    Topic: Juicing
    Presenter: Queentswana

    Greetings Sisters!

    Sister Queentswana has graciously agreed to share her knowledge of juicing with us. I have heard about juicing, but have never tried it myself. Thank you, queent!

    Many of us tend to indulge in foods that contain high levels of saturated fats, salt, preservatives, starch, and dairy products. Over indulgence in these can lead to a host of medical ills, including indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer, heart disease, etc. Juicing, or using raw foods to make juice, aids in cleansing and regenerating our bodies
    The following excerpt was taken from the BASTIS foundation website, .

    "Fresh, raw, un-preserved juices contain all the amino acids, minerals, enzymes and vitamins the body needs to nourish and regenerate cells, tissues, glands, and organs, with a minimum of digestive effort. Fruit juices are the cleansers of the human system; vegetable juices are the builders and regenerators.

    A four to eight-ounce glass of raw fruit or vegetable juice not only provides all the healing nutrients that have been isolated so far, but all the ones man has yet to discover. Plus, it provides them in their living, organic, alkaline, whole, complete, balanced form.

    Why not just eat the vegetables and fruit? You’ll understand that the first time you juice. It takes over a pound of carrots to generate a single glass of carrot juice! Could you eat that much in one sitting?

    But that single glass is full of easy-to-digest, rapidly assimilated, concentrated nutrients that go to work immediately to start healing the body by nourishing the bloodstream. When a body is in a weakened state, even fruits and vegetables can be difficult to digest. But juiced foods require little or no digestion, so the healing nutrients of the raw fruits and vegetables are readily available for assimilation into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract."

    Looking forward to seeing all the sisters in the house. :)
