Fruits and veggies for juicingI vaguely remember the first time I had fresh juice. I was young, probably about 10-12 years old and all I remember is that my dad put a bunch of carrots into a really loud machine and out came the sweetest, yummiest drink I had ever had. If I hadn’t seen him make it with my own eyes, I would have never believed that it was made of vegetables! I could have drank a whole gallon of this magical juice and thought ‘Oh what great eyesight I’ll have!’.

Years later, I attempted to make my own magical carrot juice. Except mine didn’t quite taste how my Dad’s did. I think it was because all I used was carrots but as I said, that was the only main ingredient that my young memory could retain. I swore off juice, thinking it must have been some little kid deception technique my Dad had used to get me to consume my vegetables.

Thankfully, in my adult life, I had another encounter with this magical juice. I was at my Aunt’s house and she was fixing me up a nutritious lunch (which so happened to include liquid fruits and vegetables). When she walked over to the table with a cup full of neon orange, I was more than skeptical. I was afraid to fall in love with the thought that I could find my childhood juice memory again. I took a sip and my taste buds sung with nostalgia. It was sweet, yummy and really just tasted healthy. I ran to the kitchen and begged her to tell me exactly what she had put in it! The recipe is forever engrained in my memory so I will now share it with you. If you are new to juicing, you may find the juicing quickstart guide helpful.

– 6 to 8 long carrots-ginger root (at least an inch long), lemon, peeled-2 gala apples, cored-2 to 3 celery stalks

After that day, I made it my mission to work money into my budget for one of those fancy-schmancy juicers. I did my research, pinched my pennies and settled on the best of the best. I have since become quite the juicing master! There is no combination of fruits or veggies that I haven’t tried. (If you use lime, make sure it compliments what else you are juicing with it – tart doesn’t even describe!). I have found that whenever I try to share my love for juicing, some people just don’t get it. Why would you want to drink your vegetables? Here are some quick benefits of juicing.

Benefits of Juicing

  • Easier way for your body to break down the nutrients you are giving it – think of the juice as a natural IV!
  • Easily digestible
  • Tastes wonderful and you can add different herbs such as garlic, ginger, etc in order to maximize the cleansing benefits on your system.
  • It’s healthy and nutritious
  • If needed, it can serve as a complete meal replacement

The internet has tons of different juicing recipes and the juicer that I got even came with it’s own recipe book. I highly suggest that you give juicing a try and see if there are some secret, hidden, magical benefits of juicing for you too! And, while you’re researching healthy juice options, check out this site for even more ideas!

    I’ve been seriously debating over the past few weeks as to whether or not I want to try this. I did some research on the weekend for different types of machines. What type of machine did you end up getting? Also, would you say that juicing helped you lose weight or just helped you feel healthier? I will go check out your quickstart guide too.
