We Snack (mostly) Raw Wednesdays: Juicer!

Lately I've been enjoying JUICING (thanks Sis for the Juicer)!  A really creative and easy way to get a TON of fruits and veggies in throughout the day.  I usually juice whatever I have on hand, but here are a few my favorite "recipes."  Note: I always juice the greens first, so the more juicy fruits can help "push out" the green juice.

Garden Veggies and Sweet Greens mixed, for 2
Sweet Greens
2-4 Kale leaves, remove stem
1 Cucumber
2 whole Carrots
1 Orange

Garden Veggies
Handful of Spinach
1 Tomato
1 Carrot
1 Apple
1 Clementine
1 Lemon Wedge (for a little zing and extra cleansing)

Bright Morning
1 Apple
1 Carrot
1 Clementine
1/2 Pineapple

A Little Bite
Handful of Arugula and Spinach mix
2 Carrots
1 Clementine
Small chunk of Ginger

Here are a two more juicing recipes to try out from Sara SnowMind Refresher and Orange Tonic

When I started out I stuck to the sweeter veggies and citrus fruits to really help balance the flavor.  Go lighter on the darker and bitter greens until you've got the right amounts for your taste.  Then slowly add a little bit more each time.  Enjoy!
