Juicing Recipes

Hi there boot camp challengers and anyone else interested in a health journey!

Here are 3 great juicing recipes that I have tried and love.  They are fairly simple.  A couple of them are an acquired taste, but if you are adventurous, go for it. 

I attended a juicing and cleansing class at Hourglass Fitness and Wellness (www.hourglassfitnessandwellness) presented by Karen Kipp who is a reflexologist and Holistic Health Coach in Kansas City for the last 18 years.  She offers fasting and wellness retreats and has offices in Overland Park and Liberty.  Her website is

The juices we tried were Clean Green Gingersnap, great for overall cleansing.  Spring Liver Tonic, focusing mainly on cleansing the liver.  And last but not least, Liquid Sunshine which contains powerful enzymes and minerals for aiding digestion.

Clean Green Gingersnap
1 green apple (cored and sliced)
2-3 handfuls of spinach or kale
half  of one whole lemon (yellow rind removed)
1/2 inch burdock root or radish
thumbnail size ginger root
clean green gingersnap

Spring Liver Tonic
1 green apple (cored)
half cucumber
1-2 stalks of celery
one quarter medium beet
Spring Liver Tonic
Liquid Sunshine
1 green apple (cored)
Handful of strawberries
1 large carrot
1/8 pineapple
small handful of fresh mint (optional)
For more information on juicing and cleansing Karen has several recommendations.  Read "Juicing for life" and "Juicing, Fasting and Detoxifying your life" by Cheri Calbom.  "Power Juices, Super Drinks" by Steve Meyerowitz. 
Karen also does guided 14 day diy cleanse challenge every season for only $29.00.  Also her website
