5 Super Healthy Juices & Smoothies

J

anuary is one of those months when many of us start to exercise in the gym, eating healthy food and joining detox programs.

I also decided to improve my training program in the gym and of course, review my diet and move on from mince pies, gingerbreads and mulled wine onto healthier foods and drinks.

Especially now, in the middle of winter, we need to boost our immune system with fruits and veggies and the easiest way is to consume more juices and smoothies. This way you not only take most of your 5-a-day in one go but also drink plenty of liquid.

Although, too much of anything can be bad for you so please don’t forget to have a balanced diet whether you are on a detox, weight loss or simply increasing the amount of fruits and veggies you consume. I’m sure you do!

So let’s get healthy!
