Delicious & Nutritious Juicing Recipes

 Dear Leah Renee, 

I loved your post comparing the difference between juicing and blending, but would you mind including some juicing recipes too?  I am pretty good with smoothies, but I’m unsure what veggies and fruits I can juice together!  Thanks.  ~Brittany, CA

There are so many different combinations to try to detoxify, energize, and help cure what ails you!  I have listed some specific recipes, and some fruit and veggie combo’s to play around with the amounts suits you.  I have been juicing for years, and each time I still feel like it’s a new experience.  It’s fun trying a random vegetable you haven’t tried before (daikon anyone?!) to create different flavors.  Have fun with it, and enjoy the great, energized feeling that comes with juicing!

    1. Hi Laurie!
      Yes, I remember you! Love your site as well. Smoothies are just yummy 🙂 I hope you enjoy some of those recipes and find some joint relief! Supplements can be helpful too when you take them as directed by the label. I recommend 3-in-1 Joint Formula by Irwin Naturals.
