Welcome back to Meg’s Kitchen! Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for a drink I have nearly every day for vitality, strength, energy, health– it’s literally like spinach for Popeye!
My Beautiful Skin Drink Recipe consists of only four ingredients:
- Spinach (a few handfuls)
- One tomato
- Lemon juice, to taste
- Water, to taste
- Optional: cilantro, salt, black pepper, cumin
That’s it! Blend it all in a small blender (NOT a juicer!) like the handy-dandy Magic Bullet. I promise you, the juice tastes SO much better than you think it does by the sound of it! It’s delicious! I’ve converted many a non-believer once they tried it. And because the spinach is blended, you can drink so much more of it than you would consume by eating a salad (which takes forever to chew anyway).
Vegetable juices are an amazing way to get part of your daily vegetable or fruit requirement out of the way with minimum time and hassle.
I drink my spinach juice about 5 times a week for clear and glowing skin. It also is an awesome energy booster, so it’s great to have as soon as you come home from work or school in the afternoon!
Tomatoes, rich in vitamins C and K, have anti-cancer benefits and support bone and cardiovascular health. The vitamin A in spinach is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it fights free radicals, keeping your skin (and the rest of your body) healthy and youthful. Because vitamin A is fat soluble, be sure to eat a small snack along with your spinach juice (a few dry roasted salted peanuts are a tasty option!)
Vegetable juices are hugely popular among celebrities ranging from actor Shahrukh Khan, to Hollywood actress Freida Pinto, to Bollywood legend Sridevi. Do try it and let me know what you think!
