Here is a muscle-blasting, power-pushing juice recipe for joggers. Juice fasters often experience periods of phenomenal strength and endurance. Clean blood, clean muscles, and enzyme-rich, nutrient-packed, fuel make for intense aerobic activity. Water fasting usually requires rest, but not so with juice fasting. Look out! You can clean your house, run and lift weights with the best of them. Many elderly fasters such as Ehret and Bragg performed extraordinary feats of endurance while fasting. Try this juice out on a five-mile jog. Add a little crushed ice and let your taste buds sing. Sip slowly.
3 pink grapefruit
1 sweet potato
A delicious alcohol free party pleaser that will blow both socks off. Ask the host if you can take your juicer to the party. Enjoy an enzyme high without a nasty hangover. It may be more expensive than beer, but who wants to drink yeast excrement (alcohol) anyway? Cut loose with the joy of the Spirit. And when all those social drinkers are drinking to numb the conscious, yours will be free and clear. And when the fun becomes foolish, you can drive safely home to rest with a timely excuse—I jog at 6 o'clock in the morning.
A Taste of Heaven
1 sweet potato
thin slice of Spanish onion
pinch dulse powder
He renews our youth—to run and not grow weary. The Lord renews our strength so that we will mount up on wings like eagles.
It’s time to let go and let God. To trust, and have hope. He is with you and will never forsake you. And joy shall flow from your heart, like a child.
Athlete’s Super Fuel
1 can frozen pineapple concentrate (I used quarter fresh pineapple)
So you're just entered the iron man contest. No more couch baby-sitting for you. Heading for the threshold of endurance. Developing a discipline like iron that will keep you running with power toward that finish line. Fixed and resolute, yet flexible and gentle. Driven and focused, yet child-like and joyful. Strong, yet dependent on God. Ready those muscles for training. Stir the soul. Be ready for action like a soldier awaits a command.
3 hard pears
1 sweet potato
A delightful surprise to both men and women is the increased vitality of their sexua| organs. Juice fasting cleanses all the organs and when bathed in healing nutritious juices, those organs become ready and vigorous for the function they were intended. God made sex to be enjoyed, giving fulfillment to the sacred bond of marriage. Marriage it is a holy act and pleasing to God. Juice fasting can bring back the long forgotten sparks. After an exciting night one woman responded to her 65-year-old husband “Honey you should fast more often!” When a husband and wife filled with God's love, passionately display selfless affection, there is great contentment.
Citrus juice made from a hand citrus juicer and a centrifugal force juice extractor can be quite different. The electric juice extractor produces a thick frothy juice, which is more tart. The quality and the nutritional value of the two are similar so it is only a matter of preference.
This is an awesome waker-upper and is healthier than coffee. It may take a little more time to make, but you will gain time because of the sharp mind that you will have in whatever you do.
The Hyper House Cleaner
1 slice Spanish onion
slice of ginger
So you're ready to clean house. To scale the Mount Everest of dust and garbage. To enter the black hole of the basement. To chop a jungle trail through the kid's bedroom. To reach into crevices too horrid to imagine. Yes, you need juice. Not just plain juice, but hyper-housecleaner juice. More powerful than a janitor in a drum. More thorough than Mr. Clean. Able to leap kid's toy's in a single bound. Polish up those cleaning utensils and get ready for an aerobic house-cleaning workout.
1 sweet potato
This juice is like music to your cells. Let this amazing juice parade down to belly to the applause of 9000 taste buds.
If a juice can make us feel this good, what will the glory of entering heaven be like. All of heaven rising to its feet as you enter, tired, worn, and weary yet filled with joy. The finish line. The reward and all of heaven stands to their feet. They are chanting something softly growing louder to a cheer. It is your name. You may even get a standing ovation.
1 slice Spanish onion
2 sweet potato
2 Tbs. cider vinegar
So you've made the decision to run the race of heaven. To give it your all. To live without needs or wants. To be a servant. To deny self. To live in the spirit of peace, kindness, hope and joy. To war against spiritual realms, praying always. To stilling the storms of the soul through trusting in God. To be willing to suffer. Then, here is the juice for you. Make it in the morning just before a brisk walk of discipline. Make it a walk of war against doubt, fear, worry, lazy thinking, role-playing and frustration. As you walk, adjust the face of your soul so that it shines with peace, love and joy. And do it with all your power and might.
1 sweet potato
thin slice of Spanish onion
1 garlic clove
1/2 can of frozen apple concentrate
Crush ice or blend with water till slush. Add juice and get ready to chill out. Cool down those forces of frustration. Be at peace in the storm. This drink is made to refresh your cells like the Spirit is made to refresh your soul. Sit back and consider your blessings. Look at what is with in. You are kind, loving, encouraging, full of hope and at peace. A sign that God is at work within.
The Pain Remover
3 hard pears
Bruises, aches and sprains can be irritated by a toxic bloodstream and a high-protein diet. But a low-protein, natural diet, lessens irritation and reduces inflammation. Not only does this juice taste delightful, it assists in the healing process. Adam and Eve never woke up stiff with arthritis. Perfect food sustaining perfect bodies. It is our heritage to be healthy and pain free.
The Brain Stimulator
1 hard pears
Scientists have determined that we use only 10 percent of the brain. Living on coffee and donuts reduces that percentage to 2 percent. Here is a juice to stimulate all of that unused percentage back into activity. For this juice to be effective, you need a five-day juice fast to clear the coffee, donut and junk food residues out of the bloodstream. Once clear, this wide-spectrum, nutrient-rich juice will stir the brain into super-activity. Better memory, sharper thinking and good study techniques are the tools for great marks. No more morning brain fog. Now you can leap out of bed to study while brushing your teeth and preparing for the day.
Super Duper Spicy Tomato
3 ripe tomatoes
1/2 green or red pepper
1 celery stock
1 Tbs. Good Tasting Yeast
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 Tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
3 drops Louisiana Hot Sauce (optional for the real man)
Do you enjoy bungi jumping? How about sky diving? If you have an adventurous personality, then this is the perfect juice for you. When you are fasting, drinking this juice may make you feel like you have just eaten a large pizza. If you are on a cleansing fast, eliminate the good tasting yeast.
1 fennel bulb
1/2 beet with greens
If you enjoy the taste of licorice, you will love fennel. This unusual vegetable looks like fat celery with feathers. Fennel helps your eyes to increase in sensitivity, overcoming night blindness. Some have found fennel juice good for relieving migraine headaches.
Garlic Breath Delight
1 clove of garlic
sprig of parsley
This bacteria buster means business. Garlic reduces blood pressure, helps with the problem of blood clotting, lowering the LDL which increases bad cholesterol. Garlic boosts the immune system and encourages the recovery of heart attack victims. Garlic contains allicin which inhibits bacterial growth and fungus, helping with yeast over-growths, and useful in treating candida. Garlic increases the flow of digestive enzymes and encourages detoxification through the skin. The addition of parsley helps in combating the unpleasant odor of garlic. This juice is worth losing a few friends over.
The Cancer Killer
1 celery stick
Rudolf Breuss's, anticancer mixture has helped thousands of suffering people. This juice blend, during fasting, exerts a death blow on cancer. This was attested by over 24,000 patients who wrote him describing relief from their diseases. His patients were given small amounts of this juice over 42 days. A tea composed of nettle, St. John's wart, marigold, artemisi and monarda was also given. By "starving out" the cancer, Rudolf Breuss reported a 96% success rate for the thousands of patients he treated over 30 years of practice. (Rudolf Breuss died in 1989 at 93 years of age.)
Its composition is: 55% beet root, 20% celery root, 20% carrot, 3% potato, 2% radish.
Apple-berry Better Bladder
1 1/4 cups of cranberries
Cranberry juice is a powerful healing tonic, filled with quinine which changes to hippuric acid in the liver. Hippuric acid is able to assist in the removal of purines, uric acid, urea and toxic build-up in the prostate gland, testicles, kidneys and bladder. An excellent preventative juice for North American men who are battling the increased risk of prostate cancer. It is a wonderful defense against yeast infections for women. Cut apples into wedges, seeds and all.
The Niagara Falls Cleanser
1 wedge watermelon with rind
1/2 lb. red grapes
(I've added a handful of pitted Bing Cherries, fantastic!)
Watermelon rind has chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion. Ninety-five percent of the nutritional content in watermelon is in the rind. The seeds may be a little noisy but are harmless to the juicer.
You may be curious about the name. When you put a sloppy wet piece of watermelon in the juicer it comes out like Niagara Falls. Because watermelon is a great diuretic, your kidneys and bladder will experience a honeymoon of youthful health.
If you are short on money, watermelon juice is the ticket. You can add just about anything to watermelon juice, so again, we encourage you to have some fun.
5 ice cubes
2 Tbs. of Sucanat
dash of cinnamon
Juice the cantaloupe and blend with Sucanat, cinnamon and ice cubes.
This juice recipe has become our favorite drink. Stunningly refreshing and full of flavor. Has more than 15,000 I.U. of vitamin A and over three times the vitamin C content of an apple. It also contains myoinositol, a lipid which helps with anxiety, insomnia and in battling hardening of the arteries. It also contains the greatest amount of digestive enzymes. Melons are recommended by the American Cancer Society as powerful agents in the fight against intestinal and skin cancer. Cantaloupe contains approximately 100 calories, yet it is dense in nutrients. This makes melon a perfect food for healing and weight loss. Delicious, filling and low in calories.
1 Fennel bulb
1 Red Pepper
4 Medium carrots
Fennel is a vegetable that has two distinct areas that can be juiced. For this recipe we are using the bulb section at the base of the plant although if you wish you juice the 'branching' section that is more often associated with garnishing food.
The fennel juice in this recipe gives a unique and distinct natural aniseed / licorice flavour to the drink that is slightly sweet. This makes fennel a great choice for adding a bit of variation into the flavours of your normal 'staple' juices.
The juice from the bell pepper, carrots and apple contain an abundance of vitamins (particularly A and C), enzymes and natural sugars. Fennel juice helps to detoxify the liver and is a diuretic and is also sometimes used to relieve trapped wind and aid digestion. When combined with the nutritional properties contained in the other juices in this juicing recipe we have a robust, all round detoxing, immune boosting, energy giving drink.
Wash and scrub the fennel bulb and cut off and discard the root end (as you would with an onion). Cut the bulb into quarters. Prepare the other ingredients - remove the core and seeds from the pepper, peel or wash and scrub the carrots. Wash and scrub the apples.
Scrubbing the ingredients can remove more pesticides / herbicides that may be present on the surface of the produce. Of course if you are using organic produce or have grown your own you need not worry about this.
Feed all ingredients through the juicer and pour into chilled glasses. Drink immediately.
March to the Beet
Serving: 1 Medium glass
1 medium Beetroot
1 handful Basil leaves
1/2 a red Bell pepper
This is a great vitality juice. Top and tail the beetroot and then scrub the beetroot if organic / home grown, otherwise peel the beetroot and cut into pieces small enough to fit in your juicer. Wash the pears, peel the lime and wash and deseed the pepper.
Fold the Basil leaves up tightly and feed them into the juicer between pieces of Beetroot. Juice all the other ingredients, stir and drink immediately.
What a taste this juicer recipe has! Beetroot juice is very rich and this recipe addresses that fact with the Lime juice which helps to cut through the richness. The Basil complements the Beetroot very well.
Beetroot is an excellent source of iron and also contains the caretonoid Betaine. Betaine has numerous benefits including antioxidant properties and helps with red blood cell production and lymph activity. Red Peppers also contain an abundance of anti-oxidants so this juicer recipe has cancer preventative properties.
Pear are a good source of soluble fibre and will help 'sweep out' the intestines.
Serving: About 6 ounces
1/2 Medium fresh beetroot
2 small carrots
2 sticks celery
This juicer recipe was contributed by Penny - a Happy Juicer reader who has used this recipe to successfully treat her Lymphoedema. Lymph is a clear fluid found in the tissues that normally flows back into the blood circulation system through the lymphatic system. Lymph nodes help to filter and remove waste matter and bacteria from our tissues and so contribute to the successful functioning of the immune system.
Lympoedema is a condition caused by the damage or incorrect functioning of the vessels in the lymphatic system and results in blockages and fluid build up in the affected tissues. This can result in swelling of the affected tissues (oedema means swelling).
Penny could not walk due to one of her feet being distorted by the amount of fluid build up in her foot and leg. Since researching the nutritional properties of fruits and vegetables and juicing, and then devising this juice recipe that she drinks every day Penny is now able to wear shoes and walk again. Many thanks to Penny for sharing her recipe with us.
Penny stresses the importance of using raw fresh beetroot as the pickled or cooked forms does not have the same healing affect.
Bilt for Taste
Serving: Serves 2 large glasses
2 small apples
This juicer recipe mimics a famous soft drink with a completely tropical taste (but leaves out the vast amount of added sugar and additives). Pineapple and grapefruit really do make a most excellent combination that gets both your sweet and sour taste buds working overtime. This juice is ideal if you think your system will need a vitamin C boost as both Pineapple and Grapefruit are great sources of this antioxidant that is so effective at strengthening your immune system.
Look for heavy pineapples as this indicates a high water (and therefore juice) content. The pineapple should yield slightly when squeezed. To prepare the pineapple firstly remove the top and base of the pineapple, this will give you a study flat base to sit the pineapple on your chopping board so that you can then remove the pineapple skin by slicing down the side of the pineapple. The more slices you make when removing the skin should mean the less you pineapple flesh you waste as you will cut off less 'corners'.
Peel the grapefruits (leaving some of the pith on as this contains bioflavonoid that help your body to absorb the vitamin C. Cut the pineapple, grapefruit and apple into pieces that will fit comfortably down your juicers feeding chute.
Serve with ice.
Land of Green Ginger
Serving: About a pint
2 Sticks of Celery
1 small to medium clove of Garlic
1 inch section of Root Ginger
This juicer recipe is one of the simplest and quickest to make. Simply wash the cucumber and celery and cut the cucumber into pieces that will fit into your juicers feeding chamber. Peel the Garlic and Remove the skin from the root ginger. Feed the Ginger and garlic through the juicer in between pieces of celery. Garlic is a natural antibiotic, strengthens the immune system and can be used to help reduce blood pressure. Cucumber is known to be good for the skin, hair and nails. Celery also contains high levels of potassium which contributes to healthy skin. The high water content of this juice driink also makes it a great way to hydrate your body and keep your skin healthy.
Serving: 3 medium glasses
2 tablespoons runny honey
1 thumb sized piece of root ginger
1/2 pint filtered / distilled water (or 2 apples)
The inspiration for this juice recipe came from a Brazilian restaurant and it sure hits the spot and allows for a little experimentation on your part. Remove the pineapple skin (if organic you can leave a little on). Peel the ginger and then juice it along with most of the pineapple and the lemon. Mix in the honey, do not use set honey, as it will not mix into the drink properly. If you have a blender you can blend the remainder of the pineapple and mix it in with the juice, otherwise just juice the rest of the pineapple. Add the chilled water and mix to form a delicious long drink. If you want to increase the nutrient count you can juice two good-sized apples instead of adding the water although this slightly dilutes the Latin flavours.
Don’t be scared to experiment with different proportions of blended and juiced pineapple.
Pump it Up
Serving: Makes 2 medium glasses.
24 oz Pumpkin (deseeded and skinned)
1 inch Root Ginger
Pumpkin's aren't just for Halloween and pumpkin pie! There is a wealth of health benefits that we can acquire from a pumpkin which we should seek to utilize whilst the vegetable is in season. Using seasonal fruit and vegetables in our juice recipes can help us obtain a more widespread balance of nutrients. Pumpkin contains vitamins A and C which help to boost the immune system.
Some people liken pumpkin juice to a 'watered down' carrot juice. It is slightly thinner and also more delicate in flavour than carrot juice. For this reason we have used the pumpkin as a base in this recipe and then given the taste a lift and slight kick with the addition of orange and ginger.
Remove sections of pumpkin and scrape off any seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a well known health food. Remove the pumpkins skin and then feed your pumpkin flesh through the juicer. Remove the orange skins and peel the ginger skin off. Juice the ginger followed by the oranges.
The Green Goblin
Serving: 1 green cocktail
1 shot wheatgrass
2 sticks celery
Handful of parsley
This wheatgrass recipe is a quick and easy way to get a whole lot of goodness into your system. Because home grown wheatgrass juice may have a very sweet taste some people can find it a bit sickly. This recipe addresses the intense sweetness by using celery which has enough sodium in to give a more savoury feel. The parsely also helps blend the taste into something that is a lot less 'wheatgrass' dominated. The benefits of wheatgrass are many as it contains all the vitamins except vitamin D, enzymes, minerals, protein and high levels of Chlorophyll which is anti-bacterial and helps to build the blood as it is very similar in structure to Haemoglobin, the molecule that helps the blood to carry oxygen.
Drink immediately after juicing on an empty stomach.
Peter Piper's Pepper Punch
Serving: 2 medium glasses
2 Yellow peppers
This juice recipe is great for boosting your immune system as it contains high levels of vitamin C. Bell Peppers are great sources of vitamin C and red and yellow peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as green peppers.
Some can find the flavour of green peppers a little bitter for their tastes when used in juicer recipes, the yellow peppers in this recipe are sweeter and melt into the other fruit flavours to give a subtle but definite taste.
Thoroughly wash and deseed the peppers and peel the oranges and grapefruit. Leave the pith on the citrus fruit as it contains Bioflavinoids which help the body absorb the vitamin C.
