It's DAY 25 of "Green Juicing" to celebrate our amazing Juicer Giveaway. We already have three lucky winners! I will announce the fourth person this weekend. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of the two remaining Juicers. Two more to go!

Today I have a magic turmeric juicing remedy from RAWKSTARS Sheleana Breakell and Caleb Jennings from the Young and Raw blog. This dynamic duo are taking the raw food world by storm! You may remember them from their incredible Raw Vegan Mexican Crackers.

These two health warriors successfully transformed their lives with the power of live foods. Sheleana lost 45lbs, healed her body of infertility, re-balanced her energy from extreme adrenal fatigue, reversed a hormonal imbalance that was threatening her life, and restored her body to optimum health. She and Caleb now dedicate their lives to teaching others how to do the same.

Young and Raw shares valuable information about health and nutrition, raw beauty recipes, and raw and vegan recipes. I really love their smoothies and juices! So, I couldn't host a juicing celebration without inviting them to the party.

This anti-inflammatory turmeric cocktail juice might not be the most palatable juice blend featured this month, but it is powerful! Sheleana likens the version with coconut water to "drinking pickles!" Whilst I am a huge fan of raw coconut water, I decided to feature the green juice version of this cocktail, as I thought it may be more attractive to those of you turmeric newbies!

Whatever you do, don't discount this magic elixir. Turmeric contains magical anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, as well as having natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. It can improve digestion, purifies your blood, lowers cholesterol, heals stomach ulcers, prevents gas and bloating, assists fat metabolism, can help with acne and psoriasis, arthritis, and I could go on and on. It is just incredible.

In her original recipe post, Sheleana posted this juice as a remedy for sore joints and menstrual cramps, as well as a way to reduce inflammation and repair your muscles faster after a workout. I cannot recommend this juice more highly for this. I have used both the coconut water shots and the green juice mixture, and they work a treat! I don't get menstrual cramps since I followed food combining and went alkaline, so I can't personally attest to that. However, if Sheleana says it works, I believe her! Obviously, everybody is different. But, I say, give it a shot! Better than popping those toxic menstrual cramp tablets.

There is just a wealth of information on this site. I could get lost on it for hours. Make sure you join their hugely popular Facebook page as well. Sheleana and Caleb also offer some wonderful programs. Check out their new 21 Day Raw Food Reset Cleanse to get "Clean and Green in 2013."

Sheleana and Caleb, thanks for sharing yet another one of your awesome recipes.
You just RAWK!

Turmeric Cocktail Green Juice

Turmeric Cocktail Green Juice

from Young and Raw

Makes one 16-ounce glass5 MINS
  • 1 inch piece of turmeric root (or 1-2 tsp of ground turmeric powder)
  • 1 whole cucumber
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 inch nob of ginger
  • 1 peeled lemon

Process all ingredients through your juicer.

Enjoy strained or unstrained. Whatever your preference.

Alternatively, you can mix the 1 oz of juiced turmeric root with 1 cup of raw coconut water. This acts a “carrier” delivering more nutrients to the cells.

Drink either version of the turmeric mixture right away and you can do this multiple times per day.
