Energy Juice Recipe: Wake Me Up
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
1 oz fresh root
Celery 2 sticks, with leaves
kelp powder 2 teaspoons

The kelp powder is rich in iodine, which stimulates the thyroid and gets your body working in overdrive.
