ABC Lunch Juice Recipe
Description and Health Benefits
The Broccoli in this juice adds a nice smooth texture without over balancing the flavour. It is crisp and clean, everything you want from a green juice. I like it for lunch time because it has a high water content to keep you hydrated.
How much raw broccoli do you eat each week?
Probably not much yet Broccoli is an amazing super-food full of vitamins A, C, D, K, calcium, potassium plus healthful flavonoids and even natural Co-enzyme Q10 all of which are in the juice. You don’t have to chew on it like a rabbit to get all the benefits.
Broccoli like Cauliflower & Cabbage all have “sulforaphane” that enhances production of phase II enzymes which help remove carcinogens from cells.
Broccoli also contains Valine as an essential amino acid the promotes mental vigor, muscle coordination and calms the emotions.
The National Cancer Institute in America claims that broccoli may reduce the risk of breast cancer. This is due to the chemical indole, that has been found to increase the excretion of oestrogen linked to breast cancer.
I think once you try broccoli in juice you will be a big fan.
Apple (15 sec)
- Remove the stems and remove any stickers
- Juice apples whole with skin and seeds.
- Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute.
Broccoli (30 sec)
- Cut off the stem
- Cut the stem into quarters lengthwise
- Break the florets up into small chunks to fit in the wide chute
Cucumber (5 sec)
- Cut in chunks to fit down the chute
- Juice with skin on
Celery (30 sec)
- Chop into small pieces (5cm) across the stalks to cut the long stringy fibre
- You can juice the leaves if you like the bitter taste otherwise discard
Juice the cucumber first because they are the softest ingredient. Let the machine chew each piece before adding the next one.
Next juice the broccoli slowly letting the machine grind through the hard stem and florets.
Now you can juice the celery one handful at a time going again letting the machine chew through all the pieces. Finish with the whole apples to really push through all the ingredients.
Juicing Time: 4 mins
Juice Qty: 1500ml
Tip: juice the broccoli stems and eat the florets (lightly steam and sprinkle with soy sauce!). The stem is where you will get most juice and also find most of the nutrients.
