Unhooking Stress In Our Lives

We’re toasting you with a yummy green juice today. Bill’s been on a juice fast and I’ve joined in for some of it. Juice is such a super way to cleanse and nourish the body.

The newest books How Not To Diet by Michale Greger, M.D. and UnDo It! by Dean Ornish, M.D. point to stress as a major contributor to poor health and obesity in North America. So how do we unhook all the stress we feel in our lives? Check out our video for more:

Yes, our thinking, moment to moment, is how we amp up stress and also how we can unhook from it. Next week we’ll explain that even more for you. So tune in then.

Juice Ingredients

The juice recipe we made this morning is below. When you make juice, just trust your instinct for what ingredients to use. Today we used green cabbage, kale, and Romaine lettuce for the green part as well as many other veggies.And we added turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties and cayenne pepper to add warmth. It’s always so delicious.

Dr. Greger in his How Not To Die Cookbook, has a juice recipe with raw onion. We’ll try that and let you know what we learned.

If you feel you’d love to cleanse your body, try a juice cleanse. It’s so easy and very satisfying. The release of toxins in my body feels so good. And in the “Past Blogs” tab above, scroll down to the Juice Cleanse blog and you’ll find many, many other recipes.

To Your Amazing Health,

  1. How much of that juice are you drinking in a day to do your juice cleanse Bill? It says serves 2.

    Do you find your body needing some sort of protein or during your cleanse is it good to take a break from protein?

    What kind of juicer do you have and/or recommend?

    • Hi Terri, What great questions. Thank you.
      If it is just for you, cut the recipe in half. Don’t juice more than you need or it oxidizes and you lose lots of nutrients.
      No protein needed at all. Veggies all contain protein.
      The juicer we love is Omega Juice Extractor VRT 350.
      Please let me know if you have any other questions. Enjoy your fast.
      Warmly, Connie
