What other juicers say...
I am really loving doing this challenge. I started on Boxing Day so really about 20 days done. I have lost 1 kilo in just over a week and am pleased with that. sometimes I replace lunch with a glass of juice and have another glass for a refreshing drink when weather is a bit warmer late afternoon. definitely the way to go. I try and use whatever vegies and fruit I have so don't always stick to your daily recipes.Rosanne
The 30 day challenge helped me drop my cholesterol 52 points and my triglycerides 800 point in just 30 days of juicing once a day.Paul
really enjoy you site. we started out with the 30 day challenge some months ago. didn't have any idea how to start. visited several sites , none compare to what you offer. haven't commented on here before, or any site for that matter, but as much as we "use" your services, thought i'd take the time and brag on you.Jerry
Decided to start juicing a few weeks ago. Here's a pic of my very first juice! I selected my juicer based on your fantastic website and am in the midst of the 30-day challenge. Thanks for making it easy and fun to juice!Judith
I started your 30 day challenge at the end of January, and had my physical in March, which included blood work and am ecstatic to report that my triglyceride numbers went from 519 down to 288! My doctor said that I no longer need to take my medication. Also, by adding aloe vera juice to your recipes, I no longer need my heartburn medicine. I am so excited and thankful that I no longer have to be tied down to a pill bottle!!! Thank you so much for helping to give me the tools to make these changes in my life. Not only are the recipes on the websites wonderful, but the e-mails that you send out telling about your struggles and how you overcame them are an inspiration that helps to keep me going. Thank you for all you do and keep up the great work!!!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is this?
Answer: A challenge to make and drink a glass of juice at least once a day.
If you accept the challenge, you have to juice at least once a day for 30 days straight.
You choose the date and we'll tell you exactly what to do and when to do it. We'll even give you the suggested shopping lists!
What's the purpose?
Answer: Get into a healthy habit of juicing.
The purpose of this is to get you into the healthy habit of juicing more often and living the juicing lifestyle.
If you do this for 30 days straight, you're going to thank us. Maybe you'll figure out why someday.
What do I need?
Answer: A juicer.
- You need a juicer.
- Not a blender.
- No, not even a nutribullet.
- To drink it, even if you don't like celery.
Why can't I use a blender?
Answer: Because it's not a juicer.
Don't worry, you're not stupid, this is just part of the learning process. Let us help:
Juicers make juice. Blenders make smoothies. A smoothie isn't juice.
Our recipes are made with juicers in mind. If a recipe tastes great juiced, it may come out gross or have a weird texture to it when blended. If you don't have a juicer and still really want to do this, you can google "juicing with a blender" for a possible way to do it. The ninja/nutribullet/vitamix and similar blenders don't juice, they make smoothies. I don't care what your grandma told you, it's still a blender. There's no amount of blending that will make it a juicer.
Is this only for beginners?
Answer: It's for anyone that wants it
It's a great way for beginners to get into juicing, but it's also for people who have juiced plenty before and just want all of the shopping lists and recipes figured out for them. It's also a fantastic way to challenge yourself to really get into a healthy habit of juicing, no matter what your experience is.
Is this a juice fast/cleanse?
The challenge is to drink at least one glass of juice a day. This shouldn't be followed as a fast/cleanse. You'll probably die.
If you're looking for a juice fast/cleanse, we have that available for purchase on the Juice Cleanse page.
Should I eat too or is this just juice?
This is basically the same question as the one above, but some of you skip over that.
You need to eat. You can't just have 32oz of juice every day for 30 days. Eat like a normal human being. Don't just eat 1 meal and drink 32oz of juice either, that's not what this is about, and you're going to screw up your metabolism doing that.
Again, if you're looking for a juice fast/cleanse, we have that available for purchase on the Juice Cleanse page.
Can I store my juice?
The popular belief is that juice can last for up to 72 hours in the fridge, in an airtight container. Yes, nutrients are lost overtime, but it's an extremely slow process. We're talking tiny fractions per hour, here. You're going to hear "you have to drink it right away!" but tell them they're wrong and that they can take it up with JuiceRecipes.com.
You can also freeze your juice. Yes, really! Ask grandma.
Can I use my own recipes?
We give you a suggested shopping list and recipe plan, but you're free to use any recipe you want. The challenge is to drink at least 1 glass of juice a day. How you accomplish that is up to you! Drink carrot juice for 30 days if you want.
What if I miss a day?
Answer: Who cares?
Even though the goal is to juice every day for 30 days, don't worry if you miss a day! Just keep going!
Does this challenge cost money?
Answer: Nope, it's all FREE.
We just want you to live the lifestyle with us! You just have to buy all of the produce. Feel free to send us money, though.
Can I do it with a friend?
The 30 day challenge fully supports a friend! The 30 day challenge challenge should yield around 2 glasses of juice a day. You can either drink it all yourself or share with a friend.
Can I do it alone?
Just because each day makes the minimum amount for 2 people doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy the full yield each day for yourself.
Can I afford the produce?
Answer: No idea.
There's no easy way to calculate how much it'll be for you, but it was built with cheap, high-yield recipes in mind. You wont see any expensive blueberries or raspberries in these recipes! To give you an idea, we've heard anywhere from $25-35 for week 1 in our area.
Do I drink the whole recipe?
Answer: Yeah, unless you're splitting it with a friend.
Doing it alone? You can drink it all at once or split it up throughout the day. It's up to you! Here's your chance to get someone else into juicing if you think it's a lot to drink in a day.
Doing it with someone else? Split it 50/50 with them.
The minumum amount you need to drink a day is 1 glass, but don't do the minimum, do the maximum!
Do I drink it with a meal?
Answer: If you want.
If you're drinking the whole batch (2 glasses) in one sitting, you could use that as a meal replacement. Otherwise, drink it with a meal or have a glass as a snack.
Seems like a lot of calories
Answer: Come on.
A juice calorie isn't the same as a potato chip calorie. Juice sugar isn't the same as coke's sugar. Don't be concerned about getting fat off of juice.
This one recipe has the same sugar content of a Pepsi! How is this healthy?! I'm reporting this whole site! Stay away from my children!
Answer: It's not a Pepsi
This is an extremely controversial topic because all sugar is lumped into the same "Sugar" name on nutritional labels. The natural sugar in your homemade juice isn't the same as added refined sugar. The easiest way to put this, and what scientists are starting to find, is that your body understands natural sugar more than refined sugar.
Don't look at the back of a Pepsi can and compare it to your juice. There's a ton of good things happening in your juice and comparing the grams of sugar from shelf items isn't the way you should approach this. That's what we believe, but you're entitled to your opinion. Also, calm down. Drink some juice.
I completed it and really enjoyed it! What should I do now?
Answer: Depends on your goals
A few suggestions: Choose recipes from the site or make your own and continue to juice every day. Start a Juice Cleanse now that you really know what you're doing. If you want to get into a healthier lifestyle, get Tracee's Weight Loss Program.
