Green Goddess - mother of all juices!

Dark green leafy vegetables should have their own spot on the food pyramid, considering how nutritionally potent they are. In fact they have one of the highest nutrients per calorie ratios!

So, as the name suggests, the star of the show is a dark green leafy veggie, and a popular one at that - Spinach! Bursting with Vitamin K, its great for bone health and also provides anti inflammatory benefits and host of antioxidants. Oranges are a great source of Vitamin C, as we all know and protect our DNA from free radical damage (includes the damage that causes signs of ageing)! Bottle gourd or opo squash is great for liver health and helps detoxify.

So, here is the recipe which makes 4 glasses.


3 bunches of spinach
1 bottle gourd
5 oranges
1 piece of ginger
1 small piece of turmeric (optional)


Wash and juice!
