A few weeks ago a piece of research was released in the journal “Preventing Chronic Disease” which revealed the 41 most powerhouse fruits and vegetables
(See my full post on the research here: 41 Powerhouse Alkaline Foods)
They were ranked based on vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content, as well as a number of other measures.
And, no surprise: 38 of the 41 foods were highly alkaline forming.
And also no surprise, the top 15 were ALL leafy green vegetables!
So to honour that research, and give you a HUGE energy boost, I have created a new juice: The Powerhouse Juice.
This juice features the TOP FIVE most powerful foods in the world, alongside the other awesome alkaline foods carrot, beetroot and the highly anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial ginger.
And here it is:
The Alkaline Powerhouse Juice
This is possibly the best juice on earth!
- 2 handfuls watercress
- 2 large leaves of Chinese cabbage
- 3 large chard (silver beet) leaves
- 2 small beetroots including greens
- 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
- 1 inch of root ginger
- 1 carrot
- 300ml coconut water (or filtered water)
Wash the leaves thoroughly (remove the leaves from the beetroot), especially if not organic. If you have a Chanson Ionizer, you should soak the ingredients in the strongest alkaline water for 15 minutes to remove all pesticides and infuse with more antioxidants.
If not, then simply give the leaves a very thorough wash.
If not organic, peel the carrot and ginger and the beetroot itself.
Next, simply juice all of the ingredients!
Add the coconut, or filtered, water at the end. If you have a masticating juicer then you can pour the coconut water through it at the end. This will push through any remaining juice, which is great, and also the water will start the cleaning process too!
Enjoy as quickly as possible to get the maximum nutrient content, and be satisfied in the knowledge that you’ve just consumed approximately 6-7 serves of the most nutrient-dense, alkaline, immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, energy-boosting foods on Earth!
