If you’ve read my articles “What is juicing” and “I bought a juicer, now what?” then you’re ready to go on your first shopping trip to pick up your first week of juicing ingredients! But where do we start?
1. Decide How Often You'd Like to Juice
If you are healing from disease or trying to lose weight, I recommend juicing 2x a day; once in the morning, and once in the evening. Sound extreme? The Gerson Therapy, which has been around for nearly 80 years, recommends patients drink between 15-20lbs of fresh raw juice a day, breaking it up to 1 cup every hour, for a maximum of 13 hours. With that being said, I think you can conquer two a day.
2. Decide What Recipes To Use In The Beginning
It’s hard enough learning where the ginger is in the produce section, let alone trying to remember 45 different recipes. You can surely make this a difficult lifestyle if you want; but I’m here to make it an easier one for you. Remember that juicing will not only provide your body with living nutrients, but help reverse or alleviate a lot of health issues and detoxify your body.
Most of my Members prefer to start off with sweeter juices to acquire a taste, then slowly go greener as they can tolerate it. Assuming that you don’t have any allergies, there are two staple juices everyone should learn and use.
If you’re not sure what to start shoving down your juicer shoot, these two recipes are perfect for beginners.
3. Go Shopping!

4. Prepare Your Juices
To learn how to put together juice containers, just click and print out above. The more you can prep at one time, the faster juicing will go on a daily basis helping to enrich your blood, promote energy and reduce symptoms from Fibromyalgia, CFS, and IBS (within as easily as a few days).
5. Creating The Habit
Juicing won’t work for you if you only do it every now and again. It must be a part of your day to day life when you’re healing…unless you intend on eating all those veggies? Didn’t think so.
Creating a juicing habit is about two things: time and discipline; well, so are most things when you think about it… Decide in advance what times of day will be easiest for you to juice, then stick with it! If you need more help creating your regimen, order Personal Reminders to receive full 24/7 juicing support. (ya, that’s a real thing, where have you been, under a rock?)
6. Branch Out To Try New Recipes
Once you’ve memorized these two juices and prioritized when you’d create them, it will be easier for you to explore new recipes to better meet your tastes or needs. Search Eat2Live2Love’s Juicing category online or ask Linda what she recommends you try next.
