Green Juice

The Green Juice

Lately, I have been drinking this Green Juice that my friend recommended. Every morning on an empty stomach I drink this freshly squeezed juice. It’s so refreshing and it energizes me. Allow me to share with you the recipe and what the ingredients are for.
1 whole green apple pitted and seeds removed
½ stalk celery
½ cucumber 
½ green pepper
½ ampalaya (bittermelon)
Extract the juice from the veggies above and drink right away on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning.
Here’s a tip: If your juicer can’t accommodate whole fruits. How about slicing them into small pieces and placing on a plastic bag and store in the freezer. This way, it will be ready for you to extract and drink early in the morning.
