Good morning guys! One thing I need in my life to kick start my days is a big jar of fresh pressed green juice! I’m totally addicted. It fills me with energy and pure freshness. I can honestly say that I have seen my skin developing better after drinking these green goodness every morning before my breakfast. What I use depends on what I have in hand. But I always try to use most greens and less fruits. Below you find the recipe for today’s juice.

You will need:

1 peeled lemon

1 cucumber

1 bundle of celery

1 thumb of ginger

some slices of pineapple

1 big handful of spinach

1 big handful of kale

Throw it in the juicer and enjoy how it fills your body with pure vitamins, minerals and good stuff! Simply a health-bomb in a glass


A healthy outside starts from the inside ❤

Vitamin-C for health and beauty

When I say vitamin-C, I’m sure many of you think of it as a booster for your immune system to help you fight those colds. Vitamin-C is one of the essential water-soluble vitamins, meaning your body doesn’t store it, you need to get it daily through your diet. Vitamin-C is also a essential nutrient for your skin and beauty too!

Let’s take a look at some of the few beauty benefits from vitamin-C:

It fights wrinkles: Vitamin-C is the most common water-soluble antioxidant in the skin. It prevents damage from free radicals

It brightens the skin: Vitamin-C help your body to produce collagen, that will lead to smoother more glowy skin. 

It protect your skin for sun damage: Eating food laded of vitamins and antioxidants will support skin health and fight signs of aging. It will help the skin’s ability to repair itself. 

Great sources for vitamin-C is citrus fruits (lemons, oranges, kiwi), papaya, broccoli, sweet potato and red bell pepper just to mention some.

As a grown up you should have around 75 – 90 mg vitamin-C daily. Including fruits, berries and greens to your meals will cover that easily!

Vitamin-C booster in a glass!
