Kale: Full of fiber and vitamin C, kale hydrates your body and increases your metabolism.

Lemon: Having lemon first thing in the morning helps flush out toxins.

Ginger: Ginger can lower the blood glucose levels, cutting your craving for a sweetened porrideg or morning latte.

Mint: Not just for mojitos! Mint stimulates the digestive enzymes that absorb nutrients from food, consume fat and turn it into usable energy. Adding mint to your diet increases the amount of fat that is being consumed and put to use, rather than being stored. 


Blueberries: The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging - half a cup a day keeps the wrinkles at bay!

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are chock-full of the unsung nutrient hero magnesium which can help keep cortisol (the stress hormone) levels low and start your day on a somewhat more serene note.

Apple: With lots of vitamin C, apples can help speed up the skin's cell production, which makes you look radiant, and glowy.

Wheatgrass and : Wheatgrass is a powerful detoxifier, it protects the liver and the blood, and neutralizes toxic substances like nicotine and mercury. Extracts from chlorella can help improve the production of your skin's collagen, the primary protein responsible for elasticity (read: younger looking skin). 

Energy Matcha: Ditch the coffee, the energy boost you get from Matcha is largely due to its unique combination of other nutrients rather than its caffine content, and without the usual side-effects of stimulants such as nervousness and hypertension. It’s good, clean energy.

Protein powder: Chalkiness, grittiness, too much sugar, suspect filler ingredients, poor taste, digestive issues (yes we mean bloating and gas), can be commonplace among protein supplements. We love Vegan Warrior for its all-natural ingredients and delicious tase; the classic version contains only raw sprouted whole grain brown rice protein.

Oats: Adding oats will help thicken up your juice. But not only that, they contain a specific type of fibre known 'asbeta-glucan' that slows down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. This slower digestion prevents dramatic spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels that would otherwise encourage fat storgae.

Coconut Water: You can make this with still water or add coconut water for a potassium boost.
