Apple Mint Fennel Juice

Print

It’s been really encouraging to see how many people are really trying to add more fresh juices into their diet. And why not, they are a such a delicious way to give a power punch of nutrients to your day. You can make the juices sweet while sneaking in the spinach, cabbage, celery and all sorts of vegetables that they normally might run from. Juices are best to drink at least twenty minutes before meals or just all by themselves for the best digestion.

This one is made with a rich purple cabbage and deliciously tangy sweet green apples, mint, lime and fennel. It is absolutely incredible! Just look at the lovely color that comes from it, every time I make juice I am amazed at how gorgeous the colors are. Just imagine, if it looks that vibrant and intense, think of how ALIVE it will make you feel on the inside!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Native to Europe, mint provides a healthy dose of flavor without fatty, sodium laden seasoning. At 1/4 cup a serving, fresh mint contains 4 calories, 0.5 g fiber and aids in the reduction of cholesterol and lowering one's risk of obesity. While traditional advice for saving the skin was based mainly on its fiber content (an average apple provides 4.5 grams), there’s a growing body of research to suggest that it's actually the polyphenols in the peel—non-digestible compounds capable of doing everything from increasing sexual pleasure to reducing cholesterol—that are responsible for the apple’s doctor defense.

Red cabbage provides antioxidant benefits, as it's rich in beta carotene and polyphenols. In its cooked state, it's easier for the body to absorb antioxidants and it's best to avoid boiling the cabbage as the water will remove nutrients from the cabbage. Native to the Mediterranean and Turkey regions, cilantro possesses a good amount of antioxidants, fiber and is rich in manganese, iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It's also great in combination with soups, sauces and poultry dishes. 1/4 cup/4 g of cilantro contains 1 calorie; 0 g fat; 0 g carbohydrates; 0 g protein; 2% daily value (DV) of vitamin C and 5% DV of vitamin A.
