But, when ingested, meat releases acids that results in acidifying your body.

Juice Mixology: Green Ginger Sour

Juice recipe

Healthy juice doesn’t have to taste bad, and you don’t need a lot of exotic ingredients either. Try this recipe for those who like to pucker up.

 

1 cucumber (hydrates, detoxifies)

1 fist full of celery (lowers blood pressure, cleans kidneys)

1 Granny Smith apple (full of antioxidants)

1 large wheel of peeled ginger (stomach tonic, relieves arthritis)

 

If you don’t have organic produce, soak all ingredients in 9.5 pH alkaline water from your H2O Alkalizer to remove any residue or pesticide. If you don’t own a water ionizer, soak celery in baking soda water for ten minutes. Scrub cucumbers and apples with baking soda applied directly to the skin. Rinse well and chop in chunks sized for your juicer.

 

Chilled vegetables and fruits make a more refreshing drink. This juice recipe is great to open the appetite, cleanse your organs, and wake you up!

 

Serves one person.
