Healthy Drinks

More and more people are interested in losing weight – and it makes sense! About a third of Americans are obese and another third are simply overweight. I have good news and bad news.

The bad news? Losing weight isn’t an easy task. It takes a lot of hard work at eating well and getting plenty of exercise and rest.

But the good news? I know of a miracle drink that’ll help blast the fat right off of you! Let’s get down to it:

You will need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of organic, fresh squeezed lemon juice

Instructions:

Simply place all of the ingredients in a blender, blend well, and serve. You can keep the beverage refrigerated if you don’t drink all of it.

In addition to helping you speed your metabolism, this drink can help lower blood pressure, balance good bacteria in the gut, and help your body digest the healthy food you’ve been eating.

Good luck with your weight loss goals and enjoy!

This juice was actually invented by Dr. Oz to cure a lot of different ailments, but one ingredient stands out: parsley. Parsley helps inhibit the body’s release of histamines when exposed to allergens, which is why it’s been used for centuries by naturopathic healers for allergies, sinus congesion, sinusitis and the common cold. This is a great juice to start with too if you’ve just begun juicing.

You will need:

  • 2 medium organic apples
  • 3 stalks of organic celery
  • 1 organic cucumber
  • ½ a thumb of organic ginger root
  • ½ an organic lemon
  • 1 organic lime
  • 1 bunch of organic parsley
  • 2 cups of organic spinach

In addition, this recipe can help you fight high blood pressure and arthritis, ease feelings of depression, and give your libido a little boost. Hubba hubba!

You might find this recipe to be a little bit earthy tasting in flavor, but it’s still delightfully sweet and easy to drink. Oprah called this juice recipe a “glass of fresh!” and I find myself agreeing. To make this juice, simply process all of the ingredients in your juicer, stir, and enjoy! Hopefully this will help you get through your allergy seasons.

Acne is the scourge of our teen years and simply annoying for adults. But it turns out, acne isn’t just hormones but has a little bit to do with what we consume. This juice is especially potent against acne because of its high vitamin C content and other rich nutrients carried in the carrots. These nutrients help fight off bacteria and nourish the skin, preventing dryness and blemishes.

This juice is also useful against bloating, prevent strokes, lowering high bad cholesterol, and can even help ease indigestion a bit. Let’s get to it.
You will need:

  • 3 tablespoons of chopped organic basil
  • 14 medium organic carrots
  • ½ an organic lemon
  • 5 medium organic peaches

You may want to juice in this order for the best flavor: basil, lemon, peaches, carrots. As with any juicing recipe, process in your juicer, stir it up, and enjoy your clear skin!
