Many have long touted the health benefits of juicing. Most people do not get enough of the essential vitamins and minerals in their daily diet. When looking at ways to relieve stress, giving attention to physical health is a great way to defend the body against stress. Juicing can help to relieve stress by fortifying your body with natural vitamins and minerals and give your body the raw unprocessed sources of those essential vegetables that most of us do not get enough of in our diets. Below is a recipe for a great stress busting and overall healthy juice. This is an amazing and great tasting drink that will alleviate and fortify your body against daily stresses and illnesses.
The Stress Buster Juice Ingredients (The below ingredients are enough for a large size mug or tall glass. You can adjust the below amounts accordingly or change the quantities of the individual ingredients.)
3 whole carrots
4 stalks of celery
1/2 of a whole beet
2 cloves of raw garlic (If you prefer a “virgin” Stress Buster due to bad breath prevention, the juice will still taste delicious by excluding the garlic, however, the health benefits of garlic are worth its negative breath effects.)
1/4-1/4+ cup of 100% lemon juice
1). Prepare and wash your carrots, celery, and beet. You do not have to peel the carrots but be sure and cut any bad places out of the carrots or the ends of the celery.
2). Using your juicer, juice the carrots.
3). Next, juice the 1/2 of the beet. You will want to juice the beet next because this allows for the celery juice to “wash” all of the beet out of your juicer.
4). Next, take your 4 stalks of celery as well as the 2 cloves of garlic and juice them together. Juicing these two ingredients together is a key step in the process. If you juice the garlic by itself, it will not juice very well. Juicing it with the celery allows the juicer to pulverize the garlic better and get more of the garlic extract into your final juice.
5. After finishing juicing the ingredients above, pour your 1/4 cup of lemon juice into your glass. You can increase or decrease the amount of lemon juice if you prefer more or less tart flavor.
The above recipe is unbelievably delicious! It is amazing how your body feels after drinking the juice. Most people describe a rush of well being after finishing the Stress Buster and many say they feel that it is just what their body needed if they are feeling run down or on the verge of becoming sick.
Juicing is a great way to restore a healthy balance to our bodies as most of us do not take in enough of the raw and unprocessed foods that our bodies desperately need to defend us against stress, anxiety, and illnesses. Take the time to juice for better health. Your body will thank you for it!
