Mean Green Juicing Recipe: Road to Wellness

Hi everyone,

This post has been contributed by Leslie Lancaster who left comments on  a post I wrote a while back called Anti-candida, no wheat, no gluten, no dairy no sugar, no nuttin’ diet. I wrote the post when I was having severe stomach problems brought on by candida and as yet undiscovered food intolerances.

Leslie, who has been on her own journey of wellness shared this recipe.

Mean Green

1 bunch of kale (4-6 leaves with stalks)
4 stalks of celery
1 cucumber (peel first unless they’re English cukes)
2 Granny Smith apples (core removed due to pesticide concentration)
1/2 a lemon (peel removed)
ginger root

“I’m now on Day 5 of a juice fast and feel unbelievably good. Sleeping much better without apnea and waking up refreshed with a ton of energy. Am also losing a bunch of weight (almost 20 lbs. already) and my skin is beginning to glow with significant reduction in pore size. Bathroom breaks are more frequent due to drinking eight 8 oz. glasses of water (either plain or with ACV) a day on top of almond milk and six 16 oz. glasses of juice.

I can promise you won’t be hungry simply because your stomach is always full of something and vegetables take up more room than the same quantity protein or fat.

I did transition into this liquid diet for two weeks by eating a diet of primarily vegetables, cutting out caffeine, chocolate and sugar and sticking to the selected carbohydrate diet recommended for SIBO. Since I’m still very determined at this stage, I’m going to set my target for a 10 day juice fast. If all’s well upon reaching that goal, I’ll be going for 30 days. Will keep you apprised.”

Thanks for sharing Leslie and keep us posted on your progress!

I will add my two cents worth  and say that when I cut out dairy, gluten and sugar I never felt so healthy in my life. I no longer eat gluten and eat very little sugar but I love goat cheese and have allowed that to slip back into my life. (I can’t eat cow dairy). So those of you who are going to go for it – trust me the pain of the diet is well worth the effort.

    Giving up dairy is tough for me too. I’ve resolved to give up dairy altogether to ease the strain on my innards and give my immunity the opportunity to heal the damage.

    Note: Ginger is a very strong flavor, however, something about this fragrant root really helps with cramping and spasms and I chew pieces of it like gum to get the juice and keep my jaws busy while on this liquid fast. While the weight loss is truly unbelievable for someone with thyroid problems like myself (1-3 lbs. a day) it’s equally impressive just how much better I feel and look. Really hoping that this nutritional strategy will alleviate some of the neurological effects of post-polio syndrome as well.
