Anti-inflammatory Power House Juice


The Recipe:

  • 1/3 bunch Cilantro
  • 1/3 bunch Parsley
  • 3-4 Kale Leaves
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1/2 Lemon with skin
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 Chunks Pineapple
  • 1 inch Turmeric

I would like to start off by saying that the mixture above was very tasty despite some of the green ingredients.  I was pleasantly surprised by the flavors.  I only like to share recipes that I have personally tasted.  There have been quite a few mistakes along the way that fell into the category of 100% health and 0% taste.

To build this juice I got my inspiration from The Life Regenerator on youtube, Dan McDonald.  He has many of the same ingredients, but I changed it according to taste and what I had in my fridge.  If you have not checked him out, you really need to because he has been juicing for 15+ years and has a wealth of information/recipes for you.  http://www.youtube.com/user/liferegenerator

I thought about this juice in 3 parts:

  1. Greens/Anti-inflammatory
  2. Water content
  3. Taste/Cover flavors.

I like to have a decent amount of juice to drink each day.  I used the cucumber, apple and pineapple to get some water content into the juice.  I also need the juice to be drinkable so the apple and pineapple really gave it a good natural sweetness.  The greens in this drink are amazing for all health ailments.  They are antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory.  The anti-inflammatory king of this juice is the Turmeric.  Turmeric is being touted as possibly the most anti-inflammatory substance on the planet!!

This juice came out a very dark green in the Omega.  The taste was perfectly balanced and all I could taste was the pineapple, apple and lemon mostly.  The beauty of juicing is that the bitter tastes of the Kale and other greens are within the juice, but are just masked by the sweetness of other ingredients.  Super nutrition for you cells with great taste.  I shall drink this one again tomorrow!!:)
