Water - Drink 64+ ounces of filtered water daily as plain water, or as a part of herbal teas, or in vegetable water, or as a part of vegetable broth. 

Herbal Tea - Add water to pot and bring to a boil. Add fresh (chop fine) or dry herbs of choice, then turn off the heat. Place a lid on the pot, and allow to steep until tea cools sufficient to be drinkable. Then strain, and enjoy! May add a little raw honey if desired.

Veggie Water

8 ounces of greens of choice (I like half Napa cabbage and half spinach combo)
2 quarts water
1 or 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, to taste
4 to 6 whole dates pitted

Blend dates in 2 cups water, then add  remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. Sip slowly! You can also omit the vinegar and add a banana or any other fruit. 

Vegetable Broth (always drink warm)

1+ onion 
½ cabbage 
8 large carrots (2 chopped, and 6 juiced)
1 large sweet potato or yam 
6 ribs celery 
1 28-oz. of canned tomatoes (optional) 
1+ tsp each: rosemary, thyme, basil, other herbs

S-blade veggies and add with herbs and water to fill pot to 2 inches from the top. Bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer for 30+ minutes. Cool to warm; then strain and collect into containers for use. Refrigerate what is not used immediately. Warm before using.

Fresh Juice Combos

Handful of greens of choice (juiced)
2 ribs celery (juiced)
½ to 1 cup water, as desired
2 to 4 carrots and 1 apple (juiced)

Stir juices together together and sip and savor! You can also choose to not juice the greens and simply blend them in with the water and juices.

Fruited Vinegar Water

1 cup fresh fruit (ex: pear, apple, berries)
2 cups water
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1+ Tbsp Raw Honey to desired sweetness

Blend ingredients until smooth. Enjoy! 

Date-Water Smoothies

3 cups date water (see instructions below)
2 or 3 large handfuls of spinach or other leafy green of choice
1/2 banana
1/2+ Tbsp apple-cider vinegar, to taste

Blend ingredients until smooth and enjoy! This is a way to enjoy plenty of leafy greens without spiking blood-sugar levels. Sip quart of drink slowly. The whole drink is only about 150 calories.

To Make Date Water: I like to keep a pitcher of "date water" in my refrigerator at all times. I make this by adding 6 large dates to 2 cups of water and blending it thoroughly; then, I add this date water to a 1/2-gallon pitcher filling the rest of the pitcher up with plain, pure water. Now, if you desire the date water to be sweeter for certain applications, simply use less water. The date water then becomes the base for making date-water smoothies, certain salad dressings, and even part of the base for stir-fries.

Any Berry Smoothie

Blend together 1+ fresh or frozen banana with 1 cup fresh or frozen berries and sweet date water until the consistency and flavor you desire is achieved. You may also add a handful of leafy greens of choice or drink plain. Sip and savor.

Any Melon Smoothie

Blend sweet ripe cantaloupe or other melon with 1 banana (optional), 1+ Tbsp coconut flakes (also optional), adding ice to desired coolness. This is wonderful with just a melon blended or with other additions. Sip and savor slowly!

Fresh Citrus Juices (if not allergic to citrus fruits)

This is freshly squeeze oranges, lemons, and limes, made into simple drinks.

I'm new to juicing!  Is there a juicer you would recommend that is not very complicated to make your drinks?  Does a blender ever do the job?

Blenders work awesome for smoothies; however, when you want to juice you will need a juicer. For a simple, good, and inexpensive juicer that has a great warrantee, we recommend the L-Equip XL Juicer (costs around $100. I could even do a bulk purchase of these if there is sufficient interest, to insure really good pricing. However, this simple juicer does not juice leafy greens, but does juice all solid vegetables and fruits very well. The cadillac of juicers is the Norwalk Juicer, which costs about $2400.00. The next best juicer that we recommend and actually have in our home is the Green Power Juicer. It costs just under $500 dollars. We can do most everything we want to do when it comes to juicing with the L'Equip Juicer. Jim
