Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a great recipe for anyone on an autoimmune nutrition plan, phase II of our Digestive Health restoration program or the Cancer Cleanse program. If you are on the digestive health plan, than be sure not to add the avocado in until phase III, when you are able to add that back.
This recipe is loaded with powerful anti-oxidant phytonutrients that destroy cancer stem cells and detoxify bad estrogen metabolites. Do your best to get these ingredients organic in order to avoid any toxic pesticides and herbicides.
If you are struggling with digestive issues, be sure to grate the carrot and the radishes to make them easier on the digestive system. Black olives are typically well-tolerated and are a great source of good fats.
Cruciferious sprouts such as broccoli, kale and arugula are the most nutritious. Look for the ones that are available to you at your local health food store or farmer’s market. You can also find dried ginger and turmeric at your health food store or Farmer’s market. If you are unable to find it, you can also use the ground form.
