Juice is a great way to get extra vitamins, electrolytes and energy before or after a Bikram yoga session. I found this great recipe on In Pursuit of More — which is chock full of other great recipes with an emphasis on simplicity, wholefoods and vegan/vegetarian. Well worth checking out!
4 apples, skin on, cut into pieces
10 leaves kale
1 head celery
2 lemons, with skin on, cut into pieces
knob of fresh peeled ginger (optional)
Simply wash all ingredients – try to use organic vegetables and fruits for this if you can. Chop apples, lemons, and ginger. Be careful when juicing to put the greens and lemon pieces in with a stalk of celery or a piece of apple to prevent clogging (depending on your juicer’s strength).
Strain through a very fine sieve (or not if you don’t mind a little pulp at the bottom), and enjoy right away for maximum life force and vital energy.
