Healthy/Vegan food tips [Merged]

Hi to you all, I have decided to start this thread to help out all you hard workers, who are run down and low on energy.

One of the fastest way to get real healthy energy into your body is by green juicing each day. This also cleanses your body and really gives you wings

First step is getting a good Juicer. If you already have one, here is today's recipe:

1 Cucumber
1 Zucchini
4 Jerusalem Artichokes
1 small Fennel
12 Basil leaves
1 Lemon
1 small Red Pepper Bell (Capsicum)

Use Bio Vegetables only.

This will produce two large glasses approx.

In the morning, before breakfast, is the best time to drink it. Juicing vegetables is far healthier than juicing fruit and has much less natural sugars.

Any questions, please feel free to ask. Happy to help.

Some of us make things easier on ourselves by eating a well-balanced diet that provides all our nutritional needs in the first place.

But thanks anyway

Re: Green Juicing Energy for everyday life

i drink green juices everyday- love them. but i was told that you shouldn't put more than three different veggies in a juice to really get the full effect. anyway, i usually have the same one everyday as if it were my morning coffee

Re: Green Juicing Energy for everyday life

I sometimes work with Dr Ginger, who is the Green Juicing Queen of America and a friend of mine.

We really like to mix it around with green juices, like adding Lemon, Ginger & Wild Garlic (Ranson) (German: Baerlauch) to help ward off that cold or flu.

Broccoli and Parsley are also very good to throw in.

Anyway just offering an opinion - nothing more.

I have Olympic athletes, like Stephie Rice, who follow me on twitter for such tips.

i think the idea was that you are more likely to get more from the veggies when they are mixed together less- if that makes sense. actually, i'm not sure if it is true- i meant it as a question.

No this is not quite correct, you can put as many as you like.
A real good way to get your daily Vitamin C is to throw in a humble kiwi fruit for more C than an Orange

absolutely, but some people just like juice as well. i eat a good diet, but i prefer to make a juice for many reasons (taste, easy to take with me, etc) than have some other kind of snack. i don't juice because i lack something but i like it.

i guess if people don't like veggies, it would be easier, quicker and painless for them to have a juice though.

Re: Green Juicing Energy for everyday life

I've always wanted to go on a ''juice diet'', maybe diet is not the right word but I am interested in detox and such... I just need a good machine/blender because I love smoothies. Juices are fine also but I need more body in a juice and I drink them from time to time but I want to ''get serious '' about them.
I honestly want to say that starting the day (before breakfast) with a juice/smoothie is not for everybody! Just so that people like me (with stomach issues) don't get really excited about the juicing and then find themself in a painful, low energy , grumpiness state (been there, done that, learned my lesson). In my case, I first eat breakfast and then drink a juice/smoothie after 1 hr.

This also cleanses your body
My body is always "clean", both inside and out.

Just where do you find all this "dirt" inside your body? And why does it stay there until you eat some decent food?

It depends on your digestion. Maybe Vegan Chef can explain? I would never go Vegan though. Ever.

Hi, one of the first place that is clogged up are the endothelial cells? That protect the body and blood all 100,000km of them.Plant based whole foods reverse the damage.
hope this help

Re: Green Juicing Energy for everyday life

Wikipaedia states that you need the clogging up coagulation function, it is part of the tissue repair process,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endothelial_cells

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endothelial_dysfunction

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endothelial_activation

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coagulation

So once again, please, which part of the body needs "cleaning"? There is no mention of plant based cures there either.

How do you know? There is a suggestion that intermittant fasts clean your blood, for example. Did you ever have your body checked inside to see if it is clean? I have no doubt that your body is as clogged up as mine is, if it isnīt then I would like to know how you achieve it.

I am not vegetarian or vegen, but I find a 36 hour fast once a week does wonders for my health.
