What is the best "healing" food you can eat?
In our opinion, raw, organic, green juices offer the greatest healing power of any food. Kale, broccoli, mustard greens, endive, chard whole or as a juice are all super foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein. Other great foods to add to a green juice or smoothie are celery, spirulina (algae), cilantro, cabbage, cucumbers, various sprouts and more. Citrus fruits also deliver healing benefits but should usually be taken on their own.
