Yesterday, I had my mother-in-law and sister-in-law over to show them the documentary “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.” We watched it and quickly jumped up to fire up the juicer!
I received “The Big Book of Juices” by Natalie Savona as a Christmas gift. I’m super excited about it! There are over 400 juice blends in it! Some sound delicious, some sound…healthy. Ha! Every recipe has a star-rating on the page. This tells you the different health benefits you’ll get out of that particular juice blend. The recipe gets 1-5 stars in energy, detox, immunity, digestion, and skin. That’s only one of the awesome pluses this book has! The pictures are great, the glossary of ailments and ingredients are perfect for finding great recipes for what you need! I highly recommend it! My husband found it on http://www.amazon.com . Check it out! As you could guess, I’ll be getting most of my recipes from this book.
So, back to yesterday. We made 3 different juices from the book.
5 large kale leaves
This one was pretty healthy tasting. I didn’t mind it too much. It wasn’t delicious though. It received 3 energy stars, 4 detox, 5 immunity, 0 digestion, and 4 skin. Not bad overall, but not awesome!
1/2 inch ginger root
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Juice the pears and ginger root. The author recommends putting the blend in a jar with the cinnamon and shaking to mix well. This one was DELICIOUS! Very creamy, not too spicy. I’m not a huge ginger fan but this was superb! 4 energy stars, 1 detox, 3 immunity, 3 digestion, and 1 skin. There are some that have more stars overall, but for taste, this is great! Everyone loved it!
1 sweet potato
I thought this one was great as well! The pear tart probably had a better taste, but this one was off the charts in nutrition! Totally worth it! 5 energy, 3 detox, 5 immunity, 5 digestion, 4 skin. HOW ‘BOUT THEM APPLES?…err, pineapples!
