Green Gourd Juice

While surfing around the net, I came across a superb concept of raw food diet. A diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouts, juices, seeds, nuts, grains, beans, dried fruit, coconut milk etc. And the results Increased energy, Better skin, Improved digestion, Weight loss, Reduced risk of heart disease and many more.

The best thing about this whole concept is that if you follow a raw food diet you can eat almost as much as you can and still maintain a healthy weight. I found this whole idea just amazing. I am sure all of you would too and many must be knowing this already, even some must have tried it out. In synch with this I found Raw Divas, a website which is offering a free 7-Day Raw Food Detox Program for Women.

The Raw Divas 7 Day Detox

This green juice which I have made is the result of my inspiration from this whole concept of raw food diet. I am yet take the program. But I will try it for a day, if all goes well. May be I get going for more. Best idea would be to take a week off and then enjoy the program doing everything you were wanting to do from a long time. Anyone who wants to lose weight, I will suggest any this great concept for losing weight in a healthy way. My juice will help you in that. Easy to make, green and very nutritious.

That's one interesting juice. I do make vegetable juices but never tried adding bottle gourd, just curious how did it taste?

Looks delectable! Oh i have had bottle gourd juice before but that was absolutely plain and frankly didnt quite like it :( with amla, ginger, salt and lemon I am sure the juice would have tasted wonderful!

I do make vege juice with fresh fruits at home. Wonder this is bitter gourd you mentioned about. I've heared that bitter gourd helps to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Love the click...looks so neat and nice colour

Ancoo this is bottle gourd not bitter gourd. Bitter gourd as the name is bitter in taste. I just can't have juice of bitter gourd ever :) But you are right it is very healthy.

I'd love to hear what you think of the 7-day detox if you try it out. Sounds like a great way to cleanse the system!
