Waldorf Juice Recipe

by | May 29, 2024 | Lunch Juice

Description

The classic Waldorf salad inspired this juice recipe, making a tasty lunchtime juice. It combines the essence of crisp celery, the refreshing zest of parsley, the sweetness of fresh apples, and the nutty richness of walnuts.

I often look at salads, soups, and desserts and wonder how this could be replicated as a juice recipe.

The Waldorf salad is a tasty healthy option and this juice recipe is even better. Packed with nutrients and bursting with flavor, it is not just a juice, but a celebration of healthy ingredients coming together in perfect synergy.

 

Happy Juicing!

Taste

Sweet, nutty and herbal with a light creamy texture, so good!

Ingredients

  • 6 celery stalks
  • 1 handful parsley
  • 2 red apples
  • 2 tbsp walnuts

Juicing Time: 4 mins
Juice Qty: 750ml
Serves:  3

Preparation

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

Parsley

  • Roughly chop leaves and stems
  • Juice handfuls at a time

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

Walnuts

  • No preparation needed
  • Juice whole

Cold Press Juicing Method

Make sure you start this juice recipe with the walnuts.

You need them in the juicer first so the apples pick up the nutty flavour when they get juiced next.

Add the apples to the juicer one at a time letting them press through before adding the next apple.

Next juice the parsley. Add the entire handful to the juicer.

Juice the celery stalks last. 

 

Tip: if you want a creamier texture then soak the walnuts overnight before juicing them

 

AUTO10 Layering: walnuts, parsley, apple, celery

Health Benefits

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.

Parsley

Parsley is an excellent herb to replenish you when you’re depleted and feeling exhausted. Parsley is in a class of its own because of its skill at alkalizing all the body systems. Used on a regular basis, parsley can alkalize the entire body, driving out the acidity. The herb is an all-purpose pathogen-fighter; it keeps bacteria, parasites, and fungus at bay. This herb is sometimes called a “chemoprotective” plant because it helps protect DNA from damage and stops cell mutation.

Nutrition: Parsley is full of nutrition, including B vitamins such as folic acid, vitamins A, C, K, and of course plenty of iron.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Parsley is high in antioxidants, including flavonoids, carotenoids, and vitamin C, which help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, both of which are linked to heart disease. It is also a good source of vitamin K, which plays a role in blood clotting and may help prevent the hardening of arteries. Some studies suggest that parsley may help lower blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease.

Nervous System: Parsley is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin C and flavonoids, which help protect nerve cells from damage caused by free radicals, potentially reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases. It is also an excellent herb to help you replenish you when you are feeling depleted and exhausted.

Respiratory System: Parsley is rich in vitamin C, which is important for immune function and respiratory health. Vitamin C helps protect the lungs from infections and may reduce the severity of respiratory symptoms. Parsley contains antioxidants, such as flavonoids and carotenoids, which help reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract and protect against oxidative stress. Parsley has been traditionally used as an expectorant, helping to loosen mucus and phlegm in the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough up and expel.

Sensory System: Parsley is amazing for anything mouth-related too such as gum disease, tooth decay, and dry mouth, as it impedes the growth of unproductive microorganisms there.

Skeletal System: Parsley is good for the skeletal system due to its vitamin K content. Vitamin K plays a crucial role in bone health by assisting in the modification of osteocalcin, a protein involved in bone mineralization. Adequate vitamin K intake has been associated with a reduced risk of fractures and improved bone density. Additionally, parsley contains other nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C, which also contribute to bone health.

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.

Walnuts

Walnuts are one of the most antioxidant rich foods and are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory properties and are known to help prevent strokes, diabetes, and coronary artery disease.

Walnuts are also high in B-complex vitamins and minerals such as copper, iron, manganese, zinc, calcium, and selenium.

Walnuts are particularly beneficial for cognitive health and are generally regarded as an excellent “brain food”. Walnuts can also calm the nervous system and increase your sense of well being and peace.
