Today I had a wonderful juice with spinach as the primary ingredient.
|I used about 3 x the spinach pictured here (under the cucumber), left over asparagus which was starting to go soft, left over fennel, one a half tomatoes, one left over from a sandwich and a bit of English cucumber.|
Asparagus is packed with nutrients like folic acid, potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, thiamine and rutin, a compound that strengthens capillary walls. Asparagus has no fat, does not contain cholesterol and is low in sodium.
Tomatoes are actually a fruit and not a vegetable though I still call it a vegetable. One of the greatest benefits of eating tomatoes is the high lycopene content. Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant that helps in the fight against cancerous cell formation as well as other kinds of health complications and diseases. Tomatoes are also especially good as source of Vitamins A and C.
I was able to add my left over fennel to the juice. If you missed my information about the health benefits of fennel, please click and read here.
This juice was delicious!
