Happy Day 7!
How better to celebrate the end of our first week than with a juice that brings the prosperity of health.
I love to start my day with this juice.
It’s filled with fiber, gives you energy, and it tastes good – Abundance in a Glass!
Prosperity Green Goddess includes the green juice trifecta – kale, spinach, and cucumber.
This is not your usual green goddess – no, now more than ever, she’s aware of the Divine Consciousness FOREVER expressing It’s true nature of Abundance through her…and by her I mean You!
Today, you’re totally letting go and letting God appear in your Life AND Affairs!
What’s In This Juice?
I love kale because it’s full of fiber, detoxifies your body, fights cancer, and adds a noticeable glow to your hair and skin. Kale is filled with nourishing nutrients including vitamins K, A, C, B1, B2, B3, & B6.
Spinach* isn’t lagging behind. She’s filled vitamins, K, A, B2, B3, B6, omega-3 fats, iron and more marvelous minerals. Helping ease digestion and elimination, she and her BFF kale are Power Foods that will help deepen your feelings of relaxation.
Cucumber also detoxifies, it’s a natural diuretic, wonderful for your hair and skin, and has an extremely mild taste. A cucumber always adds way more juice than you think it can hold.
Peel your cucumbers unless you buy organic. The skin is awesome (filled with bodacious nutrients and goodies) but non-organic can be heavily sprayed with toxic pesticides.
Apples will sweeten any juice so if you don’t like a green full bodied taste (or if green juice makes you gag) add an apple. Granny Smith’s are best because they add sweetness and not too much sugar to your beverage. Use stevia to sweeten if needed. Start with 1 drop — it’s 300 times more potent than sugar.
Ginger will stop an upset stomach on the spot and intensify your prosperity experience! If you love ginger, use as much as you’re used to. It has a relaxing effect on your digestive system, and is very soothing overall.
Lemons are amazing. They liven up your drink, make it a little more refreshing, and will allow you to keep the extras in your refrigerator overnight without it turning to gunk.
No one wants to drink that on Day 8!
Simply give it a shake and enjoy 😉
