Thanks to everyone who recommended a juicer. I ended up getting the Jack Lalanne one from Costco. NOW - what are your favorite recipes for the juicer? Tomorrow I'm starting a juice fast for 3 days at the minimum. Hopefully I can go longer! Thanks!

Fresh Lemonade (you can’t beat it!) - 2 or 3 large lemons - 1/2 cup of water - Optional – Add apple to sweeten Peel lemons and cut stem of apple (Swap out 1 lemon for 1 lime and bingo, you got limeade). Add ice on those hot days. The Berry Fruit Juice Recipes Smoothie 2 cups of strawberries 2 cups of blueberries 1 and a 1/2 cup of raspberries Wash thoroughly and juice. This berry juice is loaded with antioxidants. The Subtle Strawberry 1/3 cup of strawberries 1 cup of blueberries 1 apple Wash all the ingredients well and juice. This one is also a favorite fruit juice recipes of ours. There’s just something about this combination. Kiwi and Pear Bear - 2 kiwis - 2 pears - 1 bear (just kidding!)

Simply Carrot - 5 Medium carrots This one is pretty simple! Wash and top the carrots, juice and enjoy. Wash your juicer immediately, otherwise the carrots will stain it. Simply Green Juice - 1 cup of spinach - 2 cups of kale - 2 cups of parsley - 1 cucumber - 3 celery stalks Add a little garlic and/or ginger if you like. Wash thoroughly and juice. Apple and Cucumber Zipper - 2 1/2 apples - 1/2 cucumber - 1? of ginger Remove apple stems and juice everything together. Favorite of mine! Alkaline Juicer Recipes Heaven - 1 cup of spinach - 1/2 cucumber - 2 stalks of celery including leaves - 3 carrots - 1/2 apple Wash all thoroughly, top the carrots, remove apple stem, juice and enjoy. The Cucapple - 1/2 cucumber - 2 apples Remove stems from apples, cut a cucumber in half and juice. The nice thing with apples and especially cucumbers, is you get a lot of juice out of them. This is a great when you just need something quick. Parsley Pep Up - 1 cup of parsley - 1/2 apple - 2 carrots - 3 celery stalks Wash all thoroughly, remove apple stem, top the carrots, juice and enjoy! Carrot and Apple Zip - 2 carrots - 1 apple - 1? of ginger Top carrots, remove apple stem and juice. Eye Eye Captain - 6 carrots - 1 cup of kale That’s right, it’s good for your eyes! Liver Health - 1/2 beet with greens - 3 apples Wash all thoroughly, remove apple stems and put the whole 1/2 a beet in. Green Juice Recipes Energizer - 2 apples - 1/2 cucumber - 1/2 lemon (peeled) - 1/2 cup of kale - 1/2 cup of spinach - 1/4 bunch of celery - 1/4 bulb of fennel - 1? of ginger - 1/4 head of romaine lettuce This one is a real blast, brimming with goodness. Sweet Green Juice 1 cucumber 1 carrot 1 green apple ¼ cup parsley ¼ cup mint 1 stalk of celery ½ inch of fresh ginger ½ lemon (peeled) Green juice recipes and green colored fruits and vegetables: One fundamental quality of green juice recipes is chlorophyll, which is the product of plants turning light into energy for insects and animals to eat. Without this, life as we know it, would not exist. Some of the many amazing benefits of chlorophyll include; powerful detoxifying properties including that of the liver, as well as removing unfriendly bacteria, parasites and mold. Chlorophyll can also improve our blood quality due to its molecular make up, similar to hemoglobin. It helps increase red blood cell count and increases the movement of oxygen throughout our blood. It also helps the repair and growth of all tissues in the body.

It really is. One of my favourite is Carrot/Spinach: 9 carrots, a good handful of spinach. Juice. I save the pulp from all my juices and throw into desserts, meatloaf, soups, sauces etc. It makes them taste wonderful. Also adds vitamins.

Hey Anita, just want to encourage you in your juice fast. It's great to give your body a rest... I always feel fantastic after a couple days of juicing. Don't listen to the naysayers... some people always feel the need to weigh in with negativity.

My friend did that juice diet for a month and lost 35 pounds. Then the next 5 months he added food and lost a total of 65 pounds in 6 months. If you have the will power do it! I am amazed at how good he looks in that short of time.
