Recipe: “Sweet Cravings” Buster Juice
This recipe is a real winner because, well, it’s delicious first and foremost, but also because it contains the alkaline minerals you need to completely remove cravings for sugar and sweets!
Alkaline foods are predominantly ‘alkaline’ because of the minerals they contain. Yep, they are high in alkaline minerals!
As I’ve discussed in prior guides about beating cravings, the body’s cry for salt, sugar, bread, fatty foods, and so on is most often a cry for a particular group of minerals, and in the case of sugar and sweet cravings, those minerals are:
And this recipe, with the kale, broccoli, spinach, and parsley, in particular, gives you a great hit of all three of these minerals!
In fact, you will get:
- 60% or more of your RDI of chromium
- 63% or more of your RDI of magnesium
- 36% or more of your RDI of zinc
Not to mention well over the daily needs of calcium, vitamin E, K, C, and A, manganese, folate, and more. It’s super alkaline, and delicious.
And indeed – it makes those cravings disappear pretty quickly!
