Hope you had a chance to read our Beginner’s Guide to Juicing
(Part 1 and 2).
This is the last of our 3 Part Series on Juicing, and the most fun!
I am going to give you the top four Juicing Basic Recipes that will help you get started in a way that is in harmony with the Great Master Teachers, Dr. Gerson and Dr. Walker.
Here is Dr. Gerson’s Basic Vegetable Recipe:
The reasons why Dr. Gerson used apples with carrots is because there is a chemical in apples, that, when pressed with carrots, it creates a powerfully healing combination.
This is a great tonic for children! They will love the color and it’s a good Basic Tonic for introducing juicing to your children, and/or husbands or wives who are not too keen on greens in their juice. Also, this is a good tonic for the elderly who have trouble with greens.
Here’s Basic Combination #2:
This is a fantastic basic Juice Recipe that tastes sweet yet it is quite cleansing due to the beets combined with the carrots and apples. Not only is this a good basic tonic, it also has powerfully cleansing properties for our liver.
This is a great tonic for teenagers who don’t really like juice, but tolerate the carrot/apple, and are looking to add some more veggies. Also this would be good for your husband and/or wife who is looking to be a bit more adventuresome. We don’t recommend this tonic for children under 5 years old, due to the detoxifying strength of beets.
Here’s Basic Combination #3:
1 handful parsley
1 handful spinach
This is an even more powerfully cleansing combination of juices, whereby when we add the greens, we are now working on the digestive tract and the liver/gall bladder. This will taste more ‘green’ but still will be sweeter than one would expect, due to the carrots and apple’s sweetness.
This is a good tonic for adults who are not too keen on juicing, but have already tried the carrot apple and beet and like it. We don’t recommend this tonic for children under 5 years old.
From these BASICS you can add the following to your Carrot/Apple combination:
Celery and their leaves
Red Cabbage (a bit stronger in taste)
Alfalfa Greens (very bitter but great for your liver)
Tips for Juicing:
Do make your vegetable juices more than 50% greens, unless you ease into it within ten days of juicing daily, otherwise your stomach will become distended, lots of detoxification will occur too fast, and you could also get a case of diarrhea, so be careful with the greens and start slowly, adding about 20% greens for the first week, then add an additional 10% each week until you get to 50%.
If you want a good SuperGreen TONIC, this is something we recommend to do on a daily basis, after you have gone a few weeks or more juicing up to 50% greens with carrot juice combinations.
This is our basic GREEN Tonic:
5 Celery Stalks
1 medium Lime
1 cup Parlsey
2 Golden Delicious Apples
You can ADD any of our GREENS mentioned above to this tonic, such as Wheatgrass or Spinach, or Kale or Chard or even Collard Greens.
If you want to tone down the green juices, then add CUCUMBER.
