A favorite among the athletes in my family, this sweet, spicy tonic strengthens the chi, or life energy. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin A and calcium, which strengthen bones, teeth, skin, and muscles.
- 6 carrots
- 1 heaping handful spinach
- 2 long sprigs watercress
- 1 tsp. fresh tarragon
Juice all ingredients
The chlorophyll and iron in this juice help purify, oxygenate, and build blood. Both spinach and watercress juices act as diuretics, helping the body get rid of excess fluid and waste. Spinach juice is even an effective laxative.
For extra energy, add a teaspoon of green grass powder or an ounce of wheatgrass juice.
