I try to juice 30 minutes within waking up every morning. Jeremy also likes to grab a juice before he heads out the door. It’s a great boost of energy while cleansing the body. I don’t juice as a meal replacement. I juice before breakfast and that is it. I eat about an hour or two after my juice.
Here are a couple of my favorite juices I like to make!
1 orange, 2 cups baby carrots, 1 grapefruit, 1 lemon, 3 celery sticks, 1/2 inch ginger, 1 cucumber. (Peel is washed and left on all fruits and vegetables)
2 pears, 1 lemon, 1 grapefruit, 2 cups spinach, 3 celery sticks, 1/2 inch ginger, 1 cucumber
(Peel is washed and left on all fruits and vegetables)
2 oranges, 2 cups of carrots, 1 lime, 6 large celery sticks, 1/2 inch ginger, 1 cucumber (keep peel on all fruits but peel the cucumber)
What kind of juicer do I have? A Cuisineart CJE-1000 and I bought it at Macy’s.
The juice is better for you if you drink it right away. It starts to lose nutrients the longer it sits. If you plan on storing it for a while, make sure it’s in a closed tight container and refrigerated.
