Health Benefits of Juicing

Being a vegetarian for the last 23 years has forced me to look into

different diets and ways to eat right and stay healthy. Recently my appetite

has decreased, but as the day went along I was feeling tired and would have

cravings late at night. I was looking for an easy and effective way to do

something good for my body and a way to stop the night cravings. Juicing in

the morning and mid day proved to be a great help. Therefore I would like to

share some benefits of juicing with all of The Jewish Hostess readers.

The many health benefits of juicing far exceed those of eating solid fruits and


For one thing, the body can quickly absorb larger amounts of

nutrients from juices than from solid foods because the process of digestion

that is necessary when you eat whole foods is bypassed. Raw fruits and

vegetables contain many substances that enhance health, and juicing

benefits the body by providing the most concentrated and readily absorbed

source of these substances.

Another one of the major health benefits of juicing is that it is an easy way

to get beneficial enzymes, which are primarily found in raw foods, into

the body. Enzymes in fresh fruits and vegetables have the vital role of

converting food into body tissue and energy. Enzymes are also involved in

metabolism, so one of the more valuable health benefits of juicing is that it

can increase metabolic rate. Juicing also ensures that the body is getting

sufficient amounts of phytochemicals, substances in plants that are

considered among the most powerful ways to fight disease. While most

people do not eat enough raw fruits and vegetables to obtain the amount of

phytochemicals that would make a difference, it is relatively easy to drink

enough juice to obtain sufficient amounts of these powerful nutrients. In

addition, antioxidants and other immune enhancing properties are

concentrated in juices.

Juicing can therefore help to accelerate recovery from illness. In fact, juicing

with specific combinations of fruits or vegetables can target particular

conditions and improve or alleviate symptoms.

Among the most interesting health benefits of juicing are its anti-aging

benefits and its potential for alleviating symptoms of depression. The

effects of juicing on depression are accomplished by providing a

concentrated source of minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium,

and folic acid. Deficiencies of these nutrients are associated with symptoms

of depression.

Further, the concentration of antioxidants in juices combats the

damaging effects that free radicals have on skin and muscle. Juicing can

help keep skin free from wrinkles and muscles well toned. In addition,

increasing the intake of antioxidants by juicing can slow the onset of age-

related illnesses.

Juicing is relatively cost effective and convenient. By staying

healthy as a result of increasing your intake of fresh juices, you can also

reduce the need for expensive medications. Since there are no side effects

associated with juicing, you can drink as much juice as you are able to

tolerate, thereby maximizing health benefits. There are many tasty

combinations of fruits and vegetables, and the variety of juices that can be

prepared are likely to keep you in the habit of juicing once you realize the

many health benefits that doing so can provide.

In addition, fruit and vegetable juices are good sources of the traditional

nutrients. Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, etc.) provide healthy portions of

vitamin C. Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of

beta carotene. A number of green juices are a good source of vitamin E.

Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper,

potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium, which are bound by the plant in

a form that is most easily assimilated during digestion.

Plus, since juicing removes the indigestible fiber, these nutrients are

available to the body in much larger quantities than if the piece of fruit or

vegetable was eaten whole. For example, because many of the nutrients are

trapped in the fiber, when you eat a raw carrot, you are only able to

assimilate about 1% of the available beta carotene. When a carrot is juiced,

removing the fiber, nearly 100% of the beta carotene can be assimilated.

Finally, fruits and vegetables provide one more substance that is absolutely

essential for good health – water. More than 65% of most of the cells in the

human body are made of water, and in some tissues, for example the brain,

the cells can be made up of as much as 80% water. Water is absolutely

essential for good health, yet most people don’t consume enough water each

day. Plus, many of the fluids we do drink, coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcoholic

beverages and artificially flavored drinks each contain substances that

require extra water for your body to eliminate. Fruit and vegetable juices are

free of these unneeded substances and are full of pure, clean water.

Refreshing Sugar Free Grapefruit Granita

Refreshing Sugar Free Grapefruit Granita

1 Comment 07 May 2010

This granita recipe is so simple and refreshing.
Typically you would use a sugar syrup with fruit, but this is simply fruit.

  1. Juice a few grapefruits or oranges
  2. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish; cover with plastic.
  3. Freeze until mixture begins to set, about 30 minutes. Scrape icy particles from sides, stir with a fork, and return to freezer.
  4. Repeat scraping and stirring every 30 minutes until mixture is frozen with a grainy texture, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  5. You can add a kick to the granita with a splash of your favorite liqueur. I happened to have pineapple vodka and it was great. experiment with what ever you have.
  6. Garnish with fresh mint.

Sugar Detox Day 9 and 10

Sugar Detox Day 9 and 10

1 Comment 18 April 2010

Hi Detoxers,

This week, I  had the privilege of accidentally being included in a chat session with a bunch of girls that are on our “30 Day Detox Challenge!” I was SO impressed by the support and dedication that they were giving each other. I couldn’t believe what was going on…questions, answers, thoughts, and  simply being there for each other. It truly brought tears to my eyes. It was a wake up call to me…as I was reading, I was thinking “this is really happening!”  Its not just a bunch of emails. There are really groups of girls that are really  coming out of their comfort zone… changing the way they are eating, and looking to make long lasting changes for the betterment of their health and wellness. Who knows how this is going to snow ball. All I can say is “Hooray to US!”

A major part of the success of this challenge is your “e-mail buddy”
I’m still pairing people up, so send me a note if you need help!

I’m  receiving such exciting feedback  on how  women on the Detox are beginning to gain awareness of what foods are being put in their bodies-more awareness than ever before!
For instance, a bite of “this” and taste of “that,” – usually the thought was, oh, its only a little piece of cookie…cake..etc..

Most people never realized the hidden sugars that are found in many foods like breads, dressings and white rice sushi. Others are just amazed at how well they are doing!

Here is the question of the day:
 Can I use cane juice or cane fiber? How about honey? After researching a little, this is what I came up with:

”One hundred grams of dried cane juice is pretty much the same thing as 100 grams of other sweeteners, no matter what you call it,” says a nutritionist at the respected Bastyr University, in Seattle, Washington.

“Dehydrated cane juice is sugar. It simply sounds like a whole food.”

 The author thinks that virtually every commonly used sweetener is as bad as sugar when it makes up a significant part of the diet.

Albeit, evaporated cane juice does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does. 
It’s benefits is that it does retain trace vitamins and minerals. 
Cane juice has the same amount of calories as sugar but since its  sweeter, you might get away of using less of it than sugar-which is always good!

There are mixed results about whether honey is better than sugar. It depends on the individuals health and condition. Consider- Honey is a sweet, thick  fluid made by honey bees from the nectar of flowering plants. Honey is sweeter than sugar (100% sucrose), has more calories than sugar and raises the blood sugar even more than white sugar. The plus side is that  raw honey reportedly has medicinal benefits and contains enzymes and small amounts of minerals and B-complex vitamins.

Whether you’re talking about cane sugar, honey, barley malt or Sucanat , they’re all primarily simple sugars, simple carbohydrates.
  People should understand that, if they’re eating 150 pounds of sugar a year and you change that to 150 pounds of barley malt, you’ll have the same problems with your immune system and blood sugar levels you would have if you are eating the sugar.

The bottom line is- use these sweetener substitutes sparingly!

From my own experience, I  use as much “real” food  sweeteners as possibly. Eating a sweet potato  is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth. If someone told me that last year, I would of thought they were crazy. A sweet potato vs. Oreos? No way!  I can assure you, its works. If you are new to detoxing from sugar it will take some time to retrain your taste buds. When you can start tasting the sweetness of a carrot or even the sweetness in brown rice, thats when you know you’ve got it.
Until then, use sweeteners such as Agave, Stevia,(more about these next time) honeycomb honey, cane fiber or cane juice,-use it sparingly and if needed. Notice how you may need  a certain amount on week 1, and less of it by week 4 and so on.

To my “Detox Buddies”:

Another great Sugar Detox on Friday and Saturday,(though splurged on empanadas!-but no sugar)  I visited my sister in law Olga on Shabbat who is doing great on the challenge, I have to say I was so impressed, her house was filled with great choice snacks, such as, dried mango from the health food store, raw unsalted pecans, fruits and dates- way to go!
my mind and body are feeling good.

Send in your questions! I will address questions through this News Letter. There may be a delay when answering individual questions-but I will get to them!

Send me your comments on how you are doing. The challenges that your facing, and/or the success that is coming your way. You can sign it anonymous or your name-your choice! We all want to know what’s going on!!

Note: since my email list grew considerably, I needed to upgrade my Blackberry. Upon switching phones, I lost many valuable email addresses and cell phone numbers. So, I have a favor to ask of you. When you receive this e-mail news letter, please ask your friends or family if they received it as well-if not-please let me know!

Pass it on: Smartbells Class Fridays @9:45
Power Sculpt
Sundays @9:15

Let me know if you need info on it.

I am reserving spots for friday May 7-an exciting class experience. 10:00-12:00 RSVP! (Free Class) my gift to YOU!

What you DESIRE you will ACHIEVE.

Till tomorrow!

Spring Detox Juice Recipes

2 Comments 07 April 2010

Apple juice-ginger drink and Lavander lemonade...

After all of that charoset and matzoh, its time to give our bodies a fresh start. Here are some  juicy recipes to help  jump start your spring!

the following excerpt is adapted from here.

“Imagine us all being kids again and we have spent the day out in a big huge pile of beautiful dirt, digging holes, making castles, playing with toys, living large. We come back inside and it’s time to clean up. How? Every which way; we clean our hair, our nails, our skin, our feet, our backs, our ears… wherever the dirt and gunk of the day got into. Same goes for cleansing our insides, and juicing cleanses the cells faster than any other food that I’ve found. Cleansing is not “new, and improved.”

We are all cleansing right now, and have been since the moment of conception. Every cell is constantly peeing and pooping. Every time we breathe out, we’ve cleansed our body of the metabolic waste known as carbon dioxide. Every time we have a bowel movement, our body is eliminating old cellular material (interesting: up to 40% of every bowel movement is dead cells). Cleansing occurs because our body’s cells are constantly dying and being replaced with new cells. Our spleen and liver and stomach cells do it, our intestinal walls do it, even our bones and muscle cells do this regeneration circle of life. All vegetable juicing does is improve this spring-cleaning regeneration process.

1. There is hardly any digestive work needed to process raw, enzyme  active liquid. Vegetable juice gets into the system quickly. 

2. Squeezed vegetable juice is very nutrient-dense. This concentration acts to supercharge the system in the same way that herbal tinctures work. One of the words we are going to hear more about over the next few years is “phytonutrients,” or plant chemicals. They are proving-as those who have switched to whole foods always have known-to be the key behind keeping our bodies free of cancer, digestive problems, and other degenerative illnesses.

3. The most important, and most overlooked, reason: juicing cleans the liver. I believe that the next big advance in understanding health will be in acknowledging the importance of self-detoxifying and de-sludging our liver. Sure, if you look into any human biology book, it already tells us that there are now over 700 known functions of the liver. But what we don’t realize is how that functionality is dependent on how unclogged it is.”
