If you have recently bought a Jack Lalanne power juicer and you are looking for some great juicer recipes, then look no further. Here is a selection of 5 healthy and tasty free Jack LaLanne power juicer recipes that are ideally suited for your power juicer machine. I have also included some of the health benefits that each of these juices can provide.
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Recipe #1
Ingredients – 3 apples.
I always juice my apples with their skins on to take advantage of the many antioxidants that are in the skins. In fact there are more bioflavonoids, potent anti-cancer and anti-heart disease antioxidants, in the skin of apples than there are in the actual pulp of this fruit! The skins are also a great source of a LDL cholesterol lowering fiber called pectin. Pectin is a soluble fiber that makes it into the juice, only insoluble fibers are discarded by your Jack LaLanne power juicer. So when people say that juicing removes all the fiber – it ain’t true! Pectin is great because it binds with LDL cholesterol in the intestines before it gets a chance to be absorbed into the blood stream, therefore helping to lower cholesterol levels.
If the apples you are juicing are not organic, then it may be a better to peel them to reduce the amount of harmful carcinogenic pesticides in your juice.
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Recipe #2
Apple, Lemon and Ginger
Ingredients – 3 apples, 1/4 lemon and 1″ slice of ginger root
Apples can be juiced whole, see Jack LaLanne power Juicer Recipe #1 for more details about this. Only juice the flesh of the lemon. The whole 1″ slice of ginger can be juiced, no need for peeling.
Ginger has been used for 1000’s of years in China as an anti-inflammatory aid for reducing joint pain and arthritic symptoms. Researchers today have also found this to be true. There is a specific antioxidant in ginger, named gingerol, that can help inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the body.
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Recipe #3
Rinse all ingredients thoroughly for this Jack LaLanne power juicer recipe. Cut off the carrot tops but no need to peel the carrots if they are organic. Don’t juice the seeds or the top of the bell pepper, just the main flesh of the vegetable.
Celery is one of the best vegetables for reducing blood pressure and promoting overall heart health. Celery contains antioxidants that help the muscles of the arteries to relax and therefore lower blood pressure. Celery is also a good source of heart healthy vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to protect our arteries from oxidative damage that can lead to atherosclerosis.
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Recipe #4
Ingredients – 2 cups of pineapple (flesh only), 1 handful of spinach, 1 handful of wheatgrass.
Cut up two cups worth of pineapple flesh. Rinse spinach and wheat grass and juice them while they are wet. While wet they carry a little more weight and this helps with extracting more juice from them. For even extra juice yield wrap the wheatgrass up in the spinach before juicing.
The spinach and wheatgrass in this green juice recipe are excellent sources of the antioxidant chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has been found in test tube studies to be extremely effective at protecting cells from becoming cancerous by protecting our DNA from oxidative damage that can lead to mutated DNA patterns. Chlorophyll also helps to build red blood cells because its chemical nature is almost identical to that of a part of our red blood cells called hemin. When we actually digest chlorophyll our digestive enzymes converts it 100% into hemin!
