I love juicing. I love that fresh juices are such a quick and easy way to inject some serious vitamins and minerals into my routine. These are two of my favorite fresh juices, and I drink them on the regular. Feel free to adapt these to your taste and the fresh, organic produce available in your neighborhood. Be creative with juices – just don’t go too heavy on the fruit because this adds sugar and can lead to blood sugar spikes.

I make all of my juice recipes in a juicer. My favorite is this Breville Juicer. If you are using a VitaMix instead of a juicer, you may need to add a bit of water to thin out all of the fiber.
