Green Juice


I am a green smoothie fan. It’s a lazy way towards your 5-A-Day. A friend of mine shared this recipe with me, originally from the Sirt food diet. It’s a juice recipe but I think it’s such a waste to throw away the solids and they don’t add that much to the calories anyway.

  • 2 large handfuls (75g) kale
  • a large handful (30g) rocket
  • a very small handful (5g) flat-leaf parsley
  • a very small handful (5g) lovage leaves (optional)
  • 2–3 large stalks (150g) green celery, including its leaves
  • ½ medium green apple
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ level tsp matcha green tea

She omits the green tea and adds mint, cucumber and chia seeds (the latter for protein). I prefer it less “earthy” and add orange and a handful of spinach too (for a creamier texture).

I don’t know much about the Sirt food diet but any diet advocating dark chocolate and red wine is one I think I could stick too! Cheers!

About Sneha

I am a pharmacist and homeopath and have advised people for many years on issues to do with health, weight and well being. My role has involved navigating my way through the burdensome and sometimes conflicting volume of information and advice from health experts about with what constitutes a healthy diet, what foods to avoid if you want to lose weight and the importance of exercise in weight control and maintaining health. Despite all this information being available, obesity in the UK continues to rise. Knowledge is one thing, but putting it into practice is another! Having lost 3 stones since the birth of my second child, people have been asking me how I did it. That's what has inspired me to write this blog and share my experiences in the hope that it inspires others to find their own path to achieving their health and beauty goals!
