Why Start Juicing?
The quality of your life begins with the quality of the foods that sustain it. The surest path to a healthier, more energetic, and disease-free lifestyle begins with a diet rich in natural foods such as whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Especially important on this path to health are fresh fruits and vegetable juices. Fresh juices provide the proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and other food factors that are vital to your health.
There are some guidelines that you should try to follow when developing your own recipes. A general rule of thumb is to let your taste buds be your guide. They should steer you in the right direction. For example, it is often recommended that no more than one-fourth of a green juice be composed of greens like parsley, kale, lettuce, wheatgrass, or spinach. Your taste buds should tell you that too strong a green drink doesn’t taste all that good; it can be fixed by mixing in carrots, celery, cucumber, or apples.
The most important guideline is to enjoy yourself. It’s fun to experiment and find a combination that is unusually delicious.
