The Morning Energy Vegetable Juice Recipe comes from another one of my favorite books – Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life: Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing Diets
If you haven’t picked up this book, I highly recommend it. This is a wonderful and informative book on fasting/detoxing. I subscribe to the idea that we DO need to fast occasionally to clear our body of harmful toxins and this book will show you how using fresh fruit and vegetable juice.
People who say we don’t benefit from fasting or detoxing must not be thinking clearly. Evidently they need to try it
Most of my juice recipes on this blog up until now have been fruit based. Don’t be fooled, I love my vegetable juices too. Vegetable juices are nutritionally better than fruit juices, but I like a variety.
When I started juicing I started with fruit juices because I knew I would like them. Then I moved to some juice recipes with carrots, celery, and cucumber. The Morning Energy vegetable juice is one of those. They are easy to like.
After getting used to those I started juicing what I call the “mean green juices”. Those recipes are full of vegetables like kale, spinach, dandelion greens, bok choy, romaine lettuce and broccoli. More on those in the coming weeks.
Here’s one that I think you’ll like even if you’re new to juicing.
Makes 20 ounces
- 3 to 4 carrots
- 1 cucumber peeled
- 1/2 beet with a few leaves and stems
- 1/2 lemon peeled
- 1 inch chunk of ginger root
After following the recipe I decided it had too much lemon and ginger for my taste (my lemon was pretty big), so I added the rest of the beet and 4 more carrots. I got it just right. After adding a few ice cubes I liked it even more. (Next time I’ll just use a little less lemon and ginger.) When I finished I had a rush of energy and saved some for later.
