Help please! Veggie juice recipes needed
I need your help desperately! I was attempting to do a juice fast and I have already screwed up! The main problem I found is that I began to grow weary of the sweet taste of fruit juices and started desiring something different. I'm sure I could have (and probably should have) just drank water when I wanted something but didn't want fruit juice, but I thought if I could find some viable veggie juice recipes then I could switch up with those as well.
Thing is, every veggie juice combination I made I didn't like. I really don't like blended salads...but I need to find some veggie combos that are actually pleasant to drink and not feel like I'm choking it down. (*gags)
I really want to do this juice fast and I want to have more than just fruit juices to choose from. I even tried green juice but...wasn't feeling that at all (I used kale, spinach, cucumber, a little carrot and parsley)
Can anyone help me? Are veggie juices an acquired taste or is there something out there that even the most finicky person drank and actually LIKED? Any tips or little tricks to making veggie juice more palatable?
Looking forward to any and all responses!
I moved your post here under juicing, hope that¬ís ok!
Here are some combinations below that Kirk posted in another thread.
Also my favorites if you don¬ít want to do a bunch of veggie combos are tomato juice - just straight tomatoes and then a cucumber juice.
I know what you mean about the sweetness; you need to break it up. The tomato juice is so great.

Thanks for moving it and thanks for the suggestion about the tomato or cucumber juice! I'll give 'em a try.
Also, thanks for pasting the combo's from Kirk's post...But those were to boost iron for anemia...I'm looking for tastiness! LOL!!
Try this one Rawkinlocs,
3 medium carrots
1/3 stalk celery
2 or 3 sprigs of parsley
?love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control"
Will do! Thanks Kirk!
