Clear Your Head, Make a Difference
Back in April my boyfriend and I had 6 weeks off the booze, in an attempt to be healthier and to save some money. It really wasn’t that hard especially since we were doing it together. We felt energised and positive! So when I heard of “Dry July” – a charity that raises funds to help adults living with cancer – I thought, why not participate? It’ll give me an opportunity to have another month off and re-focus, and more importantly, it’s a good deed!
A colleague of ours is currently going through the heartache of helping her loved one fight cancer, so we have set up a workplace team to show our support. If you wish to donate, you can do so by visiting http://au.dryjuly.com/team/chesswealthpartners.*
A month without alcohol is also a good motivator to eat clean. I must admit that lately I have been indulging a little more than I should be in sweets and processed foods (white flours and sugars.. I’ve been naughty!) so this is a good time for me to reset. I’ll be making an effort to have a juice or smoothie everyday and to eat clean.
I kicked off the morning this Energising Green Juice.
- 1 green apple
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 stick celery
- 4 leaves kale
- 2 sprigs mint
- 1 lemon, peel removed
- 2cm-piece ginger
Put all ingredients through a juicer. Simple!
You can use any combination veggies and fruits you like. There are no rules.**
Stay tuned for more clean recipes throughout my Dry July!
**Remember to eat the colours of the rainbow – mostly veggies. Fruits are still high in sugar so have these in moderation. More green veggies = higher alkalising effect = better for you! Happy juicing! x
