Juiced!

I'm expecting my Juicer to arrive today....oh goodie, a new toy!

After much searching, I found the one I wanted half-priced at $600. After juicing 20 lbs of vegetables and drinking my new "superfood", I should be able to energetically sprint out and mow the entire property and leap tall buildings Maybe I can use the Juicer to mow the grass...it has more horsepower than my mower

Lots to consider when investing in a juicer. Most important is to find one that grinds slowly (lowest RPM possible)so that you don't aerate or heat the juice. So stay away from the more affordable centrifugal juicers...you would be better off just buying V-8 than spending $100-$200 on one of these.

Any veteran juicers out there with recipes? Do you get your 4-6 servings of fruits and veggies every day?

P.S. And contrary to popular opinion, BEER IS NOT A FOOD GROUP

I remember when I was a kid my oldest sister bought a juicer. A huge, heavy thing. Cost her a fortune. She made carrot juice, tasted like dirt to me. Hopefully you'll have better luck.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

I bought 10 lbs. of carrots today, and UPS didn't show up

I'm don't have very high expectations for taste, except maybe the fruits juiced together should taste pretty wonderful. This is a health/healing thing...many cancer patients either go into remission or prolong their lives by years using these juicers. The theory is that the body doesn't have to work digesting the fiber, so it can use that saved energy to extract and absorb the complete nutritional value of the food.

I can only hope it will be a step up in taste from dirt

IS TOO!

Okay, it's juvenile, but I don't have to act grownup ALL the time.

I think you may be surprised by the taste. Let us know.

Peace.

Never underestimate the value of childishness/playfulness

And I want to see some empirical data on the BEER!

Hi, ever thought about throwing in some sweet tasting fruits with your veggies? It will give it a better taste, and add all the vitamins it has. Just an idea, Wynn

Hey...thanks for visiting.

I'm sure I'm not the first woman to tell you but you have GOT to do something about changing your "handle"

Yes...I think I am going to put mangos and apples in with the carrots. Good idea!

For the veggies that may not taste very good juiced alone you might research some herbs that may help to improve the flavor. I grow quite a few in my garden that are perennials and many are used for medicinal purposes also.

BTW, are you using organic produce?

Caress! Do you know that you could have burned at the stake for healing with herbs in the Middle Ages

I'm researching most "beneficial to healing" flavor enhancers....ginger and tumeric root, garlic, and any & all sprouts. Have not yet gotten to the herbs (the herbs I grow are pretty generic) but that is a great idea!

MOSTLY organic...what I trust as organic, and then what I can afford. Also buying produce from local farms. Apparently the tubers like carrots HAVE to be organic because they absorb the chemicals and free-radicals from the soil.

Thanks for your input!

I would have been burned at the stake anyway...red hair and a birth mark, both are "signs" of evil.

...evidently tomatoes, onions and garlic are things we can never eat too much of, so keep those in mind when you are juicing.

Hey neighbor

Didn't now ya could get a juicer with variable speeds. Darn! Right now I'm juicing 3 carrots, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 peach, 1 yam and a hunk of celery. plus anything else I might find. Sometimes I juice in the morning, chill it and throw it in a thermos.

Hey,

Mine isn't variable....it grinds at 360 RPM only, which is slow by juicing standards.

Your recipe sounds yummy...I'll have to try it. Thanks

beer not a food group? come on, it's chock full of barley and pure spring water!! you really have been away from Canada too long, luv

of course, putting beer in your Juicer would probably not be recommended... *shudders imagining the foamy mess*

Now wait, as far as I know there are 3 food groups. Nicotine, caffeine (Mt. Dew) and protein (fosters). Well they work well during a war anyway.
