Our Four Favorite Raw Fruit Juice RecipesDocument Transcript
Our Four Favorite Raw Fruit Juice RecipesMy feeling about juicing is that you should have as many colors of the rainbow represented in yourjuice. It makes for a more balanced body, raises your vibration and also helps all your chakras spinclockwise (meaning that they are healthy.) With that said, here are our favorite five-star juicecombinations so far.Note: The volumes make about 4 cups of raw juice. You then divide that into two quart Mason jarsand add 2 cups of ice cubes to each jar. Dump the whole mixture into your blender and buzz it onHigh to make 4 cups of diluted juice. This makes enough juice for 2 people for the morning juicing.Ginger is great for increasing circulation and it gives your juices a "zip."Juice #1: Cantaloupe juice with a ½ cup splash of Knudsons Lemon-Ginger-Echinacea juice (wewere trying to use up what was in the fridge one day about 10 days into our juice fast.) One whole 8-10 inch cantaloupe makes about 4 cups of juice.Juice #2: Apple (4 cups), Pineapple (1/2), Mango (1), Plum (2), Banana (2)Juice #3: Peach (2), Plum (3), Ginger (2 inch chunk), Pineapple (1/2), Kiwi (1), Orange (2)Juice #4:Apple (3), Peach (1), Banana (2), Blueberries (1 cup), Mango (1), Plum (2) and Lemon (1)The fruit juices are definitely more enjoyable than the vegetable juices. We really tried a variety offruits and vegetables during our 40-day juice fast.General Juicing Rules:Drink freshly prepared juice and do not store the juice for over 24 hours. If you cant drink itimmediately, put it into a glass jar (filled to the top) and put a lid on it to prevent oxidation. Juicerapidly loses therapeutic and nutritional value during storage.Raw fruits and vegetables are not always compatible when eaten together. Apples are theexception. You can also mix pears with Jicama.Melons should be juiced by themselves. Making the entire meal melon is an option.Avoid using pre-bottled or sweetened juices (like we did in the first recipe.) All the live enzymesare inactivated when they are pasteurized.Minimize acid juices. Juices dont stimulate acids to be released from the stomach, but orange andtomato juice are high in acids and you may want to mix these juices with other less acidic ones.About cucumbers. Ive read that cucumbers may not be good to mix with other vegetables as theyare in the melon family, but it seems to work fine for us. We do limit cucumber to less than 25% of thetotal volume however.Dont add more than 25% green juice to your vegetable juices (unless you have a barf buckethandy! Woof.)Juicing Greens--you might want to do this in between harder vegetables, the juice sludges at thebottom and doesnt pour out easily if you juice them first. For example, I juice a couple of carrots, thena bunch of parsley, then cram a couple more carrots in after the parsley to get the juicer movingagain.Dilute all fruit juice with water (one part juice to 2-4 parts water) and drink throughout the day.
Weve found that 2 cups fruit juice blended with ½ tray of ice cubes comes up to 4 cups--the perfectdilution and its frothy cold.Vegetable juices need not be diluted.What to Juice:During the fast, select juicing materials and teas specific to your health conditions. Most of the peopleI see in my practice do well on the Eat Right for Your Type diet (www.dadamo.com). Because of this,I recommend juicing those fruits on the Highly Beneficial and Neutral Foods Lists. Our fast wasextensive, but you dont need to fast that long. A 3-day juice fast will give you lots of benefits andmake your body healthier and more alkaline which is what you really need to stay healthy.See our Juice Fast Blog to read about that experience at:http://www.nAturalhealthtechniques.com/CoachingCorner/juice_fast_blog.htmLemon Juice Diet
