Today is the final episode of Jill’s 3-part journey of surviving breast cancer. In this episode, Jill shares her favorite juice recipes with us. Jill’s commitment to healthy living was solidified during her cancer treatments. She found that juicing could give her body the concentration of healing vitamins, minerals and nutrients that her body needed to heal from the devastating effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
Jill has made juicing part of her daily routine, so we asked her to share her favorite juice recipes with us. If you have not had a chance to listen to part 1 and part 2 of Jill’s story, you will probably want to go back and listen to them first!
Jill’s Favorite Juices:
Super Simple Juice:
2 fennel bulbs
3 pears unless they are asian , then use 2
2 lemons – most nutrition is in the pith, cut the outer layer of skin mostly off and then press the whole lemon with as much *pith on it as possible.
2 inches of ginger
****pith is the white part of the lemon that is just inside the outer layer of skin
Approximate cost is $5 and it will make 2 full servings. It’s delicious.
2 bunches of cilantro (can also be parsley if you don’t like cilantro)
1 jicama – peeled
2 red bell peppers (can use any colored sweet peppers, just not green)
1 whole cucumber
1/4 red onion – be careful because the juice will burn your eyes
1 orange – peeled leaving as much pith as possible
2 or 3 limes
2 stalks of celery
**optional add a small piece of jalapeño, not the inside or seeds. It you get it too hot, wait a day to drink it and the heat will lessen.
Approximate cost $9 and it will make about 4 servings. A little spicy and a little sweet.
Juicing tip: Heat and oxygen degrade nutrients in your juice, so if you want to press a larger batch of juice and preserve the nutrients, you can. Buy mason jars and store fresh juice in small jars so there is less oxygen exposure. Fill it literally to the brim and then seal the mason jar. You don’t have to juice every day. Juice once and pour into small airtight mason jars (have to fill them to the brim so there is no room for oxygen) and it will stay as fresh as possible.
