I’m not sure if you have ever tried juicing but in our family when cold and flu season start we bring out the juicer and we hit the store for fresh fruit and veggies. We have tried several different juices “Different fruit and veggies in our juice” but our favorite seems to always be Carrots, Celery and Apples and sometime a hint of pear.
Needless to say I’m the first to get the cold in our family this cold season…. Bummer I know, Right? Well This mama needs to keep up her energy and needs to get over this cold very soon and fast. Plus I can’t have anyone else catch a cold either.
Well This is what I’m doing to overcome this dreadful cold….. Lots of Vitamin C “I love Emergenc and Airborne”. Plus some Zinc Lozenges and I also Juice 2 to 3 times a day.
To make your own juice it is really important to have a juicer. We use a Jack LaLanne express. Now I will be honest over time it doesn’t work as well as it did in the beginning. We really want a vitamix. They are bit more spendy but I feel that it will be worth it in the end.
Once we have our juicer put together we gather our fruit and veggies that we plan on using.
We cut everything up a bit. It just fits in the juicer easier.
Then in the fruit and veggies they go and out comes the juice. 🙂
Once it has all been juiced I place in cups and in the mouths it goes. Yes my kiddos LOVE juiced carrots, celery and apples.
And Juice just wouldn’t be the same without those mustaches!
This batch made about 3 1/2 cups of raw juice…. No sugars added, no preservatives added and non of the other junk that you find in juice bought in a store. Raw Juice is SO MUCH better for you!
Here is an idea of the nutrients that are packed in this awesome drink
This was one of the best websites I could find for this recipe for nutrients.
Do you juice? If so what are your favorites recipes and why do you do it?
