Posts Tagged ‘Vegetable and Fruit Juicing’


Enjoy Juicing

Juiced fruits and veggies are delicious, refreshing (especially in the hot weather), so simple to prepare, are a great source of nutrients and a way to cleanse your system, or get a jump start on your decision to change your eating habits.  You will of course need a good juicer as these cannot be done (like smoothies) in a blender.  But it is one of the favorite things in my kitchen as it gives me an easy way to relieve a sudden urge for something “good” to drink, or for a quick snack when I don’t have time to cook.  And since you get quite a few veggies or fruits into just one glass, you get to “eat”  a lot more of these than you would if you sat down to eat them whole. Try and use organic produce if possible.  The price difference, at least for veggies, is not that great and it is definitely worth the little extra for what you are getting ( and NOT getting) in organic produce.

Just a few of photos:

the first (above) was made with a small beet, 2 carrots and 4 stalks of celery including some leaves.

The second with 2 apples and 4 stalks of celery including leaves.

The third (below) with 3 carrots and 5 stalks of celery including leaves. (I am adding celery to all my juices at the moment since I am working on cleansing after Eating My Way Through New Jersey and (Vegan Philadelphia.)

You can combine almost anything in these drinks, the only limitation is your imagination.  Celery is very high in calcium and also an excellent cleansing agent.  Beets are extremely “powerful” in their cleansing action so use a small amount to begin with and go slow.  Carrots are delicious, even alone.  You can add parsley, romaine lettuce, spinach or any other greens you have around.  A sprig of mint or spearmint. The list is endless.  Start experimenting!  I’d love to hear from you with your combinations,how they tasted, etc.

Enjoy Juicing

with love light and JOY
