Raw Food Detox

Raw Food Detox: How to Start

A raw food detox diet is a way to detoxify the body. If you do it well, it removes toxins or other contaminants that are stored in our body fat and cells. Detoxing improves health, energy, immune system, memory and digestion.


Warning

Most people are low in minerals such as: calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphor, sodium, iron. In order to detoxify, you need alkaline minerals. An important role of calcium is to aid in detoxification. It is an alkaline mineral and will “catch” the toxic acids that your body releases.

If the acids can’t be “bound” because your body lacks (alkaline) minerals, the chance is high that you will feel seriously ill during your detox, that your body refuses to release the toxins (you won’t be able to lose weight, since acids and toxins are often stored in your body fat), or that your body re-absorbs the released toxins again.

Alkalize

Therefore, it’s crucial that – before or during your detox – you get plenty of green vegetable juice and alkalizing super foods.

You may also replenish your minerals by adding a tablespoon of spirulina, blue green algae (i.e. from the “E3 Live” brand) or wheat grass powder in your purified drinking water. These have highly available amino acids and minerals. And they alkalize you.

Once you’ve remineralized, your raw food detox will be much more effective and easier.

Tip

You may also want to get activated zeolites or bentonite clay. The zeolites especially, are incredibly effective in attaching themselves to toxins, making them harmless and guiding them out of your body. The tiny zeolites neutralize the most toxic elements from our body such as arsenic, mercury.

Clay is much cheaper and is fine too but usually not strong enough. These zeolites will help you get rid of the toxins in an easy, safe and effective way. They also avoid that you reabsorb the toxins your body tries to get rid of. Highly recommended for use during the detox. Zeolites come in a tiny bottle and are pretty expensive, but I highly recommend then when you detox.

Also make sure that you drink enough alkaline and pure water during the process and that you get enough rest.

Vegetable Juice Recipes

Vegetable Juice Recipes – Top 5 list

Here you’ll find the healthiest and best tasting vegetable juice recipes.


Vegetable Juice Recipe
Carrot Juice

Here’s my favorite carrot juice recipe. I make this juice almost every morning. Very quick and easy:

Ingredients

1 lbs large carrots (washed and peeled)
1/2 lemon (peeled)
few green leafs such as red lettuce or carrot greens
1 apple

Directions

Put all ingredients in your juicer. (A centrifuge juicer is easiest for carrots.) Mix. Drink immediately.

I peel the carrot for taste (otherwise it tastes too earthy). I find this recipe sweet enough, but if you’re a beginner juicer or have a sweet tooth, add an apple for extra sweetness.

The health benefits of carrot juice? It provides Vitamin A, B Vitamins, Vitamin E and many minerals (including calcium). Great for pregnant and nursing mothers, eyesight, bones and teeth, liver and nails, skin and hair as well as helping in breast and skin cancer prevention.


Vegetable Juice Recipe
Tomato Juice

Are you looking for the best of all tomato juice recipes! This one is! You canjuice the tomatoes in a juicer but if you have a high speed blender – such as a Vitamix or Blendec Blender – and you like more “body” to your juice, you might like to use the blender in stead.

Here’s the recipe for your own V8 juice: quick, easy and yummy!

Ingredients

3 cups chopped tomatoes
1 stalk celery
1 cucumber
3 drops stevia (optional)
1/2 teaspoon himalaya sea salt
pepper
cayenne pepper

Directions

Juice the tomatoes, celery, cucumber in your juicer.

Add drops stevia if you like a sweeter taste, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.

If you like you can also add a 1/4 onion, fresh oregano and basil and red bell pepper

Mmmmm so good!


Vegetable Juice Recipe
Spinach Juice

This juice recipe is perfect for starters of veggie juicing. It’s soft and sweet. Very tasty. Not bitter or strong at all.

Ingredients

1 bunch spinach
2 apples
1/2 lemon, peeled (optional)

Directions

Put all ingredients in your juicer. A twin gear juicer such as the Green Star Juicer is best for extracting greens.

Mix well and enjoy.

You don’t have to add the lemon, it’s good enough without it. But I just love lemon, so I always add a little.


Jamba Juice Recipe
Wheat Grass Juice w Orange

Jamba Juice has a great wheat grass juice recipe: They serve their wheat grass with a slice of orange. I really like that idea. It makes the wheat grass a little fancier. And in case you don’t like the taste of wheat grass – after finishing your juice, you can take a bite of the orange!

Wheat grass is so good for you! It has most of the vitamins and minerals needed for human health. It is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes. It has up to 70% chlorophyll (which builds the blood). It’s an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. And it’s one of the best alkaline foods.


Vegetable Juice Recipe
Cabbage Juice

ph and weight loss

Cabbage juice is known for its ability to heal peptic ulcers. It’s is full of vitamin K, C, fiber, manganese, B6, Folic Acid, Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. And very low in calories.

Cabbage is so good for you. Recent studies show that people who eat most cabbage have a significantly lower risk of colon, lung, breast and prostate cancer. Even compared to other people that eat lots of veggies.

Red cabbage has even more nutrients and protects against Alzheimer’s disease (Food Science and Technology).

Juicing cabbage is a superb way to get the best out of your cabbage. Cabbage provides anti-carcinogenic glucosinolates (anti cancer fighters). When you cook cabbage, you kill the special myrosinase enzyme that makes the cabbage so healing, thus making cabbage less effective as anti cancer food.

Drinking it straight might be a little too much in the beginning. Then, simply mix it with carrot juice. Start with juicing carrots. Every day add some cabbage leafs until you’re used to the taste. (The taste isn’t that strong.)

You may also try other cruciferous family members of cabbage such as kale, broccoli, and collard greens.
