Juicing Recipes and Health Benefits: Day 1
Tomorrow is Day 1 of our Juicing Cleanse – a great way to incorporate veggies that you don’t normally enjoy eating. (Kale for me and Cauliflower for Katie.)
Our recipe for tomorrow morning and the benefits of each ingredient:
Dandelion greens – they purify the blood, settle digestion, high in fiber & provide 535% of the recommended daily value of vitamin K.
Celery – easy to digest and tolerate, high in potassium, and the high water content in celery makes it ideal for vegetable juicing.
Beets and beet greens – good for liver detox, contains notable amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus, vitamins A, B-complex and C. (Diabetics should use beets carefully because they are high in sugar content.)
Cabbage– excellent for the health of the bacteria in your gut. It is also good for ulcer repair as it is a huge source of vitamin U.
Carrots – High in vitamin A and loaded with beta carotene (a potent antioxidant). Carrots are also noted for the role they play in heart disease and stroke prevention, for maintaining youthful skin, and for colon cleansing and toxin flushing.
And lime to taste (which helps with the more bitter greens) – Limes contain antioxidants including flavonol glycosides-containing kaempferol, which research has shown stops cell division in several cancers.
