Juicing, Days 10-12

September 10th: All pits should be removed from fruit before juicing with the exception of citrus fruits, grapes, papaya and melons. Those can be put through the juicer. The softer the texture of a fruit or vegetable, the thicker the juice produced. Apricots, peaches, pears, melons, and strawberries are soft-textured fruits, so their juice is very thick. This morning I made a juice called “Sunset Peach.” It was absolutely amazing and tasted like a creamy smoothy!

Sunset Peach

2 peaches or nectarines

1 apple

2 carrots

1 handful raspberries

Nutrients: Beta-carotene, biotin, folic acid, vitamin B3, vitamin C; calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphur.

This juice is an excellent source for energy and immunity.

September 11th: Apple seeds contain cyanide so it is important to core apples and carefully remove seeds before juicing. This morning I made a juice called “Easy Morning.” The ginger in this juice packed a nice punch!

3 carrots

1 apple

1/2 orange

1 stick celery

1/2 inch ginger root

Nutrients: Beta-carotene, folic acid, vitamin C; calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphur.

September 12th: Beet greens, parsley, spinach, and watercress yield very rich and thick juices. They are strong in flavor and taste best when combined with other fruits and vegetables. For example, green vegetable juice mixed with carrot juice produces a sweeter vegetable flavor. This morning I made a juice called “Salad Cooler” but I wasn’t a fan. I didn’t plan properly and ran out of lemons so I had to substitute an apple. I’m not very fond of tomatoes either so it wasn’t the best juice choice for my taste.

1 cucumber

3 tomatoes

1 small bunch fresh parsley

1/2 lemon

Nutrients: Beta-carotene, biotin, folic acid, vitamin B3, vitamin C; calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphur.
