Day 1 Juicing recipes

As promised, even though a day late, here are the recipes I used for the first day.  I’m going to have a separate post after this one for my Day 2 entry & recipes as well.  Hm I might as well make them into 2 separate categories so they can be archived better (one for Entries and one for Juicing Recipes….yeah I think that would be a better idea) for your/my use. 🙂

Also the two books I used for references (recipes and planning) are “The Juice Diet” by Christine Bailey (ISBN: 978-1-84483-964-3) which has recipes AND large colored photos, and “Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Health Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicingby Cherie Calbom, M.S. and Maureen Keane, M.S., C.N. (ISBN: 978-0-89529-512-5).

I began Day 1 for breakfast/mid-morning with “Cherie’s Cleansing Cocktail“:

– 1/4 in. ginger root
– 1 beet
– 1/2 apple, seeded
– 4 carrots, greens removed

Juice together and serve. (Note: seeds in the apple and carrot greens are toxic so they are often removed prior to consumption.)

For my mom I made her a “Green Machine [Cleanse]“:

– 9oz pineapple juice
– 4 broccoli florets
– 2 celery stalks
– 1 tsp green superfood powder (I subbed with 2 kale leaves).

Juice and serve with ice.

I then juiced some beet juice (I read it helps with liver health/detox) to share between us.  It sure stained our teeth purple/red for a little though…BLOOD!! Just kidding 🙂  We drank and took a swig of beet juice to swallow down our milk thistle capsule.

For lunch I had the “Garden Salad Special“:

– 3 broccoli florets
– 1 garlic clove
– 4-5 carrots, greens removed  OR 2 tomatoes
– 2 stalks celery
– 1/2 green pepper

Juice in order, and serve.

I think that was by far the worst one I’ve ever tried…was like drinking a garlicky version of marinara sauce, but really watery.

For happy hour, I made the “Waldorf Salad“:

– 1 green apple, seeded
– 1 stalk celery

Juice and enjoy (especially relish in the moment after that last one drink I had haha).

For dinner I called it the Veggie Tonic Cleanser…at the time I didn’t remember the name but it’s really “Potassium Broth“. …yeah.

– handful parsley
– handful spinach
– 4-5 carrots, greens removed
– 2 stalks celery
(I added 1 pear for sweetness & 1/4 in. ginger for spice)

Obviously juice and serve.


About foodieh3aven

Hello world. Let me first introduce myself to you. I’m currently 26 and pursuing a degree in Administration of Justice with an emphasis in Investigations. I have always been a fan and contributor to the food world as far as I could remember, whether or not it was through my eyes of watching my mom or other adults cook, eating at restaurants, or even at my own experimentation with food. I have been coined, through friends, as the Dessert chef. Why, you may ask? My friend Diana, aka: Di, and I like LOVE food and making food. She does mostly the appetizers and food-food, while I cater more to the desserts. However, we aren’t just stuck in our own arenas but dive into each other’s as well. Both of us experiment based on tastes, flavors, smells, and common knowledge of food to make oh, so yummy food. This will be my blog about my adventures, pictures included, through food. I will also delve into details on recipes as well for all of the other foodies in the world who would like to make them as well. Until my next post, happy eatings everyone!
