Juice Recipes

These are some of my favorite juice recipes I’ve collected over the last year or so.  I wish that I made a note of where I got them from, but I didn’t.  Most of the recipes I got from http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/ and just changed them to fit my family.

An important side note about juicing:

If at all possible ONLY USE ORGANIC FOODS when juicing!

When I first started juicing, I didn’t think it was all that important to buy organic, I mean how bad could our food be?  That’s what I thought.  Reality showed me that it was pretty bad.  When we first started juicing we noticed that right after we drank our juice we had these really terrible side effects- burning and itchy throat, headaches, etc.  I thought it was just a detox, but what I discovered was that it was an allergic reaction to the chemicals that were on the produce.  We switched right away to organic and the nasty symptoms went away.  YUCK!!  Imagine what that was doing to us? I shudder to think!
