Natural Relief For Constipation

Just Can't BEET It - Juice Recipe

I know I know! Constipation isn’t exactly the most fun or delightful thing to talk about, but it also isn’t fun to have so that’s why it is today’s topic.

If everything is flowing thru your system properly you should experience a bowel movement 1-3 times per day. Nope that was not a typo I said PER DAY. If you are not then you are suffering with a level of constipation.

There can be several reasons that you are dealing with constipation like:

  • Consuming too much dairy
  • After effects of surgery/anesthesia
  • Overuse of laxatives
  • Certain pharmaceutical meds (narcotics, antidepressants, iron pills, etc.)
  • Stress
  • Changes in normal diet
  • Decrease in or lack of physical activity
  • Eating disorders
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Lack of Fiber
  • Hypothyroidism

Beets, pears and apples are my go to foods to get things moving and my favorite #EatYourMedicine trick to combat constipation quickly and naturally is juicing. Here is one of my favorite Juices by EBNL recipes to the rescue!

Just Can’t BEET It

3 small/medium beets

2 firm Bartlett pears

2 pink lady apples

1/2 medium sized seeded watermelon

 

In true Juices by EBNL style this juice is also delicious so even if you’re not dealing with constipation this is a refreshing  and awesome preventive medicine.

REPUBLISH: The Gift of Juicing!

This post was originally published May 2014 and deserved to be brought back to the forefront as it has the breakdown of why juicing is so magical and two of my favorite juice recipes from the beginning of my journey to the present. I hope you enjoy it again or for the first time (^_^).

I get people all the time that drop in on my instagram just to request juice recipes to get them started on their healthy journey. I tell you if I wasn’t so adamant about getting the message of good health out there I may feel used, LoL. But because this is my passion I always graciously oblige and provide them all with my two go to juice recipes which are “Holy Grale” and “Soul Shine” juice. I got these two recipes from the raw vegan extraordinaire Kristina Carrillo-Bucarum better known as Fully Raw Kristina on all social media sites and for over a year I have made them a part of my daily juicing routine. I seriously juice almost every single day. I may miss only 1-2 days a month and these are my two go to juices 3-4 days of every week. I get fancy and experiment with juice recipes on the other days (^_^).

The gifts that I have received from juicing are unmatched! Here are the top things I’ve noticed:

  • The fog in my head was lifted! I am thinking so much clearer. When you stand in front of a group daily and talk the highly regulated world of banking for 8 hours this is huge!
  • My energy increased drastically and almost immediately. No longer feel like I need to pull over and take a nap on my 1 hour drive home from work and I can make dinner and spend time with my family!
  • My skin appeared to glow. This is addicting. Your skin is your largest organ! It can heal itself from the inside out more perfectly than any chemically laced serum or cream can.
  • Of course weight was flying off of me like milk and bread off the shelves during an ice storm!
  • The juice was so jam packed with nutrients I didn’t feel hungry afterwards. Now 32 oz is my breakfast and more than enough to satisfy me.
  • My nails and hair were growing, shiny and so much stronger. I have never had pretty nails. They have always been brittle and full of those tiny ridges. Now I don’t even want to put polish over them.
  • Better health. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia 3 years ago. My nutritionist informed me that I was ‘killing’ my pancreas. I was not 100% certain  what my pancreas did  for me, but I was adamant that since God sent me here with it I wanted to keep it! I AM NO LONGER HYPOGLYCEMIC!!

So now I would like to share the gift of these juices with you! First you will need a juicer…not a nutra-bullet, magic bullet, ninja or any other blender that is trying to pass itself off as a juicer. IT’S NOT A JUICER if it does 30 other things. I have had a Jack Lalanne juicer for 3 years now and it has been putting in work the last year. I love it! One day I would love to upgrade to a Breville or Omega because they wring the fruits and veggies almost completely dry of all that wonderful juice, but for now I am so good.

Soul Shine Juice

1 bunch of Kale (curly or dinosaur)

1 head of romaine lettuce

3 stalks of celery

1 large cucumber

3-4 apples (the more apple the sweeter the juice)

Juice of 1 lemon

Cut your veggies and fruit in sizes based on your juicers shoot to make it easy. I like to run my leafy greens thru first followed by my fruit and then my high water content items (celery and cucumber) to push thru any fruits and veggies still in the filter. I also like to manually juice my lemon and add it after to get as much of the juice as possible. OH and the magic to a delicious smooth juice is to run it thru a strainer before drinking it. Many will disagree with me on this and say I’m getting rid of too much fiber and my reply to that is I’m vegan…not lacking in fiber, LoL.

This makes about 22 oz. in Jack Lalanne juicer

Soul Shine Juice

Soul Shine Juice

Holy Grale Juice

1 bag of red grapes

1 bunch of curly or dinosaur Kale

That’s it (^_^).  You get it? Grapes + Kale = Grale…I LOVE IT! Run these ingredients thru your juicer, strain and enjoy. Let me just say YOU’RE WELCOME now because Welches ain’t got nothin’ on this!! Makes about 16 oz. in my Jack Lalanne juicer.

Cranberry Crush Juice Recipe

Natural Living Tip Sept 17, 2015

In the last week there has been an unusual yet welcomed cold snap in beautiful South Alabama. As I was out and about the crisp air made everything scream FALL IS COMING! In the department store windows the mannequins were dressed in sweaters and cardigans of warm dark colors and every eatery and cafe was advertising pumpkin flavored something. Yep! It’s really coming! One of my favorite seasons. And for me this only means one thing…IT’S CRANBERRY TIME! I looooove these little rubies so! First of all they’re a gorgeous color (what can I say I’m a sucka for pretty food.) Then they have the nerve to be so super good for you with a big punch of Vitamins E, C, K, Manganese and Fiber in such a small package. All of these vitamins and tons of phytonutrients are wonderful in helping to protect the body from harmful free radicals and offer anti-inflammatory and cancer-prevention properties.

Here is my favorite cranberry juice recipe. I can’t wait for you to try it and let me know what you think (^_^).

Hot Glow Juice Recipe

Natural Living Tip July 17, 2015

This is becoming a theme! One of you beYOUtiful Earthly Bodies requested a juice recipe that doesn’t contain greens and I am very happy to oblige. Greens have super powers and should be added if possible to every meal. However if there is ever a time that I am out of greens or making a variety of recipes to juice cleanse for a few days this is the first juice I go to. It has gotten rave reviews from my instagram peeps and I’m excited to hear what you think about it! If you weren’t already excited get this…their are only 3 ingredients ;-).

4 Navel Oranges

2 Pink Grapefruits

2-3 dashes of Cayenne Pepper

Run oranges and grapefruits thru your juicer. Strain. Add cayenne. Shake and enjoy! This recipe makes 32 oz. in my Jack Lalanne Power Juicer. There’s not an orange juice on the market that beats the taste and definitely not the nutrition of this recipe. If you are a pulp lover then skip the strainer and you’re all set! This is a great recipe for fat burning as well as a great metabolism booster.
