[♪♪] Hello, hello. Hello, hello! Hi, it’s Olivier. [Laughs] So, I know it’s been awhile since I recorded a video, but trust me, this one today is going to be fantastic because we’re going to hit two goals with one rock. So see, one of the goals of this video is to present a vegetable juice that can accelerate healing from wounds, such as the one I got this morning. I got a cyst removed on my wrist. ♪ A cyst removed on my wrist ♪ So I have myself this need for that type of juice, so I did some research and I found out what was the best vegetables and vitamins to achieve that goal. That’s goal number one. Goal number two, well, I got a message from one of my viewers, Tony, who wrote me, I’m trying to make one vegetable juice with my Nutri Ninja and the juice tastes like shit. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. So I proposed to Tony that I’d look at his recipe and try to fix it. And the recipe, in my opinion, nothing is bad in it. You put a tomato, half a carrot, half celery, a leaf of kale, and half broccoli. So all is good. Before tweaking that recipe to make it taste better, just to let you know, there’s one way you could make it healthier, simply by adding some fat, such as one teaspoon of coconut oil and adding a quarter or half of an avocado for the fat. What doing that does for your juice is make the vitamin A in your juice better absorbed, such as in the one in the carrot and broccoli and kale or spinach. That’s the first change. I have nothing against kale. If I did not have two goals, if the main focus of the video was to address Tony’s problem, I wouldn’t have changed kale with spinach, but because of my goal of presenting a juice that has properties facilitating wound healing, I did replace the kale with the spinach. The reason is that spinach has zinc. Zinc helps wounds to heal. Zinc helps wounds to heal. So that’s change number one from Tony’s recipe. So what I’m going to add to address the taste of Tony’s juice, well, I’m going to add some cucumber, a small chunk of ginger, and a thin slice of onion. That should help. Then after that it’s only a question of spice, in my opinion. So we’re going to add some pepper, some Himalyan pink salt. and I’m going to add Tobasco sauce. Basically, you just spice your juice based on your taste. I have to be careful because I like my stuff very spicy. This is crushed red pepper. If I’m not careful, and I want to share juice, usually I put hot spices in it, there is only me who can drink it. So know the people who are going to drink the juice, know yourself, know what you like in terms of spice. Something else I could have added I’m thinking about it as I talk, a quarter of lemon. Pretty sure I think a quarter of lemon in that juice would have added something very interesting in terms of taste. So I believe what I added to Tony’s recipe, in theory, will address the taste issue. Now, I’m going to explain. This juice is good to accelerate the healing of wounds. First of all, allow me to say that, I added a scoop of whey protein. The type I use is extremely pure. It’s 93% pure. It’s so pure, it’s flavorless. I prefer it like that. Be careful because if you have whey protein that tastes like chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry, it may not be very good to use that in a vegetable juice recipe. But this one is without flavor, so it’s perfect. If you want your body to heal rapidly, protein is one element. Fat is the second element. So you can find it in milk, meat, yogurt, but in my juice, it’s coconut oil and avocado. Then you have vitamin A that can be found in the carrot, spinach, and broccoli. Along with the zinc it helps the creation of cells and their growth. So that’s one thing that vitamin A does. Then you have vitamin C which is contained in the tomato. That is good to be used to produce collagen. Collagen is good for wound healing. I think I’ve iterated all the properties. So, da, da, da. Moment of truth. There’s a side note. Nutri Ninja is a very inexpensive blender and I’m about to — it starts to go less well than when I bought it. So I think I have it for over a year now. I think it’s about time I replace it. I’m entertaining the idea of organizaing a contest or survey about that type of blender you would like to see me using. Do I buy another Nutri Ninja, Vitamix, or any other brand? Should I try the real juicer? I’m open to ideas, but I’m thinking about how I could make the decision process fun and entertaining for my viewership as well. Okay. Let’s try it out. [Blender whirring] Okay. Mmmm! Smells good. It smells good. Oh, will it tastes good ? Tony, what do you think? Oh, I’m not sure I want to tell you if it’s good. Let me think about it. No, honestly, it’s fabulous. It’s far from tasting like shit. Not only, you have a vegetable juice recipe that tastes good now. You also have a juice that is going to be helpful to accelerate wound healing. So next time you scrape your knee or something, here you go. I hope you enjoyed this video.
