Power Green Juice Recipe

Dear cherished reader,

This is one of my favourite juice recipes:

*3 slices of fresh Aloe Vera (each about 2″ width)

*2 Cucumbers

*1 Large Green Bell Pepper

*1 Green Apple

*1 Large Bunch Kale

*2 inch piece of Ginger

Run the above ingredients through a slow juicer, strain and drink! Pure green power that always presses my hot buttons. If you have a chance to see me slurping this juice up, I promise you that you will be impressed with my enjoyment. My eyes roll up, and I smile to the ceiling thanking God that I’m alive. My whole body feels alive, cells rejoicing, and I start to grin. Who says you need a reason to be happy?

Goodness me, if I had known 8 years ago that I could be so turned on by a green juice, I may not have dared ventured into raw foods. What GOT my attention then were the cheesecakes, crackers, pies, and ice creams!

It is your turn now to lose yourself in the world of raw cheesecakes, crackers, pies, and ice creams, the healthy way! 

Extraordinary health and taste buds heaven at a value price. Why wait? Email to contact@lightlovelaughteracademy.com to enquire on our Raw Food Chef Course now!

So you see, at first it is ALL about the FOOD; and then you will realize it is NEVER about the FOOD. It is so much more…

Juice your Way to Health!

Dear lovelies,

Did you noticed the number of people falling ill lately has increased? Blame it on the haze, or the ever increasing amount of construction in Singapore.

We observed, with a tint of smugness, that the percentage of our Light Love Laughter Community falling sick is LOWER. Most of us remain in good health, and those who do get sore throat or headiness recover within a day. Hooray!

Here is a quick-remedy juice recipe to protect yourself from the virus outside:

*2 Green Starfuits
*2 Green Apples
*2 inch piece of fresh old ginger
*4 Stalks Celery
*1 Lemon

Add a pinch of sea salt to the juice and drink immediately after juicing! 

The great thing about living foods is that there isn’t really any ‘side effects’ because they are after all, food!

So go ahead and buy the ingredients in bulk, drink up to 3 times a day if possible during this hazy period. (We even add wheatgrass in sometimes!)

Vitality & Wholesome Nutrition without a Fuss!

Everyone of us is given 24 hours a day. But not everyone of us have equal results in life. What differentiates the successful person from others is that he/she is able to more effectively use the time, to do more with less, to achieve more within less time.

While we can’t extend time, we can definitely increase our memory power, brain efficiency and processing speed. The University of South Florida recently did a 2 month test to find that a diet rich in antioxidants successfully increased cognitive memory, learning and thinking speed in a group of 65-85 years old subjects. 

What good news to know that boosting brain power can be just as simple as using the blender! 

Here’s a recipe using the Ultimate Health Pack to give you honest, good old nutrition without fuss

1Tbs Vitamineral Green Powder
1 Tbs Inca Berries
1 Tbs Yacon Syrup
1 Tbs Cacao Powder
1 Squirt Plankton (about 6 drops max)
1 Tsp Maca Powder
1 Tsp Lucuma Powder
1/2 Cup Chia Gel (Concentrated)
1/2 Cup Water
1 Cup frozen bananas (you can substitute with mango pieces/dragon fruit pieces/papaya/blueberries, best to rotate daily!)
Blend and drink!

Seven things that most beginners don’t know about Coffee Enemas

Most people who are new to Coffee Enemas has one or more of the following internal conversations:

 

“It must be very painful to stick something up the ass.”

“Its going to be a hell of a mess!”

“Will it burst something in my stomach?”

“So scary; will I die?”

“I don’t drink coffee, I’m allergic.”

 

Fact 1: Nobody died before

Nobody has ever died from coffee enemas before. On the contrary, people have been saved from life threatening diseases using Coffee Enema therapy and high quality super foods. Many ancient tribes practiced Enemas as part of a healing regime (Egypt, Aztecs, Romans etc). For more info on Coffee Enemas and Healing Cancer, do a google search for Max Gerson and check out his Gerson’s therapy of healing cancer.

 

Fact 2: It is not painful

The toxicity and chronic constipation (both of which Coffee Enemas can help relief with astonishing efficacy) that most people suffer from definitely cause more pain. For those just starting out, make sure you learn the techniques from somebody who has live experience both as practitioner and teacher – that makes a whole world of difference on how smooth your virgin attempt will be.

 

Fact 3: It is better out than in!

If your toilet smells like the incinerator during your first month on Coffee Enemas, congratulations. That foul smelling junk which you purged could be the very junk that is cluttering your mind and stopping you from moving towards your goal. It is not a myth to say that your body is your temple. The cleaner your temple, the faster your prayers manifest.

After a few months the eliminate smells less foul, eventually becoming something similar to the poo of tortoises LOL.

 

Fact 4: It will not travel to your head.

Passing the coffee solution in will not break anything or cause any flow to go haywire. Our body is smart enough; there are inbuilt valves to control how food materials travel and how waste material travels. In fact if we eat and live in accordance to Nature we won’t even be sick in the first place.

So lay aside your fears that coffee solution will spill out of your gut and mouth – that happens only in nightmares.

 

Fact 5: It is not normal coffee

In the first place, please DO NOT use the conventional store bought coffee. Coffee Enema solutions are prepared with specially Gerson’s approved organic white coffee that has not been fried with butter and sugar. Another thing to note is that even if you are using coffee that has been marked “Gerson’s approved”, and you get heart palpitations, then its probably too strong for you, and you may want to switch to a different source.

 

Fact 6: It will not cause constipation

You will not get constipation due to Coffee Enemas. On the contrary, Coffee Enema detox will alleviate constipation because the crusted waste materials stuck to the colon walls will be reduced. Thus restoring the colon state and intestinal peristalsis movements.

 

Fact 7: Its one of the faster ways to gain more energy and look young

There are people whom, after going on juicing and raw foods, with the help of Coffee Enemas, look twenty years younger than they actually are. How much is that worth in terms of Botox and plastic surgery? (Not only in term of dollars, but also the pain and side effects of going under needles and knives).

This is because the liver is the most powerful organ we have. From breaking down and exporting toxins, storing vitamins to regulating hormones, cholesterol and blood manufacturing functions, it takes on almost every major biological function.  Once you make it happy, it eagerly performs for you by giving you a beautiful clean and strong body.

Extra tip: Helping your liver goes a long way

Coffee Enemas is a big first step to loving the liver. A high quality liver supplement will do wonders to enhance your Coffee Enema detox experience. Or if you want to save money, simply taking 2 TBS of virgin coconut oil 30 minutes before your Coffee Enema helps to strengthen the liver too.
