I have been using juice therapy in my practice for more than 40 years and learned about it from other naturopaths who used it for at least 40 years before I started. Like many of my books, my first juice book, SuperJuice, was originally conceived to help my own patients. But when it was first published way back in 1999 I had no idea that it would become a worldwide bestseller. Most of the existing books on juicing were worthy but equally dull; it was SuperJuice that broke the mold and made juicing fun and exciting as well as healthy. I'm sure that SuperJuice was a major factor in the huge expansion of interest in juice therapy, the dramatic increase in sales of juicers' and the mushrooming of juice bars in city centers everywhere.
Now that so many of you have got the juice habit and have discovered for yourselves both the pleasures and the benefits of juicing, I think it's time to be a little more adventurous. Here in More Super Juice you'll find some fairly conventional recipes as well as some that I've devised for very specific purposes that may sound a trifle odd. Don't knock them until you've tried them, because even the strangest juices taste a lot better than they sound.
On one of my radio programs recently, the station sent a radio car and a reporter to the home of a lady who'd called a few weeks earlier complaining of chronic fatigue after a bout of severe food poisoning. I persuaded her to get her juicer out of the cabinet, where it had sat for two years, and sent her some recipes. Within two weeks, she'd called the station and said she felt fantastic and was never going to put her juicer back in the cabinet again. When our surprise reporter turned up on her doorstep with a bag of mixed fruits and veggies, I talked her through a couple of unusual combinations and the whole family joined in the tasting. Even her teenage son (who hates all vegetables) asked for a second glass of the beet recipe!
The great thing about owning a juicer is that you can put almost anything that grows through the machine. It's the perfect way to get extra nutrients out of the bits you might otherwise throw away: the outside leaves of the cabbage or lettuce, the red pepper in the bottom of your vegetable rack, the Brussels sprouts the kids won't eat, the half an onion left over from a recipe -- it's all food for free. There are no rules, no conventions; just let your imagination run riot. Of course you'll make some mistakes and the results will taste disgusting, but when you come up with a really fabulous combination, write it down in your own book.
