Green Ninja Juice

by Polly N on September 19, 2010

This is one of the best juices I have made recently. The pineapple masks the taste of the aniseed from the fennel (which personally I’m not a huge fan of) while the ginger gives it a nice anti-inflammatory kick!

Fennel has a calming effect on digestion and is very good at reducing bloating. It contains naicin, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphoris, copper, folic acid, potassium and manganese – to name a few! Pineapple also helps to reduce any bloating or swelling thanks to the bromelain and anti-inflammatory properties that it contains.

I drank a lot of pineapple/celery/fennel juice when I developed lymphoedema (swelling) in my leg after surgey a few years ago and found it really made a difference. Infact, I managed to pretty much rid myself of the condition that I was told I would have to live with for the rest of my life. I told that nurse that I would prove her wrong using diet and other techniques – she raised her eyebrows in disbelief but I did it! Every time I went back, she would be amazed at how much my leg had reduced in size. The professionals don’t always get it right! I count on that fact!

Juice:

  • ½ fennel bulb
  • ¼ pineapple
  • Inch ginger
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 shot wheatgrass (optional)

ENJOY!
