3 Easy Asparagus Juice Recipes

3 Easy Asparagus Juice Recipes

Asparagus is highly nutritious and has excellent health benefits. Rich in folic acid, potassium, niacin, phosphorus, vitamin A, C and K asparagus is packed with goodness, and being a detoxifying food asparagus helps remove waste material from the body (you may have noticed the smelly urine it causes). Asparagus is renowned for its anti cancer properties and its beneficial effect on the liver, kidneys and bowel. Asparagus also helps relieve arthritis and rheumatism and strengthen a weak heart. Asparagus juice is traditionally used to treat/relieve symptoms associated with anemia, bowel, kidney and eye problems, as well as various cancers and skin problems.
Try out some of these powerful recipes with asparagus:Asparagus Carrot Juice:

  • 5 asparagus spears
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 tomatoes

 

Asparagus Celery Juice:

  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 large carrots
  • 4 asparagus spears

Green asparagus: Asparagus come in four different varieties with green asparagus being the most common. Bright colored, sweet and tender, green asparagus are quick and easy to prepare with absolutely no need for peeling both for juicing and cooking.

Violet/purple asparagus: Rarely found in shops, and is most commonly found in Italy and England. Have a thick stalk.
White asparagus: Loved by Europeans for their sweet and delicate flavor. They are grown under black plastic igloos to prevent them from turning green and are often used in gourmet cooking.

Wild asparagus: Also called Ornithogalum pyrenaicum, it is very hard to come across, but you may find them at the markets in Italy and the South of France.

Caution: Don’t Ignore Colon While Juicing

Caution: Don’t Ignore Colon While Juicing

 

Caution: Don’t Ignore Colon While Juicing

During a juice fast, since there is no solid food ingested, the bowel does not have any fiber to work against; therefore, the bowels stop moving.  When the bowels don’t move and a person keeps juicing, there are many toxins that are released into the bloodstream, and they can’t get out of the body. This feels absolutely terrible!  Next, instead of being released from the body, many of them can be reabsorbed back into the tissues.   This can be completely avoided simply by cleaning the intestines with one of the formulas listed below.

 

 

Don’t underestimate the importance of bowel health.  The bowels can remove three or more pounds of toxins per day – this is a very important elimination organ! We need the bowels to move, so that the toxins can be released from the body. These recommendations are very important.

 

Herbal Remedies for Activating and Healing the Digestive Tract during a Juice Cleanse 

 

Herbal Laxative

 

During each day of the juice fast, take an herbal laxative at night, and also first thing in the morning if needed. Herbal formulas work well to keep the bowel moving – I use the Vibrant Colon Formula for this. For very constipated individuals who usually only have a bowel movement every few days or less, I use an extra strength formula called the Colon Starter Plus. If you take lots of strong cayenne and/or juice a garlic clove with one or more of your vegetable juices, you might not need either of these formulas.  Anyone who has active colitis or a history of colitis should not take any laxative formulas, cayenne or garlic.

 

 

Herbal Bowel Detoxifiers 

Take an herbal formula that absorbs and draws toxins out of the bowel.  These formulas usually contain charcoal, bentonite clay, and sometimes slippery elm and other herbs. I use the Colon Detox Caps or the Colon Soothe Formula for this and they work very well. They contain mucilaginous herbs such as slippery elm to protect and soothe the colon, and are much gentler than psyllium husks. Plain psyllium husks, even if combined with bentonite and charcoal, can be very abrasive and cause severe diarrhea in those who are sensitive. I’ve seen psyllium husks cause severe intestinal inflammation and bleeding in those with sensitive colons, so it’s VERY important to choose well balanced gentle intestinal formulas containing mucilaginous herbs such as the ones listed above.
*I cannot guarantee the safety or effectiveness of herbal products that are not mentioned on this website. When people attempt herbal cleanses from a drug store or discount herb shop using similar formulas, the results are usually weaker, or can even cause unpleasant symptoms. Many years of research and clinical experience go into this program and my herbal products, both of which have been based on real patient results, not theories.

 

Adequate Hydration 

 

 

Make sure to drink at least a gallon of fluid every day. This can include herbal teas and water and not just juice. The colon needs around two quarts a day to function properly – it needs more when taking herbs or doing other sorts of natural healing methods. A gallon of fluids per day will give the kidneys ample opportunity to eliminate the toxins that are coming loose and going into the bloodstream and make the cleanse comfortable. The kidneys filter toxins out of the bloodstream and naturally release them into the urine.

Enemas 
Many people do an enema once or twice a day. Except in cases of severe disease, this is usually not needed as long as the above-mentioned herbal intestinal cleansing formulas are being used.

 

Other “Must-Have” Herbs That Maximize Juice Fasting Benefits: 

 

1) Cayenne – cayenne gives energy and helps dissolve mucous, stops bleeding in the intestines, hemorrhaging of the uterus, and bleeding in other organs. It dissolves blood clots, and increases circulation to the head, making it invaluable for use in strokes and senility such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Start with 1/8 tsp of 150,000 Heat Units Cayenne once a day. Very gradually work up to one tsp three times per day. For Cayenne Tincture, start with five to ten drops, and work up to one dropper full (30-35 drops) three times per day

 


If you can handle it, take even more – but do it slowly and gradually. The body does gradually adapt and is able to handle larger doses over time. For weaker cayenne, it’s necessary to take much more to get the same effect. Powdered encapsulated cayenne that has had the “heat” removed from it is about the weakest cayenne available and doesn’t do much.  Don’t expect it heal anything serious. The hotter the cayenne, the more it heals. Take strong cayenne with juice – don’t take it on an empty stomach or you will be sorry – intense intestinal cramping can result from doing this.

2) Algae – Spirulina, Chlorella, blue green algae, and Dunaliella (red algae) are the four major edible kinds of algae. People have been consuming certain types of algae as food for thousands of years.  Algae have been found to contain all of the essential amino acids. They are a complete protein source second to none. The protein content of algae ranges from 60-70% with a very high protein utilization factor. This means that the body is easily able to absorb and use the protein contained in algae.
Algae usually come in a powder form, or in tablets or capsules. Begin with 1/2 tsp of the powdered algae per day and increase to whatever dose feels right. Otherwise, follow directions on the supplement bottle.

For people who don’t like the taste of the powder or liquid, capsules are the next best way to take algae. The least desirable method is tablets since they are highly compressed, making them more difficult to digest and absorb. The Essential Nutrients contains most of the supplements mentioned in this article, combined together into a convenient formula that saves a lot of time and makes juice fasting much easier and even fun.

3) Nutritional yeast – Saccharomyces cerevisiae – yeast is very high in B vitamins including B12. The kind I like is Red Star T6635 #12 large flake. I’ve seen it sold in bulk at the health food store as well as in the supplement section.  People who have gout shouldn’t not take yeast since the high protein content may aggravate gout.

Start with 1 TBS per day and increase to 2 or more TBS per day if that feels right.  Since nutritional yeast is so high in B vitamins, and the nervous system requires so much of them to function properly, this makes an excellent food for the brain, peripheral nerves, and spinal cord. Those with nervous system disorders such as myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, premature senility, all types of dementia, schizophrenia, Tourette’s syndrome, and other neurologic diseases may want to increase their dose as needed.  People with milder neurologic problems such as anxiety, depression, mental and emotional disorders will benefit, too.  This yeast is also contained in the Earth’s Nutrition Formula. Essential Nutrients is very similar but is yeast free and designed to accommodate those with Candida and yeast problems.

4) Wheatgrass powder, capsules or tablets.  Contained in Essential Nutrients

5) Barley Grass powder, capsules or tablets.  Contained in Essential Nutrients

6) Herbal teas – The herbal tea I use the most for this purpose is Detox Chai Spice since it activates all the organs at once and greatly assists in removing toxins from the body. If there is a history of kidney stones, the K/B Herbal Tea is an excellent choice that assists in cleansing stone-causing residues from the urinary tract. Any herbal tea from Dr Fosters Essentials is fine to drink during a juice fast. Side Note: there are some herbal teas out there that are marketed for dieting and weight loss that contain loads of caffeine and other stimulants.(e.g. teas such as green tea, ma huang or ephedra). It’s not wise to start drinking caffeinated beverages during a juice fast if you have not already been consuming them beforehand, or you could give yourself heart palpitations. Although sometimes green tea does not contain much caffeine, there are many types that contain just as much caffeine as regular black tea.  People should not drink teas from these three stimulating herbs except in the following two cases:

  • Severe asthma, in which case these stimulant teas may provide needed symptom relief in an acute situation.
  • People who are already drinking coffee every day who need to stop coffee during their juice fast.  People who are regular coffee drinkers who suddenly stop drinking it can get withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, depression, low blood pressure and possibly fainting.  So, if coffee is normally consumed on a regular basis, switching over to caffeinated green tea during a juice cleanse can help avoid caffeine withdrawal symptoms.

 

To summarize: if you’re drinking coffee, switch to green tea during a juice fast. If you’re not drinking coffee or green tea, don’t start.

 

7) Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (Braggs and Spectrum are good brands usually found in health food stores).

 

 

Apple cider vinegar is especially good for arthritis – it helps to wash and dissolve calcium deposits from joints and muscles and balances body ph.  Start with one Tablespoon three times per day and increase to as much as you feel you need.

A great apple cider vinegar formula to take at this time is Germ Blaster. The cayenne, ginger, garlic and onion in this formula greatly stimulate the circulation all over the entire body.  These herbs also kill many germs and parasites, making this a great formula to use to speed up recovery from a cold, flu, bronchitis, or any other type of infection. The horseradish content is excellent for clearing out sinuses. The cayenne, garlic and ginger should not be taken by those who have acute or chronic diarrhea since they can activate the intestines.  For those who are usually constipated, it’s wonderful.

Most people don’t realize that a juice fast can provide even more energy than they normally have.  I’ve also put people who were bedridden with bodies full of cancer on a juice fast and it helped them tremendously, and got many of them out of bed. With the right modifications, most people can safely do a juice fast. If it is done correctly, with attention to the colon, a juice fast can be life-saving.

How Juicing Can Improve Your Eyesight Naturally

 

Modern life has many of us concentrating on various types of electronic screens for large parts of the day. This is a very recent development in human history and there is ample evidence that our eyes are having difficulty adapting to the daily demands we put them under.

Eyestrain, dry and irritated eyes, difficulty making out fine detail, and deteriorating vision are all common eyesight problems that are on the increase in recent decades.

While taking regular breaks from computer monitors and reducing the amount of time we spend staring at the illuminated screens is important, diet and juicing, may be able to help heal your eyes.

Let’s look at how regular juicing can play a part in improving your eyesight naturally and the best types of fruits and vegetables to juice for better vision. Also ahead is a potent juicing recipe designed to give your eyes what they need to perform at their best!

 

The Importance of Xanthophylls

Juicing fresh fruit and vegetables provides a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for better eyesight. Pro-vitamin A carotenoids like alpha and beta-carotene are very important for your eyes, as is antioxidant vitamin C and minerals like zinc.

While deficiencies in these nutrients do happen, and many of us could use more of them for optimal eye health, a far more likely issue with vision problems is a lack of xanthophylls.

Xanthophylls are class of carotenoid antioxidants, most commonly found in fruits and vegetables with yellow, orange and red colors, or in leafy greens where the green chlorophyll dominates. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the best known xanthophylls and the most important for your eyes.

Zeaxanthin and lutein are highly concentrated in the macula area of your eye that is responsible for perceiving fine details on a page or screen. They actually give your macula its distinctive yellow color and are vital for protecting it from UV and high-intensity blue light.

Blue light is a difficult band of the color spectrum for your eyes to deal with and regular overexposure is often associated with serious eye conditions like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (ARMD).

 


Studies suggest that a diet high in lutein and zeaxanthin can reduce your risk of developing ARMD. Given that this eye disease is the biggest cause of blindness in elderly people in the USA and is expected to affect around 3 million Americans by 2020, these antioxidants are worth getting more of if you value your vision as you get older.

Even for people already with macular degeneration, increasing xanthophyll intake may help repair the damage. Research published in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science found that supplementing with lutein led to measurable improvements in vision and macula pigment density. The scientists said, ‘lutein may play an important role in eye health as a useful bioactive agent in reducing the risk of ARMD’.

Another study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that lutein supplementation for people who worked in front of computer screens all day improves visual function, contrast sensitivity and ‘lutein may have beneficial effects on the visual performance’. Lutein and zeaxanthin are also believed to help protect your eyes from other eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma as well.

So how do you increase your intake of lutein and the even harder to get zeaxanthin? If you’re already noticing eye problems like regular eyestrain and difficulty concentrating on the screen, a high zeaxanthin and lutein supplement derived from natural sources like marigolds can often help.

From a dietary perspective there are certain fruits and vegetables that contain lutein and zeaxanthin and are very beneficial to juice if you value your vision. Here’s five of the best.

 

5 High-Lutein and Zeaxanthin Fruits and Vegetables for Juicing

1. Kale

Dark green leafy vegetables are often considered a good source of lutein and kale is one of the most concentrated. Extremely high in vitamins, minerals and many other antioxidants to protect your eyes from free radical damage, raw kale is an excellent vegetable to juice for better vision and better health in general.

2. Orange Bell Peppers

These might seem like an unusual vegetable to juice, but they’re actually quite tasty. Bell peppers, and particularly the orange colored ones, are a great source of zeaxanthin for juicing. Red and yellow peppers should also be good if you can’t find orange, but green bell peppers aren’t considered useful for xanthophylls.

3. Celery

The stalks and particularly the leaves of celery are a good source of lutein for your eyes. Celery’s cleansing and detoxifying properties also benefit your kidneys. Kidney health is closely related to eye health in Chinese traditional medicine so definitely worth including in your juice.

4. Beets with the Beet Greens

 


Deep red beet juice is full of nutrients that benefit your liver, another vital organ associated with eye health. Many important bodily function suffer when your liver is under strain so beets are a great vegetable to add to many different juicing recipes.

Interestingly, beet greens and stalks are considered an excellent source of lutein and zeaxanthin so are well worth including in juices for improving your vision.

5. Kiwifruit

Recent testing has shown kiwifruit to be surprisingly high in lutein for better eyes. Given that they are also a great source of vitamin C which is needed for protecting your vision, kiwifruit is definitely deserves its place in the recipe ahead. It helps that kiwi juice tastes great as well.

 

“Vision Enhancer” Juice Recipe 

This juicing recipe is designed specifically to provide a high level of lutein and zeaxanthin as well as other nutrients for healthy eyes. It’s good to drink in the morning if you have a long day in front of the computer screen ahead.

While the kale, orange bell pepper and celery aren’t exactly sweet, they’re far from unpleasant and the natural sugars of the beet and kiwifruit soften out the flavor. If you want a little extra sweetness than add an extra kiwifruit or a carrot, also good for your eyes with their pro-vitamin A beta-carotene.

 


Ingredients

  • 2 branches of kale.
  • 1 orange Bell pepper.
  • 2 stalks of celery.
  • 1 beet with the greens.
  • 3 kiwifruit.

(Makes 2 servings)

Preparation

  • Don’t worry about deseeding the bell pepper or skinning the kiwifruit. Just wash your produce well in warm water and a splash of apple cider vinegar to clean it and minimize sprays if it’s not organic.
  • Once its ready feed it steadily through the juicing shoot, finishing with the celery to push as much of the juice through your juicer as possible.
  • Stir up the multicolored juice so it’s well blended and pour it into glasses with a couple of ice cubes. Drink immediately for the most antioxidants and eye benefits.

 

Extra Tips for Healthy Eyes

 


Juicing recipes like this are a great way to get more lutein, zeaxanthin and other eye nutrients into your diet for healthy vision. Also try and eat more yellow, red and orange fruits and vegetables along with more leafy greens to strengthen up your antioxidant defenses.

It’s beneficial to have some healthy fats around the same time as you have your juice since xanthophylls and other antioxidants like alpha and beta-carotene are fat-soluble. This means they require some fatty acids to be present for optimal absorption.

I take a teaspoon of orange flavored cod liver oil around the same time as I drink my juice for this purpose. It’s also extremely high in vitamin A, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, all beneficial for your vision and particularly helpful against dry eye conditions.

Finally, make sure you give yourself more breaks when you’re working in front of computer screens. Get away from the monitor at least every hour, preferably twice as often and look at something in the distance for a while or just shut your eyes for five minutes and let them relax.

I think most people would agree that their eyes are vitally important. Daily juicing should really help improve your eyesight over time, but regular breaks are a good start to make today.

Benefits of Juicing Broccoli with Joe Cross

Benefits of Juicing Broccoli with Joe Cross

 

Hey! If you are anything like me, sometimes in the afternoon you’re going to run out of energy. Instead of reaching for that snack—that cookie, that processed something or other—how about reaching for a juice?

How about an “oh, sweet broccoli” juice?

Joe Cross here from the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and you might know me from RebootWithJoe.com.

Today I am going to make up a juice with broccoli. Yes, broccoli. It’s called an “oh, sweet broccoli” juice. You might say – broccoli, I don’t kind of imagine juicing that. How can that taste good? Well, I am going to use the broccoli as the bulk of this juice.

But I am going to add in some cucumber, some carrot, and a couple of peeled oranges. That’s going to sweeten up and give it a lot of body.

But broccoli is one of my champion veggies. It is an absolute winner when it comes to health. How about this? It reduces heart disease. It can reduce cholesterol. Its cancer preventing. It’s high in anti-oxidants, and also for those of you with allergies out there, this is a real winner. Getting some broccoli juice can really help those allergies coming on and really dulls them down which is what we all need if we get the sneezes.

So to kick off the juicing today, I have got a Sage juicer here from my great friends at Lakeland. Now a juicer is very different from a blender. A juicer, what we do, is we put the produce in the chute, and we separate out. We take the cellulose of the plant, we put that to one side, and we extract out all the liquid sunshine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cucumber
  • Bunch Broccoli
  • 1 Carrot
  • 2 X Oranges (peeled)

If we just take a look at that you can see that we’ve actually got a nice, green color.

It’s a little bit dark because of our broccoli which is perfect, and if we pour it out, you can see that lovely color that you may not look at that and think, oh, that’s enticing. But let me tell you this juice is an absolute winner. It’s actually not as sweet as you would think because the broccoli really brings it down, but it’s one of those juices, particularly in winter. In the afternoon if you just want to get some energy and lift up and get a big burst, this juice is an absolute champion.

Now, I also want to talk a little bit about the pulp because I get a lot of people ask me, Joe, we’re juicing out all this energy from the plants, but what do we do with the pulp?

What do we do with the cellulose, the structure that was holding the plant together? Well, there’s a bunch of things you can do with it. If you want to give it to your garden, you can do that. It’s fantastic for compost.

Or if you want to put it on like veggie burgers. You can make a broth with it. You can make muffins with it. There’s so many things you can do, and if you’re not ready to do it right now, you can put it in a re-sealable bag, put it in the freezer, and store it up.

7 Things to Do with Beet Greens

7 Things to Do with Beet Greens

 

7 Things to Do with Beet Greens

 

Beet greens are the leaves and stalks attached to beetroots. Have you ever eaten them? In case you haven’t, they’re edible, delicious and nutritious!

Because beetroots are mostly sold in the supermarket without their leaves attached, many don’t know that these gorgeous leaves can be eaten and are highly nutritious (since they’re greens!). You are most likely to find beet greens (attached to their beets) at organic grocery stores and farmer’s markets. And it’s also an economical way to get some greens (basically they’re ‘free’ when you buy the beets).
About a month ago, I found myself inundated with beet leaves (and beets). I couldn’t resist buying them at the organic store where I shop. They looked so beautiful and fresh – both the beets and the leaves, so I bought a bunch. Then my parents popped by on the weekend and brought me a large bunch from their home garden. (By the way, their home garden is their whole back yard!)
Since beetroot leaves don’t keep fresh for too long after harvesting (up to a week or so), I needed to make something quick smart so I would not waste these gorgeous, luscious leaves. Plus I needed more room in my refrigerator. This got me thinking of different ways to cook up beet leaves. I came up with 7:

 

  • use it in a curry with the beets
  • add it to a frittata, like you would silver beet
  • use it instead of spinach in a spinach and feta pie
  • juice them (younger beet leaves are best because of lower oxalic acid than older leaves)
  • eat in a salad (again, younger beet leaves are best)
  • add it to soups, like you would spinach, kale or silver beet
  • just sauté them with some garlic and herbs to have as a side, or try variation I came up with below

Sautéed beet leaves with coconut milk & capers


Serves ~ 3 people, as a side

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small brown onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 5 cups (~500g) shredded beet leaves & chopped stems
  • 2 tbsp salt-crusted capers
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • sea salt to taste
  • squeeze of lemon

In a wide and deep fry pan, heat oil and sauté onion until translucent. Add garlic and sauté briefly before adding the beet leaves. Stir continually.
Once the leaves have wilted add the capers and coconut milk. Sauté for a couple more minutes, then turn off stove. Season and squeeze over some lemon juice.
(Note: the dish is not meant to be saucy — the milk evaporates off. But if you would like it to be, just add more coconut milk.)
Serve as you would side of greens — I ate mine with pan-fried fish on one occasion, and with some rice and dhal on another.
Or you can make these yummy juices with your beet greens…

How to Drink the Rainbow to Get the Nutrients You Need

“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food” – Hippocrates

Hippocrates claimed:  that what you eat becomes your body and what you drink becomes your blood; that your food is your medicine.

 

The best way to make sure you’re getting the vitamins and minerals you need is by drinking the rainbow.  Fruits and vegetables come in a rainbow of colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet – and it’s easy to get optimum nutrients from the food you eat by including one or more foods in each color every day.  Here are examples of places where you can get all the colors of the rainbow:

 

Red:  Beets, cherries, cranberries, pink grapefruit, pomegranates, raspberries, red cabbage, red grapes, red peppers, red potatoes, rhubarb, strawberries, tomatoes, watermelon

Orange:  Apricots, cantaloupe, carrots, mangoes, nectarines, orange peppers, papayas, persimmons, pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes

Yellow:  Citrus fruit, corn, grapefruit, peaches, pears, pineapple, rutabaga, yellow peppers, yellow summer squash, yellow tomatoes, yellow watermelon

Green:  Asparagus, avocados, beets greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, cucumbers, green beans, green cabbage, green grapes, green peppers, honeydew melon, kale, kiwi, limes, mustard greens, peas, spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens, zucchini

Blue:  Blueberries, concord grapes

Indigo:  Blackberries, dates, elderberries, figs, plums, prunes, raisins

Violet:  Eggplant, plums, purple grapes

White:  Bananas, cauliflower, garlic, ginger, jicama, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, potatoes, turnips

 

If you’re finding it hard to cut out ‘bad’ foods, try snacking on fresh fruits and veggies (or drinks made from them) and nuts and seeds.  Using fresh, organic vegetables and fruits in juices and smoothies helps to increase the number of servings of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet.

Raw Enzyme Salad with Turnip

Raw Enzyme Salad with Turnip

Raw foods contain enzymes that aid in their digestion and bring life to the body. The fiber helps to scrub our systems and feel good inside and out.

Here’s one of my favorite raw salads, which actually acts more like a slaw. It’s simple, easy to make and taste delicious! Best of all, it’s loaded with enzymes.

 

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 small red cabbage
  • 1 medium white turnip
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • bunch of parsley

 

Dressing Ingredients:

 

  • 1/2 c. raw organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c. raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TB Dijon mustard
  • 1 TB raw honey

 

Optional enzyme enhancer ingredients:

 

  • Organic sprouts
  • Avocado
  • Soaked seeds

 

Directions:
Wash all veggies. Shredded or finely chop your red cabbage and place in large bowl.

Shred your turnip, carrots and zucchinis and add to large bowl.

Mince your parsley (1/3 cup) and onion (1/4 cup) and add to large bowl.

In separate container mix your dressing ingredients except your olive oil. Once blended, slowly add your olive oil to create a wonderfully, blended dressing. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

Add your dressing to your slaw and let sit for thirty minutes.

Serves six.

 

ENJOY!

The Best Fall Vegetable and Fruit Combinations for Juicing

The Best Fall Vegetable and Fruit Combinations for Juicing

Time to start using up our favorite seasonal ingredients in our juices (hooray!)

 

We’re saying goodbye to the freshest berries, mangos, melons, and greens like spinach as summer fades, but fall ushers the prime season for some of our other favorite ingredients. Some of the best-tasting produce from fall, that’s simple to add to your juicing routine? Apples (apple-picking season!), beets, Swiss chard, celery root, pears, and garlic. And obviously, the shining star of the juice world: kale. That’s right, your all-star ingredient for juicing (and, you know, eating) is in its peak season because kale turns sweeter in cold weather. That’s why mid-fall through spring is the optimal time to be eating, and drinking kale in everything. (That’s right, pumpkin, you’ve met your match).

You’re probably using many of these ingredients in your juices already, but now’s the time to hit up the farmers’ market for the freshest picks of the crop (and organic ones, obviously). Now, you can update some of your go-to juice recipes with the season’s best ingredients. Other seasonal ingredients you can easily add to your juices this season? Says Joanna Chodorowska, a personal and sports nutrition coach, garlic is the perfect addition for a bit of immune-boosting kick. (After all, winter cold season isn’t too far away.) “I usually use only one clove, but two if I feel a cold brewing,” she says. “[It] usually knocks out anything I have!” She adds celery to her “ultimate” juice recipe if she wants some hydration (particularly good in the summer), and a handful of cranberries if she feels like switching up her juices.

 

Thanks to some all-star juicers, we’ve rounded up some new and improved juice recipes that are perfect for fall.

 

Beets

¼ beet + 3-4 leaves kale (or Swiss chard) + 2 apples + 2 stalks celery + 1 cucumber + juice from 1 lemon = The Beet Zinger Juice Recipe
1 beet + 2 kale stalks + 1 apple + 1 handful of strawberries = Raw Beet Juice Recipe

 

Pears

1 pear + 1 tangerine + 1 lemon + ½ piece ginger root + pinch of cayenne (option) = Ginger Pear Juice Recipe 

Apples

1 apple + 2 cups baby carrots + 1 small piece ginger + 1-2 cups water = Apple Ginger Juice Recipe
1 Granny Smith apple + 1 cup spinach + ½ head romaine +1 cup cucumber + 1/2 lemon = Lemon Greens Juice Recipe

 

Kale


3-4 leaves kale (or Swiss chard) + 1 beet with greens + 1 apple (Gala or Granny Smith) + 1 orange + ½ lemon + 1 inch ginger root = Ultimate Juice Recipe

Produce Juicing Guide – Joe Cross

Here is an informative video from Joe Cross of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead Fame

joe1

I am going to be talking to you about taking the next step, so you bought your juicer, but what on earth do you put through it.

Today, I am going to be demystifying the juicer, give you a guide to the different produce you should be putting through it and how best to prep them, starting with our leafy greens such as kale or Tuscan cabbage as us Aussie’s like to call it; spinach, collard greens.

 


It’s important to remember to wash them thoroughly to remove any remaining grit or dirt that can be found on the leaves. When the leaves go through the juicer they are best followed by harder fruits or vegetables like apples that ensure that all the greens get fully juiced.

Now, an essential tip to remember is to thoroughly wash earth and root vegetables before putting them through the juicer. For example, carrots and sweet potatoes. Oh, and you must remember, peel your beets before juicing them. This will avoid that earthy taste that many people complain about after juicing and unpeeled beet.

Now, for lemons and limes, depends on what you like. Personally, I like to leave the peel on, but it does create a little bit of a bitter flavour. So if you peel your lemons and limes, remember to keep as much of this white pith on as possible as it contains nutrients that can help your body absorb amazing antioxidants found in citrus fruits.

So with other fruits and vegetables, with skins that we don’t traditionally eat such as pineapple, melon, or kiwi, it’s best to use your common sense and remove them before juicing.

 


Now with larger items, cut them into smaller pieces to fit through your juicer chute.
Here are my real don’ts, avocados and bananas. Don’t juice them. Save them for blending.

There are also some vegetables I have never juiced and probably never will such as eggplant.
Oh, and you’re talking about onions, go easy on them. It truly is an acquired taste if you juice them and also if you’re going to do it, you might need some goggles.
How about spices? Well things like Chinese five and cinnamon should not go through your juicer. Just sprinkle them onto your juice once it’s poured in the glass.
So, that’s a wrap on my handy hints and tips on what to put through your juicer. From here, there’s only one way, onwards and upwards, best of luck and juice on.
