The ABC juice, despite its disarmingly simple sounding name, gives countless health benefits to the brain and body. Ms Carel Lim began her workshop on Gerson Therapy by introducing this juice to the participants on 11 February 2015 at the Holistic Lifestyle Centre. Making the ABC juice is easy according to Ms Lim, the nutritionist at Holistic Lifestyle Centre of Kampung Senang @Aljunied Crescent. Simply juice apples, carrots and beetroots in a 3-2-1 ratio to make a juice of about 250 ml.
Workshop participants were treated to this magic drink, whose effects could be felt almost immediately after consumption. The participants asked many questions related to making healthy fruit and vegetable drinks. Ms Lim told us that the Gerson Therapy recommends consuming 13 cups of juices everyday for their healing, each cup being 250 ml.
Making juice will inevitably create organic juice pulp. Throwing the pulp away would be such a waste. So what can you do with the leftover pulp? There are numerous ways of reusing the healthy organic fibre such as turning them into patties or sushis; or adding them to soup to increase fibre and nutrient density; or making fruit tea by boiling the fruit pulp with water and adding cinnamon or ginger, then straining it; and the list goes on. Contrary to popular belief, eating organic food is not as costly as it would first appear, especially, if we are prepared to be creative in the way we use organic foods.
