Oh my!...So nice to drink a glass of chilled fruit and vegetable juice every morning. This is Anticancer Fruit and Vegetable Juice. I got this recipe from Dr. Tom Wu's books. There are so many recipes in his books but this is an easy one with just three main key ingredients, beet, carrot and tomato. Makes 500cc juice each time, drink at least twice a day, morning before breakfast and evening before dinner. Peel unless they are organic.
1 small Beet (if medium size, use 1/2 beet)
1 medium size Carrot
2 medium size Tomato, use only red tomato.
1 glass (250ml) Drinking Water
I use distilled water for juicing. Dr. Wu used distilled water in his recipes. You can find his books in Popular Bookshops, Ikano Power, Sunway Pyramid and Vegetarian Organic Restaurant SS/18, Subang Jaya. You will get the answer why distilled water.
Fresh Beet Root, use only the root. Beets are very nutritious and their bright color is a nice touch to any meal. Their sweetness makes them different from most vegetables, and the sugar beet is the sweetest of all. Beet root has high concentrations of folic acid and manganese, and the roots are very high in fiber as well. The greens will give you added vitamins A and C.
Therapeutic benefits: Beetroot juice is very powerful and should always be consumed in small quantities and usually mixed with other juices, such as apple, carrot, cucumber and celery.
It is an excellent purifier and cleanser of the blood and is effective in cleaning out the liver, kidneys and arteries.
Due to the high amounts of natural sugars that beetroot juice contains, it is thoroughly energising, although should be avoided by diabetics.
It is also good for digestive problems such as constipation and it strengthens the bones, which is helpful for people as they get older and their bones become weaker.
Carrot, they are a versatile vegetable that can be eaten raw or cooked. Grated carrots can add some extra vitamins to breads and muffins too. Carrots are particularly high in beta-carotene (vitamin A), fiber and vitamin C. You get the most nutrition out of carrots if you leave the peels on.
Therapeutic benefits: Carrot juice is an excellent tonic for just about every ailment imaginable. It can be consumed in large quantities as well. It is particularly effective in preventing cataracts and other eye problems, as well as energising, cleansing and healing the body faster.
Carrot juice boosts the immune system and protects against disease. It helps to treat anaemia, circulatory problems and skin disorders.
It is good for digestive problems and is an excellent remedy for ulcers, liver problems and asthma. It may help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Tomato, they can be eaten raw or cooked. They are high in vitamins A and C, and are great sources for potassium, vitamin K and even fiber.
Therapeutic benefits: Tomatoes gain a lot of their nutrients from the sun and therefore are highly energising and nutritive. They are excellent for blood disorders and a good tonic for the nervous system. This is particularly beneficial for people who suffer from anxiety, stress, nervousness, insomnia and fatigue.
Tomatoes have the ability to eliminate uric acid from the body and so are an excellent food for people with arthritis, gout and rheumatism.
They are hugely detoxifying and can help with skin disorders such as acne or boils.
