Have you ever read what is in those “all natural” and “fresh” juices? They are not even close to fresh or natural. So without going off on a tirade about them, here is my favorite way to start the day out! And yes, I love coffee, but coffee is acidic and this juice is cleansing and alkaline. So it is a GREAT way to cleanse the blood and get your daily vitamins in.
You will need a juicer, so if you do not have one check out the
Breville Compact Juicer. It is one of the best investments you can make for your health. Now you can drink fresh natural juices the real way, and your kids will love it too.
Try this veggie juice recipe for adults (makes about two large glasses):
- 2 large handfuls of spinach
- 8 large carrots
- one kale leaf
- 2 green chard leaves
- one celery stalk
- 2 whole apples, cut in half
- one whole lemon, cut in half
- one half of a red beet

What’s great about juicing with the Breville is there is no need to peel or cut the ends off of the carrots or other veggies. Just wash all produce thoroughly!
Here is a recipe your kids will love:
- one apple
- one quarter lemon
- one carrot
- small handful of grapes
- handful of spinach
And our Top TEN reasons to juice:
- Enzymes! Aids in digesting, stimulating the brain, cellular energy & repairing tissue.
- Prevents disease by keeping the blood more alkaline and feeding it with healthy enzymes.
- FRESH, natural nutrients (no added sugars like those you would find in the juices on the supermarket shelves).
- Less digestive work s your body can focus on other things, like healing itself!
- Nutrients are absorbed quickly and more efficiently into your body.
- Healthy sugar (juices contain simple sugars) that your body can actually use.
- Phytochemicals. These are only found in fruits & veggies and prevent specific diseases.
- Vitamins and minerals.
- Juicing itself is a discipline that carries over into other health practices.
- Used as a meal replacement, juicing can significantly reduce overall calorie intake per day, and therefore increase most people’s health with just that benefit.
