You know that perennial hot topic: juices vs. smoothies?
My new big thing this year is hedging my bets with what I’m calling a jui-cie – a juice/smoothie combo.
Those of you who follow my blog will have noticed pictures of me eating strawberries popping up here and there, as well as stories of oranges, grapefruits, all kinds of nuts and cacao – how? I’m getting ready to share it all with you – and this is a HUGE part of the recovery process for me – what I’ve been calling breakfast for the last few months: a super duper antihistamine and anti-inflammatory packed juicie.
What I’ll do is juice together all the really fibrous veggies and fruits (supposedly so I’m better able to absorb the vitamins) and then blend in handful after handful of super dark green leafy stuff – you know, the kind you know your body is gasping for.
I can actually feel the inflammation dissipate a few hours after having my daily infusion – no joke!
Fret not about the juices vs. smoothie thing – I’ve asked another expert to weigh in on it for us. I’ll be sharing my interview with the Juice Lady Cherie Calbom – who has appeared on Oprah and collaborated with Dr Oz – this coming week. We get into all kinds of good stuff about detoxing, emotional healing and much more!
I haven’t done my usual breakdown of benefits for this juice because every single ingredient is an antihistamine or anti-inflammatory (some are both). You’ll find more antihistamine and anti-inflammatory foods and recipes in the Anti-Cookbooks (regular and paleo).
