This anti-cancer juice is exploding with ingredients that contain high levels of vitamins A and C

Regularly drinking this pure juice will affect every aspect of your life.  We all know that beauty comes from within; and once you begin hydrating your body with the most nutritionally perfect – organic liquid – everything about you will shine!  Your hair, your skin, your eyes, your nails, and your emotional thoughts – you will be wholly renewed and transformed.

Once the body and mind start operating on the fuel which God gave you – you will instantly feel energised!  This positive outcome will then spill over to all aspects of your life – your work, your relationships, and your self-confidence.

The ingredients in this juice expunges mucus and eradicates toxins.  Toxins and a too-acidic body contribute to weight gain.  The acidic residues infiltrate your cells – causing you to store fat.  The antioxidants in citrus fruit and the metabolism booster ginger join hands and saturate the cells – flushing out all the nasty bad stuff.

Plus, the fruit acids dissolve the mucus that are keeping those deadly acids hostage in your body.  Many of our favourite foods in the Western diet are loaded with acidity – creating acidic garbage in the bloodstream.  Such foods include dairy, meat, gluten-flour, coffee, alcohol, sugar, and even pollution.  It’s not harmful if you eat acidic foods in tiny amounts, but indulging on very acid-forming foods regularly places a burdensome task on the kidneys and liver.

The goal is to ALKALISE, DETOX, and REJUVENATE.

This living juice will help you destroy that toxic build-up.  After you develop a healthy nutritional lifestyle – loaded with living raw foods – the fat will just melt off.  So, join me as we kill those intruders with the potent ingredients listed below.

The main ingredient in my special elixir is – you guessed it – grapefruit!  Grapefruits are the largest members of the citrus family.  They originated outside of Asia and were hybridised in Jamaica (possibly a cross between a pommelo and a sweet orange).  A real popular ‘weight loss’ fruit, grapefruits are ‘eliminators’ – making them the ultimate detoxifier.  Your liver will love you once you start drinking these citrus delights.

Juice fasting with grapefruits (or eating them) for 3-7 days will detoxify your body.  It’ll clean out your colon and purify the fluids in your body.

Okay… Let’s start juicing! This zingy, zesty juice will instantly wake you and your senses up – making this an excellent breakfast juice.

Ingredients

  • 5 Grapefruits
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 Limes
  • 1/4 Medium Pineapple
  • Handful of Ginger, you be the judge on how much to use

Instructions

  1. Cut the tops and bottoms of the grapefruits.  Then get a sharp knife and cut around the edges to peel off the skin.  Remember not to cut the white pith away – as it contains a ton of nutrients.  Do the same with the limes, pineapple, and lemon. (**You don’t need to peel the limes and lemon if you own a high-quality juicer)
  2. Juice the lemon, limes, ginger, and grapefruits. Then, juice the pineapple.
  3. Pour over ice.  Salud! (Cheers in Spanish for you non-Spanish speakers)

Aduki Bean Falafel with Tahini Sauce

3

adzuki bean falafel

A far healthier version of the classic Middle-Eastern fast food treat

Aduki beans make a slightly healthier falafel than traditional chick peas – excellent for those wanting to add more fibre and less fat into their diets

This protein-rich little pulse is loaded with B-vitamins for  continuous energy and body tissue repair. They also contain tons of minerals needed for exercise:  lethargy-fighting iron; potassium, which acts as a natural diuretic by helping the body to rid itself of excess fluid; and immunity-boosting minerals zinc, calcium, and magnesium.

Did you know that in Japan, these small red legumes are known as the “king of beans?”

Serves: 4

Falafels

  • 1 1/2-cups dried aduki beans (not canned or precooked)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2-cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp oat flour
  • 1-cup onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  1. Soak dry beans overnight in cold water.  Drain and rinse.
  2. Boil pre-soaked beans for 30 minutes.  Drain and rinse.  Beans will not be completely cooked.  Leaving them slightly firm will help falafel’s texture.  Set beans in a single layer on a paper towel to dry.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).  Brush baking sheet with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, and set aside.
  4. In a food processor, add beans and parsley, flour, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, and salt.  Pulse until ingredients form a thick paste.  Use a tablespoon to scoop mixture into the palm of your hand, roll into balls, and place on prepared baking sheet.  Continue until all of the mixture has been used.  Brush remaining olive oil on the tops of the falafel balls and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (180 degrees C) and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  6. Serve on top of a green salad and top with tahini and hummus.

Tahini

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed with a little sea salt
  • 100 ml tahini
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Place the crushed garlic in a mixing bowl and stir in the tahini.
  2. Squeeze in the lemon juice – it will thicken considerably.  Stir in a little water until it reaches the consistency of double cream.  Add the olive oil and season.

Raw Salad Dressing Recipe

gold dressing

Improve your lifestyle, revitalise your health, and stimulate your taste buds with this delicious raw salad dressing

This salad dressing is so fresh and alive because it hasn’t been exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius (105 degrees Fahrenheit) – thus maintaining its enzymatic and nutritional properties.

A well-balanced diet of uncooked plant foods contains all of the vitamins and minerals necessary for leading a healthy life.  Cooking destroys over 80% of a food’s nutritive value!  Plus, cooking annihilates up to 100% of the enzymes in food. Yikes!

Enzymes are important because they’re responsible for every metabolic process that occurs in our bodies – from digesting food to repairing our cells. When you eat lots of fresh salads with raw dressings (like this one above), the enzymes in them practically digest themselves.  That means more energy for you to run around doing what you enjoy!  I mean who enjoys passing out after meals?

Lemons are bursting with antioxidants. The citric acid encourages healthy digestion.  Best of all, it’s loaded with vitamin C, making it ideal for the autumn and winter season.

Olive Oil Powerhouse
