Recipes: Morning Zinger Juice

by Polly N on August 18, 2010

Juicing vegetables is a great way to increase the amount of minerals and vitamins in your diet. It’s often difficult to consume as many vegetables we need to get our daily fix of nutrients so I would definitely recommend introducing juicing into your lifestyle. The nutrients are easily assimilated by our bodies and enter our system much quicker and easier than if we were to sit down and eat a big plate of them, (which lets be honest isn’t that tempting!!)

Beetroot is great for lowering blood pressure, carrots and apples are full of cancer fighting antioxidants and ginger acts as an anti-inflammatory. (Inflammation in cell tissues promotes the growth of cancer)

Try to use organic produce to reduce your consumption of pesticides and insecticides, but if that’s not possible, peel the carrots and wash all the apples.

Juice and drink:

  • 6 carrots
  • 3 medium sized beetroot (raw beetroot – not cooked)
  • 3 apples
  • half an inch ginger

If you’d like some advice on what juicer to buy, I recommend these.

Hi Polly
i have just read an article about you and your fight to beat cancer. I watched my mum battle cancer years ago with conventional medicine, sadly she did not win. I agree with your belief that diet has a massive impact on cancer cells –
i take vitamin B17 (Laertrile) in the form of Apricot Kernels daily as a preventative measure – this vitamin is apparently not passed as safe by our government, so cananot be purchased as a supplement in shops. Please do some research yourself on this vitamin – it occurs naturally in apple seeds for example

I wish you all the best, your positive attitude is a real inspiration x

hi polly,
I have been reading all of your info & just wanted to say this site is fantastic & has motivated me & is helping me loads. I have started a healthy eating plan in the hope that it will give me more time after being diagnosed 2months ago (at 29years old) with secondary cancer (2 skull-based tumours which are untreatable & inoperable). Unfortunately i have only been given 6-12months to live, but i am determined to do whatever it takes to try & save myself.
Is there a particular juicer you recommend for veg, like for the recipe you have above? I dont want to buy a rubbish one. thanks.

hi polly,
ive been reading everywhere how great brocoli is especially for cancer patients & was wondering if you had a recipe best for it? its not the best tasting veg but i see having it raw is supposed to be the most beneifical as cooking takes out all the goodness. what do you suggest is the best way to have it? ive never heard of ‘juicing’ brocoli so is this even possible?

Hi Greg

Yes broccoli is packed full of anti-oxidants and is something that should be consumed as regularly as possible and in it’s raw form to preserve all the nutrients. Check out this blog for a broccoli juice.

Thanks for your email!

Wishing you health and happiness x

Just started juicing and wheat grass. I don’t know which is helping. My drink is all greens and beets and Ginger and Lemon and carrots as a water filler. Maybe some garlic also. Lemon and Ginger are antiflamatories. Not sure about the rest. Beets detoxify. Lemons Detoxify.

It immediately brought my arm size down. One day four it is down 2 cm at upper arm. It does not flutuates like it usually does.

Love you site. Not one is taking about juicing for lymphedema.
I still wear my compression stocking and night tribute garment.
