The Hulk: Incredible Food!Jason Firmager
We are planning my son’s superhero birthday party for next weekend and I always try to encourage the kids to drink all the juices I make. ‘The Hulk’ sold it to them. If you want to be mean and green, and of course incredible like the Hulk then this is the juice for you!
2 handfuls spinach
1/2 head of broccoli
1/2 a large cucumber
2 celery stalks
A handful of mint
A thumb sized piece of ginger
Push all the ingredients through a juicer, stir, pour, drink! (Don’t worry you won’t turn green, but you may begin to develop muscle if you combine this with a workout ;o)).
We all know that spinach is a great source of iron, but it is also loaded with vitamin C, it helps combat the formation of cancerous cells, great for keeping your skin supple and well hydrated and helps reduce high blood pressure.
Broccoli is the most highly regarded food for preventing cancer, a good source of vitamin K and is a great source of calcium ( even more so than milk! ).
Cucumber is made up of almost 96% water which is naturally distilled so it is great for hydration, it is great for hair growth and neutralising acidity.
Celery can help to relieve constipation, prevent the formation and development of stomach and colon cancer and is great for cleansing and detoxifying.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, what more is there to say?!
Mint is a great skin cleanser, it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and relieves heartburn and indigestion.
Ginger (okay, not exactly green) helps with nausea and is a great aid in digestion and is one of the oldest cures for colds!
After reading this you can see that this juice definitely warrants it’s name.
Until next time, Nese x
