SAVE ME SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Handful of fresh spinach
Juice of 1 lemon
Fresh apple juice
1.5 cm fresh ginger, grated (optional)
200ml of fresh apple juice (or coconut water if you prefer)
Handful of almonds (optional, do not add if you have a nut allergy)
Now, if you have a juicer, you are sorted! Juice your carrot, apple and orange as usual then blast the rest in a food processor. If not, grate the carrot and apple first to help it break down, then top it up with the other ingredients in the food processor. Enjoy!
WHAT IS THIS GOING TO DO FOR MY HAIR?
The name for this month’s recipe has been well thought out. We knew that by helping you along with a quick and easy recipe (that, by the way, is also very delicious) would be the way forward.
Did you know the greener the vegetable, the higher the nutritional content? Well, beautiful dark spinach is loaded with folate, iron and vitamins A & C. Vitamin A helps the skin glands produce sebum… this oily substance helps to keep the scalp full of moisture and promote healthy hair growth, this is then backed up by avocado. These little beauties are packed full of essential fatty acids. These are crucial fats are not fats that can be produced by the body and are essential building blocks for your cells. They promote essential hair growth and help keep your tresses in tact. Now we know that we put almonds down as optional, and obviously please don’t add them if you have an allergy, however, if you can add them please do. They are brimming with biotin, an essential for healthy hair growth as well as protein, essential for the production of keratin… the key to strong and healthy hair.
