Sunday in the Kitchen - "Drink Your Produce Beet Juice"

When Charles and I first started juicing after watching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" we tried out several different recipes and veggies/fruits until we found one we actually liked. We found this particular juice recipe online and it turned out to be the best tasting one we've made so far and the one we make most often.

We also modified the original recipe a little to suit our needs (basically we added beets) and the nutritional value is what I get when I plug the ingredients into My Fitness Pal, but I'm not sure if it's exactly right because of all the pulp and parts of the fruits and veggies that don't end up in the juice.

Also, everything is measured in grams because it's easier for us to get the nutritional value that way.

23 grams Raw Ginger Root
637 grams Carrots
797 grams Peeled Cucumber (we found that peeling the cucumber makes the juice less bitter)
595 grams Apple (peeled)
397 grams Pear
453 grams Beets

Follow your juicer instructions, juice and try to enjoy!

This recipes makes ten 6 oz servings.
