Choose Wisely # 8
Cranberry juice has many benefits which makes it a very healthy beverage choice on or off the protocol. Cranberry juice contains high levels of organic acids, which have an emulsifying effect upon fat deposits. This is a good reason to drink it when you are detoxing or watching your weight. For detoxing take 4 oz of cranberry juice and mix it with 28 oz of purified water and a little stevia.
It is very rich in antioxidants which are beneficial for the body in numerous ways. It is also a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K. Cranberries do not contain any cholesterol and the total fat content is only 0.1 gram, which makes cranberry juice a very low fat, healthy drink.
It is important to pick a cranberry juice that is just that – just cranberries. No added sugar or harmful additives. There are many different brands, so choose wisely. Pick one that has just cranberries listed in the ingredients or cranberry juice concentrate. Cranberries are not on Dr. Simeons protocol, so save it for every day when you are in Phase 3 stabilized.
