Juicing has been a daily supplement to my dietary routine following my first marathon. The immune system is weakened for the first few days of the recovery process.
I was introduced to juicing over 10 years ago when my Mom handed me a glass of carrot, celery and apple juice. Since then, I have gone through mostly summer month juicing phases.
I still use the juicer from my first sample. The model is: Hamilton Beach 67800. They have them on Amazon for 40 bucks. It’s easy to clean and serves it’s purpose.
My favorite vegetables to juice:
◆ Beets- Good for the blood. Stimulates the lymph system. Cleans the liver, gall bladder, kidneys and prostate.
◆ Carrots- Increases vitality by preventing infections. Protects the nervous system.
◆ Celery- High in fiber, magnesium and iron.
◆ Cucumber- High silicon content promotes hair and nail growth.
◆ Spinach- Good for the digestive track.
I will keep it juicy as long as my body is craving these nutrients. My energy has increased and my nails are noticeably stronger.
I want to try juicing…I’m just not sure I’ll do it right. I know so many people who do it though.
I mainly use carrots as a base and add whatever I have available. There are books and info online that give recipes for specific ailments.
I’ve always wanted to make juice and/or smoothies with beets!
The only downside to beets is cutting those bad boys up.
I hear you can cook them and that helps?
Thanks for the tip!
