Anti-Inflammatory Juice Recipe for the Brave

Systemic inflammation is often called "the silent killer" and is considered one of the causes of premature aging and death. Thanks goodness there are foods and superfoods that can help us curtail inflammation. Adding them to your daily meals can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases caused by systemic inflammation.


I called this tasty juice a "juice for the brave" because of the amount of super hot habanero peppers that I used to make it. You will definitely feel the fire and it may even make you speechless for a while. The sensation does not dissipate right away so you may want to drink a glass of water afterwards. If you are used to hot foods, add more habanero if you like.

Ingredients:
  • 2-3 large beets
  • 2-3 large golden beets
  • 5-6 carrots
  • 2 habanero peppers (or other very, very hot peppers)
  • 2 large chunks of fresh turmeric root (at least thumb sized)
  • 2 Navel oranges (optional)
  • 2 sweet apples (optional)
  • 2 sweet pears (optional)

Method: 
  • Wash and clean all the ingredients. Peel if necessary.
  • Pass all ingredients through the juicer, pour into large glasses and enjoy in good company! 

Save the juice pulp for my next recipe. We are going to make cookies for St. Valentine's Day!


Tip: Make this juice as often as you can. You can replace turmeric with ginger or use both, add more apples or oranges, use more carrots or more beets to make the juice taste different every time you make it. And always remember to save the pulp and use it in other recipes.
