yields one gallon
make dandelion root tea:
2 c. filtered water
6 t. Starwest Dandelion Root (see link below)
thumb of fresh ginger or you may used dried pieces of ginger
bring water to near boil but not boiliing
add dandelion root
steep for 5-10 mins
strain this mixture and allow to cool
( I re-use the dandelion root by adding more water and warming it up and allowing it to steep for at least 30 mins or more and then strain it and store for the next batch)
in your gallon jug add:
1/3 c. Just Cranberry Juice (no sugar..I use Knudsen)
1/3- 1/2 c. organic lemon juice ( I use Volcano Lemon Juice available at Costco)
add Dandelion Tea and water to fill jug....I also add a couple droppers of alcohol free NuNaturals Stevia
My daughter and I are drinking this freely throughout the day.
This juice is super cleaning for your skin, kidneys, liver, digestive system and it's anti-inflammatory and alkalizing . It may help with weight loss, it's a diuretic, helps to balance blood sugar, is rich in micronutrients, helps with the digestion and emulsification of fats.
We have seen major improvements in my daughter and my skin, our digestion and elimination of excess water weight.
See the links below for more benefits of add this juice to your day. (be sure to check for contraindications before using)
Check out this except from the book by Peter A. Gail, Ph.D, titled" The Dandelion Celebration-The Guide to Unexpected Cuisine"
My Daughter and I love to periodically cleanse and reset our system. It is so easy to get off track and begin adding too many convenience foods (even if they seem to be healthy or you got them at the health food section of the store), or too many cooked foods
into our life and before you know it, you are experiencing old symptoms.....digestive or skin issues, weight gain, excess fluid build up...etc.....you fill in the blank.
Green and Carrot Juice Prep
The red juice is a green, onion, garlic, carrot & beet juice. My daughter called it hamburger juice, because the flavor reminded her of the smell and taste of hamburger. :)
She eats a vegan diet...but you never forget.
My favorite Blended Salad/Soup

I also had a few pieces of onion bread with my soup!
This is the most delicious bread I have ever made. I call it onion ring bread.

Mix together in large bowl until seeds gel~

2 c. water
2 t. salt

4 large red onions sliced in Food processor or other sweet onions

my bread is moist but firm and delicious...and sometimes I will make it extra crispy!
