Yesterday I settled into my new home in Northern California. I took most of my evening and night to get unpacked, organize, get comfortable and caught up with some loved ones.
This morning I was feeling very cold, this part of California is rather cold/windy. After doing some yoga and doing my morning routine I wanted to make a juice that was green, sweet, and warming. I’ve made a Bok Choy juice before and the sweetness wasn’t right but I feel amazingly confident with this one!
Baby Bok Choy Pear Ginger Juice Recipe
1 small head Baby Bok Choy, probably around 7 or more leaves
2-inches ginger (more or less according to your preference)
1 1/2 pear, I used D’Anjou, the juice is sweet, creamy and the color looks nice with the other ingredients (or use as much or as little to please your taste buds)
1/2 lemon, rind removed
6 sprigs of fresh parsley (the fresh flavor in this helps connect vegetables and fruits together)
Optional, 1 piece of fennel bulb
This juice is pleasing on the easy, taste buds and belly! Warming drinks like this are a fantastic way to start off the day and help me get trucking along. Ginger is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory, my knees are bothering me a bit today so I wanted to get some ginger in me stat I’ve written before about the health benefits of fennel, but Bok Choy has not been discussed enough on my site.
Bok Choy is high in: vitamins A, C, it is low carbs, low calories, high in antioxidants, folic acid, fiber, vital vitamin b-complex, iron and potassium. This vegetable is from the cabbage family and tastes great in salads, veggie mixes, stir fry, with noodles or as a great dip scooper! Bok Choy looks like a mix of a collard green and a cabbage.
I hope you all find this juice as soothing and warming as I did! A cold body can be a terrible burden, the best thing to do is take care of yourself right away and try to ignore any negative chatter your brain may throw at you.
I have some reviews coming your way soon and most likely more recipes too.
Have a wonderful day! Eat something delicious that makes your body go MMMMmmmMm! Think of 5 things you are grateful for today, and your silly car can’t be one of them
Much love <3 and raw power
