This perfect vegetable juice is my favourite juice and one of the things that helped to stabilize my health when I was unwell for 15 years. I drank 2 – 16 ounce glasses a day for two years and then went to one per day. To this day it is still a favourite. This alkalizing vegetable juice is full of vitamins and minerals in an assimilable form.
Lettuce has been called ‘the perfect weight loss food’ and ‘rabbit food’ but it is so much more. With amazing healing benefits and 20% protein by calories, it could be called ‘gorilla food’ instead. It is low in calories and high in fiber and cellulose. It is heart-healthy and has a great ratio of omega-3 fatty acids. Lettuce is a great alkaline-forming food that is low on the glycemic index that I like to include in my vegetable juice recipe.
Carrots – forget about Vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy superfood, you get Vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging.
Celery is a negative calorie food, meaning it takes the body more calories to digest it than the food itself contains making it a very good food for weight loss. One stalk of celery has only a few calories because it is full of healthy cellulose. It is 95% water, very alkaline, and filled with fiber. Its weight loss benefits are well known but you would be surprised at its other amazing properties.
The common apple has uncommonly huge health benefits, and how to best enjoy them. Your mom didn’t use the term superfood but she knew about apples. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” was the first nutritional advice I and many children heard from their moms. For this reason, we call them “the first superfood, ” and they had some sweetness to this vegetable juice.
A single serving of beets can boost your energy and lower your blood pressure.
Eating beets long term can help fight cancer, reduce arthritic pain, lose weight and assist in a number of other health areas.
