Hello and welcome to my Juicing Recipes page:)
I have been experimenting with various combinations of vegetable juices and fruit juices and these are some of my favorite healthy juicing recipes along with some readers recipes which I do hope you will enjoy. Really, with some practice it won’t take you long to work out which recipes are your favorites are and which ones your body likes the most.I would love to hear of your juicing recipes adventures and the healthy benefits you gained, so, please feel free to email me with your stories. I would love to put them on the www.bestofjuicing.com website to share.
I generally prefer not to mix vegetable and fruit juices together but there are always exceptions to the rule, especially if you prefer your vegetable juices a little sweeter. As well as carrot juice being a great sweetener, apple juice is also very good to take the sometimes bitter edge off your vegetable juice. The dark green leafy vegetables produce juices are the most beneficial for your body. They are low GI , packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Vegetables are alkaline which is very important as we often eat acidic foods and our Ph level can be out of balance.
An optimum Ph level is between 6.5 to 7.5 on the pH scale. You can test your Ph levels with a simple test available from the chemist called urine Ph test strips. I have listed the most easily available vegetables for you to begin with and I am sure there will be some you can think of as you become more adventurous!
Vegetables to Juice

- Ginger for zing
- Radicchio lettuce

- Green Leaf lettuce

An interesting side note: Cabbage juice is one of the most healing nutrients for ulcer repair as it is a huge source of vitamin U.
