Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

 

 

Today I'm making 2 recipes from my dear friend Philip McCluskey's newly re-edited and re-released book - Raw Food Juice Bar!  As Philip is preparing to embark on his tour of Australia, he is also graciously offering two digital copies of his book to two lucky Raw Food Rehab members.  You can learn more about Philip on his websire: www.PhilipMcCluskey.com

 

FRESH FENNEL

Philip loves the sweet, licorice flavor that fennel adds to his green juice. This is lovely with an apple tossed in as well.

1 SMALL FENNEL BULB

2 SMALL CUCUMBERS

1 HANDFUL MINT

1/2 SMALL LEMON DIRECTIONS

Juice all ingredients, serve and enjoy!

 

GREEN TRANSFUSION

This drink is like a shot of green electrolyte energy. Perfect to accompany your intense cardio or weight training.

2 - 4 CUPS OF COCONUT WATER

1 - 2 TABLESPOONS OF SPIRULINA

1 PINCH OF SEA SALT

1 - 2 TABLESPOONS OF CHLORELLA (OPTIONAL)

1 DROPPER OF STEVIA (OPTIONAL)

Hand stir and enjoy!

 

As promised - here's the low-down on Chlorella & Spirulina.  Each has a unique nutritional profile. Although I love them both - check out the scoop:

 

Chlorella:

  • A better source of chlorophyll, which makes it more detoxifying and cleansing.
  • It is especially good for people with liver disorders or people who drink or smoke.
  • It is very helpful for people with dry stools who suffer from constipation.
  • It is especially good for people who need "rebuilding" -- people who suffer from degenerative diseases (muscle, nervous system, etc.) or people who are frail.
  • Contains Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), which boosts the immune system, reverses cancer, and offers other health benefits.
  • CGF also help repair nerve tissues throughout the body and is excellent for treating degenerative brain and nerve disorders

 

Spirulina:

  • A superior source of digestible protein. Contains 12 times the protein of beef.
  • Easier on the digestive system than chlorella, which can cause diarrhea in sensitive individuals.
  • The best source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a "good" fat necessary for the human brain, proper heart function, and other body systems.
  • Contains phycocyanin, a potent anti-cancer phytochemical that also gives spirulina its characteristic blue hue.

Both chlorella and spirulina offer a vast range of health benefits, and many of their strengths overlap. As a general rule, you should consume spirulina and chlorella in a 2:1 ratio. In other words, if you take 10 grams of spirulina a day, take 5 grams of chlorella, too.

ENJOY!  And please holler at us in the comments below for your chance to win a copy of Philip's awesome book!

I love the look of that juice! I am not a fan of fennel as I  understand that it is licorice flavor! Love that it wasnt strong as I want to get it in somehow!!

 

I'm SO in! Fennel + apple is Divine!  And I'm so glad you showed how to open a young coconut -- I was using the other tip of the knife, and struggling a bit...xo Carole

Great ideas, I love fennel so that is a 'try me' for sure. I've never heard to combine Spirulina & Chlorella before so I will have to read up on that; thanks so much for the head's up! Have a delightful Labor Day weekend and enJOY your daughter's time at home; blessings!
Both these recipes look so good! Looking forward to trying them.  Enjoy the weekend everyone and Be Safe!
GREAT video! I'm definitely going to try the Fresh Fennel recipe (I have a really moody tummy) and now I'm pretty interested in testing out the Green Transfusion too!
