The 3 C’s Juice Recipe
This juice recipe supports a healthy digestive system. Carrot, Cabbage and Celery are all known to greatly assist the stomach and intestines – which is why I call it Three C’s.
This recipe is mild on the digestive system and palatable to drink especially when you are feeling ‘out to sea’ (i.e. great for nausea). The flavour is sweet and a little bitter with a pungent aroma that is distinctively cabbage.
- 6 carrots
- 1/4 cabbage
- 3 celery stalks
Juicing Time: 6 mins
Juice Qty: 750ml
- Cut carrots lengthwise down the center
- Juice with skin on
- Note: If larger carrots are used cut lengthwise again, into long quarters
- Cut into slices about 5cm wide
- Chop into pieces small enough to fit down the chute
- Chop into small thumb size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it wrapping around the press)
- You can juice celery leaves, however it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like the flavour
Juice the cabbage first. The pieces will make lots of noise when they are pressed through the juicer so don’t be alarmed if it is loud, it is perfectly okay.
Next start adding the carrot halves. The first one or two will help push and remaining cabbage leaves through. Go slowly with the carrots making sure each piece is fully pressed before adding more.
Finish with the celery. Once cut you can add them in handfuls at a time.
Tip: the fresher the carrots the more juice you will extract and less pulp will end up in the juice.
Abundantly available in Autumn and Winter the humble, inexpensive, and readily available cabbage is a must have on your list of juicing ingredients. It has a mild flavour and pairs well with apples and oranges.
Cabbage juice is loaded with nutrients, such as vitamins C and K, and drinking it is linked to many benefits, including weight loss, improved gut health, decreased inflammation, balanced hormones, and body detoxification.
One of the best-researched health benefits of cabbage juice is its ability to heal ulcers. The high content of glutamine in cabbage, an amino acid that is the preferred fuel for the cells that line the stomach and small intestine, is likely the reason for cabbage juice’s efficacy in healing ulcers.
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.
Celery is technically a herb however we eat it and cook it like a vegetable.
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 is a summary of the main benefits mentioned in the book:
- fights autoimmune disease
- flushes out Strep bacteria
- assist with acid reflux
- kills Epstein-Barr & Shingles virus
- raise hydrochloric acid levels
- improve brain function
- restores adrenal fatigue
- flushes out liver toxins
- reduces liver heat
