In her wonderful book on juicing, “Power Juices”, Leslie Kenton had this to say:-
This recipe (Potassium Punch) is our tribute to Dr Norman Walker, the American raw food pioneer and proponent of natural healing, who helped to develop the technique of juicing and was one of the first to write about the wonders of raw juice. A marvelous testament to the truth of the idea that you are what you eat, Dr Walker lived to the age of 106 years. An evangelist of detoxification, he would recommend to his patients that they drink his Raw Potassium Broth, although he would be the first to admit that most people don’t find it as palatable as straight carrot juice, or concoctions based on a carrot and apple mix.
In the words of the great man himself; “The organic minerals and salts in this combination of raw potassium ‘broth’ embrace practically the entire range of those required by the body. Its effect in reducing excessive acidity in the stomach has been truly remarkable. There is probably no food more complete in every respect than this for the human organism.”
So there you have it, we recommend that you drink at least a glass a day. Here is the recipe – enjoy!
- 3 carrots
- 2 stalks celery
- 4-6 leaves of lettuce or winter greens
- A handful of spinach, watercress, or dandelion leaves
- A few stalks of fresh coriander or parsley
