Pear-Spinach Green Juice
- 1 pear
- 1/4 cellery stalks

Juice in your juicer, add more water to your preference. Variation: add 1 whole organic lemon (unwaxed, washed).
Why do I drink a green juice in the morning?
- To lower the acidity of my internal pH and get a balanced internal start into the day.
- To fill up my reserves of nutrients and start off with a good proportion of protein. 2 handfull spinach leaves (around 60g) contain 2g protein = 4% of your daily needs according to the USDA nutrient data. In other words – spinach is 30% protein. Quite an impressive number when you compare it to beef which is 40% protein.
- It is tasty and gives me energy. I know I am doing something really good for myself and feel very happy about that and am thankful for myself consciously taking care of my well-being.
