3 Tips For Making The PERFECT Juice!
- Drink fresh vegetable juice on an empty stomach when possible. Juicing after you have eaten will slow down the absorption of the vitamins and minerals found in juice. Don’t be surprised if indigestion or heartburn occur. This isn’t uncommon.
- Treat the juice like a multivitamin. Many people make the mistake of thinking that juicing is a meal replacement when it isn’t. You should be consuming food within 20 – 30 minutes of juicing. If juicing following a meal, wait 20 minutes before consuming. Good to note that drinking your juice immediately after juicing is always best.
- One last tip is to use your juice as a teeth healer or preserver, by swishing it around in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Veggies are full of vitamins and minerals that will help prevent tooth decay. Once you have finished your juice, swish water around your mouth to remove any leftover residue from the natural sugars.
Another benefit to swishing fresh vegetable juice in your mouth is to stimulate more saliva production. The digestive enzymes in saliva will help your body digest the juice and improve the absorption of the vitamins and minerals into your cells.

I love making this recipe! It tastes like you are drinking a caesar. Let me know what you think!
Here are two other recipes I would love for you to try! Those of you office workers will benefit greatly from these two recipes. Your juice can last in the fridge for 24 hours. Again, fresh is best, but it’s always better to drink it a little less fresh than not drinking any at all.
Protect Your Eyes Juice
2 large carrots
1 large apple
My absolute fav juicing recipe is carrots and ginger — oh yum!
ABC Energy Boost – Apple, Beet & Carrot
2 large apples
1 large or 2 small beats
1 large carrot
It is very common for people to feel low in energy part way through the day, especially if your job requires you to sit down all day or to do repetitive work. This juice will give you a natural boost, possibly more than your coffee will. If you are able to somehow juice at work, that is perfect recipe for you.

Great juicing recipes! I have been juicing for close to 10 years after a cancer diagnosis. It assimilates good vitamins into the body and bloodstream quickly. Thanks for these.
My favorite juicing recipe is:
1-2 cups spinach
1 red bell pepper
1/2-1 cup carrots
1 red apple
A couple blueberries
1/2 a lime
However much water I prefer to add. I like my juice/smoothie to have a thick texture so I add a medium amount of water.
I love this recipe it tastes amazing! I love your recipe too, Flavia! And I really like tip #3 of Making The Perfect Juice! I’m going to try that!
Are you juicing these in a juicer, or making a smoothie in a vitamix (or another high powered blender). Thanks!
I love your input, thanks. I don’t juice but do smoothies in my Blendtec, any recipes ? So many have too many calories. Thanks.
My favorite juice is “green Lemonade”:
1 apple (granny smith will keep juice green; red skinned will color it a bit)
1 stalk celery
1 lemon (or lime – cut peel off first)
It really wakes up your taste buds and tastes great! thank for all your free recipes!
I bought your cook book and love it!
