Daily Juicing - Love it!


  • ½ apple (excluding seeds) Organic
  • 1 large beet Organic
  • 1 lemon including skin Organic
  • 3 large carrots Organic
  • 1 celery stalk Organic
  • ¼ bunch of cilantro Organic
  • 2 inches ginger Organic
  • 2 radishes Organic
  • 1 inch tumeric Organic
  • 3 cups greens – kale, spinach or super greens mix Organic


  • Chop all the ingredients into small pieces less than ½ inch wide. Toss everything together as if you are preparing a salad.
  • Turn on your juicer, be sure you’ve got your fiber container and juicer pitcher in place before starting, then start to gently drop your ingredients into the juicer. I like to keep the juicer hatch closed until the juicer is full so everything mixes well, then release as needed to finish the job.
  • This makes about 20 ounces of juice, so 10 ounces each for 2 people, give or take the size of the ingredients. Most of the items we are able to procure organic at Costco which really helps with overall costs. Check out Farmers Markets and Community Agricultural Services also.
  • Now take a moment to enjoy your juice. This could be your 5-10 minutes of mindful meditation while you sip your juice. Allowing your digestive system to process the juice over a little time improves absorption since most of the fiber is removed. There is a limit of how much can be digested in a short period of time and actually absorb all the nutrient content. If you need to hit the road, take your juice in a to-go container and enjoy it as you commute. Our favorite is the Hydroflask.


Following are some key benefits and nutrition included in these ingredients. However there's much more going on with each fruit or vegetable from phytonutrients, to weight loss, to lowering blood pressure, to cancer fighting and more. And of course there is fiber in all of these, which is mostly removed with juicing, so I have omitted listing it. Each ingredient could truly be covered in it’s own article. The power of plants is incredible! Stay tuned!
