Some days, there is nothing I love more than to start my day with a fresh veggie juice – packed with nutrition, easy to digest, and tastes so refreshing! I know it sounds cliché, but I truly feel like it’s nourishing every part of my being on a deep cellular level.
I don’t juice every morning, - I simply don’t have time. I find juicing particularly great on days when I don’t feel like sitting down to a big bowl of veggies for breakfast, but I still want to pack them in to the start of my day. I think it is important when making your juice to consider the quantity of vegetables you are putting in. You wouldn’t sit down to eat a kg of carrots in one sitting, so it’s probably not wise to juice a kg to drink in a matter of minutes! When I make a juice I consider how many veggies I would happily sit down to eat in a meal, and juice that portion. Often this makes a smaller glass, but I am completely fine with that. Sip it, and enjoy it!
This is my favorite recipe at the moment. It’s so yummy, very energizing, and has a lot to offer in keeping my immune system strong during these colder months.
Up-And-Go Energising Juice
2 stalks of celery
1 medium carrot, peeled
½ lemon, rind cut off
3-5cm knob ginger (I love ginger, so I add a big bit!)
Filtered water (I run this through the machine at the end to get the last of the juice out and dilute my drink a little)
Naturopathic tip: It is fine to add a little sweetness to your veggie juice in the way of fruit. Just remember to not go overboard. ½-1 piece is plenty. Also! Lemon, ginger, and mint all add sweetness, so give them a go too!
We’d love to see you giving this a go, or putting together your own combination for us to try! Tag us @the_well_nest_kitchen #wellnestwednesday #twnk #eatmoreplants

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy!
