The ultimate green juice
I started to drink half a liter of green juice + glass of water (body temperature) with lemon on an empty stomach twice a week.
Working till late
I’m in a pretty busy work phase. I build websites, have been very busy with the redesign of this blog – almost ready. I have the freedom to organize my own time, which often results in working till late. And I mean LATE! When I don’t have an appointment in the morning, it’s not really a problem. I can sleep in a little and work till late again (meh ;)). It’s just a different rhythm. Which is fine. For a little while.
The green juice…!
Then there are days that I do need to get up early after a deadline. I wanted to figure out if the stories about the green juice (they give you energy, even after a short night) were true. So I tested that after a short sleep.
If I don’t get enough sleep, I do not function. I’m a zombie, lose my memory, get distracted. I’m even clumsier than I normally am. I’m a danger on my bike and I look angry! Plenty of comparable things to look at.
Today I’ve been drinking the juice after about five hours sleep and voila: I felt pretty good! Sometimes really great. Full of energy jumping around, sharp and all that.
The test: green juice in the morning after a short night: V SUCCES!
You have to make sure that this is the only thing you have in the morning. Half a liter of this juice and then have a regular lunch.
- handful of wheatgrass
- 3 green apples
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 lemon
- piece of ginger
- Cut the apples, cucumber, lemon and ginger.
- Juice them alle together with the wheatgrass.
Additional: slowjuicer (not every slowjuicer is capable of juicing wheatgrass)
