Wheatgrass Birthday Cake Yummy!!! LOL Day 3

Hi Everyone, today is my birthday and instead of cake I am juicing!  Guess what I got for my birthday!  Yep a Flat Of WheatGrass WOO HOOO.  So I made a Wheat Grass Slushy and yes I added a little extra (shhh) hahaha.  Well I combined wheatgrass, baby spinach and lime! Packed a super punch! I have been so overwhelmed with all the birthday wishes and it has just been an awesome day!  I still haven't showered (ewww) lol I have been busy all day with my website and getting ready for a fund raiser party on Friday.  So, I want to thank my dearest friend Melissa Sobrin of SeekingSitters in Orlando Florida for opening her heart and her home to help raise money for Isabella Dean.  Isabella Dean is a 2 year old recently diagnosed with Leukemia.  I found about her through a friend I met through my juicing blog, Stacey and her mom Senaf.  When I heard Isabella's story from Stacey I couldn't help but tear up!  This beautiful baby girl was going to endure so much and her family must be so distraught with this recent news.  I have 3 children and tried to put myself in their shoes and just couldn't deal with it.  The strenght they will need, comes from everyone praying and banding together to help heal this poor child get the treatments she needs to continue life.  The love has been pouring in and I cannot express how awesome that has been.  So, I felt I need to do something!  Please visit my web page http://www.wowbrightsmiles.com/uncategorized/raffle-for-sweet-little-2-year-old-izzy-recently-diagnosed-with-leukemia/ and you can purchase your raffle tickets or share this link with your friends and family!  All the proceeds will be donated to Isabella and her family to help with ongoing medical needs to help Isabella continue to live and happy and healthy life. 




Health Benefits of Limes

  • Cholesterol Reduction
    Limes and other citrus fruit have also been associated with reducing cholesterol. In lab tests, it has been found that human liver cells produced less apo B, a compound associated with higher cholesterol levels, when exposed to limonin.
  • Cancer
    Laboratory tests of both animal and human cells have shown that citrus limonoids (found in lime and other citrus fruits) can help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach, and colon. Limonen works on the body to increase the levels of liver enzymes involved in detoxifying carcinogens.
    New research at the Agricultural Research Service in northern California, has shown that humans can easily use the limonoid called limonin, and therefore enjoy all its health benefits, simply by biting into citrus fruit. One of its main features is that it can stay in the body for up to 24 hours after consumption, making it an effective way to reduce the growth of cancer cells.
  • Cholera
    Studies have shown that the high acid levels in limejuice are very effective in both inhibiting the growth of and killing cholera in food.
    In a cholera epidemic in Guinea-Bissau in West Africa in October 1994, lime-rich meals acted as a preventative for patients who consumed them.
    In a laboratory controlled preparation of ceviche, large masses of cholera in contaminated fish were eliminated after immersion in limejuice. After 5 minutes of immersion there was a 99% reduction of the initial bacterial mass and after 2 hours no cholera was detected. Thus limes and limejuice are greatly recommended to add to food and sauces in areas where the possibility of cholera is high, like rural and slum populations in the tropics and subtropics.
  • Mosquito repellentThe volatile oil components extracted from Kaffir lime contains five sesquiterpene hydrocarbons and two sesquiterpene alcohols. Translated into English, lime extract has been shown to be effective as a mosquito repellent for up to three hours.
  • Nutrients
    Limes are an excellent source of vitamin C. They are a good source of vitamin B6, potassium, folic acid and flavonoids.
