These first three juice recipes are from Jay Kordich, “The Father of Juicing.” Jay has been the spokesperson for “drinking your veggies” for over 60 years.

1 handful of spinach
1 handful of parsley
3 ribs of celery

“This tonic is great for nervous tension. The greens relax the nerve endings and combined with the celery adds more relaxation elements to this delicious tonic. It is also very helpful to intestinal/colon health.”The Joint Soother
½ medium-sized grapefruit (Remove the skin, but leave the white pith on)
Place the grapefruit and pineapple into the juicer and juice. Enjoy! Yields 16 ounces.

Robin Shirley says, “I love to make this raw veggie juice recipe. It is more on the medicinal side because of the garlic, parsley and ginger. The parsley for detoxification and the garlic and ginger for gut ecology health and some anti-oxidant power. The apples are good this time of year for cleansing the kidneys and they're in season, so this might be a good recipe for a fall issue.”
1 whole head of celery (about 10 to 12 stalks)

1 clove of garlic (optional)
