It is DAY 7 of "Green Juicing With Omega" to celebrate our AMAZING Omega Juicer Giveaway. Enter for your chance to win one of FIVE Omega Vert VRT350 Masticating Juicers. Today, we continue with a spectacular juice creation from the incomparable raw food maven, Meredith Baird and her partner, rawkstar chef, Matthew Kenney. Their innovative spin on the classic Breuss Juice Formula ROCKS!
Meredith says of this juice, "The Austrian naturopath doctor, Rudolph Breuss developed this juice consisting of beets, carrots, celery, radish, and potatoes in specific ratios to provide a balance of basic elements required for the body's nourishment. This juice is used as part of a 42-day fast for total cancer treatment. The intended effect is to starve cancer cells. No matter what your intention, this is a balanced, powerfully detoxifying juice. We recommend this juice as an on-the-go lunch replacement. Using parsnip in the recipe really helps round the flavor, but it can be eliminated if you can't find fresh. We also use daikon radish in our recipe, but you can use 2-3 regular spring radishes if you can't find daikon."
Meredith has included this tasty and powerful tonic in her soon-to-be-released book, EVERYDAY RAW DETOX. It will be available on March 1st, 2013. She kindly sent me an advanced copy so I could choose a couple of recipes to feature this month, and let me tell you.....this book is AMAZING. If you want to be inspired to detox, THIS is the book. As usual with Meredith and Matthew, this latest book is class all the way. With stunning photography from Adrian Mueller, enticing decriptions, and valuable information about ingredients, juicing and blending techniques, this book will get you excited about being the best healthy version of yourself, and getting "Clean and Green in 2013."
