Juicer Recipe for Digestion

fennelDigestive woes?  Feeling bloated from last night’s dinner overindulgence?  When I find myself in this situation I reach for three key ingredients:

  1. Ginger
  2. Mint
  3. Fennel

These herbs help to settle digestive upsets and bloating.  You can use them in a couple of different ways depending on your time and desire.

For herbal tea, steep them in hot water with some orange peel.  This makes a nice after dinner treat.

For a morning after cleanse juice them according to the following recipe:

Digest Ease

1/2 cucumber
1 green apple
1 stalk fennel with leaves
2 sprigs of mint
1/4-1/2 inch piece of ginger

Push all through juicer.  Note:  mint leaves can be rolled up into a ball to create volume when pushing through the juice extractor.
