“Juicing For Life – A Guide to the Health Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing”, Cherie Calbom, Maureen Keane, 1992, Avery
Eat your vegetables. How many times did your Mother tell you that? Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. How many times have you read that, seen it displayed in every food diagram, pyramid and flowchart? Everyone from the Surgeon General on down tells us the red-orange veggies fight cancer, that citrus helps our immune system and the leafy green veggies generally keep us running like a well-oiled toy train. And do we listen? read the complete review here.
This drink is recommended for people with bronchitis. I made it because I like the way it tastes.
1/4″ slice of ginger root, unpeeled
4-5 medium carrots, greens removed, unpeeled
1/2 medium apple, seeded, unpeeled
Wash all fruit under running water. Push the ginger through the hopper of the juicer with the carrots and apple.
Instead of reaching for cola (patting myself on the back here for no longer having cola in the house), I chill out with a
1/4″ slice ginger root, unpeeled
1 apple, seeded, unpeeled
Wash all fruit under running water. Push the ginger through the hopper of the juicer with the apple. Pour into an ice-filled glass. Fill and top with sparkling water; serve.
These are only two of the many drinks you’ll find in this terrific book. Try juicing for a month. See if you can go back to your old eating habits.
