our first batch....

Today I brought a juicer and a bag of fresh produce to mom's place with a list of recipes aimed at fighting cancer. Every article I've read about people who have added length to their lives in their cancer battle have turned to juicing to infuse more nutrients into their bodies. The doctors have told us they can't operate, based on where the tumours are located, but I'm going to do everything in my power to slow these tumours the $&* down. Have you ever used a heavy duty juicer before? I was truly amazed watching it separate the pulp from the juice.

Today we tried:
4 celery stalks
5 handfuls of spinach
3 apples
1 orange (peeled)
1/2 lemon (peel included)
1/4 thumb of fresh ginger

It was so fresh and delicious. I was so impressed that I ran out and bought one for us too. I figure I can sneak more veggies into my family's diet in the form of delicious drinks, then that's exactly what I'll do.
Remember, think before you eat. xoxo

Hey Kelly. I think that's a great idea of juicing. My company was involved in a clinical trial for Inspire Health ( here in Vancouver for using Vitamin D (up to 10,000IU daily) for battling cancer with excellent results. Being in the natural health industry, I have heard of similar stories of treating with nutrition to challenge (and beat) cancer.

You are an amazing daughter and I applaud you for doing everything you can to help your mom.

Take care,

Thanks so much Angela! One of my co-workers just told me about Inspire Health yesterday. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your comment. I'm so happy you ended up in natural health, it's not surprising, being an ironman athlete!
