I just got a juicer for Christmas and need some recipes. Anyone have ideas for 1) breakfast juicing recipes that will give me a morning energy boost, and 2) recipes that might replace or augment my lunch.

I'm trying to boost my intake of fresh veg & fruit.


What can I do next?

Look up the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" (about a man who changed his life/health by juicing), and you'll see the movie's website which includes juice recipes you can try.

For starters, I have used Cherie Calbom's recipes for a long time. she is known as the juice lady and gives guidelines of what specific fruits/veggies work best for specific ailments.. Additionally, I like to make juice that has Kale, frozen blueberries/raspberries, a hint of fresh Orange Juice... IF I don't have fresh greens, I simply add green organic powder.. lastly, I like to add either hemp seeds (high in protein) or the hemp oil.. no worries.. you won't get stoned and they sell it at the health food store :) also, check out Tim Van Orden's website.. he is a raw foodist/athlete and has tips on juicing as does Brendan Braizer.. Apart from raw food, these two guys are into what juices help you recover from sport's activity and that which gives you more strength and power.. they are worth the read...

good luck

My two favorites:

GREEN for vitamins & energy: Kale, Red Chard, Spinach, Celery, Purple Cabbage, Fennel (Anise), 1 Green Apple, 1 Gala Apple, and some red grapes. Experts say that you need to also have some fat with this because it is high in Vitamin A and w/o fat, your body won't absorb the vitamin A. So chase it with half an avocado or a spoonful of nut butter.

RED for cleansing: Carrot, Beet, Apple
You can add yam or parsnip to this w/o really changing the flavor.

Smoothies are going to make the best meal replacer.

My GO-TO smoothie:
serves 3-4 or 2 large cups

6 ice cubes
3/4 cup frozen berries
2 ripe bananas
1 apple peeled and cubed
handful of spinach and kale, rinsed
1/4 cup chia seeds (protein)
add water as needed to acheive smooth consistency

let sit for five minutes before eating or let the chia seeds soak in water for 5-10 minutes before blending


6 ice cubes
4-6 dates
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of sea salt
coconut milk
cocoa powder
raw peanut butter
a little agave or honey if needed to get desired sweetness

it's like a peanut buttery frosty!

My new favorite is 2 grapefruits (peeled and pith removed before juicing), 5 carrots, and 1 inch piece of peeled, fresh ginger. Very zingy!

Another one I like is 2 apples, 3 carrots and 1 inch piece of peeled ginger.

Oh so deeeelicious! Tastes like fruit punch- esp. over ice. From: The Big Book of Juices: More Than 400 Natural Blends for Health and Vitality Every Day by Natalie Savona
The Apple Cleanser
2 leaves kale
1 stalk celery
1/2 large beet (just the purple)
2 apples

I love this blend and this book is well worth the penny if you want to experiment! You can get it at Amazon, and your library probably has it or similar ones for free!

You can make a mean lemonade by juicing a bag of red/pink apples and 1 lemon. :) Add a little fresh ginger for some kick.

And look into raw bee pollen...its energy-boosting and antioxidant qualities are amazing. You can blend just a spoonful to your juice or smoothie.
