I didn’t know eczema can be so life altering until I had someone close to me face eczema flares. Her eczema flares are trigger by one too many things. I shared this recipe with her (off Instagram) and she said that even though she has a juicer at home, she wont be able to make this because it is very painful just to set it up, cut fruit or handle the washing because her eczema flares are on her hands too.
So I decided to make this for her (and hopefully I can make this regularly.
3 stalks of celery
1 bunch kale
1 (organic) cucumber
1 whole lemon
1/2 green apple
1 knob ginger
1. Blend all these ingredients in a blender.
2. Put it through a fine mesh sieve to get all the juice in without the pulp
Option 2: (I use this method)
1. I put all these ingredients into my juicer that will cold press the ingredients and sieve it at the same time
Once you’ve obtained the juice, there are 2 options of storage.
Funnel the juice into 100 ml bottles and store it in the refrigerator to consume every morning. This method has limited shelf life. I notice that the juice’s colour and properties start to change on the 4th day in the fridge. So this is best consumed fresh, and up to 3-5days later if kept in an air tight container in a cold fridge.
Option 2: (I prefer this)
Put the juice into an ice cube tray and freeze them. Every morning, take 5 cubes and mix it with warm water for consumption
I usually get comments and DMs on my Instagram account about the proportions of each ingredient. All the ingredients have their benefits, so the difference in proportions would just mean a difference in taste. So if this is your first time, just go ahead and try it.
Once you’ve had your first batch, trust me, you’ll know which ingredient you want more or less of.
I will attached videos here should I decide to make them in the future. 🙂
