What Not To Juice
- Rinds – Such as orange, and grapefruit rinds. Some of them contain bad flavors for one, but some contain compounds that are not good for consumption. Lemon and lime rinds may be juiced.
- Apple seeds – These contain cyanide. From what I understand they contain small amounts of cyanide usually not enough to hurt a person, but if you use several apples in your juice and juice frequently this could be an issue. It’s easy enough to discard the apple seeds and avoid the cyanide!
- Banana – Sadly, bananas just don’t juice well. They will clog the machine. Stick to putting those lovely tasty bananas in your smoothies!
- Avocados – They are like bananas, they just don’t have juice.
- Figs – Save them for smoothies.
- Eggplant – You can juice eggplant, but why would you want to? Yuck. Save your eggplant for eggplant parmesan or something…

Friendly Little Tips for Juicing Recipes
- Garlic/ginger juice can upset your stomach. It takes a lot of garlic to produce juice but really a couple of drops is usually enough, and much more than that might just hurt your stomach. I have taken garlic shots, but I drink juices daily. Some people can take it and some people can’t. Some people harden their stomachs to be able to take it.
- Leftovers! What to do with leftovers? Well here’s the thing, nutrients start degrading as soon as they are picked from the plant. My rule has always been drink it as soon as possible. Hopefully, immediately. If that’s not possible, chill your leftovers in the fridge and drink within three hours.
- Always use fresh produce! It’s super important, that the produce you use is free from mold, & bugs.
- Please wash your fruits and veggies before juicing them.
- Alternate soft veggies like kale, or spinach with something hard like an apple or carrot. Soft veggies tend to clog the machine, don’t put in too many, or too many at one time!
