Have you ever had a “food baby?”
If you’ve ever experienced this, then you know how uncomfortable it gets.
Your jeans start to feel tighter, you have excess gas and the constant rumbling around in your stomach.
It happens, especially around the holidays. Just think about your last Thanksgiving dinner!
Whenever you’re feeling bloated and feel the need to calming your digestive tract and kickstart a quick detox, make the following purple cabbage juice. It will do wonders for your body.
How To Make Purple Cabbage Juice
- 2 cups of purple cabbage
- 3 ribs of celery
- ½ small lemon with the rind (the white part inside the lemon)
- ½ green apple (it’s for taste)
- Wash and chop ingredients and then process them with a juice (alternative: Use a blender and then strain the liquid to drink).
