Stewed Fruit: chop and boil 2 pears and 2 apples. Leave the skin on. Once cooked, drain water and mash. sprinkle a little cinnamon on top
Lemon water is just boiled water with 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice. It’s best to have this before eating anything.
If you don’t have a juicer, you might want to buy a fresh juice or substitute with a piece of fruit. You can experiment here so long as its green! Great combos are kale, cucumber and apple; spinach, mint and apple
1 bunch of watercress
1 litre of vegetable stock
Finely chop the onion and dice the potato and boil in the stock until cooked.
Wash the watercress and remove stems, chop finely.
Add the cress to the stock soup, turn the heat down and simmer until the cress is wilted.
Blend the soup, add a little salt and pepper and lemon juice. Voila!
