(NaturalNews) Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) teaches wild foods harvesting in a short video about harvesting nopal cactus fruit and turning it into nutritious, medicinal juice!

In the video, Mike Adams demonstrates how to harvest prickly pear cactus fruit (without getting stuck by the spines), how to press the juice out of the cactus fruit (using a juice press, see below), and how to mix the final juice with tea to make a delicious wild foods beverage!

To press out the cactus fruit juice, Adams uses a Norwalk Juicer which features a powerful juice press. Because many people don't have a juice press, the alternative way to accomplish the same thing is to blend the cactus fruits in a Vita-Mix blender, pour the slurry into nut milk bags, then squeeze the juice out of the nut milk bags. Nut milk bags are available at the NaturalNews Store: http://store.naturalnews.com

Harvesting tips

Prickly pear cactus fruit juice is almost incandescent purple -- it's a beautiful color made of phyto-pigments that are also powerful medicine. You've often heard to eat all the different colors of fresh foods, right? Well, cactus fruit has some of the most powerful colors you've ever seen in nature, similar to the color intensity of something like spirulina or astaxanthin.

The best part about harvesting cactus fruit is that it's FREE, and it's widely available throughout the world where the climate doesn't get too cold in the winter. You'll find cactus fruits in the South of the USA, Central America, South America, Australia, China, the Middle East and many other regions.

Harvesting tip: Always leave some cactus fruit for the birds. This is one of their important food sources. When harvesting wild foods, never harvest the entire plant, obviously. (Nature isn't a farm operation!)

"Americans need to get back to recognizing and using the food that grows all around them," said Adams. "People drive by FREE food every day on the way to the grocery store, and then they complain about food prices being so high. Maybe the answer is to stop getting all your food indoors and start finding more of it out in nature where it really grows!"

Along those lines, NaturalNews.TV recently launched a course called FREE Food and Medicine which teaches that exact principle:

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation.

Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
