Oh hey friend! I hope you’re having a splendid week. It’s been ridiculously warm here in Sask and I’ve been feeling a little drier than normal, so I’ve been whipping up this little juice to help keep me cool and hydrated. As you get warmer and start sweating more you lose important minerals that catalyze a lot of really important functions in your body so it’s very important that you keep replenishing them regularly.
Luckily, Mother Nature has got you covered! She’s created lots of bountiful produce just chock full of important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, manganese, phosphorous, & silica. And those are just the minerals in the humble little cucumbie! Sweet celery and lemon don’t want to be left out of the party though as they both supply heft doses of the above minerals plus molybdenum (celery) and selenium, sodium, & zinc (lemon). Plus, any whole food is going to give you a sweet boost of antioxidants and vitamins so this juice is a really powerful way to hydrate this summer. Try adding a little sparkling water for a fizzy mocktail. 🙂
