Water Cooler II | Orange and Watermelon Juice Recipe

The Water Cooler II comes from the book, The Big Book of Juices: “Unbelievably light and refreshing, the watermelon takes the edge off the tangy orange”. I couldn’t agree more and I liked this one better than the Water Cooler which uses grapefruit.

This juice is a delicious, sweet drink and very enjoyable with a late afternoon snack of almonds. You can’t go wrong with this one.

You could try using less watermelon and adding some sparkling water.

 Water Cooler II

Nutrients: Beta-Carotene, vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulphur. Get a boost of energy when drinking this wonderful fruit juice.

In the Reboot Kitchen: Australia Day Juices | Reboot With Joe

reboot with joe recipe

Here are two more delicious recipes from the Reboot With Joe Kitchen. Both recipes are delicious and good for the body.

Nutritional Value

The yellow bell peppers main nutritional contribution to this juice is in vitamin C content. A 2/3-cup serving of yellow bell peppers delivers 306 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. This is a good time of year for vitamin C. You’ll also get 8 percent of the vitamin B-6 you need for the day from a 2/3-cup serving of yellow peppers. All of the B-complex vitamins promote healthy liver function, as well as healthy eyes, skin and hair.

In the other Reboot With Joe Recipe you’ll find one bunch of parsley. Parsley provides your body with vitamin-A, beta-carotene, vitamin-C, vitamin-E, zea-xanthin, lutein, and cryptoxanthin. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin-K and folates.

Australia Day inspired Claire (Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND) to come up with two beautiful green and gold juices for this very special weekend in Australia.

Juice Cleansing That Works Part I

Juice Cleansing Programs That Get Good Results

Make juicing fresh vegetable and fruit juice a part of your daily routine. Try juice cleansing (fasting) regularly and you’ll be surprised at the results you get. Some people complete a 24 to 72 hour juice cleanse once a month and some do it more often. Others will do  juice cleansing once a quarter or maybe twice a year. It’s completely up to you.

the big book of juices

You could try one day to start with. Just 24 hours of nothing but fresh vegetable and fruit juice. If it makes sense to change the oil in you car  regularly, then doesn’t it make sense to clean out your bodily systems too? If you’re doing a 3 day cleanse, be sure to stick with it even if you feel bad after the first day. This is a common reaction to a cleanse (detox), it get’s a little worse before it gets better. A lot of people report after a day or two they feel worse, but then after that the breakthrough just comes out of nowhere. The energy returns and you feel great!

I’ll be writing more in the weeks ahead about juice cleansing and detoxing. There will be more about the specific cleanses and recipes for individual organs of the body. I’ll go over a good first juice fast (cleanse) that just about anyone can do. If you’ve never done this before a good 24 hour juice fast is the way to go. That’s how I started.

Just one day of fresh vegetable and fruit juice (let’s not forget water). That’s a confidence builder. Then we’ll move on to a 3 day cleanse.  I’m a believer in moderation. I don’t think it’s wise to go overboard at first. Start slowly and see how well you feel. You can do a big 30 day cleanse in the future, but for now, easy does it. You’ll get better results if you start out with something manageable rather then going all out and trying something you’re not mentally or physically ready for. I’m in this for the long haul, not just a quick fix.

These programs are life changing, but only if you stick with it and are consistent.

Let’s try a simple recipe to build up to our first 24 hour juice fast.

For Breakfast:

3 or 4 carrots

1 small beet

1/2 cucumber

1/2 small lemon (peeled if not organic)

1/2 in. of ginger root

1 apple

Remember to wash everything thoroughly. If you’re concerned about chemicals/pesticides you can peel the lemon and cucumber. Even the apple, but I just wash apples. However, I do peel the lemon because it’s really strong otherwise. Do it to your taste. Experiment, have fun, enjoy and we’ll visit this again next week. Thanks for reading.

Important Note: If you’re diabetic, hypoglycemic, anemic, taking medication or have any serious health problems, please consult a health professional before trying a juice fast.

If you plan on detoxing, I highly recommend you get this book!

Integrating Juicing Into Your Diet

I have been asked many times, should I just juice or should I eat when I juice? When you only juice basically what you’re doing is a juice cleanse or juice fast. What I wanted to do when I started juicing was to intergrate juicing into my daily meals. That’s where I believe the real long term benefits of juicing are.

Integrating juicing into your diet will improve your overall health.

Studies show, only 20 percent of Americans eat five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables, and a mere 5 percent consume seven servings. Integrating juicing into your diet will help you get those needed servings of fruits and vegetables.

integrating juicing into your dietThe only thing you’ll be missing is the fiber and you can get fiber from other foods you eat. I’m not suggesting you juice all of your fruits and vegetables. Supplement your diet with juice.

For a complete diet you need the whole foods too. Raw or lightly steamed vegetables and raw fresh fruit are part of a healthy diet.

Integrating Juicing Into Your Diet

Lately I’ve been using a diet from the book, Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing. When integrating juicing into your diet I believe it’s best to follow a plan at first. Once you get into the routine, it’s easy to continue. “Repetition is the father of all learning”, I don’t know who said it first, but it’s true.


Juice of your choice

Hot cereal

Whole grain toast


Juice of your choice


Bean or pea soup


Juice of your choice


Stir-fry with vegetables and meat, poultry or seafood

Baked potato

Whole grain roll




In addition to the above I have snacks between meals which can include fresh juice, yogurt or nut butter on whole grain crackers. Celery, carrots and apples are great healthy snacks too.

I prepare my juice in the morning and store it in mason jars for later in the day. I don’t keep it for more than 24 hours, it just tastes better fresh  😎

I try to drink my juice about 20 minutes before my meal, so I have it on an empty stomach. This gives my digestive system time to absorb those fantastic and powerful nutrients.

If you’d like to see the diet plan in it’s entirety, please pick up the book, Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing. You’ll be glad you did.

More diet plans in the book, Juicing For Life:

  • The Sugar Metabolism Disorder Diet

  • The Immune Support Diet

  • The Elimination Diet

Also, cleansing diets and weight-loss diets!

Thanks for dropping by and happy juicing!

Juice Cleanse Recipes

Let’s look at a few juice cleanse recipes. I’m about to embark on a 48 hour juice cleanse or you could call it a juice fast (feast). This is a ritual of mine that I started performing regularly a few years ago. Actually my first juice cleanse was many years ago and I tried it with store bought juice. Yuck!

After the holidays is a great time to cleanse. I’ve found all of that holiday food just doesn’t digest well and it still may be lingering in my colon. Who knows what’s in there  😕

juice cleanse recipes juicingforlifeIf you read my last article (Hiatus From Blogging But Not Juicing) you may remember I was targeting constipation, headache and motion sickness. Here are some great recipes from the book  Juicing for Life: A Guide to the Benefits of Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juicing specifically for those areas.

Next up, The 48 Hour Juice Cleanse. I can’t wait to write.

Rich"s Go Green Smoothie

This is a simple green smoothie. I make this or something similar when I’m in a rush. Rich’s Go Green Smoothie. It’s healthy, easy and quick to make.

Why Go Green? Maca, maca gives it the blast as in nutriblast.

My Go Green Smoothie is so easy to make in the Nutribullet. I just love my Nutribullet Pro!, but if you don’t have one you can use a blender.rich

This recipe has just a few ingredients. My main ingredient is kale (organic). Kale rich in vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese and copper to list a few. To boost things I add some maca and some ground flax seed.

First a couple of things. My shortcuts. 1. I use frozen fruit. Organic when I can find it. Yeah when I’m in a hurry I’ll use frozen 😉 2. Juice from a bottle. I buy the best I can find. Organic when I can find it. No preservatives and no sweeteners.

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie


  • Kale – Buy organic. Fill the Nutribullet Pro cup to about 3/4.

  • Frozen fruit – 1/2 cup or one small hand full.

  • Maca – 1 tsp. No more than that because it will ruin the taste.

  • Ground flax seed – 1 Tbsp

  • Juice – Cranberry, 1 cup

  • Water – Fill to max line on the cup.

Extract for approximately 40 seconds or until smooth and enjoy.

If you’re looking for an energy boost, you’ll like this recipe. Maca powder is derived from a root that grows in the high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes and is known to be “Nature’s Viagra,” as well as a natural energy booster.

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie is especially good for women too because it includes cranberry juice and maca.

For women, maca decreases menopause symptoms, increases bone density and more.

Cranberry juice provides a number of important health benefits — especially for women. Cranberry juice is good for the prevention of urinary track infections, reduces the risk of breast cancer, enhances heart health and more. See the sources below.

You can find two of my main ingredients at a very good price on Amazon, maca and ground flax seed. You can also get a Nutribullet Pro there too. It’s the best price around that I can find. But of course I live in South Dakota 🙂
