No Fruit, No Problem Juice Recipe

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I’m a bit tomato-mad lately, which is a good thing considering Sydney is leading up to one of its hottest summers and the days have been intense, hot and sticky. Tomatoes offer specialized antioxidants which provide the skin with natural sunscreen protection against free radical damage from UV radiation. This helps in the reduction of sun spots, wrinkles and anti-aging.

I just finished a 5-Day Juice Only Reboot to give myself a much needed pep up – it always does the trick. I went to a fabulous farmers’ market and grabbed a few bags of ripe looking tomatoes and attacked my awesome vegetable garden that my husband has been working on this year (see image below!). So this juice is as fresh as it gets, and healthy, light and 100% vegetables.

If you like savory juices as much as I do, then you’ll love these too:
Piping Hot Palate Pleaser
Piping Hot Peppers Juice

Bloody Mary
Italian Tomato & Pepper Juice 

Here’s my latest savory juice recipe!

A New Spin on a Winter Root Juice

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

This juice is tasty, nutrient-packed and loaded with fresh, seasonal fall and winter produce. Celeriac is usually a main ingredient in my soups, but I decided to use it in this juice instead! And it turned out great. Celeriac is slightly sweet, and tastes somewhat like a pineapple, especially when ripe.

Like celery, celeriac is a rich source of electrolytes potassium and some natural sodium. Yes, sodium in this case is a good thing! If you aren’t familiar with celeriac, this is what it looks like when you are shopping at the market.

‘Beet’ the Heat Juice

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

When I’m feeling like my workout made me extra sweaty I love to use juice as a means for helping my body to recover and replenish electrolytes lost while sweating. Red, orange and yellow juices overall provide a good source of electrolytes (mainly potassium and some sodium). Beets in particular are known as a rich source of electrolytes, as one small beet contains about 300 mg of potassium and about 70 mg of sodium.

It’s best to drink electrolyte-rich juices about 1 hour pre-workout as a way to boost electrolytes in the body, but you can also drink them post-workout as a means for replenishing electrolytes lost through sweat.

Stinging nettle is also high in minerals so it is very nutritive! You juice this herb as you would mint, basil etc.

Cruciferous Carrot Juice

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, cauliflower, brussels sprouts) are well known for being super-packed with nutrients, fiber and antioxidants. They contain a compound called isothiocyanate that has been found to contain cancer-protective properties and may help to boost detoxifying enzymes in the liver. This juice is also a source of quercitin in the pear that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Let’s not forget about the carrots! They are a great source of beta carotene, vitamins A and C and great for boosting your immune system.

This juice is tasty with a zesty flavor and makes for a nice meal or snack replacement. To mix it up, add different herbs and spices like cayenne or basil. If you have thyroid issues and are worried about consuming cruciferous vegetables, learn more.
