To help your body heal and feel good, homemade juices are a great option. I felt that I needed to skip the smoothie this morning and head straight for some juice. Both of my kiddo's are sick this week and thus I have been having a lot of really late nights. I mean up till 4:00am type of late night.
This juice contains celery, beets, green apples, one carrot and some swiss chard. It tasted nice and mellow and not too sweet, just the way I like it. I recommend organic produce for your juices.
This is what it looked like after the juicing.
Juice pulp that is left over. Don't throw this out. All this fiber can be used in treats, crackers and other raw food or even salads.
Juices are a great way to get your nutrients and lots of them directly into your body. Juicing takes out the fiber from the food and leaves the nutrient dense liquid. This allows for easy absorption with all enzymes intact. It can help to heal the body. Juices should be taken on an empty stomach for best results. If you are new to juices, take it slow and try a basic juice first, then after a little while start to experiment with flavors. You will be amazed and how they taste and how your feel.
You can also juice:
and much more.
I also had my homemade cereal for the last post. It turned out really good and I am pretty happy with it. The only problem is that I didn't make enough. As promised here are a few shots of the cereal after dehydrating.

Finished dehydrating. Could break into small or big chunks.
