Are you looking to replace blood pressure-lowering drugs with natural, diet-based solutions?
Drinking a single glass of beetroot juice daily may just be enough to lower blood pressure in those suffering from hypertension, according to latest research. In fact, this simple juice can lead to a ‘significant’ reduction in blood pressure!…
If you wish you could lose weight quickly, chances are you have considered fasting or juice fasting to shed some of those unwanted pounds. Perhaps you’ve seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead movie and want to achieve similar results for yourself. Without a doubt, juice fasting for weight loss will help you shed those pounds quickly.
Fasting is certainly a great way to give your body a break from all the hard work it is doing digesting and eliminating the foods you eat. It can do wonders to your body, allowing it to cleanse itself, heal, and – of course – lose weight.
However, if you are considering a fasting for weight loss – there is one thing you need to keep in mind.
If you are unable or unwilling to make PERMANENT changes to your diet and follow a healthy eating plan after the fast, then you will most likely gain your weight right back after the fast.
Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the benefits of the fast will go to waste – as even a couple of days of juice fast can provide your body with fantastic health benefits.
Keeping your menu to liquids – fruit, vegetable and green juices! is an excellent way to aid your body’s natural repair cycles. Since our bodies are usually far too acidic, this is a good way to help flush out all the bad things and replace them with the good ones we need.…
Watermelon juice has a delightful cooling property and watermelon’s water content is refreshing during hot summer days.
I love to just devour chilled watermelon pieces, but I hate to discard those rinds that still have lots of juicy and nutrient-rich liquid in them.
Did you know that most of nutritional content in the watermelon is in the rind? It contains chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion.
Well, you don’t have to throw away that rind! Simply juice it, instead!
If you don’t enjoy watermelon rind juice because it doesn’t taste as good as the pink flesh, then add other fruits to the juice (you can make delicious green juice with it!) or blend the juice with other fruits into a smoothie. Read more here……
Radishes add peppery bite to juice that works nicely as a flavor beside other tart and sweet fruits and vegetables. Radishes are a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and brussels sprouts, which mean they contain phytonutrients that can help support the liver with its natural detoxification process, support the immune system, and provide cancer fighting properties. Don’t add too much, though, as radishes can be overpowering with strong flavor. To tone it down, add more apple or a pear.
With all the leaves changing colors I get inspired into creating recipes that match my surroundings. This means that pumpkins and squashes are on the menu regularly. Soups and stews are two types of recipes that come to mind, but what about a some squash juice?
Have you ever tried juicing a squash?
Well, this fall I challenge you to make some fresh squash juice.
The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
