Energy Juice Recipe: Wake Me Up

Wake-Up Whammy

Here’s a Pick-me-up Juice with a vengeance. Make sure you choose the ripest possible tomatoes, as that’s when they’re at their most nutritious. Most people don’t realise that tomatoes are a member of the Solenaceae family, which includes potatoes, peppers and aubergines; they’re all relatives of the nightshade. For this reason, this juice is not ideal for anyone with rheumatoid arthritis, though it’s not a problem if you have osteoarthritis. To make it, stir the kelp powder (you can find it in most good health-food shops) into the juice just before drinking.

Tomotoes 4 medium

Sweet potato 1 small, unpeeled

ginger 1 oz fresh root

Celery 2 sticks, with leaves

kelp powder 2 teaspoons

Vital statistics:

Super-rich in Vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene and iodine. Contains potassium and folic acid, as well as all the protective benefits of the Carotenoids and vitamin C, this juice also contains some coumarin compounds from the celery which pep up the entire circulatory system, boost the protective function of white cells and lower blood pressure. The kelp powder is rich in iodine, which stimulates the thyroid and gets your body working in overdrive.
