      My favorite juicer recipe is apples, carrots, and celery. I know pretty basic, but I will recommend it to all people who may be new to juicing.It's easier for the stomach to breakdown, digest, and assimilate foods that have been juiced as opposed to eating solid foods.

      @Patricia, yes you're right, it's easier to have 7 to 8 servings of juice per day than plain water.

      @midnightbliss, great idea, just mix any kind of fruits with plain yogurt and you'll have a great and healhty dessert.

      @J Sunhawk, wow..grapes? in your own yard? that's must be very fresh. Thank you for visiting my hub :)

      Making juice from fresh fruit is always the best for you. We grow grapes and make grape juice. Fresh-squeezed orange juice is also a favorite.

      Thanks, Febriedethan, I love juicing. I find it hard to eat 7 - 8 servings per day as recommended, but through juicing you can. I know people would think you don't the fiber through juicing as you would just eating the fruits & veggies out right, but I don't loose much fiber and much of the pulp can be reused in cooking.

      I have proven it myself that fruit and vegetable juice is very healthful. I myself always prepare juice for my family members regarding the importance and benefits of those juice. It really works that one glass of juice every day keeps the doctor away.
