Beet Juice Plus

Beetroot is a rich source of essential minerals and vitamins and is, therefore, a beneficial addition to your diet. They are a super nutrient dense food that are good for so many things including blood purification.

Beetroots are high in fiber, essential micronutrients like vitamins C and B9, and minerals like potassium, iron, and manganese, among others.

Beetroot also contains nitrates, which are converted to circulation-improving nitric oxide in the body. Additionally, beetroots contain antioxidant compounds such as betanin, among others, which provide a number of health benefits. Here is a handy juicing recipe using beets.

Ingredients:

  1. large beet, scrubbed, halved 4 cups baby spinach

½ Fuji apple, cored

Dash of Nutmeg or Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Add all ingredients to juicer alternating between the ingredients being sure to end with fleshy fruits. Pour into a glass and whisk in nutmeg or cinnamon.

Medical Medium’s 12 Reasons to Drink Celery Juice

I saw this great 12 Reason guide today for why to drink celery juice and thought it is a must share!

This comes right from Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium:

12 Reasons To Drink Celery Juice
12reasonstodrinkcj
1. Lowers Inflammation
Celery juice starves the unproductive bacteria and viruses that are behind inflammation.

2. Supports Weight Loss
Celery juice helps to clean up and detoxify the liver and a sluggish, toxic liver is behind mystery weight gain.

3. Aids Digestion
Celery juice restores hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach for better long-term digestion.

4. Reduces Bloating
Celery juice prompts the liver to increase bile production and strengthens the stomach’s hydrochloric acid production. Old undigested, rotting protein and rancid fats trapped at the bottom of the stomach and in the small intestinal tract can then be broken down, helping bloating.

5. Helps Eczema & Psoriasis
The undiscovered cluster salts in celery juice break down the cell membranes of the pathogens responsible for eczema, eventually killing and destroying them.

6. Fights Infections
Celery juice enhances your entire body’s immune system. White blood cells absorb the sodium cluster salts in celery juice through their cell structure and then use them as an offense mechanism, not just a defense mechanism.

7. Helps Prevent UTI’s
Celery juice is an antiseptic to streptococcus bacteria, which is the true unknown cause of Urinary Tract Infections.

8. Healing For Acne
Celery juice’s undiscovered sodium cluster salts are toxic to bacteria, including streptococcus in the liver and lymphatic system, which is the real cause of acne.

9. Prevents High Blood Pressure
Celery juice helps stabilize blood pressure by cleansing the liver of Liver Troublemakers (see Liver Rescue for info), which leads to healthier blood that can be easily pumped by the heart,

10. Helps Lower High Cholesterol
Celery juice helps cleanse and strengthen the liver, and breaks up undigested rotting proteins and fats that contribute to a sluggish liver, which is behind high cholesterol.

11. Helps Prevent Ulcers
Celery juice helps destroy the bacteria responsible for ulcers.

12. Protects Liver Health
Your liver’s individual immune system relies on the undiscovered types of sodium cluster salts inside of celery.

For more information on celery juice and how it can help you heal, refer to Anthony’s book “Liver Rescue”.

Juicing – Anything Goes!

When it comes to juicing or just getting good nutrients into your body, anything goes!

This morning I had my straight celery juice and then shortly after had this combo. How did I come up with it? I opened the fridge and voila… I picked from some things that were in there. Romaine Lettuce, 3 large pineapple spears, a piece of lemon I needed to use up, an orange, and then I grabbed a small sprig of mint from my indoor mini herb planters. I threw it in my juicer and it was delicious!!!

You really cannot go wrong. I often smile when I see the endless juicing books out there. Sure they are great for ideas and targeting health benefits but in all reality just take some things that are good for you and throw them in! Anything goes! Get creative.

This was my second round of juicing today… some gel from my filleted aloe leaf, strawberries, and apple. Once again it was yummy!

Recently I did a cooking demo at an Esthetics School and we were making Hemp milk. I accidently dropped in an extra date and more vanilla than ‘my recipe called for’. It was perfect. I told the class that it does not matter… throw in more, less, other things, change it up…. anything goes. Adapt and adjust as you go along. It’s all good.

Most of all have fun with adding in more nutrients and en-JOY! #nutritionIStheMission

On a side note, many of you have asked me about the best juicer. While there are many juicers out there and I have tried several smaller ones that I have picked up at thrift stores, I was lucky enough to get one of these Hamilton Beach 800 watt ones at a thrift store brand new. I loved it so much that I just yesterday, bought a second one from Lowes to have at my beach house where I work. I love this juicer. It’s easy to clean, has an amazing yield and saves me so much time. I really think it’s the best value for a mid-range juicer.
