Okay, it’s back to school season, which means your child has probably already come home with that back to school cold, cough or sniffles. What can we do to protect our immune systems? The answer is simple, let’s go back to nature and the goodness of the nutrients of vegetables.
I am creative and I like to be adventurous in the kitchen … after spending $7 or more on juices at the juice stores, I figured out a way to make fresh pressed vegetable juice at home using just a few simple gadgets, that tastes delicious and cleans up easily.
I love making these fresh-pressed juices for breakfast or a quick afternoon pick me up. I have a big juicer that I have used for years, but, the clean-up is difficult and sometimes the thought a big clean up led me away from making these delicious juices at home… until now.
I hope you have ventured into the world of personal blenders. I started years ago with a magic bullet, but traded up recently to the NurtiBullet, because it has a great horsepower to puree hard vegetables with ease. You can also use a regular blender with higher horsepower or a juicer, if desired to create this recipe.
Hippocrates stated, “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.” As a fast-paced society it is difficult to get in the USDA’s recommended 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
For one year, I made this recipe every morning, and my body began to regenerate new life inside, presumably from all the live enzymes and small molecule sizes of the nutrients. Ladies, can you believe that my eyesight actually improved by 50%? I noticed my glasses were not focusing well, and when I saw the eye doctor, I was told my eyesight actually showed a great improvement and my prescription was reduced.
Everyone always asks me for this recipe. I do cherish it, and I am so happy to share it with you today. To your good health! Please try it, and I look forward to hearing how this juice is helping your health improve.
Fresh Pressed Vegetable Juice – Makes 1 serving
NutriBullet Personal Blender
6” wire mesh colander
Add into nutrabullet container:
1-1/2 cups water
¼ c. fresh parsley
½ c. shredded carrots
½ of a lemon, cut off skin, but leave pith
¼ c. cucumber, cut off skin
¼ c. chopped spinach
2 celery ribs, cut into big chunks
¼ c. beets (I use frozen beet chunks from TJ’s)
Place the colander over the larger bowl, and puree in a blender. Pour through colander/strainer and let the juice drain below into the bowl. Turn colander and use a spoon to help the draining process. Pour over ice if desired and enjoy. It is delicious and so refreshing.
