Our skin is the largest ‘organ of elimination’ of the body. It acts as an “overflow” to help clean excess toxins out of the body. The ingredients in this juice assist the cleansing action of the skin.
I really like the clean flavour of this juice. There is no standout ingredient or distinct flavour and it is not sweet or bitter. It is a well-balanced neutral flavour that has a certain softness to it, just how we want our skin to feel.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 handful Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 2 stalks Celery
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1/2 Beetroot
  • 1 Orange

Preparation

Baby Spinach
  • Wash well to remove dirt
  • No need to cut anything
 
Cucumber
  • Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
  • Juice with skin on
 
Celery
  • Chop into small thumb size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it wrapping around the press)
  • You can juice celery leaves, however it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like it
 
Carrots
  • Cut carrots lengthwise
  • If larger carrots are used cut lengthwise again, into quarters
 
Beetroot
  • Cut in half and then into quarters
  • Slice each half into thin slices to make it easier to press.
  • Juice with skin on (you can also juice the leaves and stems if you have them).
 
Orange
  • Remove the skin leaving as much white pith as possible
  • Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute

Instructions
 

  • Start by grabbing a handful of the spinach leaves and squeezing them into a tight ball, then add them to the chute of the juicer.
  • Next, add the cucumber chunks to push the leaves down.
  • Then add the celery one handful at a time. Let the machine juice all the greens, before adding the next lot of ingredients. Add the carrot halves and beetroot slices.
  • Finish by adding the whole peeled orange.

Liquid Nutrition

There is more to every fruit, vegetable and leafy green than taste and flavour. Each one has a unique signature or a "sign from nature" indicating what part of the human body its nutrition targets. The light or the colour of fruits and vegetables can help us heal emotionally (think colour therapy) and the lessons the fruits, vegetables and leafy greens learn when growing get passed onto us, to help us, when we consume them.
