Make Fresh Juice

Juices and Smoothies are an excellent way to consume a load of nutrients all at once. There are no hard and fast rules. Experimentation is key. I think it’s best to start simple and juice 2-3 items at a time. Try carrot, apple ginger or pineapple, cucumber, kale.

I use a Breville Juicer, but you don’t need a juicer to make amazing juice. Try this blender method.

Don’t throw away the leftover pulp!

Add it to soup to create a base
Saute it with rice or quinoa
Mix it into veggie burger or fritter recipes
Use it in baked goods
Dehydrate it into homemade fruit leathers
Add it to compost

Happy Juicing!
