Anti-inflammatory Juice

I realize that this probably looks like a bloody mary from a distance so I apologize to those of you who thought it was an alcoholic beverage. I guess you could throw some vodka in or whatever goes in those drinks. I’ve never had a desire to drink tomato juice and alcohol so I don’t even know what goes in to making them.

I bought a juicer last summer and it was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made. I use it all the time and it is worth all of the many….many… many pennies I spent on it. I have never been one of those juicers who uses four ingredients and that is it. I literally throw everything but the kitchen sink in it and as long as it has a lot of ginger than I am good. I also am not one of those avid juice cleanse people. I really have tried it and have wanted to like it but I hate it. It makes me a mean person. Its not even that I am hungry or anything. I just feel this desperation to chew some food. So what usually happens is I just refuse to drink anymore juice and I starve until my husband forces me to either drink the juice or stop the fast. I usually stop and then eat way more food than I normally would to make up for all my days without chewing. Then that probably defeats the purpose of juicing. Its a vicious cycle!

Anyway, back to my recipe. I created this juice with the desire to incorporate several different anti-inflammatory ingredients. I have been working hard for the past six months to decrease a lot of the inflammation that was built up in my body. Celery, ginger, and turmeric are what I chose for this recipe. I must admit that I don’t always love to juice celery. It has an extremely potent taste and almost lingering salty flavor. However, I did discover a while back that if I paired it with carrots and an orange then I loved it!! For those of you who don’t want that much sugar and can tolerate the celery taste, you can just sub something else in.

I used ground turmeric powder for this recipe. I just put it in the juicer with all of the other ingredients and let it mix in that way. You can also use the actually root.

If you don’t have a juicer you could throw it all in a high speed blender and strain it.

The juice has a very strong kick from the ginger and turmeric but balances out well with the flavors of the orange and carrot. Also, your body will thank you for it! Enjoy
