Time

Always start your morning with water (warm is better). After drinking your water, take in your fruits and vegetables. It’s advisable to start your meals with fruits and vegetables because they digest easier than other food. We want the body to absorb the nutritious food first.

Ingredients

There are many ways to do this, but below are the things we put at home:

Carrots, celery, green bell pepper, ampalaya, cucumber, Fuji apple, ginger (this is a personal preference because I like ginger, and it’s strong enough to mask the ampalaya taste). Sometimes I put my protein in this juice or with my berry shake. My current protein is Recovery Greens from The Healthy Grocer (because I ran out of Pure Encapsulations BCAA).

It’s up to you to decide on how much you want to put, but ideally all equal parts (ginger is usually just a small piece since it’s really strong. Everything adds up to about 10oz or 300ml.

Tools

Hurom H26/HAA – Alpha slow juicer (this is better than using power juicers because it includes the fiber from the skin of the fruits).

Notes

I have this every morning. It’s not always easy for me to get salad for all my meals, so it helps to secure my daily vegetable intake.

Happy juicing!

I’ve been diagnosed with an ¬†autoimmune disease ¬†(MCTD – mixed connective tissue disease, predominantly Polymyositis) and have found to be intolerant to gluten, dairy, and shellfish. The recipes shared here are based on what I can take on the daily and what my functional doctor recommends for me based on my condition and deficiencies.¬†
