About four years ago because of the recommendation of a chiropractor, we began juicing. At that time we had good friends who had completed a month-long, juice-only fast. They were our resident experts on juicing and started us on a solid recipe that we have settled into.
With our Omega juicer, we juice, and it maintains its nutritional value for 3 days. Other juicing technology allows for bigger pieces to be put through the juicer, which means less chopping, but air is introduced into the juice. That means it needs to be consumed the day it is made.
We juice and drink it fresh for 3 days. The rest we freeze at juicing time in sandwich size ziplock bags with 10 ounces of juice in each one. Sarah researched freezing the juice and discovered that while some nutrition was lost in the freezing, it wasn’t much. The tradeoff was worth it to us because freezing allows us to juice once or twice a month in big batches. (Side note: we prefer the juice chilled, and we also like to drink it with a straw!)
Here is our juice recipe:
10 lbs carrots
7 lbs apples
1/2 bunch kale
1/2 bunch celery
1 large golden beet
fingertip sized piece of ginger root
Isn’t that bowl of fruits and veggies beautiful? Do you juice? Want to share your recipes?
Trusting in Jesus,
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,
upon the earth: and it was so.”
