Up the nutrient intake at this year’s Sedar and include fresh juice to celebrate this tradition! Not only is this Passover Purple Juice bursting with flavor it also boasts potent phytonutrients like the antioxidant anthocyanin, linked with helping to reduce cancer risk, inflammation, age-related memory loss and cognitive function. Blackberries even have a higher ORAC score, a measure of antioxidant status, than blueberries! (Although all berries are a great source of antioxidants).
Spring is starting to sprout with sunny days and warmer temperatures. Root vegetables and produce like apples and pears are perfect for seasonal eating or juicing. Celery root has a fresh scent and is rich in electrolytes potassium, sodium and magnesium making it a perfect choice for before, during or after exercise.
This past weekend was Australia Day so I was inspired to come up with two beautiful green and gold juice 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.
