Using it to add a bit of sweet and tart flavor to homemade juices is a great way to easy into becoming a daily juicer at home, at least until you’re more used to the flavor of fresh, healthy greens and vegetables and less reliant on sugar-rich fruits.

General Tips

Select apples that are firm, shiny, and free of blemishes, holes, and discoloration. Store in the refrigerator, or on the counter if you will be eating them right away.

Before adding your apples to the chute of your juicer, be sure to remove the stems and seeds first. Apple seeds contain a small quantity of arsenic, and ingesting them is not advised.

Potential Health Benefits

  • Immune health support

A Good Source of:

  • Vitamin C

Beautiful Beets

Beets contain a significant number of antioxidants, and the green, leafy tops are rich in beta-carotene. These beautiful greens as well as the roots are delicious in many types of recipes, like salads or a quick vegetable sauté, as well as fresh beverages.

General Tips

When choosing beets, avoid large and rough skinned ones. Small to medium-sized beets with smooth skin, firm roots, and a beautiful dark color are the best. Avoid those with bruises and soft spots.

While raw beets are mostly water and carbohydrates, they also contain a small amount of protein.

Potential Health Benefits

  • Support blood flow
  • Support bone health

An Excellent Source of:

  • Potassium

A Good Source of:

  • Calcium

Crunchy Carrots

Carrots are a well-loved vegetable that is delicious both raw and cooked in a wide variety of dishes.

They come in a variety of colors, each with its own subtle flavor differences, but they all share the same characteristic sweetness.

Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin A, and beta-carotene, consuming carrots and other brightly-colored vegetables containing carotenoids may support eye health.

General Tips

When you purchase carrots, look for those that are firm, free of blemishes, splits, and discoloration. I like to buy the narrowest ones I can find, as they are younger and sweeter than large ones. Carrots may be purchased with or without tops.

At home, remove the tops and place carrots in an airtight container with about an inch of water in the bottom. If you change the water daily, they should stay fresh for about a month.

Potential Health Benefits

  • Support eye health
  • Aid digestion

A Good Source of:

  • Potassium

Crisp Celery

High in fiber, phytonutrients, and sodium, celery is mostly water, and very low in calories. Its ribs, heart, leaves, root, and seeds all offer nutritional benefits.

Celery also contains antioxidants that may reduce inflammation and fight free radicals to reduce the risk of cancer.

General Tips

Choose celery that is crisp and firm. It should snap in half easily if you bend it.

Check the leaves as well – they should be light to dark green, and never yellow or brown.

To preserve its antioxidant qualities, celery should be stored in the fridge and used within one week of purchase.

Cut celery sticks may be stored with just enough water to cover them in a tight-lidded container. Be sure to change the water if you don’t use them up the first day.

Potential Health Benefits

Contains natural sodium (a little is necessary, even for a low-sodium diet)
May aid in reducing blood pressure

An Excellent Source of:

  • Potassium
  • Vitamin A

Super Spirulina

Spirulina is a blue-green saltwater algae that’s rich in nutrients. It is consumed as a nutritional supplement in tablet or powdered form.

Called a “superfood,” it is considered a complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids.

Spirulina is a popular addition to homemade beverages because a small amount adds a significant source of desirable nutrients like protein, iron, and vitamin A.

General Tips

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to six months, or according to package instructions.

Potential Health Benefits

  • May contribute to lower LDL and increased HDL cholesterol
  • May help lower risk of certain cancers
  • Supports good dental health
  • Supports good vision

An Excellent Source of:

  • Beta-carotene
  • Iron

  1. There is some great information on apples in this article! I did not know the apple originated in Kazakhstan. The apple has many health benefits, but unfortunately, I don’t think I could eat one on an empty stomach. For some reason, it upsets my stomach if I do that. These recipes look wonderful, especially the apple pie. I have to try it. Thank you for sharing.
