I am in dire need of some detox after this past week… Too many pies, crepes, and sweet potatoes for me. I don’t know about you, but I am feelin pretty gross! My body needs some tlc. So I am going to do lots of juicing and cardio this week to detox. First thing in the morning I will have some fresh juice and go to spin class and muscle class.
I have tried a lot of juicing recipes… and after trial and error I think I found the one I like best (with the least amount of calories/sugars/carbs, that still tastes good).
-apples
-tomatos
-spinach
-oranges
-cucumbers
-carrots
I dont do any precise amounts… what is in this picture is about what I do, except about another handful of spinach. But I kinda just go crazy and throw a bunch of stuff in.
I don’t like celery in mine.. the taste overpowers everything and kinda makes me sick. And each time I juice, I always juice enough for 3 days, 3 glasses each of those days. I find it annoying cleaning my juicer and I dont want to do it 3 times a day, so I do bulk!
Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend!
happy detoxing.

  1. I heard a few times before that the juice loses a lot of nutrients when you don’t drink it right away. I always wanted to juice in bulk and just freeze it but i’m afraid all the healthy benefits will be lost! Do you know if this is true?

  2. Thanks for sharing! 🙂 I have been juicing for a while now, but I always like to hear what sort of recipes other ‘juicers’ use.

    One I like that’s pretty simple is just a small cucumber, the juice of one lemon, a tablespoon of ginger and sparkling water and/or ice (if you prefer smoothies). You can even make it in the blender if you don’t feel like pulling out the juicer. It’s perfect during the summer and serves as an easy, quick refreshing detox!

  3. It loses some nutrients as it oxidizes. That juice sounds yummy! I didn’t like celery but it grew up me. Same with cucumber. I’m upping the workouts and juicing too!
