Juice Foods that Create Warmth

Winter is the season of hibernation so we need to juice foods that create warmth and support the kidneys like sweet potatoes, fennel, leek, garlic and onions. Bitter foods like turnips, celery and beetroot are also good to strengthen the heart during the cold month of winter.

Broccoli, cauliflower, grapefruit, radish, leeks, ginger and kohlrabi can all help with the winter feeling of stagnation.

In winter nature provides us with all the citrus fruits, high in Vitamin C which is important for venting colds and flu’s.

It’s also a good idea to drink hot broth made from veggie soup as part of any winter juicing program.

Here is a list of what’s in season during the winter.

Winter Juice Recipes

You may not feel like juicing during winter but it is the perfect tonic to lift your spirit from the winter blues.

To alleviate the winter depression juice more orange and yellow foods as the phytonutrients target the brain to uplift your mood.

Many people also find it hard to drink water during winter so having a fresh made juice is a great way to stay hydrated, especially when you are stuck indoors with the heaters on.

If you are feeling chilli then add some chillies to your juice. One of my favourites is cayenne peppers and they go great with oranges.
