what they eat the rest of the day so much.
So this is my family rainbow juice
I try to put as many colours in it.
1 tbs pumpkin seeds ( high in efa’s and anti parasitic and great for the digestion)
1 tbs ground flax seeds ( high in efa’s giving the brain a great start)
1 tbs de shelled hemp seeds ( more efa’s)
Handful of raw red cabbage
Handful of kale
1 raw beet root
1 cup of water
And anything else you want to throw in
I use the vitamix blender and then strain thru a muslin bag and drink.
Well Eliah is now nearly 10 months old and he has entered a new phase of food in the last few days… He wants to do it himself.. This is great. it means he is growing, becoming more indepenant…. but i am not sure how much goodness he is actually getting.. so i have started to give him a green juice with his meals..

3 inches of courgette (fresh from the garden)
1 handful of goji berries
