Sweet Spinach & Pineapple Juice

Never in my life did I think that I, Haribo Queen, would drink (and love) green vegetable juice. But that’s what life is all about, isn’t it? Growing up and changing for the better…

If you’re a fellow ex sugar “addict” like me, you may still have a little bit of a sweet tooth — I know I do. But I’m not after that sickly, nasty, chemical-ridden sweetness anymore; I prefer that subtle, true, natural sweetness. And this green juice certainly fits the bill.

Easy Detoxifying Turmeric Juice

This post is dedicated to my best friend in London, who once told me that she consumes so much turmeric that she’s “pretty sure all my insides are orange”. Ha! Well, my sweet orange friend, here’s another turmeric recipe to add to your repertoire.

The benefits of turmeric is well documented and was even used as medication centuries ago in ancient India.

This potato salad has been in my life, well… all of my life. I clearly remember my mother making it when we had guests over for lunches, friend’s parties, dinner parties, and more growing up.

(In fact, before I knew I was pregnant, my early cravings were purely potato salad — I think I ate 3kgs of potato salad in a week before I realized I was pregnant!)

ABC Beetroot Juice

If you’re new to juicing, you may feel a bit intimidated of the vast amount of fruits you suddenly realise there are. “What goes with what?” “Wouldn’t that taste nasty together…?!” It can all be a bit of a head spin, not knowing what to do or what goes with what. I’ve certainly been there.

Luckily there’s the classic ABC beetroot juice, which, as its name can attest really is as easy as your ABCs and looks and tastes absolutely delicious and is so good for you — especially for our blood. It’s almost as if the deep, rich reddish-purple colour of beetroot (the star ingredient of the ABC juice) is a sign that it helps our blood… it certainly mimics the look of it!

As it turns out, beetroot boasts many blood health benefits: it’s packed with essential nutrients such as iron, manganese, potassium, folate and Vitamin C. Its numerous blood benefits include increased blood flow and lowering blood pressure. It also helps your blood platelet count to rise, which the case for me.
