If you juice frequently, mix up the recipe. Cinaglia lets the CSA delivery be her guide, since it offers seasonal produce that differs from delivery to delivery.
Both Cinaglia and Vallier-Thomas only use organic produce that hasn’t been genetically modified. Barr would approve.
At the least, purchase organic when it comes to the dirty dozen—items that typically have the highest pesticide residue. The list includes peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pears, imported grapes, spinach, lettuce and potatoes.
If you’re just starting to juice, you might feel more energetic, which could simply stem from consuming more fruits and vegetables in general. And that’s a good thing. Just practice moderation, Barr says.
“Too much of anything,” she says, “is not good. We know this in life.”
