Hello, I am pleased to share this amazing holiday detoxifying recipe with you!
Thanksgiving is a notorious holiday for indulging on our favorite meals. From the savory juicy turkey to the sweet cinnamon pumpkin pie that’s often topped off with a fluffy whip cream! It becomes easy for us to lose track of our portions as we enjoy the company of our loved ones while reminiscing about all that we are thankful for, I mean, there is always tomorrow, right?
Tomorrow has arrived and so has your expanded waistline!
Don’t panic! I am here to share with you a miracle juice that will not only cleanse your digestive system but will help regulate your blood pressure, hydrate you, and get you back on track. Let’s get started!
Ingredients: Makes 2 servings approx. 800 ml
- 7 Carrots (approx. 2 cups)
- 1 Stalk of Celery (approx. 2 cups)
- 1 Cucumber (approx. 1 cup)
- 1 Beet (approx. 3/4 cup)
- 1 Lime
- juicer (preferably a slow juicer)
- cutting board
- strainer or soaking bowl (depending on your personal rinsing methods)
Prepare To Wash. I prefer to save time here and chop everything up as I would feed it to the juicer. Preferably, Don’t peel the carrots, beets, and cucumbers! The skin contains many valuable minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins. I have chosen to peel and chop up my beets (as I mentioned, whatever you prefer) as it is easier for my juicer to break down.
Wash thoroughly. Healthy juicing begins with proper washing. There are two methods you may try, the first is soaking:
Soaking is best for none organic fruits and vegetables because they contain more pesticides
(Please note, neither method will get rid of pesticides completely)
In a large bowl, fill it with cold water- enough to submerge all of your juicing ingredients with a splash of white vinegar. Soak for approximately 10-20 minutes. Use either a vegetable brush to remove the excess dirt or a clean sponge.
(Do not use warm or hot water. Hot water will break down the vitamins in the vegetables, eliminating the sole purpose of juicing)
The second method, which I prefer is a simple rinse with cold water. Let’s be honest, juicing takes time and I do not always have that privilege.
Brush off any excess dirt with a Vegetable brush or a clean sponge. Now we are ready to juice!
Beets Have an earthy sweet taste. The star of the show is richest in Vitamin B-6 & helps reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, blood pressure, and stroke.
Carrots Are sweet and fruity, with a slight bitter finish. With an astonishing Vitamin A resource, carrots also help reduce the risk of cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
Cucumbers smell like rain! which makes its faint sweet and salted taste perfect for any occasion. They are a great source of fiber and prevent high blood pressure.
Celery Is the base of this recipe. Aside from the amazing vitamins, and health benefits, celery is our water base vegetable. A celery stalk goes a long way when juicing. Celery water contains many positive net calories, which hydrate us, and improves blood flow.
Lime is our citrus fruit, which helps balance out all the sweet and salty components of our ingredients. limes help to stimulate digestive secretions, which improves our immune system, and aids in constipation.
Please note, I am not a dietitian or professional. I am simply sharing my personal recipes with you, with researchIi have done on my own time. please consult s professional before trying any recipe from anyone for your own personal health safety.
Finally, feed all ingredients to your juicer!
And enjoy! this earthy, sweet, and salty yet slightly sour juice will help cleanse your digestive system and get you back on track!
Drink this as a meal replacer, or add it to your healthy morning breakfast routine.
If you have a stubborn digestive system, or simply overindulged this past holiday then this is the recipe you need! My amazing go-to detoxifier. I hope you enjoy the benefits of this juice as much as I do!
