A straight shot of health

One of the easiest ways to improve your health, is by drinking fresh juice!

It is delicious! One of the most satisfying drinks on a hot summers day, is an ice cold freshly squeezed green juice – I absolutely love it!

It is vibrant and full of goodness – a straight and instant shot of health.

In the green market I found these wonderfully ripe and incredibly sweet pineapples on sale, and in my garden, I have Swiss chard – yellow and red. I love the taste of fresh chard and I use it a lot. In green smoothies and in juice but also gently sauteed with fresh ginger, garlic and a dash of soy sauce. – Today I juiced it with the ripest and sweetest pineapple. No artificial sugar or colors – just pure nature. Served on ice, it is the best summer drink you can ever imagine!

Swiss chard is a great source of anti-oxidant,  vitamin C, vitamin K and a rich in omega 3. it also is a great source of minerals such as calcium and iron.

Along with the pineapple that is rich in vitamin A and C – great source of calcium and copper – this is a power drink full of goodness and great taste.

      • I’ve made them in the oven before (180F/90C for 4-5 hours or until crispy) and it definitely gives them a toasty flavor which I liked. They also stuck to the wax paper or my pan which I did not like. Would you let me know if you try it in the oven and can work out some of the kinks?
