Remember good juice must look good!

We have been juicing for many years, a perfect way to start the day in a hot climate. I prefer summer juicing over winter although the fall is very good given there are Kale, and other green veggies that give the extra push you need to start the day. But when it comes to juicing you need to use the Greenstar or a similar type juicer or you waste your energy, money and time. The Greenstar is perfect as it moves slowly and crushes all types of greens. We add seasonal pomegranate to the morning juicing, beets, citrus, carrot, apples and ginger.

If you decide to juice pay careful attention to the raw materials you use to make sure they are cleaned thoroughly and avoid using too much fresh beets. Excess consumption of beet juice might cause an accumulation of metals, such as iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus, in the liver, according to researchers performing lab tests in Budapest, Hungary. “Extreme consumption of table beet root can cause several disturbances,” in healthy patients, the researchers report in the September 2007 issue of “Acta Biologica Hungarica.”
