Post-Holiday Detox Juice

Weekend always seems like the best time to start a detox. With Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year's Eve, Epiphany, or whatever we celebrated, behind us, we could certainly dedicate a weekend to a body cleanse. Juicing is only one method that can be used to effectively get rid of the toxins that may have accumulated in our bodies during the holidays. Juices are delicious and easy to make, and unlike many other methods of cleansing, provide our bodies with vitamins, minerals and valuable phytonutrients.


Ingredients:
  • 6 large carrots
  • 3 large chunks of fresh turmeric root
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 large Navel oranges
  • 1 Meyer lemon


Method:
  • Prepare all the ingredients for juicing. Clean, wash and peel where necessary.
  • Pass the ingredients through a juicer. Mix well and pour into chilled glasses. Enjoy in good company! 

When juicing or going on a juice fast, you have to choose your juice ingredients very wisely: 
  • pick fruits and vegetables known for their healing and detoxifying properties
  • use less fruits and more vegetables
  • use organic ingredients

Also, do not store your juice in the fridge - always make fresh juice and make only as much juice as you can drink. Juices are perishable!


I know people who love to make large batches of juice and store it in the refrigerator. I prefer to drink a freshly-made juice. This is why I usually choose weekends for a juice fast. I suggest you use your juicer a few times a day during a juice detox. It might not be a great fun to wash your juicer each time you use it, but you certainly will be drinking juices that have higher nutritional value. 


I hope that you will make time for yourself during this weekend. Your body will thank you for it. So will your mind.
