Grapefruit Juice Green Drink
Today we made GFJGD for our class studying traditional chinese medicine in Belize, who are having a potluck.
We were invited to bring something healthy and healing by our teacher Suzan Barnes, and talk about it.
One of our favorite ways to start the morning is with this green drink. It tastes delicious!
Belize is one of the great citrus producers of the world, so it was no problem to get a 50lb bag of grapefruit fi cheap!
The sylic acid in grapefruit is good for the joints. Sylic acid is also a disinfectent, so it works for fungus and bacteria infections.
We blended the grapefruit instead of juicing it, so we get the benefit of having a few seeds in there, and also some pith.The pith contains most of the vitamin c and antioxidants and bioflavinoids It is healtier for us to use the whole fruit, and not just it’s juice.
Grapefruit is good for you if you have a cancer pathology, or a liver pathology. But be careful about injesting grapefruit if you are using perscription drugs.
The greens we are using in our green drink is parsley. Parsley has a unique flavor, which is fairly strong, and that’s why the grapefruit is there in the recipe, along with cane sugar .
We purchased our parsley in the vibrant San Ignacio market on Saturday, in Cayo District, Belize.
Parsley can remove heavy metals from the blood, remove cancerous cells from the lungs, is helpful in treating asthma, as well as being good for the joints and the heart.
We flavoured the drink with Cane Sugar. The cane sugar has essential nutrients and minerals. It contains magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and iron.
