Morning Garlic Shots

When I first introduced garlic shots, I got a little too excited and went hardcore; one orange juiced with one clove of garlic. They were absolutely potent and pretty brutal to choke down first thing in the morning. So I experimented with other ingredients that still allowed me to have the full benefits of a whole clove of garlic. This batch was much more manageable, and loaded with other health benefits too!

This recipe makes one weeks worth of shots.
-one small bag of whole carrots (for calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus)

-6 or 7 stalks of celery (aids in digestion)
-7 cloves of garlic (vitamin B6, and a good source of selenium, manganese, and vitamin C. Minerals include calcium, phosphorous, iron, copper and potassium )
-Few knobs of ginger (alleviates GI distress)
-Handfull of turmeric roots (stops blood flow to fat cells so they cannot reproduce)

I juiced each ingredient individually and put them into separate containers. Once all were juiced, I distributed the garlic, ginger & turmeric into 7 shot-sized Tupperware containers. Then I mostly filled the containers with the carrot juice, and topped each off with a splash of celery juice. Covered with lids, shook well, and stored in the refrigerator. 

Taking them on an empty stomach first thing in the morning gives your body the best benefits & absorption.
