As the warmer weather approaches, you might be paying a little more attention to your physique. If you're like me, you could be a tad nervous about trying on your cute summer shorts after hanging out in comfy yoga pants all winter long!

My simple solution? Green juice!

But this isn’t any ordinary green juice, my health-seeking friends! I designed this recipe as a way to get optimal nutrients while also supporting weight loss.

My two favorite “waist whittling” ingredients are jalapeños and bok choy. Jalapeños pack a powerful nutritional punch, with notable amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A. These little peppers derive their heat from a natural plant compound called capsaicin, which offers powerful health benefits such as reducing inflammation and decreasing hard-to-lose belly fat. And because bok choy is loaded with fiber, essential nutrients and is so low in calories, it's a perfect natural diet aid when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off!

Waist-Whittling Spicy Green Juice

Serves 4 and yields 32 ounces of juice.

Ingredients

  • 2 organic cucumbers
  • 1 head organic celery
  • 1/2 jalapeño
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 3 small organic apples
  • 1 inch of ginger root
  • 1 head organic baby bok choy

Directions

Run all ingredients through a juicer and enjoy.
