Not sure about anyone else, but detox is in order for me. In fact in conversation with my sisters - we agreed we needed to purge. It seems that we all did some 'happy' eating of the same type of things, even though we were not all together at the same time - we ate the same. So, I made this juice and ummm - I know that I received my help to start - that is my story and I am sticking to it, as I have felt the rumblings of joy.
This juice recipe comes from Cary Kingsbury of http://myjuicecleanse.com/juicecleanse/raw-beets-for-health-and-detox/ and she writes:
Feeling a bit run down after the holidays? Too much coffee, ham, and fudge?
I'd like to share my recovery juice recipe with you. This juice is packed with antioxidants, helps reduce inflammation and soothes the digestive tract. It's my go to juice this time of year. Enjoy!
Post Holiday Juice
makes approx 16 ounces
1/2 red bell pepper
1 medium beet
2 celery stalks
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
Wash vegetables. Peel orange and lemon. Cut vegetables to fit in your juicer. Push all except turmeric powder through juicer and pour into glass. Stir in turmeric powder.
Note: If you are new to juicing beets please use only half a beet. Beets are detoxifying and have laxative properties. Some people experience cramping and nausea from large quantities of beets. For more information on beets visit my blog.
