In the Reboot Kitchen: Australia Day Juices

This weekend is Australia Day! I was inspired to come up with two beautiful green and gold juices for this very special weekend. Color is an indication of the nutritional content and is also very appealing to our appetite and senses, this ensures we digest a wide-variety of plant rich micro-nutrients.

Green fruits and vegetables indicate chlorophyll, folate, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and other minerals while yellow and orange colored fruits and vegetables indicates beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, flavonoids, lycopene, potassium, and vitamin C.

You can also find these juice recipes in our 101 Juice Recipes app and book.
