I've never been an overly ambitious juicer but have always admired the many that could maintain a juicing lifestyle. One day I will conquer a 24 hour juice fast, for now I like to use it as a supplement.
Since I'm fairly new to juicing, I add a wee bit of agave nectar and that tends to take the earthy edge off of the root vegetables. Also, incorporating some fruits can naturally add some sweetness.
Are you a juicer? I would love to read about your favorite juicing combinations!
My purple juice was a hodgepodge of fruits and veggies. It's amazing how many veggies/fruits go into a glass. 3 apples, 2 pints of blueberries, a 1/2 cup of micro greens, a bundle of chard, a bundle of dandelion greens and 3 beets! Whew!
Juicing is the fastest way to digest all the nutrients from veggies. I eat a lot of veggies but definitely don't take in the recommended 6-8 servings, juicing makes that number much easier!
