Clockwork Orange Juice

by | Jun 19, 2024 | Lunch Juice

Description

This juice recipe is a great way to get more raw nutrients into your diet. It has a good balance of veggies and fruits making it a perfect juice for a lunchtime meal.

It’s also much easier to drink a whole sweet potato with 4 stalks of celery and a couple of carrots vs cooking and eating them. Cooking can destroy some of the valuable raw nutrients and enzymes.

Sweet potato juice contains soluble fiber and antioxidants that promote the growth of good gut bacteria and contribute to a healthy gut.

Sweet potato strengthens the spleen and pancreas helping them to remove toxins from the body. They even look like the pancreas and balance the glycemic index of diabetics (sweet hey!)

 

Happy Juicing!

Taste

A delightful blend of sweetness, tanginess, and a hint of spice, making it both refreshing and invigorating.

There is a nice earthiness from the carrots and sweet potato, grounding the juice with a rich, wholesome taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 orange
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 apples, red
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 piece ginger, 2cm

Juicing Time: 5 mins
Juice Qty: 1000ml
Serves:  4

Preparation

Sweet Potato (skin on)

  • Cut in half lengthways then into slices
  • Juice with skin on

Oranges

  • Thinly cut off the orange skin leaving as much white pith as possible
  • Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute

Carrots

  • Cut carrots once lengthwise to release the core
  • Juice with skin on
  • Note: If larger carrots are used cut lengthwise again, into quarters
  • REVO830: no need to cut if they fit in the carrot chute
  • AUTO10: Cut into 2 or 3 pieces across the carrot to fit in the hopper

Apples

  • 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

Celery

  • Chop stalks into small thumb-size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it from wrapping around the press)
  • You can juice celery leaves, however it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like this
  • REVO830: No need to chop into small pieces
  • AUTO10: Cut long pieces to fit in the hopper

Ginger

  • Wash and dry
  • Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on

Cold Press Juicing Method

Start with the celery pieces then juice the apples.

Next juice the ginger pieces.

Add the sweet potato slices 3-4 at a time letting the juicer crunch and press before adding the next lot.

After the sweet potato has finished juicing add the carrot slices one at a time. Again let the juicer press each carrot slice before adding the next piece.

Finish the juice with the orange to push through all the beautiful carrot and sweet potato juice. 

 

Tip: make sure you wash the sweet potato before juicing as its good to keep the skin on for more nutrients.

 

AUTO10 Layering: orange, apple, sweet potato, carrot, celery, ginger

Health Benefits

Sweet Potato

Sweet Potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function.

Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.

Carrot

Carrots are well known in juicing circles as the anti-cancer kings of the vegetable world. They contain antioxidants including alpha-carotene, lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene to name a few. Beta-carotene is the main nutrients when it comes to its cancer preventing properties. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. It is believed that beta-carotene can break down the protective mucous membrane around cancer cells.

Carrot juice is also an effective natural remedy for an ulcer in the stomach. When carrots are juiced, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the intestines.

Ginger

Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.

Ginger is like every's favourite Auntie (anti). Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-nausea, anti-bacterial.

Ginger will support your overall immune system, so is great to use during the winter months, to help fight off colds. Gingerols in ginger cause a rapid and noticeable widening of the blood vessel walls and in turn helps to enhance circulation and also lower blood pressure.

Ginger also has its own signature variety of vitamin C and helps bring the body out of a reactive state when you’re sick.

Orange

Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols. Oranges are not only a juicy and refreshing fruit but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why oranges are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Oranges are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals that support overall health.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of colds, flu, and other illnesses. Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.

Digestive System: Oranges are a good source of fibre, which can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation. The fibre in oranges also helps support a healthy gut microbiome.

Cardiovascular/Circulatory System: Oranges are rich in antioxidants like flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. The potassium in oranges can also help regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Nervous System: Oranges contain vitamin B6, which is important for the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a role in mood regulation and can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Respiratory System: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, which can help support respiratory health. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections like the common cold. Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in oranges, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Oranges can also be used topically to improve skin tone and texture.

Skeletal System: Oranges are a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization and can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Eye Health: Oranges contain nutrients like vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. These nutrients can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Celery

Celery is technically a herb however we eat it and cook it like a vegetable.

Celery is a versatile vegetable that offers numerous health benefits, thanks to its unique nutritional profile.

Celery juice is very alkalising in the body, which is extremely important after a good workout to help flush lactic acid from the body.

If you want to learn about the amazing benefits of drinking celery juice I highly recommend the book titled "Celery Juice" by Anthony William.

Here's why celery is good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Celery is low in calories but rich in essential nutrients such as vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, and folate. It also contains antioxidants like flavonoids, beta carotene, and vitamin C.

Cardiovascular System: Celery contains compounds called phthalides, which have been shown to help lower blood pressure by relaxing the muscles around arteries and allowing blood vessels to dilate. The high potassium content in celery can also help regulate blood pressure levels.

Digestive System: Celery is an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system. Fiber helps regulate bowel movements, prevents constipation, and may reduce the risk of digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and diverticulitis.

Immune System: Celery contains antioxidants like vitamin C and flavonoids, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants can help strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Skeletal System: Celery benefits the skeletal system through several key nutrients and properties. It is a good source of vitamin K, essential for bone health as it helps regulate bone mineralization and synthesizes osteocalcin, a protein that binds calcium to the bone matrix, strengthening bones. While not extremely high in calcium, celery still provides a small amount of this crucial mineral, necessary for maintaining bone density and strength. Celery also contains silicon, a trace mineral that supports bone strength and flexibility by playing a role in the formation of collagen, vital for bone and connective tissue health.

Additionally, celery has anti-inflammatory properties due to its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, such as flavonoids and polyphenols, which help reduce inflammation and protect bone health. Proper hydration is essential for maintaining healthy bones and joints, and celery’s high water content contributes to overall hydration, supporting joint health by keeping the synovial fluid, which cushions joints, adequately supplied.

 

Inflammatory Response: Celery contains compounds like luteolin and polyacetylenes, which have anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to various chronic diseases.

Detoxification: Celery is a natural diuretic, which means it can help flush out toxins from the body by increasing urine production. It also contains compounds that may help stimulate liver enzymes, which are involved in detoxification processes.

Apple

Apples are the "Queen of the Fruits". The old saying "an apple a day..." is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell. Apples are a true healing food.

Nutrition: Apples contain vitamins C and K, as well as potassium. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while vitamin K is important for blood clotting and bone health. Potassium is essential for heart health and muscle function. Apples are rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and polyphenols. These compounds may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.

All Systems: Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Apples contain nutrients like vitamin C and potassium, which are important for heart health. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while potassium helps regulate blood pressure. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Digestive System: Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels. Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.

Nervous System: They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word 'malic' comes from the Latin word 'malum', meaning 'apple' which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.
