Last night, during our New Year partying with junk food and fun, I was researching how to do celery juice. I had previously read on how this is a great healer especially on an empty stomach in the morning. These anti-inflammatory properties can help with acid reflux, bloating, IBS, constipation, acne, eczema, and other inflammation issues in the body. Celery juice is very high in vitamin K which promotes general bone and heart health.
My husband grabbed his chest and said, “Oh man! I ate too much sugar. I’ve got acid reflux again,” and my 10yr old daughter, starts coughing like she’s dying. I’m like…. “uh, wanna try celery?” We don’t usually have celery, but since my husband knew that I was going to begin juicing it this week, he’d picked me up some. They both split a celery stick and both claimed that they felt better. Cool.
Today, I woke up feeling extremely tired. I had already made a goal to make celery juice before I ate, so I just had to get downstairs to make it. I zombied through it. Nothing, but celery and water using my food processor and blender. (1 celery stick – 1 cup of water) It didn’t taste that awesome, but I felt better right away.
The goal is to get up to 16oz in the morning before breakfast. (probably twice as much because I add water.) Now, granted, I could have added an apple to make it taste better until I get used to it and slowly adjust to plain celery juice. But, I want to heal as fast as possible. So, here we go!
