My two cents on juicing in Revista Ya, including some of my favorite juice recipes!

All freely translated back into English…

The New York based Norwegian former model Katrine van Wyk is one of them. A certified holistic health coach and nutritionist at The Institute of Integrative Nutrution in the US, is convinced that drinking vegetable- and fruit juice, while avoiding processed food, maximizes the daily vitamin intake.

           – You feel an influx of energy and the vitality reaches you almost instantly. Furthermore, these juices also help hydrate the body. The one I make the most is one that contains kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, lemon, ginger and a little apple. Generally I try to keep the fruit content low, because juicing removes the fiber and leaves a lot of concentrated sugar. That’s why fruit is never the main ingredient, just an element which brings flavor, she explains. 

It’s not advisable to substitute meals for these juices with strategically picked ingredients. Katrine explains:

            – We need fat and proteins; a juice can’t give you enough of these. To me, the best is to drink these juices between meals, on an empty stomach. Some people can have a big glass of green juice twice a day and feel good, for others that can be too much. The ideal is slowly increasing your intake, always as a part of a balanced diet.
