3 - Green vegetable juice 🥒
Green vegetables are rich in magnesium, a mineral that smokers tend to lack. Like a super hero who stopped smoking, consuming these super greens helps you cleanse your body of the harmful effects of tobacco. For example, cucumber is a slimming ally. It helps you lose weight and cleanses your body of toxins. It helps your skin recover a radiant tone and gives you fresh breath. Remember how bad tobacco smells.
So here's how to prepare the super cucumber juice that will help you be healthy after you quit smoking.

One tablespoon of parsley
A glass of water
Best option : Put everything in a juicer (except the water).
If you don't have a juicer: put the apples, cucumber and parsley in a blender, then add the lemon juice!
4 - Kiwi and lemon smoothie 🥝
Kiwi and lemon are two fruits that are very rich in vitamin C. It has been proven that smokers have 10% less vitamin C than non-smokers. Tobacco causes a deficiency in vitamin C. In addition, kiwi has a laxative effect, which can help relieve constipation sometimes related to smoking cessation.
Here is a delicious smoothie that will allow you to replenish your vitamin C intake.
Ingredients for 2 people:
100g of white cheese
Preparation: Use a blender to mix the kiwis, white cheese and lemon juice. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare 💪
5 - ACE, the anti-smoking juice 🥕🍊
ACE is a fruit juice that mixes orange, carrot and lemon. The name of this juice comes from the vitamins it contains, namely vitamins A, C and E.
One of the best anti-tobacco juices 😉
The carrot helps to fight against skin ageing and allows it to recover. These properties are important for an ex-smoker, as we saw above with the ginger juice. Tobacco damages and dries out the skin.
Oranges are a powerful antioxidant that contain many vitamins and minerals. Smokers suffer from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, so it is important to replenish your supplies when you stop smoking. Orange juice also helps to fight against winter diseases 💪
Lemons, like carrots and oranges, are rich in vitamins and antioxidants. They also help to regulate weight, cleanse the body and improve digestion.
Ingredients for 1 person :
Preparation: Squeeze the orange and lemon. Get the juice from the carrots with a juice extractor. Mix it all together 😋
