Celery Juice

Celery Juice is rich in both potassium and sodium, and the following recipes make lovely sweet salty drinks which hit the spot if you’re feeling thirsty.

Celery Juice Recipe with Apples, Broccoli, and Lemon

Delicious mixed with raw apple juice.

Celery Juice Recipes

Ingredients

  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 3 apples
  • 1 stem broccoli (optional)
  • 1/2 lemon (optional)

Directions

  1. Wash the fruit and vegetables using water and a stiff vegetable brush. Keep the leaves on the celery.
  2. Core the apples.
  3. Cut the peel off the lemon – some people like to leave this on but I find this makes the juice too bitter.
  4. Slice the fruit and vegetables to fit your juicer.
  5. Juice and enjoy.

Kidney Cleanse

Kidney Cleanse

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?

It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley (MALLI Leaves) and wash it clean

Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool.

Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before.

Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

Coconut Water

Coconut water! For all you coconuts out there.

For more than 4,000 years, coconut water has been revered as a natural source of nutrition, wellness, beauty and hydration. In times of famine and war, coconut water has been used as an intravenous fluid and saved many lives. It’s the only natural substance that can be safely injected into the human blood stream. Now modern science has validated its effectiveness, especially as a natural sports drink.

Avocado

Avocado hands down is one of my favorite foods. I just love them. Love, love, love….do the happy dance. Avocados are also nutritious. They’re high in healthy fats, potassium, and vitamins B, E, and K. And if you use whole wheat bread for the toast, it’s a great way to provide whole grains.

This is Avocado on toast. Put it on some toasted Sesame Ezekiel Bread, add some greens; watercress, cilantro, spinach, a nice tomato or salsa. Just make to your taste. Such a nice summer food. Yummy! I miss Southern California for this reason. Avocado’s were plentiful and affordable.

Prevent Berries From Mold

Rinse Berries in a Vinegar Solution to Keep Them Fresh Longer and Mold-Free

It’s pretty disappointing to come home with fresh, scrumptious berries only to find them rotting and covered in mold just a few days later. Cook’s Illustrated says a little vinegar solution can keep that fuzzy mold off your delicate berries and extend their life.

The vinegar and water solution destroys bacteria and mold spores, helping the berries last longer. Here are the instructions for the best way to wash, dry, and store berries:

 

1. Wash berries in bowl with 3 cups water mixed with 1 cup white vinegar. Drain in colander and rinse under running water.

2. Place berries in salad spinner lined with 3 layers of paper towels. Spin for 15 seconds or until berries are completely dry.

3. Store berries in paper towel-lined sealable container, keeping lid slightly open to allow excess moisture to escape.

 

Alternately, you could just dunk berries in hot water to give them a few extra days of mold-free life, but the vinegar rinse might be more effective. Reddit user am4zon reports that using a vinegar rinse helps raspberries last a week or more and strawberries almost two weeks.

 

If you have any fresh produce hacks of your own, share them with us in the comments.
