I’ve been talking about getting a good juicer for years. Now that things are settling down a bit for me I can focus on my health and nutrition a little more and part of that process is juicing. I’ve talked with a handful of friends and family about their experiences and none of them had anything but good to say about juicing. They feel better, have more energy and, in some cases, have lost weight.
Over last few years I’ve transitioned to a more whole food, plant-based diet. I still eat meat occasionally, but that is happening less and less. These days, I have a hard time eating meat from big-box grocery stores. Luckily, we have several very nice farmer’s markets and local growers and ranchers who provide quality food here in Phoenix. This makes it much easier to have a well stocked kitchen with fresh food while supporting local growers. We have almost completely pulled away from processed foods and I feel so much better about the food I put in my body.
I know there is a strong community of juicers out there who all have their favorite recipes and are always experimenting and developing new ones. Hopefully, I will be able to share some of my favorites as I get more experience with my juicer. I am very excited about finding recipes to use the pulp as well as the juice so less get’s tossed out. Any of the pulp ends up in compost for the garden, so I’m not too worried about the scraps.
Anyway, I wanted to post about this because I’d like to hear about some of your favorite recipes! If you’ve got a favorite juice recipe (or other recipe using the juicer) please share it with me below, I’d love to try it!
