I love Juicing! It’s just the best and I can’t believe it took me so long to finally start doing it. Every morning, I make my veggie juice, and it makes me feel so good. I’m telling you, I have more energy than I have had in a long time,  my skin looks amazing and my hair feels healthier and softer. By the way, the Juice tastes delicious! What I also really like is when I clean my juicer, all the veggie waste goes straight into my Valentina composter (, which then makes nutrient rich material, that I then dig into my vegetable garden beds, where I am growing the vegetables for my juice. Coming full circle is a great feeling on many levels: Reducing waste by not adding more to my weekly trash output, improving the nutrient deprived soil in my garden without using chemical fertilizers, growing my own vegetables which nourishes the soul and putting something in my body that is so naturally healthy.

New tip I just learned: When you are almost finished putting your vegetables in your juicer, add the Celery last, because it picks up any stray veggie bits because of it’s high water content. I recommended Juicing in the January issue of my Almanac, and here is a link to buy the same wonderful juicer that I use:
