My mom made this juice every day for me for 6 months before I was getting married (hey- fat flush and all you know!) I used to call it the magic green goo and by the way, she didn't add the lovely tasting apples! I couldn't look at kale for a good year after this. However, I have recently started including kale again in my morning smoothies and the addition of apple really works to forget what you're drinking. Try it out. Nida know what she is talking about. Your body will thank you. W.P
Following through on my promise from the last post, here is another fat flushing recipe for your commitment to true health this year! Most people often wonder how to get their protein in with juices or raw food and many are not even aware that we need protein to stave off hunger and feed the basic needs of our cells. I certainly didn't until my nutritionist made me aware of it.
This juice recipe is a complete protein which means it contains all of the essential amino acids. In the raw vegan world you can mix and match to create complete proteins, however here are some examples for combining complimentary proteins for those who are leaning into an alternate style but still want to bring in complete proteins in their meals:
So where do you get protein in the raw vegan world? Same place as the elephants, bulls, buffalos -- from eating plants! Plant-based foods contain extremely high-quality protein that is easier for your body to digest and benefit from. If you eat plenty of greens and have a variety of nuts/seeds (but not too much!), it is very easy to get 100% "complete" protein, meaning all 8 essential amino acids are present.
