Recipes for Juicer
Some of the recipes we talk about here have been around for a while. But believe me, they do not get old. We also have added some of our own, in addition to some given to us by close friends and colleagues.
It is our intent to give you as much motivation as possible so you can follow your fitness weight loss program with enthusiasm and perseverance.
Below you will find a list of fruits and vegetables to make it easier when you go to the supermarket or health food store. If you can afford to buy organic fruits and vegetables, that is wonderful and optimum. But if you cannot, then please don’t worry about it.
When juicing, most of the pesticide toxins found in non-organic produce are discarded in the pulp. But the most beautiful part is that the antioxidants and phytochemicals contained in the juice itself will help your body get rid of these toxins. Awesome! Don’t you think?
Remember: Wash the fruits and vegetables thoroughly ALWAYS!
Juice Preparation Pointers
We all live very busy lives. So if you need to prepare two days’ worth of these recipes for juicer, then it is important to take precautions so the juice does not oxidize and spoil. This is very very important. If you are going to take the time to go to the supermarket and invest in these fruits and vegetables, then we want to make sure you maximize each and every one of them.
We learned this the hard way, and it is very disconcerting to see beautiful fruits and vegetables go to waste. To prevent this, you must put the juice in glass container with an air tight lid. Then, our recommendation is that you wrap the jar with a paper bag or aluminum foil to reduce the amount of light the juice receives, as this too can spoil it prematurely.
It is best that, prior to consumption, you take it out of the refrigerator and drink it as close as possible to room temperature. It does not have to be warm, but room temperature is good for better digestion and absorption of the nutrients.
Herbs & Prunes
If you want to prepare shakes or smoothies with the recipes for juicer described below, you can do so with a blender; but in this case all fruits and vegetables must be peeled.
Again, you can add protein powder to make the juice thicker and tastier, but it is best to keep this to a minimum – especially if you are fasting for weight loss. One ingredient that helps immensely to quicken the intestinal cleansing process is a supplement called Herbs & Prunes.
We highly highly recommend it. You will have massive bowel movements that will help to cleanse your colon and maximize your body detox efforts. For lots of articles on body cleansing and detoxification, go to our Detox Cleansing Video Portal.
Of course, please consult your doctor before juicing fruits and vegetables. You can go to the

pages for more information on fasting health benefits and potential risks.
Almost all vegetables can be used in recipes for juicer: Tomatoes, garlic, sweet potatoes, peppers, artichoke, kale, cabbage, onions, bell peppers, pumpkin, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, carrots, beets, celery, cucumbers, squash and spinach.
The following vegetables blend well with one another and can be freely mixed for your recipes for juicer. Your choice of: carrots, parsnips, cabbage, beets, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, burdock root and cauliflower.
Spinach and beets should be used in small quantities because they have a very strong and potentially unpleasant taste. When you use these in particular, you can mix them with carrots, celery and/or apples for a milder taste. But strong taste should be no reason to shun these wonderful vegetables. It is ok for some of the recipes for juicer to be less than delicious.
We are fasting for weight loss and improved health and vitality. A little sour taste here and there is no big deal considering the huge benefits juice fasting provides. Leafy vegetables: you can use all variety of lettuces in addition to parsley, watercress, cilantrillo, kale and collards.
You can add a handful of wheat grass to your recipes for juicer. Wheat grass is very strong in taste but it full of fasting health benefits. It can be used in powder, juice or tablet form. Wheat grass is one of the most alkaline green leafy vegetables, and it is part of the cereal grass family which barley, oat and rye.
It neutralizes acid production, in turn reducing food cravings and expediting detoxification. Wheat grass contains large amounts of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is very similar to hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. But there still have not been that many clinical studies related to wheat grass.
So be wary of any exaggerated claims by some wheat grass diet programs. It offers great benefit, but it is NOT a miracle cure. You will need resolve, perseverance and focus to attain your fasting for weight loss goals. That’s what this website is all about.
Here are some additional ingredients many people use to prepare their recipes for juicer. These are supplementary and should not become the basis of the juice, nor should be used in large quantities.
1-Seeds: Grounded sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, flax, nuts and
2-One tbs. of brewers yeast
3-Protein Powders, (occasional) My favorite is whey and rice, but you can use your favorite including soya, spirulina
4- Plain low fat yogurt
6-Vanilla (with fruit juice)
7-Olive oil (with vegetable juice)
8-Hot chili sauce (with vegetable juice)
9-Roots (ginger, burdock, galanga) They are extremely pungent, so use a very small piece for each juice if you need it.
