Juices are an amazing nutritional option for people who hate eating fruits and vegetables. There are few things I religiously do during my pregnancy – drinking herbal teas and healthy smoothies, making pregnancy-inspired nail art designs, consuming my prenatal meds, and visiting my OB-GYN and baby scan clinic to determine my baby’s health.
Here’s something else that I’ve started doing recently. It is to drink mint juice daily. Here’s why I do so.
To feel refreshed
There’s nothing more refreshing in the world than mint juice! When I drink mint juice, I feel energized and become ready to conquer the world.
To keep my body cool
I’ve started feeling hot because it’s gonna be summer in the UK pretty soon. Peterborough is already getting a little hot than before. So, yeah, mint juice makes my body feel cooler than ever.
To improve my digestion
Ever wondered why people chew mint leaves after having a hearty meal? Well, for good digestion! Mint juice has surely improved my bloating so if you’ve any digestive issues, don’t forget to add mint juice or tea into your pregnancy diet.
To have a minty breath
There’s a reason why all mouth fresheners have mint in them. Well, instead of a minty mouth freshener, I chose to drink mint juice to get the same benefit.
To relieve my anxiety
Mint juice has helped in calming my prenatal anxiety. When I drink mint juice, I feel more relaxed and happy.
That’s why I included mint juice in my diet. Let me share my mint juice recipe with all of you!
• Add 11/2 cup mint leaves (without stem) into the blender.
• Add 1 cup filtered water, 1 pinch salt and sugar into the juicer.
• Do add ½ tsp lemon juice for added flavour.
• Blend and enjoy!
