High on my list of priorities, is self-care.

This takes place in many forms for me, from juicing, to shopping, to sitting under the shade of a tree on a glorious summer day.

As you know, things have been movin-and-a-shakin around here, so now more than ever is a crucial time to ensure this machine is crystal clean and operating efficiently.

I have been experiencing Acupuncture sessions with a Chinese Medicine Practitioner for the past 3 weeks. Now, although I have felt some minor results over the last few weeks, the effects of the last session really kicked in. I felt light, energetic, happy and ready to tackle what had seemed so hard just an hour beforehand.

There is a double whammy bonus to these weekly sessions, because I am forced to stop.

It leaves me with no choice but to switch off my phone, be still, and therefore actually meditate.

With my eyes closed during these ‘meditations’, I have been seeing beautiful colours swirling through my mind’s eye. For someone who loves colour so much, it’s an amazing thing to witness! Look at the awsomeness that happens when you allow it.

I feel like I have finally sprung into Spring – better late than never huh? 🙂

With Spring nearly over here in Australia, have you enjoyed the fruits/veggies in season to get you ‘springing’ in preparation for Summer?

I know I haven’t. To make up for lost time, I have created a simple zingy + refreshing juice for you.

Why it’s good for you.

Grapefruit – High in Vitamin C, lowers cholesterol and is ranked as one of the highest sources of antioxidants. This little gem is a beautiful allrounder.

Pineapple – Protein-digesting enzymes, protection again Macular Degeneration, Anti-inflammatory, Vitamin C, B1, Managanese.

Broccoli – rich with vitamin A and C, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and manganese. Fresh broccoli juice has also been proven to be beneficial to heart and eye health. Drinking broccoli juice daily lowers the risk of problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure.

Cucumber – Multi-purpose benefits include, supplying electrolytes for hyrdration, aids digestion. Cucumbers contain Silica which nourishes hair, skin and nails.
