Manual Skinny Eats: Recipes for before & after your juice cleanse
Honest and truly, I crave this juice! Soon to be featured on the blog will be my recipe for The Pink Lady Margarita. Oh, yeah. Apples are the most versatile of fruits for juicing as they blend well with nearly any fruit and vegetable while adding sweetness. Look for organic blemish-free apples with very firm flesh and tight skin.
Apples are a good source of Vitamin A. They also contain Vitamins B and C as well as riboflavin and are high in two important phytochemicals: pectin and boron. Here are some benefits of apples:.

The French use the peels of apples in preparing therapeutic remedies to treat rheumatism and gout as well as urinary tract conditions. Most people know that grapefruit, and all citrus fruit for that matter, is high in Vitamin C. However, citrus fruits are rich in limonene, which is thought to prevent breast cancer. Furthermore, Ruby Red Grapefruit is high in cancer-fighting lycopene. The combination of carotenoids, flavonoids, terpenes, limonoids and coumarins makes citrus fruits pack a powerful all-around cancer-fighting punch.

Scientists now believe that the metabolism in our fat cells can be increased by the phytonutrients found in raspberries—especially rheosmin, also called raspberry ketone. By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin may be able to decrease the risk of obesity as well as fatty liver disease.
When shopping for raspberries, select organic, whole, plump, brightly colored berries. Sort and discard soft or broken berries.

Juicing has caught on like wildfire and is taking the world by storm. The movement is far from over. In fact, it has now become a lifestyle for many. More and more, people are jumping on the bandwagon and for good reason. However, the benefits of juicing are numerous and quite universal. Whether you wish to enhance your already raw diet, or if you simply wish to take on a round of detoxification to better your health, you will enjoy bringing juicing into your life.
See a Problem?
I never knew how much I would enjoy juicing as being a part of my daily routine. As a general rule, and being a recent convert to juicing and adopting a more raw diet lifestyle, I prefer to juice my vegetables for easy digestion but eat my fruit so that my body gets the healthful benefits of consuming fiber to help metabolize the sugars fructose and glucose in fruit.
However, sometimes my mind and body craves freshly squeezed fruit juice. From time to time, as I mentioned above, I enjoy fresh fruit juice as a part of my diet. When I do juice my fruit, I do not include any vegetables. I do not wish to debate my choice in food combining as it is purely a matter of personal preference and dietary needs.
I am trying to heal my gut after taking a super-strong antibiotic that messed me up. In fact, as part of my food-combining regimen, I eat melons separate from other fruits as well. It is suggested that at least two to four ounce glasses of vegetable or fruit juice a day, along with a raw diet, is the healthful way to go when detoxing. Our Pink Lady juice comprises the very best of the crop in fruit for detoxing and an energy boost—Honeycrisp or Pink Lady apples, ruby red grapefruit and red raspberries.
So refreshing and the apple, citrus and berry flavor profile simply cannot be beat!

Simply use a blender or high-speed blender and then strain the pulp from the juice using a fine mesh sieve which can be lined with cheesecloth to catch the most solids while pressing on the pulp to release the most juice. I like to use a large 4-cup glass measuring cup to catch all the juices and then pour into a large pitcher.
I hope this information proves to be helpful to you. Thanks again for stopping by with your question. Happy juicing and wishing you the best of health! I have been working on changing to a completely raw diet to combat arthritis. The swelling has gone down in my ankles and I have energy again! I will be sharing your blog with everyone. Hi Stacy, I am in love with detox juices! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for writing, Jenny! Well, this particular detox juice is fab and I hope your husband enjoys it. However, you can make it along with the fiber of the fruit sans raspberry seeds , too, so your husband gets his fiber along with the fantastic flavor blend of the fruit juices. I really enjoy it that way, too.
Thanks again for writing and have a great day!
