Juicing For a Healthy Lifestyle 


No doubt you have heard about the juicing phenomenon somewhere in your comings and goings. Dr. Oz and the queen of all media Oprah Winfrey were discussing at a late night infomercial giving you a grocery list of health benefits from their high tech juicer, like I said before, take control of your choices and do what is good for your own needs.







What is juicing and why is it good for me?

Juicing is the extraction of juice from fruits and vegetables, in an effort to retain all the phytonutrients, enzymes and vitamins that whole foods themselves ordinarily have. It does so by leaving behind the fiber, pulp, skin, rinds, etc.

In fact, the digestive system more readily digests liquid than whole food it makes sense doesn’t it. So juicing’s first mission is to promote easy digestion.

Eating your fruits and vegetables is still good for your health as it has always been. One of the main reasons juicing appeals to so many people is because it’s  often a great way to get many nutrients in a very pleasant way and if you think about it how much of this foods could we get in our system at one time? with juicing we can have a large amount in a cup and nowadays that we tend to be on the go, go, we can bring our juice along, I prefer to manage my schedule and enjoy my juice slowly and consciously instead. If you are not a fan of eating fruits and vegetables, you can drink your daily fruit and vegetable nutritional needs in a glass, yum! easy right?.

The second reason is that it would be nearly impossible to consume a large number of vegetables and fruits that you can easily juice in order to gain the same amount of vitamins and nutrients.

Juicing can be performed with a blender or with a variety of juicers( we will do a post on juicers coming up). While a blender mixes everything together, leaving you to do the lots of work straining the liquid from the pulp; juicers are specifically purposed for extracting the juice from the pulp a great way to go.





 Juicing Recipes for complementing Weight Loss 

Juicing is the fastest and tastiest way to get all those healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes that our modern diets are lacking. If you are looking to lose weight then try our juicing recipes for weight loss.

They are highly nutritious, taste great and will help you along. In fact, many people have lost as much as 20 pounds in just two weeks of juicing! Keep in mind that everyone is deferent  and don’t push your self-trying to accomplish what other people claim, my experience is that when you crash diet the body you most likely be back at the same weight or perhaps more than before aside is not good for your entire system is best not to resource to extremes they are never good slowly and conscious diet is best, weight comes from our way of thinking also and what emotions we constantly feed our selves so is a bit more to it than just food the concept is mind body soul.

One of the main benefits of juicing is that liquid puts very little stress on your digestive system but too much does have an impact on your kidneys so slow and steady with juicing don’t over do it! is a lot of nutrients that the organs have to process. This means you have more energy, feel great and have a super healthy diet at the same time.

Juicing also allows you to consume much more fruit and vegetables (but be careful of putting too much fruit in your diet) that can equal too much (SUGAR in the form of fructose ! again balance is the key) than you would typically consume in a regular diet. It also helps to suppress hunger pangs, which means you can avoid succumbing to unhealthy foods and over snaking.


Can Juicing help me lose weight?


In short, yes it can!But like we said everyone is different There are many well-documented examples, and even documentary movies, demonstrating the power of juicing to help weight loss.

Even if you are not quite ready to go extreme and commit to a full juice fast, juicing can help you lose weight and vastly improve your diet, we prefer doing things slowly and getting long lasting safe results instead.



Here are some of the ways in which Juicing aids us losing weight:


Prevents hunger – Juicing gives your body all the nutrients it needs, and then some! When your body is lacking nutrients, it makes you hungry. In this way, you will eat less and have fewer junk food cravings.
Is convenient – Modern busy lifestyles cause us to make many poor diet decisions because of the convenience of fast food. Juicing takes just a few minutes and gives you fresh, delicious, healthy juice that satisfies you. This means you eat less junk food.

All Fresh – Since juicing uses all fresh produce, you can limit your exposure to processed foods. The harsh chemicals and additives in such foods actively contribute to weight gain. Going fresh foods, especially if you use organic produce, you can avoid exposing your self of such risks. Additionally, juicing is free from all preservatives since you control exactly what goes into each drink.

Flavour – Most of us could do with eating more healthy vegetables. Juicing helps us get the best of these in a flavorful way.

More energy – The goodness of juicing makes you feel great and gives you sustain energy.

Detox – Green juice full of chlorophyll combined with lemon is particularly detoxifying and can really help your liver and kidneys to flush out your system.




The juicing movement has gained and retained momentum for several years now, and for good reason. Consuming raw juice from clean sources (organic vegetables & fruits) is one of the quickest ways to ingest plenty of nutrients at once.

As a food group, fruits & vegetables are detoxifying in nature (some more than others). These plants contain potent detoxifiers that aid your body in flushing out the toxins you’re exposed to in day to day life. Keep in mind, so many toxins come from unexpected places, making regular detox a necessity for everyone.

Harsh chemicals like petroleum derivatives and toxins can be found in your skin and body care products, in the air you breathe, in the water you drink and in the food you eat. However, you don’t have to be subject to any of them. Certain daily precautions can be taken to avoid many of them:

  • Buy organic skin care products (including deodorant, shaving cream, toothpaste and facial moisturizer to mention a few)
  • Invest in organic food when you grocery shop. This will minimize your exposure to pesticides
  • Use an effective water filter at home to lessen what enters your system
  • Stay away from harsh chemical-filled household cleaners and air fresheners. Pure Castile soap, baking soda, white vinegar and essential oils can go a long way in replacing generic, toxic products

The Science Behind It


For example, beets are one of the most effective detoxifiers that you can readily find in your local market. Beets contain a substance called betaine, a compound that actively helps the liver flush out toxins.


  • Betaine also defends and protects the components of the liver to ensure it’s not compromised by malnutrition. This is just one of many substances naturally occurring in vegetables & fruit that are made to help your body flourish.
  • Here are some other impressive substances that can be found in your produce:
  • Raspberries: contain rheosmin, which increases cell metabolism
  • Pineapple: contains bromelain, a substance that aids recovery and reduces bruising/inflammation
  • Carrot: contains a unique fiber that helps detox negative estrogen
  • Citrus fruits (lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange): all contain substances called carotenoids, lycopene & flavonoids which are a powerful alias to life challenging conditions.
  • Kale: contains two powerful antioxidants quercetin & kaempferol. And the list goes on here is a great place to do some of your own research and become acquainted with food and vegetables very powerful qualities.


Benefits of juicing


These liquid meals also provide your digestive system with the chance to take a break, as they are easy for your body to assimilate and absorb. Swapping out a few empty-calorie, heavy meals a day for one of these fresh juices will help you feel like a much better version of yourself.

Juicing boasts these incredible health benefits that make it well worth your while to start a juice habit:


  • Helps you become lighter with a decreased body fat percentage

Liver: Your second largest organ


In regards to the anatomy of your body, it’s important to note that your liver is the second-largest organ in the body; second only to your skin. Its primary job is to purify your blood and detoxify your system.

With the help of a nourishing diet, the liver does its job well. You’ve just got to provide your body with the tools it needs to thrive and a juice that empowers liver function is a must.

Beets, beets and more beets, they are great for the liver!!!! here are a couple of recipes to help the liver stay healthy and clean, this doesn’t mean you can drink a bunch of alcohol or eat polluted food.



1 Beet Root  approximately 3″ diameter

2 leafs of a medium size Cabbage

3 Carrots medium size

1/2  Lemon (2-3/8″ dia)

2 handful of Spinach

1/4 of a  Pineapple


Clean and place in the juicer, enjoy

The Effect of Sugar on Your Body


It’s important to know that not all sugar impacts the body in the same way. Sugar that comes from fruit, fructose, does not cause your blood sugar to spike like refined table sugar does.

That said, it’s still important to note that sugar can be overdone. The human body does not require large amounts of sugar to work optimally. The contrary is actually true. Sugar is an indulgence and should be treated that way don’t get confused.

Fruit, along with containing fructose, also contains a plethora of healthy enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that will fuel your livelihood. Thus, fruit is not something to be eliminated or feared. Just pull in the reigns and make sure you don’t go overboard consuming mostly sugar in your diet.

Your body (and liver) will benefit most from a balanced diet that is complete with sources of fat, protein, and carbohydrates at every meal. This balanced approach will also ensure that your blood sugar doesn’t spike more than it should at each meal.

All things considered, these juices are fantastic additions to your health. Just know that to achieve your healthiest self, you should also reach for a good source of protein (nuts, seeds, beans) and fat (hemp, flax, chia seeds) to accompany your juice.




Cucumber juice is a really good natural diuretic, it promotes the flow of urine. It can promote hair growth and supports the bones nails and skin due to its high silicon and sulfur content.

Spinach juice is known to help to cleanse and regenerate the lower bowels and the intestinal tract, plus it is a great support the teeth and gums helping pyorrhea.

Turnip leaves are known to contain a very high percentage of calcium the most in any vegetable.  Combine turnip leaf juice with carrot and dandelion juice to support the bones and teeth.  another quality of Turnip leaves is that they are also a strong alkalizer, especially when combined with celery and carrot juice.

Watercress juice added to carrot, parsley and potato juices has been helpful for emphysema.

Beet juice is known to be helpful for menstrual disturbances and during menopause.  Take 2-3 ounces two or three times a day as needed.


Here we would like to share information from Dr. Norman W. Walker we personally are great fans of Dr. Walker juicing systems we have used it for over 30 years with great results and we wish for you to enjoy and get the benefits of it.

For 99 years, Norman W. Walker, Ph.D. Doctor of Science, proved through extensive research that well-being and a healthy long life can go hand-in-hand when we are aware how the body works with relationship to what we feed it.
Since the turn of the 20th Century, fresh vegetable and fruit juices recognition of their value is now definitely well researched, by professionals as well as laymen. The reason for the efficacy of the properties of juices lies in the fact that, by separating the mineral elements and the distilled water in the food from the fibers, this liquid food is easily digested in a matter of minutes for most people. The digestive processes required to separate the mineral elements from the fibers, on the other hand, involve labor and time – actually hours – to be expended by the digestive organs. These processes of digesting whole raw vegetables and fruits use up so much energy. A portion of the “solid” food eaten is then diverted from its nutritional goal to be used as fuel to generated the amount of energy that it takes to break down the whole vegetables and fruits.

This is the answer to the frequently asked question: 

Why not eat the vegetables and fruits WHOLE? instead of taking the time to make juices? Actually, there is no real nourishment in the fibers, however, fibers are very useful and are needed for their own purpose. Fibers act as an intestinal broom. When fibers travel through the stomach, the duodenum and 25 feet of small intestine, these fiber particles reach the colon in the form of microscopic cellulose. The colon considers the cellulose as fiber and uses it as such with great benefits. Without fiber, the Colon, and the body as a whole will not maintain a healthy state.

WHAT’S MISSING IN YOUR BODY? with most people ENZYMES are missing in their bodies.

Dr. Norman Walker wrote “the human body is inextricably dependent on the quality of food that it intakes” and it should be common sense since food and oxygen are what makes the body stay a live correct? Our bodies rely on nutrients that come from the fibers of fresh fruits and vegetables that help us when we encounter ailments and illness.
There is no more powerful medicine than the properties which come from freshly squeezed fruits and vegetables. Dr. Norman Walker spent years researching the benefits of cold press juicing and concluded that juicing was the most efficient and natural way to cure ailments because it was the only method which separated minerals and water in fresh produce from the fiber, and was digested into the bloodstream in a matter of minutes.
When you juice you cleanse your colon, digestive system, blood, urinary system and saturate your tissues with nutritional value to aid in general nourishment. Juicing every day can help prevent health challenges and helps the body to regain a healthy state

Here we are sharing a recipe from our medicinal juice recipe collection below when you are feeling off and need an aid to get back on track, tired or stressed this recipe can give you a boost.

Here is a warning from Dr. Walker to be aware of: As a rule under no circumstances consider that fresh-raw vegetable juices are a form of concentrated food or medicine for that matter when they are in their natural state. As a matter of fact, they are among the least concentrated form of foods, and yet the most nourishing.


Juice to aid with Infections

When we have an infection is our body’s way of saying it has been an over accumulation of waste matter and toxins and is a warning for you to take better care of yourself is that simple. Drinking juice and fasting for a day or two can do wonders for the recovery of your body’s organs and will help in the elimination;l. of accumulated waste and toxins inside the body.

The following juice recipe works on infections of all types.



1  piece inch long of fresh Aloe Vera
1 Apple clean with peel
2 Carrots cleaned with the peel
1/2 of cup of alfalfa leaves
1 clove of fresh garlic peeled
These amount of ingredients makes 1 glass and should be drunk three times daily until the infection is over.


The process

1. Cut carrots, apple (with seeds and peel) and Aloe Vera into small pieces.
2. Peel garlic and remove 1 clove
3. Rinse Alfalfa leaves
4. Place all ingredients in the juicer, one at a time to ensure that they get fully processed.


Nutritional Information

Aloe Vera is an adaptogen this means it can boost the body’s ability to resist illness. It is full of polysaccharides which help stimulate white blood cells (the immune system warriors) in your body. Alfalfa leaves can help to guard against a wide range of health challenges. Its roots grow deep into the earth (30 to 100 feet) that definitely is a fact to contain a variety of trace minerals.

Enjoy the post and please share and like if you do we will have part 3 of the post coming up.















Hello, and welcome to I-RAMA Blog.  We wish to thank all of you for your huge support and all your loving feedback.

This week’s post is about Juicing, I personally have done juicing for many years, I don’t do long-term juice fasts, due to the fact that my body doesn’t do well with it for longer than a day or two, so when I wish to give my digestive system a break from processing so many solid foods, I do juices room temperature, never cold from the fridge or with ice, and I combine it with liquefied soups for a nurturing broth as a foundation. I learned not to do the juice later in the day or at night for my type of body, I usually do probiotics at this time, especially when I include probiotics in my juice and my personal combination with Aloe and such. So here, honor your body and use what feels good to you, there is no one general recipe for everyone that is why we are individuals and it is important to remember it so you don’t hurt your self with the one rule fits all. When we personalize anything in life we connect, and here we became conscious, and there is a powerful place to own our path. I grew up eating whatever we grew and there is so much value to that. We have disconnected from most of what we use or do, everything is outside our selves, we eat food that we don’t have a clue how it grows, where it comes from, for the most part, it never gets to mature in the plant, we don’t consume a full nutritious product, not to mention pesticides, GMOs and the new chemical warfare that was introduced to our food. We are offered out of season foods that are supposed to be able to travel  from far places etc, I have spent most of my life with this knowledge so I have respect for local, organic conscious products and love to connect with them the way I make our food, and I wish for you to have as much fun with your food also and be aware what goes in your body, something great happens when you ingest foods from this conscious place.



Amazing Benefits Of Carrot Juice by Norman Walker




Let’s get Started



A beginner’s guide to getting started with juicing









Is juice the same thing as a smoothie?


No, these are two very different things. They’re both very healthy for you, and one isn’t better than the other, necessarily.

A smoothie is made in a blender. It’s blended, not juiced. With a smoothie, you retain the pulp (which is insoluble fiber). This can be either gross or simple depending on what you’re blending. A blended drink yields a lot more because of the pulp, and some people like that, but others find it difficult to drink all of it, due to the thickness.

Juice is made with a juicer. Juicers ‘juice’ your produce and separate the pulp (the insoluble fiber) from it. You discard the pulp and drink the juice.I use the pulp for soups or I definitely compost it. You still get fiber in the form of soluble fiber. I know, crazy, right? You just learned something new today.

Juicers are items like a Breville juice fountain, Omega VRT350, Omega 8006, etc. Not a Nutri bullet! that is a blender. Those blades chop things up like every blender works. It has pulp in it no matter how much you blend it. It can’t turn into juice unless you separate the juice from the pulp you have to strain it if you don’t want the pulp.

If you only have a blender and still want to juice, you still can! If you get a cheese cloth or something similar, you can strain your blended drink and turn it into juice. It’s a little more work and won’t yield as much as a good juicer.

There’s nothing wrong with smoothies. We love those too, but there’s just something about the juice that keeps us making it daily and enjoying the entire process. This is not about of “what’s better? Juice or smoothies?”, is about “what do your preference is?” and here we are sharing with you the difference between them.


Is juicing healthy even do you don’t get any fiber?.



Fiber is what helps move food through the digestive system, but for the most part, it’s not fully digested. There are two types of fiber: ‘soluble’ and ‘insoluble’.

When you juice, the pulp you see in the ‘pulp bin’ is mostly the insoluble fiber.

You’re still getting plenty of soluble fiber in your juice. Even if your juice gave you 0 grams of fiber, it still is very healthy for you.

It’s like saying that your water isn’t healthy because it doesn’t have fiber in it. Juice is a healthy beverage and shouldn’t be relied on for your insoluble fiber.



What’s the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?




Insoluble fiber is the leftover pulp after you are done juicing. Only a small amount of this makes it to your juice. If you were to mix insoluble fiber in a glass of water, it would sink to the bottom, absorb the water and puff up. If you imagine that moving through your body, you can picture what it does for you. It’s beneficial to help get things ‘moving’ in your elimination and prevents constipation.

Soluble fiber will make it to your juice. Soluble fiber is ‘soluble’ in water. Soluble fiber (like gums and pectins) will partially dissolve in water and form a type of gel like substance. Soluble fiber absorbs digestive bile made by cholesterol, which creates, even more, digestive bile, which then helps to lower LDL (harmful cholesterol). Soluble fiber also can help moderate your blood glucose levels because it helps the sugar to be more slowly absorbed, which is why some diabetics report juicing to be helpful to them.

We personally love the consistency and the great flavors we can make with juice. We can juice things like sweet potatoes in our juices and create a delicious dessert-like juice, but we sometimes feel a bit limited with flavors in our smoothies, so here experiment and become your own alchemist and connect with your intuition.


What’s the easiest way to get started juicing?



Answer: Take the 30 Day Challenge. Before you embark in any fasting please consult your health practitioner, to make sure that you are suited for it is always best to be safe.


The 30 Day Challenge was created by https://juicerecipes.com/30-day-challenge/  to make this whole juicing thing as simple as possible while still allowing you to challenge yourself to get into a healthier habit/lifestyle of juicing. It’s not a juice fast, it’s just a challenge to drink a minimum of 1 glass of juice a day, every day, for 30 days.

The reason why it’s suggested for a beginner is that we supply you with the shopping list each week and we tell you which recipe to make everyday using that shopping list, so we’ve taken a lot of the thought out of juice so you can just focus on enjoying the lifestyle how about that.

After 30 days, you’ll have a new sense of how flavors come together in your juice and you’ll be able to start experimenting with your own recipes how fun.



Frequently Asked Questions



Can I store my juice?


Answer: Yes

The popular belief is that juice can last for up to 72 hours in the fridge, in an airtight container. Yes, nutrients are lost over time, but it’s a very slow process. We’re talking fractions per hour, here. You’re going to hear “you have to drink it right away!”, but just let those people do their lifestyle and have their beliefs, and you do yours. Don’t let people scare you away from storing your juice. You can juice with any lifestyle.



Am I supposed to replace a meal with juice?


Answer: No, unless it’s a lot of juice (32oz) is always best to consult with your health professional before embarking on such a journey and if it is approved, then you can do a juice fast.

We’re finding that way too many people are replacing multiple meals with just 1 glass of juice, and “feeling lightheaded for some reason”. Being healthy and losing weight doesn’t mean eating less, it means eating right. Anyone can lose weight by starving themselves and sometimes it docent work at all due to the fact that the metabolism slows way down to prevent the body from damage. Don’t do this, no one said to do this. Your sugar levels get tremendously affected and the body falls off balance.

Incorporate juicing into your life as a snack or beverage.

Even when you’re on a juice fast, you have to drink quite a bit of juice daily (~80oz depending on the person).That is a lot for the kindness to handle and for the rest of the body to be constantly trying to process all these nutrients we believe in moderation.



Does juice have a lot of calories?



Answer: They’re healthy calories! and no, for the most part when you juice vegetables the juice is very low calories and very easy for the body to process.

Don’t be concerned about gaining weight off juice because you looked at the back of a potato chip bag and saw it has similar calories, there is no saturated plastic fat in juice. A juice calorie isn’t the same as a potato chip calorie. These are very healthy calories, and if you’re worried about juice calories, you’re in the wrong mindset for being healthy, the more we obsess with weight the more likely it is for us to gain weight. The Spleen in Chinese Medicine is in charge of weight loss and the Spleen is affected by WORRY!!! So no weight loss with worry and obsession.


Here Dr. Marcola explains it in a very simple way.






How about the sugar?


Answer: Natural sugar isn’t the same as refined sugar, but here use your discretion not to add sugar to the juice and to research from juicing authorities to know what you are using to make your juice and what the natural sugar content of your ingredients is.

A gram of refined sugar from coke is nowhere near what a gram of natural sugar is. These are two very different sugars.

The nutrition labels in North America will be changing to include “Added Sugars” (refined sugar) within the next few years instead of lumping it all in “Sugars” because the USDA recognizes that this is a problem and common misconception.What matters is intake, how much your body actually uses it and in what form it’s delivered. It’s fair to say that too much of fructose, glucose or sucrose will result in health issues.

Here is a bit about the difference between both sugars

So what exactly is considered natural sugars? Natural sugars are sugars that are found, in natural products like fruits, veggies, and honey and (honey is a predigested sugar).

Glucose – refers to “simple” sugars, found in all foods that have carbohydrates. Glucose can be found in mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, etc. Glucose is vital to life and is in every single living molecule. It is also produced by your body and easily broken down by every cell in your body, a simple sugar that is an important energy source in living organisms and is a component of many carbohydrates.

It provides the body with its primary source of energy. This type of sugar comes from digesting carbohydrates into a chemical that the body can easily convert to energy.


From Carbohydrates


Most people get most of their glucose from digesting the sugar and starch in carbohydrates. Foods such as rice, pasta, grain, potatoes and processed sweets contain carbohydrates that can be converted into glucose very fast. The body’s digestive system, using bile and enzymes, breaks down the starch and sugar in these foods into glucose. This functional form of energy then gets absorbed through the small intestine into the bloodstream. It is then carried throughout the body, energy for the person to perform all types of activities, such as simple movements, demanding physical exercises or even thinking. Glucose it is such a vital source of energy, and it interacts with both the digestive and endocrine system in the body, keeping its levels — also called blood-sugar levels — in the bloodstream within a normal range is extremely important to a person’s health.


Glycemic Index


Foods can be rated according to the glycemic index, which indicates how quickly the carbohydrates are broken down by the body and the glucose is released into the bloodstream. White bread and most breakfast cereals have a high glycemic index, which means that the carbohydrates are broken down and the body’s blood-sugar levels raised more quickly. Most fruits, vegetables, and nuts have low glycemic indexes. Whole-wheat products and some types of potatoes have glycemic indexes in the middle, more on that in another post is a lot of information on that.

Fructose – another “simple” sugar, it’s also referred to as fruit sugar, because its main source is fruits (and also honey). Fructose is a bit harder to breakdown, as only your liver breaks down significant portions of it.

Fructose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in foods. It gives fruits their sweet taste. Crystalline fructose obtained from processing corn or sugar is used in food and beverages as a nutritive sweetener. It’s roughly 1.2 times the sweetness of table sugar in most food applications. Although originally marketed as a health supplement, crystalline fructose became available as a food ingredient about 20 years ago. However, when compared to all other naturally occurring and added starches, syrups, and sweeteners, fructose contributes only a small amount of calories to the average North American diet.

The primary uses for crystalline fructose include dry mix beverages, low-calorie products, enhanced or flavored water, carbonated beverages, sports and energy drinks, chocolate milk, breakfast cereals, baked goods, yogurt, fruit packs, and confections. Fructose has been used in whole new categories of food and beverage products, such as shelf-stable nutrition bars, soft moist cookies, pourable frozen juice concentrates and reduced-calorie products.



Can I add the pulp back into my juice?



Answer: absolutely and you can use the pulp and make soups, baked goods etc.

You can, but that sounds like you’re just making a smoothie the hard way. Why not just blend it all if you really want to drink the insoluble fiber?



Should I peel my fruits and vegetables?



Answer: Usually, no. that is part of the fiber and the vegetables and fruits have a synergy with the peel


This is a tough one to answer because there are hundreds of different fruits and vegetables. The general idea is to use common sense and if the skin is edible, you should be fine to juice it, make sure that is organic or the peel can have all kinds of pesticides and other components that will not be the ideal addition to your juices.


Here are a few tips that we’ve learned:


Peel oranges common sense right? leave as much of the white that is on the peel that is your Flavonoids and that in the Citrus fruits is what makes the rest of the fruit work, and by that I mean your vitamins work with the whole fruit that is the reason why nature design it that way and in foods in general is a yin and a yang side one being sweet and the other sour That’s natures balance. It’s edible, the outside of the peel is a bit bitter, I actually love to eat it my mother taught me to make chocolate cover orange peels and I love them!!

No need to peel lemons/limes. The peel gives off an interesting flavor. It’s up to you, anything bitter is great for the heart!


Look for part 2 of  Juicing benefits and facts and please share and like if you do thank you for your time and loyalty.
