“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not something to be waited for, but rather something to be achieved.”
William Jennings Bryan

Juicing freshly, organically grown, fruits and vegetables as well as herbs could be compared to a rich and concentrated nutrients blood transfusion.
In no time the nutrients enter the blood stream.
It is especially beneficial to people who have difficulties eating fresh vegetables.
It is very important to juice organically grown products which are richer in nutrients and contain no toxins, no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides or other poisons.
We want to benefit from the fast, not add more toxins to our body.
You will reap the most benefits from freshly squeezed juice.
There will be no nutrients loss if you drink the juice as soon as it is squeezed. (Nutrients loss occur when juice is stored, as well as when it is exposed to oxygen.)
Plants and vegetables are our best healing friends. Since the down of times they have been use for health, vitality and longevity.
Never add sugar or any sweetener to fresh juice.
This would undermine the goodness of the juice.
Drink the juice slowly.
Drink at least 4 glasses of juice and 4 glasses of water during a day fast.
Fresh Raw Fruit Juice
Freshly squeezed raw fruit are delicious and refreshing.
They may also have a high content of sugar. Better refrain from those rich in sugar if you want to lose weight.
Better use fruits that are high in beta-carotene such as: cantaloupe, mango and apricots.
Juice can be diluted: half water + half juice.
Some people find citrus fruits juice too acidic.
Juice for better bowel movement:
2 pitted dried prunes soaked in a glass of water.
You can blend the prunes and the water together.
Juice 2 apples and one pear together.
Add the juice to the prune juice, stir well and enjoy the drink.
Fresh Raw Vegetable Juice
My favorite health cocktail to help the body detoxification:
juice 4 carrots, 1 apple, 2 celery ribs, ½ a cup wheatgrass or parsley together.
The carrots and the apple will sweeten this juice naturally.
My favorite summer drink:
refreshing cucumber juice
Fresh Raw Herbal Juice
Wheatgrass is very rich in nutrients, especially chlorophyll and antioxidants.
It is nature’s gift to help detoxify the body.
If wheatgrass is not available, try parsley.
The juice of Wheatgrass and parsley are very healthy but not very palatable.
The best is to mix them with fresh carrot juice or fresh apple juice.
If you feel adventurous try to juice together wheatgrass, spinach and apples.
You will need a special juicer to juice herbs. Not all juicer can juice herbs.
Personally I use the green power juicer and I find it very efficient but a little difficult to clean. Definitely the best juicer I had to extract herbs’ juice.
Enjoy juicing and enjoy a one day fast.
Let me know which one was more helpful.
