Juice for Emily: favorite juice fast recipes

My friend Emily Alford, who’s working on a freaking amazing novel, asked me for some juice fast recipes so I figured I should actually use this blog for what I intended, which is to create a resource for writers and artists to support their creative life with self-care through clean diet, yoga, meditation, frolicking… etc. Juice fasts are a great way to cleanse your system without getting the rough stuff that water fasts come with, like dizziness, low blood sugar, and general rage and unhappiness. They are nutrient-rich and keep you happily hydrated while giving your digestive system a break and giving you a fresh start and consistent energy. Emily asked me for recipes when she was actually in a Whole Foods, but I was at a talk by the literary agent Warren Frazier and didn’t understand the urgency of the request until about 12 hours later. Erm… so I made blog. 

Here are my top favorite juices:

Clean juice

2 zucchini (or cucumbers)

2 apples

1 stalk of celery

juice of half a lemon, squeezed (if it’s a Meyers lemon you can throw it in rind and all)

1 bunch mint

1 stalk of fennel

 

Energizing juice

8 carrots

4 oranges

1 apple

1 handful of unpeeled kumquats (optional)

 

Pizza juice (this is a disgusting name… please call it something else)

4 tomatoes

1 small clove of garlic

2 stalks of celery

1 handful of basil

1 small handful of oregano

2 carrots

juice of 1/2 a lemon

salt and pepper to taste

 

Sweet juice

1 cup of spinach (or any green of choice)

1 cup of grapes

1 apple

2 oranges

1 nectarine

 

Fragrant juice

4 pears

1-2 stalks of lemongrass

1/2 a pineapple

1 cup of grapes
