Healthy New Year

After any over indulgences during the festive season, you might be looking for a lighter way to start your new year.

The Old Ruts in Merton Park is a rugby, cricket and football club with a great social club and bar.  The club offers ‘social member’ membership for only £50 if you want to have a look and see what it’s like.  Children are very welcome and can join in any of the sports – have a look at their website to find out more

Juicing remains popular and is an easy way to get some much needed fruit and vegetables into our bodies. After a hunt around for some tasty combinations, we found a couple which we’ve included below – if you try them or have an alternative, please share them with us.

Appleberry Lush

1 medium apple

7 medium carrots

1 cup of strawberries

Put them all in a juicer, shake or stir and enjoy….

Beginner Green

3 medium green apples

4 large celery stalks

¼ thumb ginger root

½ lemon (with rind)

1 large orange (peeled)

5 handfuls of spinach

This is recommended for beginners who are looking for a great tasting green juice – it’s sweet and has a citrus flavour.
