The Case for Juicing

Today I read a smashing-sounding recipe for Sunshine of Your Love juice on You can find it here. It looked so tantalizingly delicious I literally got right up and headed into the kitchen to make some. I was not disappointed. Nom nom nom!!!!! (Or is that “slurp, slurp, slurp?”)

Why juice? Why not eat all our fruits and veggies? Don’t we need fiber and isn’t this wasting a lot of food?

Well, yes, of course we need fiber. Sometimes, however (and for me that time is lately) our bodies need a break from heavy digestive tasks. Juicing allows the mainlining, so to speak, of enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, without taxing the digestive system. My body has been pretty happy today and I think I have the juicing to credit for that.

And while some food could be wasted by juicing, I’ve used the pulp for flax crackers, a salad, or I’ve just put it into the compost pile where at least it encourages the production of more food!

You can read and hear more about the power of juicing at or at, as well as elsewhere online.

I strongly suggest you make some of this refreshing, nutritious Sunshine of Your Love as soon as you can, trust me!

Eat well, love well,
