Juicing with the Season – Warming Green JuicesPosted by Cher Fauvel on Oct 8, 2013 in Raw Food Benefits | 2 comments
Juicing with the Season – Well our winter crops are happily presenting themselves for our use to boost our immune system and prevent the chills and bugs, bring us comfort and warm the cockles of our hearts (as my Mum used to say), and they sure do!
I must say I dread the transition into winter, but I love Autumn and this year here in France it has been glorious, still gorgeous hot days for lovely walks and witnessing the earth changing it’s colors – what a blessing to observe!
Hey ho it is chilling a little now – oh the one thing I don’t like is closing my doors, I love my doors open and really do dislike the feeling of being closed in, but then there is so much to be grateful for – juicing with the season brings us health building, warming green juices and cosy evenings with warming soups – very grounding and connecting us to Mother earth – awwww she takes care of us if we let her!
Let’s get out there for long walks to keep the body moving, shrug off the winter blues, get the energy flowing and connecting with nature – those walks do make us feel better in the winter season.
Juicing with the Season – Warming Green Juices
My veggie plot was a disaster this year, (humph) the ground is full of rocks that just kept resurfacing and I was unable to get an outside tap put in, we all know how much water our veggies need and although the plot was just the other side of my garden it was a nightmare toing and froing with watering cans, fighting the stinging nettles and trying to keep my dogs from escaping and chasing hens!
So I gave in, I moved what I could to the garden, but most were not happy, I managed to save the hardier stuff though so still got some winter delights, but I am disappointed, I so love growing my own veg, but it does look like I am on the move again so hopefully I will have a better option by spring, I really want to have a raised bed veg garden – that would be awesome – request is in – And so it is!
What I am delighted about is to see my favorite veg appear at the organic market and that is Parsnips – oh I love parsnips in my green juices, a gorgeous earthy sweetness – yum!
Juicing with the season – the more we do this and be conscious of what is fresh and in season, the more we become in harmony with the earth – it is a beautiful feeling – and it is what our body is designed for, it just makes sense – to be in harmony with everything around us.
There are a few people I know who give me some strange looks when I talk this way, I do wish they would give it a chance, when we open up and accept Mother Earths gifts – we have everything – I am not joking!
Of course we don’t have to juice the seasons veggies, but that is how we get the most beneficial nutrition from these gifts.
