Many of you may be aware of the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. If not, I’ll give you a little background. The creator Joe Cross is sick and tired of taking steroids and other prescription medication because they have brought no success for his severe autoimmune disease, known as chronic urticaria. He decides to embark on a 60 day juice fast to get rid of the extra 100+ pounds, regain his health but more importantly allow the body to naturally heal itself. Throughout the 60 days he only consumes fresh fruit and vegetable juices. After his fast, he was able to lose all the excess weight, gain increase energy but more importanly reverse his autoimmune disease that he was dealing with for many years.
The Mean Green Juice is one of the popular juice recipes featured in the film. So I created this green juice recipe as an enhanced version, still very tasty but loaded with more nutrients & minerals. This juice recipe features two types of kale. Kale contains many health benefits, such as, it’s rich in nutrients (contains antioxidant nutrients, anti-inflammatory nutrients & anti-cancer nutrients), which support the very hectic lives many of us live. I chose two types of kale to offer a full spectrum of nutrients, loaded with vitamin K, vitamin A (beta-carotene), vitamin C and more.
Vitamin A: Protects you against infections. Helps boost the immune system. Prevents night blindness, prevents cataracts and preservers/improves your eyesight. Protects skin against sun damage and acne. Reverses signs of aging.
Vitamin K: A critical nutrient for bone health and helps prevent osteoporosis. Helps prevent calcification in tissues and arteries.
Vitamin C: Protects against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, lowers cholesterol & blood pressure, prevents strokes, prenatal health problems, eye disease and may help decrease the chances of gallstones.
This mean green juice recipe alone will surpass your daily requirements of fruits/vegetables.
