I can?t emphasize this enough: Drink your greens daily!
The USDA, National Cancer Institute, Surgeon General, and the secretary of Health and Human Services all agree that Americans need to increase their consumption of fresh produce to include at least 2 to 4 servings of vegetables every day. One of the easiest ways to add them to your diet is to juice.
The lack of trace minerals in the diet has quite possibly become one of the major causes of disease within Western culture today. If you look in a chart of minerals,
you'll see that the recommended source of virtually all minerals and trace minerals is green leafy vegetables. A green juice is a fast,
delicious, and inexpensive way to get your daily trace mineral needs down the hatch in five minutes or less.
Green juices are alkaline and rich in enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and chlorophyll. They help the body to stabilize blood sugar, absorb more oxygen, and flush toxins. They are good for your weight, heart, bones, circulation and can be helpful in lowering your cholesterol.
Daily juicing will help you to have increased energy, ideal weight, a glowing complexion and a strengthened immune system.
It is recommended that you drink at least 16 ounces of fresh green juice each day.
One of my favorite juice recipes is: 1 small cucumber or ? large cucumber, 2 celery stalks, a handful of parsley, 1 granny smith apple (remove seeds),
and ? lime.
I recommend the Black & Decker Fruit & Vegetable Juice Extractor if you are looking for an inexpensive, easy ?to-clean, mid-sized juicer. The Item Number is JE2050.
If you don?t have time to juice, I recommend Vibrant Health Field of Greens. This powder is mixed with water to make a great tasting, totally organic green juice.
