If you steam your veggies and blend instead you can have the added benefit of all the fibre. Hot and cold soups are great for detox and it adds variety.

I like making a detox soup at least once a month. I add onion, chard, zucchini, carrots, celery and sometimes tomato. Cook with light veg stock, water, paprika, cayenne (good for motabolism)and a splash of lemon.
Add fresh herbs for flavour too.

If you make a soup from cualiflower, broccoli, zucchini, onion and carrots and blend it till smooth it tastes creamy a rich without added milk or fats.

Beet juice is excellent--you'd be surprised--one beet can make a difference. Also, you might want to add Swiss Chard, celery. a few slices of ginger. When you drink the juice, chew to tell your stomach that you are eating. The broccoli can be a bit strong. You can also add parsnips (they are sweet) and you can add carrot greens. Watermelon--you can juice the rind as well.

That's too bad. Raw beets are one of nature's nutritional power-houses. For variety, try superfruit smoothies. Some of the fruit powerhouses include mango, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, raspberries of all color, cranberries, apple, orange (include the pith), cherries, pitted choke cherries, sarvice berries, and plumbs. Add nutritions nuts and seeds such as sunflower, hazlenuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds, and peanuts.

For veggie juice meals, use tomato base, and add nutritious veggies such as onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Season with a hint of salt, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, sage, etc.

Season fruit juices with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, or mace.

Combine milk, water, and frozen fruit (especially banana) in your blender to make blender sherbet.

Use your vegetable juice blends to make soups. Just heat and add seasonings.

That should help you find variety.

Thank you every one. I love juicing so far, I don't have very many cravings for other foods and when I have had one, they pass the minute I start making my juice. I do eat one meal and oe snack per day that is solid food but healthy. Todays meal was a veggie salad with a half serving of olive oil and balsamic vinegar mix, and today's snack was a 1/4 serving of skim mozzarella cheese one button mushroom, wrapped in two slices of lean turkey sandwich meat.

My wife and daughter both hate beets, but this is their favorite breakfast juice:

3 large carrots
2 apples
1 lemon
1-inch piece of ginger
1/2 beet
