Healthy Juice Drinks – Iron, Like a Lion in Zion
If you’ve been getting a bit anemic lately and are feeling a little run down then it’s possible you are lacking a bit of iron in your diet. That’s where the Iron, Lion Zion juice drink comes in handy. Whether you are not eating properly or you are a vegetarian and need a boost, if you get anemic then you can end up feeling depressed, tired or lethargic and leave yourself open to colds and flu. Get one of these iron rich juice drinks down you and you’ll soon feel a lot better:
Take the following ingredients:
250g (8 0z) of spinach
25g (1 oz) of parsley
250g (8 oz) of carrots
1 heaped teaspoon of spirulina
Chuck the carrot, parsley and spinach into a juicer and juice vigorously for a couple of minutes. Then stir in the spirulina. Pour it into a fat tumbler, add a bit of ice and if you’re feeling really fancy, decorate with a slice of cucumber of carrot.
Not only does this juice drink taste awesome, but it will also give you a grand old dose of folic acid to build up those red blood cells, some chlorophyll to help fight that fatigue and a massive dose of all-important vitamin B12 from the spirulina. All of that for just 229 calories!
