Eating vegetables in their whole form is so good for us. Chewing food gets our digestive juices flowing and gives our metabolism a kick up the backside. But if you, like me, have days where you’re on the run and need an intake of veggies pronto, your body will still thank you for a freshly made juice, and let’s face it, now is the time to start some good habits for the year ahead.

These juices do not replace meals; rather, they are for subsidising veggie-poor parts of the day. Ensure you make your juice look good and taste great, otherwise this is a habit that’ll get dropped before the month is out.
