Kris’s Beauty Detox Elixir
You can make this at home if you have a juicer, or you can have it prepared at a
health-food store. I find it helps to give this list of ingredients to the person doing the juicing for easier ordering.
You will need:
1 3-inch wedge of cabbage
½ large beet
1 large carrot
1 unpeeled lemon
1 small jalapeño (remove seeds)
A couple bunches of dark greens (parsley, spinach, kale, watercress, etc.)
*A thumb sized piece of ginger root can be used if you do not want the jalapeño.
Scrub, don’t peel your produce.
Then cut everything up and run it all through a juicer.
**The benefits of this drink are out of this world: Cabbage heals the stomach lining. Beet is a terrific blood cleanser and wonderful for the skin. Dark greens are the ultimate detoxifiers and bone builders. Carrots are loaded with skin, vision, and body-healing carotenoids. Lemon alkalizes the body, and the peel is loaded with bioflavoids. Ginger improves circulation and digestion. Jalapeno increases circulation.
