    This tastes so much better than it looks! While I was taking the photos I thought "Hmmm....better just gulp it down, no sipping on this one!" But really, it tasted very good! One thing to note is that the juices separate if you leave your glass sitting too long, so drink it up right away, or else give it a stir. I added an extra lemon, just because I love lemon. Thanks for a great cleanse drink!

    I have to admit, I was expecting this to taste awful. I thought worst case I'll have to add sugar. I've never eaten a beetroot or dandelion in my life. I made a slight modification to this recipe, I did not have any lemon on hand, so I juiced half a lime (unpeeled.) All I can say is WOW! This juice is delicious. Even my skeptical husband enjoyed a glass. A helpful tip, when juicing these ingredients; juice the beet and dandelion in between the more water packed apples and carrots. I did the beetroot at the end, and since it is very fibrous, did not push through much beet juice. I would juice in this order to get the most optimal juice, first apple, dandelions, second apple, beetroot, carrots and then your lemon. Looking forward to making this juice recipe again.

    This is just wonderful! The beets really add a lot. I love my juicer, and I love the apples, carrots and beets. If the lemon is too tart for forsome tastes, leave it out, or add a bit of sugar, Splenda or honey But try it first WITH the lemon and without sweetner.


I'm a little shy, but here's a photo of my 4 week old kitten from a couple of years ago, to add some cuteness to my page. She cried out from a bush outside a friend's house one evening. I was visiting my friend because she was going to have surgery the next morning. Since you can't really say "Well, good luck with the surgery tomorrow...and that kitten!", I took her home. This photo was taken the next evening. She's now a very smart adolescent who excels at tricks (sit, high five, stand up, lay down, speak). We're currently working on harness/leash training. She carries that little bear in the photo around the house sometimes. I am on a constant search for really healthy, yet tasty recipes. The ones I collect and use most often are low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar, and use whole foods. I plan to add all of my healthful recipes here, in order to help others who are also interested in eating healthfully most of the time. I strongly urge anyone who is also wanting to eat more healthfully to subscribe to the Nutrition Action Healthletter (NAH) from the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). It's like the Consumer Reports of food (more info can be found under Subscriptions, below). I copy and print their Brand Name Rating sheets for a binder I take grocery shopping, so I don't have to spend quite as much time reading labels. See the subscriptions section, below, for the link. I have obtained a lot of helpful information from physicians and nutritionists who believe that good nutrition equals good health. The list of people and books is so long, I stuck them at the bottom of this page. My favorite cookbooks are down there too. My Cookbooks page is more helpful if you sort it by author's order or alphabetically. Disclaimer: There is one cookbook of my favorite pre-healthful eating recipes that I could not bear to throw away...not just yet, anyway. I'm attempting to transform some of them into less harmful recipes. <img src=><img src=><img src=><img src=> <img src=><img src=><img src=><img src=>
