1/2 Inch of Fresh Root Ginger
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper Per Person
Optional: coconut water or plain, filtered water to dilute to taste
First, in a (preferably masticating, slow, cold press juicer) juice the peeled grapefruit, spinach, carrot, tomatoes, cucumber, celery and ginger
Pour the coconut or filtered water through the juicer to add the water and wash through any remaining juice in the juicer at the same time
Stir this to mix the flavours, and then stir in the cayenne pepper
For the MCT oils, this is basically a medium-chain triglyceride oil (saturated fat) – and I have included some notes on this below. If you have got an MCT supplement, such as Bulletproof’s Brain Octane Oil, just stir it in. If you don’t have this, either add in a tablespoon of melted coconut oil per person, or have a tablespoon of coconut oil off the spoon, washing it down with the juice!
Basically saturated fats have been proven to increase the metabolism, lower blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol (while raising good cholesterol), while at the same time strengthening the skin, reducing skin inflammation and giving the skin a soft, supple feel.
The myth that saturated fats cause heart conditions has been disproven so impressively thoroughly. Not only are they NOT bad for you but they’re actually GREAT for you and so many of us are now chronically deficient.
Start getting in your omega 3s and your saturated fats (I personally believe coconut oil should be the basis of this) and you’ll really see and feel a difference.
