Living a healthy life starts with eating and drinking healthy. Fresh vegetables and fruits are the key ingredients of a healthy diet. With the busy life style we have nowadays, it is difficult to meet the recommended 5 servings of vegetables and fruits daily. Recently I discovered an easy-to-use machine that can extract juice from whole fruits and vegetables in a very efficient way. Visit My Favorites to check out the juice fountain. Here are a few easy recipes:
1) Apple, carrot and orange juice - 4 small Granny Smith apples, 2 medium sized carrots (peeled), 4 oranges (peeled), processed through a juice fountain, makes 32 oz juice.
2) Pineapple orange juice - 1/2 pineapple (peeled) and 3 oranges (peeled), processed through a juice fountain, makes 32 oz juice.
3) Apple, grape, carrot and celery juice - 4 small Golden Delicious apples, 2 cups of green grapes, 3 medium sized carrots (peeled), 2 sticks of celery, processed through a juice fountain, makes 32 oz juice.
Medicated Diet is based on dietary meals cooked with regular food but include herb(s) as an ingredient. It can be prepared either from edible Chinese herbs alone, or from Chinese herbs and food, cooked according to certain prescriptions. Ancient Chinese people believed that for the purpose of health care and prevention, Medicated Diet was better than tonic. The legendary Chinese medicine doctor Sun Simiao said in his book Qiang Jing Fang (The Priceless Prescriptions) "if illness is to be treated, treat it with Medicated Diet first, then with drugs if it is not cured."
