Juicing Recipes – Dandelion Greens, Comfrey And Nettle Leaf

If you and I were trapped in the forest and we were thirsty / starving and all of a sudden a juicer parachuted in from our sponsors and nothing else was around… how would we survive? (Think Juicing Games)

We would juice weeds! (Not Juicing Marijuana.)

We would juice wild greens silly. I’m sure you’ve seen them hanging out like the red headed step child in the Whole Foods market begging for attention, often to be overlooked by the much more popular Lenny The Lacinto Kale.

Pfft. “Kale is the new beef!” Over and over this new slogan plays in the Dandelion greens little head.

How do you think she feels?

Poor girl.

Secretly knowing that she deserves much more. Powerful and packed with a potent punch of phytonutrients…

EVEN MORE NUTRIENTS THAN JUICING KALE!

The humble and overlooked Dandelion Green and her friends Comfrey and Stinging Nettles are often meditating in the corner talking about, how one day the secret will get out and they will have to remain ego-less.

Now let’s put our juicing caps on shall we?

Don’t know what juicing these wild greens are good for?

Have you ever taken a walk outside and seen the little yellow flowers that seem to pop up over night?

Dandelion Greens

Or have you ever been stung by the stinging nettle?

It would take an entire day to get over the sting. (I was a whimp as a kid) Ask my mother. When I was 7 in the hottest Michigan months I used to wear swamp boots, for fear of contracting lime disease. LOL – Don’t tell anyone. I’m not as super-hero’esq as I appear.

Drinking them in tinctures and/or herbal infusions are quite different from juicing them. Just make sure you really know what you are juicing… I don’t want to have to have the FitLife juicing squad heli-drop from the sky to kick your booty. Just make ‘sure’ you know what greens to be juicing. This is why we say, purchase them from stores, instead of randomly picking them up in the open fields, parks or forests. Besides, who knows what kinds of pesticides people are using on their lawns now. You could wake up with a third eye. (Not the kind that you want, and no you can’t shoot lasers out of it.)

Miraculously these three different greens pack a powerful punch when they are juiced. And no, the stinging Nettles do not get into rip your throat open when you are juicing them! And no, the yellow flowers that accompany them are not suggested for juicing.

How do you find Comfrey, Stinging Nettles and Dandelion Greens To Use For Juicing?

Most all Farmer’s Markets carry them, and Co-ops have them in the summertime. High five your produce grocer or local farmer and ask her where you can find them to make some amazing juicing recipes? Then do what I do… and talk them into juicing, their family into juicing and all of their neighborhood into juicing.

What’s the best way to select them?

Dandelion Greens are best picked when they are young. The older the leaves, the more bitter they will taste.

Suppose your doctor tells you, on your next visit, that he has just discovered a miracle drug which, when eaten as a part of your daily diet or taken as a beverage, could, depending on the peculiarities of your body chemistry: prevent or cure liver diseases, such as hepatitis or jaundice; act as a tonic and gentle diuretic to purify your blood, cleanse your system, dissolve kidney stones, and otherwise improve gastro-intestinal health; assist in weight reduction; cleanse your skin and eliminate acne; improve your bowel function, working equally well to relieve both constipation and diarrhea; prevent or lower high blood pressure; prevent or cure anemia; lower your serum cholesterol by as much as half; eliminate or drastically reduce acid indigestion and gas buildup by cutting the heaviness of fatty foods; prevent or cure various forms of cancer; prevent or control diabetes mellitus; and, at the same time, have no negative side effects and selectively act on only what ails you. If he gave you a prescription for this miracle medicine, would you use it religiously at first to solve whatever the problem is and then consistently for preventative body maintenance?

All the above curative functions, and more, have been attributed to one plant known to everyone, Taraxacum officinale, which means the “Official Remedy for Disorders.” We call it the common dandelion. – Peter Gail –

The genus name for comfrey is Symphytum, which means to “unite or knit together.” The name com-firma means, simply, “knitting of bones.”

Comfrey contains a special substance called allantoin, which is a cell proliferative. In other words, it makes cells grow faster. This is one of the reasons why comfrey-treated bones knit so fast, wounds mend so quickly, and burns heal with such little scarring. 

Comfrey leaves follow the Dandelion Greens as far as picking goes. But if you don’t have them growing in your neighborhood (we don’t really suggest doing this because people use pesticides on their lawn and also pesticides for spiders) so we suggest buying them from the Health Food Stores, Co-ops and other Farmer’s Markets.

Stinging Nettles ~ follow the same course. The larger they are, they more bitter they are. Buy them (wrapped) so that your hands do not touch the leaves. For over 2,000 years, doctors have recognized the herb’s ability to stop all kinds of internal and external bleeding, and considered it a good blood purifier. Juicing it has been found to help cure mucus congestion, skin irritations, water retention, and diarrhea. The beverage is also said to help nursing mothers produce milk . . . and stimulate the digestive glands of the stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, and gall bladder.

Here are some fantastic juicing combinations and I have been juicing for the past six or seven years:

(Just as an FYI….when you use these greens in the juicing recipes they are very potent, and we suggest you start slowly, and don’t drink more than 8 ounces at a time) because you may incur a bit of diarrhea, intestinal cramping or nausea. This juicing recipe will give you 8 ounces, whereas juicing this tonic once a day for ten days without having any kind of negative reaction. If you want to amp it up a bit, then double the juicing recipe for one person, 16 ounces.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
