I did a 20 day juice fast before starting SparkPeople. I have a e-book saved on my computer of over 101 recipes I can e-mail to you if you care to share your e-mail. I found the hardest thing was to get my veggies in there. It is so easy to juice some apples and oranges and call it a day but here are a couple veggie-full recipes I came up with through trial and error.....
Here is a website that has a list of nutritional information for raw juices www.myfitnesspal.com/nutrition-facts-calor
I have been just tracking a little less than the whole fruit. The whole concept of tracking is to get an idea and to promote a healthy lifestyle, not to keep scientific measurements. And for the sake of tracking I am going to start doing the smoothie thing a little more than juicing, this way I am not loosing out on all of the fiber and good stuff too.
As far as juicing goes, I found that I can get any leafy green and mix it with pineapple and it will taste awesome...due to the acid in pineapple though you have to drink right away or it will start to break the greens down and either taste nasty or make you sick. I add carrots and spinach to everything when I can. They are actually pretty sweet, they are so good for my skin and have out-witted every acne and pore refining prescription and face wash I have owned since I was 12. I have also replaced my coffee with any sort or combo of apple juices. I feel 5 times more energized for 2 times longer than drinking coffee.
I like this recipe for a late dinner. While most juices get me zippin' Lettuce has a chemical similar to opium that sets your body and mind at ease......
2 - Roamaine Lettuce Hearts
1 knob of ginger
a handful of green or red grapes
2 skinned cucumbers
1 bunch of green grapes (also good as a smoothie if you freeze the grapes)
2 handfuls of spinach
2 Large Oranges
2 Clementines or Tangerines
1/2 a head of Fennel (stems, leaves and all)
1/2 peeled lemon
1 knob of ginger
1 head of fennel (again everything!)
1-2 large carrots
This one is my favorite beet recipe to give my friends. I love beets but they are not popular. Mix with some pineapple and boom, you have some serious vitamins and a powerful detox!
1 large red beet
There are plenty more where that came from if you need any! If you have any cool ones too, I would love to try them!!!!
