I am going to start juicing this weekend. It isn't for weight loss purposes really but just for general health, as I have a lot of health problems. What are your favorite combinations, for added energy especially?
I really liked the Kale, Cucumber and Apple surprisingly!
I am so new to this that any ideas would be great!

It is funny, I HATE cucumbers but when I juice it doesn't bother me:)

What is your base that you use?

idk but, I love avocado smoothies so maybe they'd make good juice as well? I'd try it with something else mixed.

I just started to incorporate juicing.
What I drink daily now:
1-1 1/2 bag of spinach
2 celery stalks ( careful with celery since it has a STRONG taste to it juiced)
4 cucumbers
5-10 carrots
3-4 apples



This makes roughly 40oz of juice



To shake it up a bit, I will substitute the apples for oranges or I'll throw strawberries and blackberries into the juicer for a sweeter taste.

That is about what I was thinking:D How long will the refrigerated juice last for?
I am thinking of doing a 7 day fast and then try to start a clean diet (with the all family) and continue to add in the juice. My daughters love it, so I may let him have it as a dessert or a quick snack on the run. I really want us to change our eating habits and this will be a good start. Have you done a pure fast?

Juice loses it's nutritional value FAST. As short as 15 mins from the time it was juiced. It can be kept in something like a mason jar sealed tight in your refrigerator for no more than 24hrs.
I prep and juice the night before.



I haven't done any fasting. I just incorporate it into what I currently eat.
I would have to double or triple the amount of juice I drink now for a fast and I don't have time for all that prep work :lol:



My son loves to help me prep and juice it. He'll have a glass of it fresh from the juicer.

How many oz are your drinking a day?
The juices are PACKED with vitamins and nutrition so you don't have to actually eat anything solid if you don't want to (if you are drinking enough of course).
