Heart Throb Juice and Organic vs. Non

I promised I would put up a weekly juice recipe, but my FeastUrEyes blog has been out of commission (if you haven’t noticed). I made the switch to this blog to simplify my life. So, side note, if you were subscribed to FeastUrEyes, I lost you! So subscribe to this one :o)

A quick note about organic fruits and veggies– I’ve been asked several times about buying organic fruits and veggies. You should really try to buy organic as much as you can, especially when you’re juicing. But, the basic rule is, the thinner the skin, the more easily chemicals can penetrate (for instance, celery and bell peppers). The same goes for root veggies like potatoes and carrots. These get a double dose of chemicals, because they receive what is sprayed above them and what soaks into the ground. So DEFINITELY buy organic root veggies. A local farm share is always a great idea because you know where your produce is coming from and that the farmer takes great care of it.

Back to the juice. I actually picked up a juice similar to this one from a juice bar by my house. I was out of produce and I needed my juice!!! So, I caved and bought it. I liked it, but wanted to make some changes. So, I picked up the ingredients plus a few more to make it extra delicious! Hope you enjoy!IMG_0549
