Video Transcript: “The Juice Lady” Shares Her Morning Routine for All Day Energy
Ty Bollinger: So talk about juicing.
Cherie Calbom: Juicing is my passion because we take these beautiful fruits and vegetables, mostly vegetables is what I recommend, maybe just a little fruit for the flavor.
Ty Bollinger: I apologize, because all I have here for props is a little bit of fruit.
Cherie Calbom: But imagine there are beautiful leafy greens here and maybe some carrots and cucumbers and celery and some ginger and a little lemon. That’s what I have for breakfast almost every day. So you juice all that up. You’ve got everything broken down so well that your body can begin to absorb it right away. So everybody is into fiber, fiber, fiber. “Oh, you’ve got to have all this fiber in your juice.”
But actually when it comes to juice as a supplement, like a liquid vitamin, mineral, enzyme, biophoton, phytonutrient glass of wonderful nutrients, it’s even better when it doesn’t have the fiber in there. The soluble yes, it’s got soluble fiber, but not the insoluble because it’s going to go right into your system.
It’s guesstimated that it’s at work in your system about 20 or 30 minutes. And that’s bringing that life right into your body, all those antioxidants that are binding up toxins and carrying them out of the body. And when we’re sick with cancer it’s even more important to do these kinds of things to heal the body.
Because as I see it, two primary reasons that people get sick: one is toxicity and number two is that we are undernourished in this country. People are not getting the vital nutrients that their bodies need. I just rattled all of those off really fast including biophotons and phytonutrients.
But we need all of these for all of the different reactions that our body has to do each day. If we don’t have those, things are not going to happen. Repairs are not going to happen, cleansing isn’t going to happen. So we must have them. So again back to the juice, broken down you can get a big concentrate of nutrients. A great big bowl that would take you maybe hours to eat, you can juice it all up pretty fast. It goes right into your system.
Ty Bollinger: And it’s so good; it’s so good.
Cherie Calbom: It’s delicious!
Ty Bollinger: I mean before I left on this trip here to travel to Seattle I had juiced a couple of days before. We had apples, and beets, and carrots, and celery, and all the things that you just mentioned. And it is so good when it goes down. You can taste the goodness, right?
Cherie Calbom: You taste it and you feel it. You know within about 20 or 30 minutes after I have a big glass of juice—that’s how I start my day and my husband’s. People ask him if he juices, he says, “yeah, I reach out my hand and she puts it in there.”
But you feel it. I feel life coming into my body. It’s like, I might wake up a little tired, I drink my big glass of juice and in about 30 minutes I think, “ha I’m feeling a lot better. I’ve got a lot more energy.” So it’s energizing, it’s healing, it’s rejuvenating. It begins to bring that life into the body that people so desperately need. And if you’re sick, you need that life more than at any other time or any other person. If you’re ill you really need that life in your body.
Ty Bollinger: Yes, especially if you have cancer. You have cancer because your body is sick. Cancer is the result of an already sick body so in order to get it well you need to give it that nutrition.
And when she says that it gives you energy we’re not talking about the energy that you get from these temporary drinks in the stores that can give you heart attacks and whatever else. We’re talking about energy that your body really can use. Not a quick fix.
Cherie Calbom: Not a quick fix. This is sustaining energy. It can keep you throughout the morning. Oftentimes I have this big glass of juice, and then I make a green smoothie with some of my juice. I do big batches of juice. I pour some in my Vitamix, add some chopped up greens to that and some supplements and avocado and then I eat a green smoothie. I say eat because it’s thick and I put it in a bowl.
Those are the two things I have in the morning and I’m not hungry. It’s very sustaining, it’s energizing. But it’s a sustaining energy just like you mentioned. It isn’t a spike up and then a big dip down like coffee would do or sugar would do.
