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 ❤ and raw power 😉
