#1 Bye Bye Red Eye
The first juicing recipe that will help increase your energy levels is called Bye Bye Red Eye. This recipe incorporates a number of very common fresh fruits and vegetables.
One of them is the cauliflower. Bet, you didn’t know that you could make fresh juice out of it… 😛
Cauliflower contains an abundance of calcium and magnesium. Apart from giving you strong bones it also helps boost your energy levels by promoting sleep. Sleep is important for everyone and without the right amount of rest every night, you will definitely find it hard to keep going throughout the day.
In addition to that, lettuces like the romaine leaves used for this recipe has a sedative effect which means easier to drift to sleep. For some, getting an afternoon nap after taking this juice recipe will make it easier. The combination of the cauliflower and romaine obviously gives you more rest and hence the name “Bye Bye Red Eye”…

½ cup cauliflower
½ lemon, peeled
