I ate pizza the other night, and felt a little out of whack, to say the least. I juiced up this s'blended concoction before I went to bed, and again when I woke up the next morning, and was back on track.
Lemons, limes, cucumber, and celery are four of the most alkalizing foods on the planet, and green apple has the lowest sugar content of all varieties. As you get used to the flavor of the asparagus, you can reduce the quantity of apple to lower the sugar content even further. I started Scott on this blend with 1 apple, then reduced it to 1/2 an apple, then 1/4, and then no apple. This juice is most alkaline forming without the apple. Make sure you use green apples, which typically have the lowest sugar content.
Pick up some alcohol-free lemon stevia for your juices. This stevia is one of the best I've used. Just a few drops sweetens tart juice blends and smoothies.
