It’s snowing in London to round off the week, & I thought that being a Swede / Viking / Thor, I’d be used to this kind of weather by now, but no, BRRRRRR! If you’re feeling a little under-the-weather but still want to keep up your energy to train, this recipe may come in handy. It’s my ‘Vegetable Recovery Juice’, and it’s immune boosting, packed with vitamins, minerals & antioxidants, low calorie, rich in dietary fibre, and could be just what you need to get the weekend started. It is also be the perfect hangover cure to end the weekend. Either way, have it this weekend!

Grab these gorgeous veggies next time you’re passing a shop (Braeburn apples, Jaffa oranges, carrots and parsley – all organic). Wash, peel, chop, and then blend with water until it’s smoothie-texture. It takes max 10 mins to make, and you can store any extra in the fridge for tomorrow! It’s thick and very filling. The juice is packed with iron (for blood oxygenation and strength), vitamin C (neutralises harmful free radicals, boosts immune system), vitamin A (for healthy sight) and folic acid (anti-carcinogenic, immune-boosting & anti-inflammatory properties).

Some  extra benefits ? READ MORE


1) APPLE: This is the perfect everyday, 80-calorie snack. As well as the vitamins & fibre, it also contain ursolic acid (cosmetics companies use this for its anti-ageing & collagen-boosting properties as well as skin firming).
2) PARSLEY: A great extra benefit is the parsley’s luteolin which speeds carbohydrate metabolism along!
3) CARROT: Fancy a tan? Its orange colour contains β-carotene which is partly metabolised to vitamin A in us humans (eyesight) – though too much can give your skin a (temporary) orange hue! Carrots are also full of dietary fibre, antioxidants and minerals, and are proven to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
4) GINGER: There are only 80 calories per 100g, it’s bursting with plenty of the vitamin B complex, as well as potassium to look after your heart and blood pressure too.

Drink up and have a nice weekend! Faya x
