WARMING APPLE CARROT GINGER LEMON JUICE

December 5, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Everybody loves apple and carrot juice. When I first got my Champion juicer years ago, I would literately make it everyday. It is a great combination for those starting out with fresh fruits and vegetables juices, and sweet enough for children too.

By adding ginger and lemon, you get a more grown-up version, delicious year round, but particularly appreciated on a cold morning.

Makes a little over 1 litre :

6 apples of your choice

a dozen carrots

2 inches / 5 cm fresh ginger root

3 lemons

Simply juice all your ingredients.

Enjoy !

ROSEHIP AND LEMON TEA

November 28, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

The rose plant is very versatile. The rose flower will make any woman smile, and the very much edible fruit, the rose hip, can be used to make jam or herbal tea. Rose hips are sometimes brewed with hibiscus flower to make a delicious herbal tea.

Rose hips are particularly high in vitamin C. During World War II, the people of Britain were actually encouraged to make syrup from wild-grown rose hips for their children as Vitamin C supplement. This was because it was very difficult to get hold of citrus fruits imported from the tropics, as many commercial ships were destroyed.

Rose hips also contain plenty of lycopene, some vitamin A and B, essential fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects.

This lemon – rose hip herbal tea combo will help prevent colds during the winter months.

Serves 1 (makes 1 litre) :

1 tbsp dried Rosehip powder

1 lemon, sliced thin

1 litre freshly boiled water

Put the rosehip and lemon slices in a 1 litre teapot. Pour the water and brew for at least 10 minutes. Sip hot or cold.

ACTIVATED LEMON SEEDS

November 13, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

This is another shockingly easy recipe. I take sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and soak them overnight to start the sprouting and maximise the nutrition in them.

Did you know that sprouts contain all the nutrition needed by a baby plant to grow into a mature plant ?

I then marinate my seeds in a mixture of tamari and lemon juice and finally dehydrate them to get them crunchy.

Snack on a small handful or swap your regular croutons for these little babies and add them to your soups / salads for added goodness !

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1 or 2 tbsp tamari

1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed

In separate bowls, soak the sunflower and pumpkin seeds for at least 4 hours or overnight.

The next morning, rinse and drain your seeds. Put them in a mixing bowl together with the tamari and the lemon juice and mix well. Allow to marinate for a couple of hours, then put the seeds on a non stick dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for about 12 hours  at 42°C.

*Alternatively, you may choose to sprout your seeds for 1 day.

Will keep in an airtight glass jar for months.

DETOX GREEN JUICE

August 30, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Green juice is detoxifying, and today’s tremendously so.

It has no fruit, so virtually no sugar.

Even though cucumbers do not necessarily get as much press as other vegetables, they do have valuable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits.

Celery is a very good source of vitamin C, which helps support the immune system.

Bell peppers are very popular vegetable and are actually very nutritious : they are a good source of vitamin E and they have dozens of different carotenoids, including beta-carotene, which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

With it’s vibrant colors, chard, like spinash and beet greens, is very rich in phytonutrients that are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and support detoxification.

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C, giving them antioxidant and immune boosting properties. They also have antibiotic effects.

Turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory that has been long used in both Chinese and Indian traditional systems of medicine.

Whole books have been written to praise the health benefits of garlic. To name a few, garlic has cardiovascular benefits, helps lower blood pressure, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it is naturally antibacterial and antiviral, it protects from cancer, it even improves iron metabolism and regulates the number of fat cells in the body !

For a little under 1 litre juice :

1 cucumber

1 celery head

1 green pepper

1 bunch chard (I used red chard)

2 lemons

fresh turmeric root, a piece double the size of a little finger

4 or 5 cloves garlic

Juice. Enjoy.

Question : Will my breath smell of garlic ?

Answer : No. But the turmeric will taint your nails yellow after cleaning up the juicer.

Stay Well and Happy
