One of our readers, Hanna, made some helpful and valid comments about yesterday’s juicing post. Since a lot of people don’t bother to read comments about previous articles, I thought I would reproduce Hanna’s thoughts and add a few comments of my own at the end:
Interesting. My juicing routine includes a variety of anti-angiogenesis products but most importantly, a lot of greens.
My juices include lemon/lime, a bit of ginger. garlic (sometimes), and greens such as kale, dandelion, cucumber, etc. I also include beets to help the liver do it’s work.
Based on my research, the greens are very important. I’m surprised that recommendations to cancer patients would not include greens.
Fruits are very useful for cleansing. The vegetables are useful to provide us with nutrients.
If I include fruit, it is usually an apple because many of us on chemo and/or pain killers do have digestive issues.
Just saying … 🙂
Thanks, Hanna! My daily “misc sludge” contains spinach, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, carots and sometimes beets, all blended together, skins and all, along with milled flax seed. I’m not big on adding fruit, since I am on a very low carb diet (long story!).
Sound like we are on the same page!
Feel good, keep smiling and eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables! Pat
