Pear Zinger Juice with Cucumber and Ginger

Print

About 5 years ago, juicing became an integral part of my life. In fact, I credit juicing as one of the top reasons I was able to free myself of the wheelchair that became necessary after a major, year-and-a-half-long lupus flare-up. Though the effects of juicing didn’t kick in right away I continued on. Within two to three months, major changes began to happen.

Today, I incorporate juicing into my daily regimen because of the incredible energy and nutrients it provides. Most of the time I do a dark, leafy green, heavier juice, but there are days when I need something light and refreshing. This is one of the juices I turn to; I incorporate ginger because I love the taste and it works wonders on inflammation, cucumber because of its water content and flavor, and top it off with my favorite fruit, pear. Have fun with this juice and play around with it depending on how much ginger you prefer and your tastes when it comes to sweetness (pear)!

Further Food Commentary:

For Marisa, juicing is a great way to get a concentrated amount of nutrients into the bloodstream. Ginger is a rockstar addition to this juice. Its anti-inflammatory properties are helpful in mitigating the swelling and joint pain associated with lupus. It has also been found to help reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and clotting, which is essential because those with lupus are at a higher risk of heart disease. Pear contains glutathione, a potent antioxidant that is also great for keeping blood pressure and stroke-risk low.

1 medium to large cucumber (peeled)

1½ – 2 ripe pears (I prefer Bartlett pears)

1 medium to large lemon

1½ – 2 inch piece of ginger (peeled)

Instructions

  1. Juice all ingredients for a lemony and gingery taste of heaven! If the pears are very ripe, 1½  pears will usually be plenty to sweeten this juice up. You can add the other half of the pear if you want the juice sweeter rather than tangy.
