Today’s recipe comes from a friend who works in finance:
After researching into health and well being I realized that people in Japan live the longest. So if you look into their diet you see a high concentration of a few elements. Seafood, Seaweed, Cucumbers and different fruits (Japanese pears and cherries). With this in mind the below was a concoction created today.
1 Japanese eggplant (Roughly 0.35 lbs) – generates a lot of juice and water
1 Japanese pear (roughly 0.7 lbs) – these tend to generate a lot of juice and water
2 Japanese Cucumbers (roughly 0.5 lbs) – spikey cucumbers and yield less water and more “juice”
This was the basic, however being a a gym rat it was time to spice it up with some “bad stuff”
6 leaves of kale
2 yellow beets (include the chard as stems)
1 Handful of Japnese cherries (these are harder to find they are dark red/purplish at times)
The biggest takeaway here is that we’re mixing high yielding fruits to mask the taste of the “gross” stuff. Specifically, the eggplant and kale. Drinking that straight is rough.
After drinking this the gym feels amazing, instead of getting a nauseous feeling I felt hydrated due to the large liquid content from the Japanese pear. Felt great. In addition the pumps came from the beets and the detox was still going on in my body from the kale and cucumbers. A winning formula all around.
To keep the topic on Japanese foods, I’ll be attempting the following juice in three days.
6 large pieces of seaweed
3 Japanese plums (In Japan they dry them and are eaten raw)
2 Japanese cucumbers
1 Japanese Pears
If the thesis is correct and Japan lives longer due to their diet, this should be a good one. Haven’t gone all the way into juicing a salmon or a tuna but who knows, this is for the people who jump right into the deep end.
