Max Tuck's - Green Power Juice
Green Power Juice
One of the most important additions you can make to your diet from a nutritional perspective is the green sprouted foods. Large tray greens, such as wheatgrass and sunflower greens, are an excellent source of bio-available protein, and contain all the essential amino acids. From an energetic perspective, the sunflower greens have the largest Kirlian field of all, extending out 2 feet in every direction, making them the most energetic of all plants. For athletic recovery, and fueling for endurance races, I put all my athlete clients on "green power" juice. Unlike those widely-touted sports drinks, this contains top quality nutrition that not only assists in cellular hydration and recovery, but gives whole-body benefits. See below for the recipe!
(all ingredients should be organic if possible)
- 1 cucumber
- 4 sticks celery
- 1 handful wheatgrass
- 1 handful sunflower greens
- 1 handful pea shoots
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 handful kale (optional)
- Half a lime
- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger root
- Run all the ingredients through a good single or twin auger juicer (note: cheap centrifugal juicers are not up to the job, and the Champion juicer will not do wheatgrass). Drink immediately before a long run or endurance event, and take some round with you too!
