Bitter Melon Treat

Updated: Oct 23, 2020


Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) is traditionally used as a medical food for stomach complaints, as a laxative, and to help balance blood sugars for diabetics.

Combining bitter melon with beets, which help the liver and gallbladder functions, is a great way to start the day.

Ingredients:

  • bitter melon

  • beets

  • swiss chard

  • lime

  • 2 scoops Cleanse (protein plus metabolic detox) 2 scoops Nourish (protein plus power nutrients)

  • ginger root

  • stevia (optional)

  • cucumber

The amounts will vary depending on which flavor you want to lead. It is important to experiment especially when using bitter tasting produce. Since the bitter foods contain more nutrients, stevia can also be used to offset the taste.

The best way to take the Nourish/Cleanse shake mix is by adding it to water without any additional ingredients. Shake recipes are an option for those needing more variety however, the less ingredients added the better.
