I have been making an effort to juice more regularly again.  The problem I ran in to was making my juices way to complicated.  I thought I need to have a specific recipe and lots of greens and herbs in order for it to be a “good” juice.  I was watching a video of my favorite raw food youtuber and Dan the Lifer regenerator was like, keep it simple and juice apples, cucumbers, and carrots.  It hit me that I often have a couple of things in my refrigerator.  So the other day I had a great juice of cucumber, carrot, ginger, and apples.  Another juice I made was apples, oranges, ginger, and carrots. 

Keep it simple and get your juice on!

So, my husband and I have been juicing a lot more lately.  I usually try to have fresh juice 3 to 5 times a week.  To that end we are always trying to do this easily and with little fuss.  Here is a quick juice recipe.  In 5 minutes this mix of celery, carrot, cucumber, apples, pears, ginger, and lemon

turned into this

The only changes I made were the addition of 2 apples and I did not use all of the ginger.  I used about a thumb size amount.  The juice was fantastic.

OBSERVATIONS:
1. I’ve not been drinking enough water.
2. I notice that breakfast is the hardest part for me in this altered eating. I’m most hungry at breakfast time and right after.
3. I need more vegan/vegetarian recipes that do not involve cheese.
4. I don’t miss meat!

Today was the first day of my and my husband’s 21-day cleanse. We are abstaining from meat, dairy, most carbs like breads, and refined sugars. I’ve also given up coffee for the next 21 days. We are loosely following a raw food type lifestyle as a way to jump start our good health. We bought a great juicer, the Breville Elite 800JEXL, and we make green juice every morning. For lunch we are doing salads and for dinner I’m planning on hot vegetarian meals.

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
