Pucker-Up Buttercup!

Or is it… beet-cup?

*cough*

Because this juice was sure to make you make a face!

You know what babies need?  Milk right?   Similarly, when I was a baby at juicing, I couldn’t handle some of the juices without some fruit.  A little orange at least.  That was my infant “milk” for juicing.

I needed to broaden my horizons.  It was time.

That needed to happen TODAY.

Why the change?

Well, between the prep and action of our 10 day vacation, the stress of my mom’s poor health, and just continuing to chelate this high level of mercury in me – my body is  struggling.  I want to be sure I’m doing everything I can to help it detox, de-stress and rebuild – and combining certain foods (mainly fruits with veggies is a no-no right now). 

I got my supplies all out to try Chris Wark’s (From chrisbeatcancer.com) juice suggestion.  All organic of course (and if you’ve not tried organic, let me just put this plug in – the #1 difference – is it TASTES so much better… it actually has flavor!  I had a non-organic beet for juice one time – and it tasted just like DIRT.  No lie.  ICK!)  Ok, back to the juice.

– 5 carrots

– 3 stalks of celery

– 1/4 of a beet

– about a thumb sized piece of raw ginger root

So that’s it – I worked this through my new commercial Champion juicer – and it produced a beautiful glass of 8oz juice.

Well…

Each drink was interesting –  Not bad.  Just… interesting.  Different.  Most prominently celery, with an after taste of ginger.  (a little goes a long way!)

I’m hopeful that I can develop a taste for this.

Why? 

Because this juice is really good for detoxing… and I really have a lot of junk to get out of my body!

The up note was that when I finished this juice – in 5 large gulps…  my brain felt “sparkly” (if that is possible)…  I really did like the after effect!

Watch out, I’m about to get crazy!  I think I’ll make it again tomorrow!
