More Simple Juicing Recipes
As a follow-up to three previously published hubs, Simple Juicing Recipes, Juicing my Way Back to Healthy, and Juicing my Way Back to Healthy Part 2, I have decided to add even more nutritious and tasty juice recipes.
Juicing is a great way to cleanse the body, boost the immune system, lose weight, and power-pack the body with nutrients.
I juice often, and feel the benefits of doing so almost immediately. I feel more alert and energized. With ailments that may never go away, juicing fruits and vegetables helps fuel my body so that I am able to carry-on a normal life, free (for the most part) of pain and illness.
Between January of 2010 and January of 2011, I had three surgeries, was rushed to the hospital twice, and was unable to work for months (combined). I was prescribed numerous medications, was unable to exercise normally, and was told that I needed to have major surgery. I have not taken any prescribed medications (rarely, I take ibuprofen, as needed) since March of 2011, and avoided having to have that major surgery and regular pain shots. I take vitamins daily, exercise as much as possible, have changed my attitude about life and living, and am more conscience of what I put into my body. I normally am sick (as in, out of work and in bed for a week plus) 3-4 times a year. I have been sick once this year, and it only lasted a couple of days.
Below are a few recipes that I have formulated myself. I tend to juice what sounds good at the time or what my body needs most at the time, and throw together whatever I feel may be tasty. I hope that you find them just as delectable, and that this may inspire you to try juicing.
I work in the healthcare industry, but am not a doctor. I suggest that if you are pregnant, or have a disease or disorder that is being monitored by a doctor, that you consult your physician prior to juicing, especially if doing so for a lengthy period of time.
I rarely measure my ingredients prior to juicing. Therefore, a few of the recipes will be general estimates for the amounts used.
When juicing, it can be unpredictable how much juice is yielded from certain fruits and vegetables. Therefore, I sometimes find the need to add more of some things, after I have juiced what I had orginally planned.
The following recipes are for 2 - 12 oz. servings. Your result may vary.
- 1 pomegranate
- 2 cups seedless grapes
- 1 lime
- 1 cucumber
- 1 cup fresh kale
