A juicer is not just a kitchen appliance. Think of it as a food pharmacy to optimal health and vitality!
Juicing removes the fiber from the produce, and all the antioxidants are actually in the juice, not the pulp.
Because the fruits and vegetables are raw, the enzymes are intact, and they’ll give you an instant energy and health boost!
This juice is a nutrient powerhouse, so at the first sign of ill health, reach for your vegetable crisper instead of the medicine cabinet!
Go for this medley:
- 2 beets
The red juice is a great blood builder, making you glow from the inside; it has an earthy-sweet taste.
- 2 carrots
High in beta-carotene, which the body uses to convert to vitamin A, and which helps to rid the body of toxins.
- 1 orange
Vitamin C in oranges is a highly effective antioxidant that assists healing and helps to fight infection. Your body cannot actually store Vitamin C, so it’s important to continually replenish its supply.
- 1 apple
The best apples for juicing are Golden Delicious, Fuji, or Pink Lady; keep tart Granny Smiths for cooking.
- 1 stick of celery
Has almost no calories and is like a shot of electrolyte water.
- 2 leaves bok choy
Cancer-fighting, mild in flavor, and full of powerful antioxidants and beta-carotene.
- 1/2 inch ginger root
Has amazing medicinal properties and also increases blood flow, promotes sweating, and relaxes blood vessels! Go easy on the amount, as it can overpower a juice.
This combination is energy-lifting, cleansing, and immune-boosting. Remember that with juicing, experimentation is half the fun – and definitely more fun than a visit to the doctor!
