Juicy July: Basic Green and Red Juices

Juicy July is coming to a close, but  I hope your relationship with juicing will not end with the turning of calender page.

To help keep you going, don’t forget the basics – basic green and basic red juices.

Basic Green Juice

cucumber

celery

greens (spinach, kale, etc)

apple (green preferred)

lemon (optional)

ginger (optional)

Clean produce thoroughly and juice.

Notes: There aren’t any amounts listed, because it’s really up to each individual’s taste. I typically use two cucumbers, 2 large or 4 small (heart pieces) ribs of celery, a big bunch of greens, two medium apples, and two lemons (peeled). I don’t care for ginger in juice.

Basic Red Juice

beet

apple

carrot

lemon (optional)

ginger (optional)

Wash everything well and juice. Be sure to scrub the beets well and/or peel them.

Notes: I don’t list amounts because everyone’s taste is a bit different. I typically use two beets, two apples (one apple for each beet), two large carrots, and one or two lemons (peeled). I don’t care for ginger juiced.

These are two of the juices I go to time and time again. They aren’t fancy, but they taste good, and a lot of people who eat a plant-based, whole-foods diet have these ingredients in their refrigerators anyway.

Enjoy!
