Juice Cleanse: Sunshine juice

Posted by on March 13, 2014 at 6:47 am.

I juice daily, I found that none of the store bought juice can compare to the freshly made juices I make at home. Freshly prepared juices have more nutrients since none are destroyed since it’s not pasteurized.

Last evening, when the winds were shaking our house, I made this juice.

Sunshine Juice

  • 10 apples
  • 2″ Ginger
  • 2 lemons


  1. Add all ingredients to juicer
  2. Juice, serve and enjoy

I was going to add a habañero pepper, but I chose not to do so. I’m currently sipping on the last cup of this sweetly delicious juice (to which I added one teaspoon of black seed oil) and I am about to juice pineapple in my Breville so I can take it to work. I don’t need additional stimulants to wake me up in the morning. I continually am boosting my health based on the foods I chose to consume. It goes without saying that a boost to my health, also means I’m enhancing my immune system. All the ingredients used helps your body fight off a variety of ailments. That’s always a good thing.

    Ginger is good. I love the pineapple ginger soda at my favourite cafe in town…and the ginger tea at Indian restaurants. Very nice. It’s “heaty” though – the Chinese believes the body can be hot or cold so one must take cooling or “heaty” stuff accordingly.

    @suituapui, Oh I love ginger tea. I usually have a cup of ginger tea each morning. It has so many health benefits, I’d be foolish not to drink it often. I’ve learned about that “hot” and “cold” Ayuervedic nutrition. It’s fascinating.

    VERY true! I’m NOT a fan of store-bought Orange Juices – they just have a bunch of additional ingredients anymore – I would rather just have PURE – stand-alone Orange Juice in my Orange Juice!

    Exactly @Jennifer, I occasionally see a commercial when I watch YouTube videos, the man in the video is seemingly trying to say that a certain brand of orange juice has the same amount of nutrients as the simple orange. Of course, that isn’t true. That juice has been pasteurized killing a lot of valuable nutrients and it has been adulterated since additional things have been added besides the orange. No thanks, Mr. whomever you are. I’ll continue juice my own produce or eat it plain.

    A while back I heard that the oranges grown in the 1920’s had 80% MORE Vitamins and Nutrients in today’s grown Oranges…so sad!

    @Jennifer, In some cases that would be true, based on the seeds, types of soil used and a few other factors play an role. As for myself, I do apply nutrients back to the soil and that goes well beyond planting season so even though their is nothing in the ground our soil gets worked constantly. 😉
