hey all you awesome semi-colons!
Are you prepared to Rock Your World with your new juicers???
First off I want to say how happy happy happy I am that you all are doing this! You won't regret it. You body will thank you. Juicing veggies helps to keep your body alkaline which in turn helps to either heal your cancer or keep from returning. Remember though, there are never any guarantees for any of us. We just do our best.
Secondly, I cannot stress enough how important it is to use ORGANIC produce. Not only is it free from toxic chemicals, but tests show that organic produce has a higher nutritional output than conventionally grown produce. It has something to do with the soil being depleted of nutrients and minerals when chemicals are used. So if you are going to expend this energy with juicing, then please buy ORGANIC.
Here is my everyday recipe:
3-4 carrots (depending on size)
Ok, I want to underscore how important GREENS are in this equation. It's the greens that really help in the alkalizing department. But, I warn you to start with small amounts and build up your tolerance. I happen to think that my juice is the Nectar of the Gods. My kids call it Swamp Water.
Using carrot and apples as the foundation you can experiment with beets, cabbage, garlic, cucumbers, lemons, spinach.
I've never tried this one but it sure sounds good:
1 med orange, peeled
here's one called "The Colon Cleanser":
2 org Granny Smith, McIntosh, or Golden Delicious
The BEST lemonade is just apples and lemons. Your kids will love it!
scouty has different recipes that she used.
I have never tried cabbage, but I know it was part of her protocol.
I chose the veggies specifically b/c of their digestive properties.....especially the parsley and ginger. Beets are good for liver cleanse but they really pack a punch!
Ihope this helps to get you started.
The book I have is The Juice LAdy's Guide To Juicing For Health by Cherie Calbom, MS
Please let me know what you end up making and what you like (and don't like).
Hang in there and remember to adjust to your taste buds....they may need some time if you are not used to veggies.
peace, emily who has a huge smile on her face!!!
