So today is the first day on my three day juice fast.
Safeway.com have just delivered my organic fruit and veg and it was on with the first official JM three day detox juice. I had to wing it this morning with the cold war juice.
I actually made twice the batch so I can have a glass later on. Juicing is very flexible.
Here is the recipe:
Juice Master Detox Special
1 slice of lemon (rind on)
1/4 yellow bell pepper
1 inch slice of cucumber
1/4 piece of celery
1 inch broccoli stem
1 inch slice raw beetroot
I reproduce from Jason Vale’s Keep it Simple book.
This includes: Vitamins A. B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E and K, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, pectin, boron, ellagic acid, beta-carotene, folic acid, phosphorus, selenium, riboflavin and anti cancer phytonutrients.
How will this help? Celery helps to flush the body of excessive carbon dioxide and reduce acidity in the system. The beetroot is extremely good for cleaning the bloodstream and is excellent, along with lemon, for cleansing the liver and kidneys. Beetroot is also one of nature’s finest blood builders. The high levels of beta-carotene in this juice help mop up harmful free radicals and strengthen the immune system.
