Too many fruits and vegetables.

by Felicitas Sanchez

Q Is there a rule of thumb of "too many" fruits and vegetables in one setting? I just started juicing and not to familiar with the combinations, so I have just being doing my thing and adding what is good to me. For example this morning I made a juice with spinach, cucumber, celery, carrot, apple, grapes, lemon, and a piece of ginger. Is this too much for one drink?

A Your morning juice sounds great and if that combination works for you without giving you any digestive stress, i.e. gas, bloating, etc., then you’re doing fine Felicitas. Only your imagination can limit the variety of juices you can come up with.

Many juice recipes are limited to 3, 4, or 5 ingredients, and some would say that they would be more easily digested. That may be true of whole foods, but juicing can make them come together and digest better. So, once again if you’re digesting them well without any stress then mix all you like.
