It’s one thing to be motivated to juice when you see movies like “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” but it’s another to actually juice on a regular basis. Juicing takes planning. That’s why I have become a devoted fan of Joe Cross’s website [www.rebootwithjoe.com]. It’s not only packed with great advice, it features some really good recipes too which helps me plan ahead.
So far, my favorite juice recipes are:
- Joe’s Famous Mean Green Juice
It’s made from some of my favorite vegetables including cucumber, kale and celery. I even add a carrot or two to give a bit more sweetness.
- Australia Gold
I think of this juice as a spicy lemonade. My family took this juice to a picnic concert this last weekend and everyone loved it.
- Bloody Mary
This is my wife’s favorite juice. It’s great for summer because we can pick most of the ingredients right out of our garden like: tomatoes, red bell peppers, zucchini and basil. My wife adds a couple shakes of hot sauce to spice it up.
By far my greatest discovery on the Reboot With Joe website has been his book, “101 Juice Recipes” Like most guys – at least guys I know – I need a recipe in front of me. I can’t just throw things together like my wife does and have them come out edible. I’m just not built that way. This little recipe book has 101 juice recipes broken down by color – yes, color. There are green, yellow, orange, red and purple juice recipes. He also includes a produce juicing guide that explains how to prepare different kinds of vegetables for juicing.
To summarize, my juicing tips for today are:
