Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food

Going to start juicing this week and eat vegetarian meals for...... as long as I can do it. This is part of the Gerson protocol for patients with advanced cancer and also good for you to do drink daily anyway. To find out more about it watch Beautiful Truth and Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead, both documentaries. Also check out this too: Foods_For_The_Gerson_Diet 

The juice they recommend to drink is carrot/apple, packed with nutrients and easily absorbed by the body. Drink 5 glasses a day. Good pairing to fight/prevent cancer. I don't know the exact recipe but I messed around with it this evening.

Picked up my Hamilton Juicer from Walmart. The juicer has the highest ratings on the site and the price was pretty reasonable $49.00.  Then headed to the grocery store and bought 12 organic green apples and 4 bags of organic baby carrot costing me $18. I chose the baby carrots cause it is already peeled and saves me time. But I guess that doesn't matter anyway the juicer takes care of all the pulp, skin, and seeds. Best way to drink it is to have it cold. The taste is good and you don't taste too much carrot.

Cup of Apple/Carrot Juice
1 apple
Half a bag of baby carrots

The worst part is taking the juicer apart and cleaning it. I put a bag in the pulp container to catch everything to make it easier to clean, but the gunk stuck to the top of the lid.
