Juicy Juice Combinations

April 4, 2007

*I have a Norwalk Juicer and a Green Star 1000 Juicer. I almost always use the Norwalk.

Apple Juice – 2-3 apples. Just cut to fit in juicer – seeds, skin and all. If autumn had a flavor, it would surely be this.

Coconut Green Juice – Juice of one young coconut and 2 heaping T Greener Grasses. Blend. It tastes rich and has a malt-like flavor.

Lemon Water – Squeeze 1 lemon in warm water. Nice in the morning, especially.

Mosh Pit JuiceBase: Using carrot, celery and romaine lettuce as the base, I do my gallon+ juice for the day adding random veggies and herbs to the mix. I follow intuition for quantity and kind of veggies. Additions include: cabbage, spinach, chard, kale, parsley, cucumber and beet. Unusual greats are: garlic cloves, cilantro, turmeric, ginger, and red bell pepper.
Benefit:
don’t have to spend the energy creating separate juice combos.
Possible drawback
: all juices for the day taste the same.

Orange Juice – 2-3 oranges, squeezed. OR, cut them up and suck the essence. ((Anyone remember Bunnicula?)).  Great after exercising, as blood sugar is not affected 25-40 minutes after a decent workout.
