Juicing makes it easy to achieve what’s sometimes called ‘rainbow nutrition,’ or consuming the widest possible variety of fruits and vegetables.
We need a spectrum of different-colored fruit and vegetables in our diet, because each color holds its unique combination of nutritional coding that feeds and heals the body.
Rainbow nutrition – in all the natural colors going into this juice – is your best bet for nutrition and protection.
Simply remember the childhood ‘rainbow song’ the next time you’re at the farmers market or organic produce section.
With all the dazzling colors of the rainbow – Red and Yellow and Pink and Green . . . (you know the rest) – this drink really is like drinking a glass of liquid gold in nutrition!
- 3 ‘Red’ strawberries
Berries are best juiced in a slow juicer like the Juice Fountain® Crush. Go for organic. You only have to bite into an organic versus a non-organic strawberry to really taste the difference. Remember: not a lot goes into juicing, so the better the quality of produce, the better the taste of your final result.
- 2 slices ‘Yellow’ pineapple, without the skin, 1″ chunks
- 1/2 ‘Pink’ grapefruit, 1″ chunks
keep the white pith on because it’s loaded with nutrients. And the sweetness of the other fruits in this juice will tone down the pith bitterness.
- 1/2 cup ‘Green’ wheatgrass, snipped to 1″ lengths
This by itself is often referred to as pure liquid energy. Made up of 70% chlorophyll, it increases the body’s production of red blood cells, lowers blood pressure, and stimulates healthy tissue. Combining it here with all these fruits will cut the bite of wheatgrass’s intense flavor and will pump you full of Vitamin C and potassium.
- 1 ‘Purple’ beet, 1″ chunks
a great source of iron
- 1 ‘Orange’, 1″ chunks
like the grapefruit, keep as much of the white pith as you can
- a packet of ‘Blue’berries
the darker the color, the greater the antioxidants, and it is this blue pigment that helps protect tissue against oxidative damage
What a wonderfully thick mixture. If the juice is a little too thick, add some extra shine to your juice with a little mineral water.
Once you develop a taste for a rainbow of fresh-tasting concoctions, experiment with mixing your own variations.
This truly is a perfect liquid fuel source for the body. True beauty comes from within, and when you hydrate your body with organic liquid, everything shines like a pot of gold!
