Morning Cleanser: Celery, Apple and Lime Juice

This is very easy to make. If you have a juicer. If you don’t, I wouldn’t waste any time in encouraging you to buy one. My life has changed since our Sage Nutri-Juicer rocked into our kitchen. All sorts of concoctions have been created. Things involving beetroots, others involving turnips. Some things were good, others were ugly. This particular juice is low in fat and calories but still high in benefits – and it tastes very refreshing and light. And the benefits don’t end there.

Celery is a great anti-inflammatory vegetable, it helps with digestion and is a stress-buster too. It can even amp up your sex life and help combat cancer. Whereas apples help to control your weight, detoxify your liver, boost your immune system and neutralise IBS (among many other things). Limes as we all know are our bitter-sweet citrus friends, bursting with vitamin C. This juice only uses one lime but you could go wild and add two if you’re feeling the tang. Celery Apple and Lime Juice It’s easy to make – the title sort of gives it away. All you need is this:

Half a head of organic celery = 60 calories

3 x organic apples (I chose Braeburn – a unique combination of sweet and tart) = 156 calories

I x lime (remove the peel before placing in the juicer!) = 20 calories

Makes 2 medium glasses

116 calories and virtually 0% fat.

And voilà!
