As a native Californian, I grew up on juices—my childhood days were filled with fresh-squeezed pear and apple juices, and in more recent years, I’ve grown to love veggie juices. When I met my Ladies of London cast mate Julie Montagu, I found another juice lover—and rather than meeting for a coffee catchup or a cocktail gossip, we would meet over juices. As our relationship grew, and as we were going to all our local restaurants for juices, I quickly realised we needed a juicer at Bumpkin—as it made sense to meet at my own restaurant than to go somewhere else! Julie, being a wellness warrior and healthy food guru, shared her recipe for a veggie juice with me—so we now serve Julie’s Lean Mean Green Machine at all of our Bumpkins. It is easy to make at home, jam-packed full of vitamins, and incredibly alkalising.
Marissa Hermer, our guest editor for July and star of Bravo TV’s Ladies of London, is also a restauranteur. She and her husband Matt Hermer own Bumpkin, a chain of restaurants in the United Kingdom. This week, Marissa shares the restaurant’s ultra healthy (and delish) green juice recipe with us.
