I have just created a green juice that is composed of some of the most powerful foods on the planet and it ended up tasting great too! This is so incredibly healing and anti-inflammatory that I might even call it a cure all!
This is the Super Food Green Juice Recipe: **For Advanced juicers who are already detoxed**
- 1 Apple
- 1 Lemon with skin
- 3 stalks of celery
- 1/2 green bell pepper
- 1 cup of pineapple chunks
- 1-2 inch of Turmeric
- 2 leaves Kale
- 1 bunch watercress
- 1/2 bunch cilantro
- 1/2 bunch parsley
The Water Base: Celery, Bell Pepper
The Sweet to cover bitters: Apple, Lemon and Pineapple
The Power Greens: Kale, Cilantro and Parsley
The Super Foods: Turmeric and Watercress
The Water Base: The celery in this mixture helps in digestion over time. I just learned that it helps to increase digestive stomach acids to help breakdown your food for better assimilation of nutrients. The bell pepper is anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal. Both provide the juice with a good amount of water for hydration.
The Sweet: The apple in this mixture provides the drink with some soluble fiber and helps to detox the colon. The lemon is anti-inflammatory and alkalizing. The pineapple contains a digestive enzyme to help in the digestive process. All three of these are used to cover up the bitter taste of the greens. The pineapple does a great job at this.
The Power Greens: The kale, cilantro and parsley contain a ton of chlorophyll. This helps to kill the imbalance of bacteria in your gut that drives Crohn’s. All three are anti-inflammatory and amazing healers. These three are also energizing and provide mental clarity. I could go on and on about them…
The Super Foods: Turmeric and Watercress are at the top of the most nutrient dense food list. Turmeric is the most anti-inflammatory food/substance in the world. It far exceeds any drug used for inflammation. It is a cancer destroyer as well. The watercress is the #1 super food on the planet. It is the most nutrient dense food you can consume and has too many benefits to list.
In conclusion: This drink has everything you need and more to reverse the damage that Crohn’s has done to you. I know it works after doing this for about 1 full year and giving up medication shortly after starting. The juices from these foods are medicine! You need to think of them as medicine and not just a drink you have with meals. They don’t always taste awesome, but it is not about that. It is about doing something to finally heal your problem and not just manage or cover it up.
