The Health Show Episode #1 with Siobhan Guthrie
So here’s an idea! What do I need to do to start using all the technology out there? There are so many possibilities now that just didn’t exist 5 or 6 years ago!
Embracing this technology in a new way that is both meaningful and gives you value, but also contributes in a way that helps YOU be healthier! In easy steps!
I’ve been mulling it over for a few weeks now, and TODAY decided to just start! We can easily put things off till you’re less busy, have more time, planned it, had my hair done, worried about sound (it’s OK), but I’m a recovering perfectionist that says, getting it DONE is perfection enough. You know what I mean?
So today was …… drumroll……… Episode No 1.
Who know where it’ll go, but, and it’s a big but – it’s the direction that matters. No doubt there will be some overwhelm but by stretching myself it’s the only way to grow! Today is 6th September 2016 …. this time next year, we could have 52 episodes done already!! Eek, did I just commit to one a week? Well, let’s see. I want to provide you with valuable content, not just for the sake of rolling out another episode. But for this, I will need your help. What do YOU want to see? What health questions do you have? What’s frustrating you about health?
So in THIS episode, because I’m getting ready a busy five days of teaching from Saturday, I thought I’d share some juicing that I do to help prepare myself for the week ahead. Juicing gives me loads of energy, increases my stamina, it also helps me feel healthier, because I sleep better, and awake more refreshed. All ready so that I can be at my best for my lovely group of Diploma Students.
This morning we dove right in with a Facebook LIVE video, (so there was no stopping once I got started right – another way to get things done – make it impossible to stop, haha!) and I shared one of my go-to juice recipes that gets my day off to a great start.
Below the video is the recipe I use.
And if you have a question you’d like an answer to, just ask!
Benefits of juicing:
It’s a good way to get your daily serving of fruits and veggies – much easier to drink 20 carrots than to eat 20 carrots!
You’ll absorb nutrients better with less digestion, as the fibre has been removed
Detoxify Gently and Naturally – giving your digestion a bit of a rest is good for it!
Its a great way to use up surplus vegetables from your garden & fridge
A health digestive system = a strong immune system (80% is in your gut).
They taste great, and if you juice exclusively for a day or two you will start to feel the amazing POWER of juicing.
Here are the ingredients Siobhan used. (one serving; double the amount for 2 servings)
- 2 Apples
- 1/4 Cucumber
- 1 rib of celery
- 1/2 Lime
- 1/3 Pineapple
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1/2 teaspoon of Spirulina
- a few Ice cubes
I am using a masticating juicer in this video. It gently extracts the juices of fruits and vegetables and leaves the fibre behind. The slow masticating squeezes every last bit of fluid and nutrients out of your pulp. The blender then using the nutrient rich juice, blended with the avocado, and spirulina makes a very smooth, rich and tasty drink.
If you wish to keep your juice for later, store in a glass container with an air-tight lid for up to 24 hours. I tend to store the juice, and only blend with the avocado, ice, and spirulina when ready to drink.
