Posted by Nat B on 3 months ago

Hi all! I am wanting to hear about your juicing recipes. I am boring using Joe's recipe of kale or spinach. apples, ginger, cucumber, and lemon and adding whatever sounds good. I haven't added celery yet is that okay? Anyway just a slight headache, otherwise doing fine.

    Apple Carrot is a time-honored juice recipe. You don't hear much about carrots here because of the calories/sugar they have, but they are the core of juices you drink for health. If you are drinking for weight loss, you are going to use cucumber in almost everything because cucumbers thin the juice out, reduce calories and help make nasty tasting greens palatable. If you are drinking juice for health, leave out the cucumber and use 1/4 as much greens.

    My go-to juice is a half dozen carrots, and apple or two and a cucumber. The cucumber waters it down and reduces the calorie count, making a bit bland but good for weight loss. If you are juicing for health instead of weight loss, don't add the cucumber.

    Juice for health:

    1 apple
    6 carrots
    handful of parsely OR small amount of brocolli

    Juice for weight loss:

    1 apple
    6 carrots
    1 cucumber
    Handful of greens of your choice, or a zuchinni, or a quarter of a beet.

    Easy on the brocolli - it's delicious but strong, and too much will give you horrible gas.

    Thanks for the advice! I tried celery in my juice for the first time, didn't like the flavor. Will try carrots next. I don't mind the cucumber. Pineapple gave me some heartburn. It's all about our individual bodies, and what they like and don't like. I am doing this both for health and weight loss. I will try beets too. What greens do you use besides spinach and kale?

    Nat B, I use what I can get... at Sprouts near my house usually.

    Romaine is considered mild.

    I get dandelion greens (don't use the red dandelions myself, either I didn't like them or they gave me problems, don't remember?).

    I don't like mustard and turnip greens, though mustards are supposed to be good for inflammation if I remember? Too spicey for me, could only take tiny bits so I don't like to buy a whole bunch and waste it.

    I don't like arugula but some crave it. It smells bad to me; I listen to that.

    Parsley - I like it and it's great detox.

    Beet greens -- buy the beets and use the greens or eat in salads. I prefer red and think my body craves them. Gold beets really do nothing for me and the rainbow/white or stripey ones as well... but the greens seem the same with any color. I look at them as free greens because I buy the beet roots in bunches for less than buying them without greens.

    Some here use fennel and I've tried it and bok choy.

    Don't forget cabbages - some juices have that in them.

    Last Summer as a cost aide, I bought a good bit of watermelons on sale, and stripped the red fruit for others to eat. I juiced the rind to add volume, as a sort of carrier for our green juices. (We had 3 here on juice fasting at a time.)

    Don't forget you're getting greens in the peels of cukes for instance. Some people use broccoli.

    Oh, and we add a pound of green beans to green juices sometimes -- I tried adding 2 lbs once and it was too much.

    Really, amongst what I add in, I just cram as much in there as I can get in to green juices.

    See you over on the groups, hopefully.

    This is not the most user friendly website. Anyway what tomatoes do you prefer to juice? I'm going shopping and just wondering which are good for juicing.

    For my budget, the tomatoes good to juice are the ones on sale that week. :) Best would be homegrown but I am a failed gardener. I wish it weren't so. I'd like to be a gardener. But I am not. I am so lucky that I have good produce available in the stores.

    okay so now I am on day 7. The last few days have been hungry days. What can I do? Maybe make an extra juice. I want food but feel good otherwise. Wanted to go for 13 days. How do you get thru the Hangrys?!

    How are, Nat B? Did you make it to 13 days?
