Spinach Carrot Apple Juice | Simple Recipes

As I’m writing this, I’m headed to the kitchen to make this recipe, spinach carrot apple juice. Spinach is becoming my favorite green vegetable. Great to juice and great to eat in salads or cooked.

I have some spinach leftover that I’m afraid is going to go bad, some carrots that are in the same condition and a big red delicious apple. So I’m juicing what’s available and later today I’m going shopping for some more fresh produce.

Spinach is a pretty good source of vitamin C and in a study I read about, spinach showed evidence of significant protection against the occurrence of aggressive prostate cancer. Good stuff, eh?

spinach carrot apple juiceCarrots have some good benefits too. Carrots are good for your vision and skin. Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A. More good stuff for the body!

As far as apples go, did you ever hear the old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”? Apples are one of my favorite fruits and go well into just about any juicing recipe to add a little sweetness.

This is off the topic of juicing a little. Have you ever tried stewed apples? Occasionally I have a stewed apple in the morning, because in studying Ayurvedic medicine a while back I learned stewed apples stimulate regular bowel movements. There are other benefits too. What a way to start the day! Believe me stewed apples really work. Try it three days in a row and see how you like it.  Here’s a link to a simple recipe and directions.

Kale, Peach and Apple Juice | Simple Recipes

I had some extra kale, peach and apple in my fridge, so I made this beautiful emerald juice. I love how kale looks when juiced. So beautiful! Don’t you agree?

Kale, Peach and Apple JuiceIf you’re like me then sometimes you have fruit and vegetables that need to be used up before they go bad.

Sometimes I buy too much at the grocery store right before I’m leaving town for a few days. I don’t know why I do that, but it happens. Then I think all of that stuff I just bought is going to get old. So what do you do with it? I juice it.

I don’t like letting things go to waste, especially good fruit and vegetables. These can be juiced and frozen if necessary. I’ve frozen juice in mason jars before and when thawed they are still very good. But remember, it’s always best to consume your fresh juice right away. Most people say within 20 minutes of juicing it.

Here’s a simple recipe I made with some kale, peach and apple. It’s delicious and so healthy. Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around.

Here are just some of kale’s amazing benefits: High in calcium, high in vitamin C, high in vitamin K, high in vitamin A, has a good amount of Iron, anti cancer properties, helps to lower cholesterol levels, has an overall alkalizing effect on the body, great for detoxifying our bodies, high in chlorophyll and contains blood purifying properties.

Eating a diet high in Vitamin K can help protect against various cancers. It is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions including normal bone health and blood clotting. Also increased levels of vitamin K can help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. – mindbodygreen.com

Would you want to let that kale go to waste? Heck NO!

Sweet Pear Sensation | Pear, Apple, Celery, Lemon and Ginger Juice

Wow! Here’s  a great recipe for you. The Sweet Pear Sensation  comes from The Healthy Juicer’s Bible written by Farnoosh Brock.

I love pear in my juices and this one incorporates pear nicely with apple, lemon, celery and ginger. There’s just a hint of celery flavor and ginger in this one. I use very small amounts of ginger in my recipes because I think the Omega J8004 really squeezes out the ginger remarkably well. Too much ginger can ruin a juice for me.

I hope you enjoy this very delightful juice. Try some sparkling water with this, you might be surprised.

Sweet Pear SensationSweet Pear Sensation

Makes 20 ounces

  • 2 small pears, any kind
  • 1 medium sweet apple ( I used Red Delicious)
  • 2-4 celery stalks ( I used 3)
  • 1/2 lemon ( I peel mine)
  • A small chunk of ginger

 

Update: The Health Benefits of Pears

  1. Blood pressure: Pears have anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogen glutathione which help prevent high blood pressure and stroke.
  2. Cancer prevention: The high vitamin C and copper content act as good anti-oxidants that protect cells from damages by free radicals.
  3. Cholesterol: The high content of pectin in pears make it very useful in helping to lower cholesterol levels.
    Colon health: When not juicing, eat the pear whole for its precious fiber that are highly beneficial for your colon health.
  4. Constipation: The pectin in pears is diuretic and have a mild laxative effect. Drinking pear juice regularly helps regulate bowel movements.
  5. Energy: You can get quick and natural source of energy from pear juice, due largely to its high amounts of fructose and glucose.
  6. Fever: The cooling effect in pear is excellent in relieving fever. Best way to bring a fever down quickly is by drinking a big glass of pear juice.
