Juicing


Let me begin by saying I have been following along on all of your blogs over the past year or two watching all you juicers out there get healthier and healthier as I sit like a lame duck wanting to be doing what you are all doing but just.can't.quite.get.over.the.hump of drinking my fruits and veggies!!!!!  I much prefer chewing to gulping.  I never have been able to gulp anything down.. it's like my throat closes or something...can't chug a coke, can't chug water, can't chug a beer.  So for me to get down liquefied veggies is going to be tough.  I want to do it I just have a mental block.  It's the healthy thing to do for so many reasons!

So lets get back on track, I open up my email on Monday and what do I see?  A receipt from Zappos.  Not for shoes....wait for it...a juicer.  A juicer? Did you even know they sold juicers on Zappos?? Big R bought it.  Not for me but for himself??!!!! This is a joke to anyone who knows my husband.  He will start a trendy "diet" and it ends just as fast as it begins.  This is an expensive "diet" gadget so I'm holding him to it.  
I give him a week tops. 



Well, can't wait to report to you what "we" are juicing over here.  So, please do share your all time favorite juices!!!  I need to start off slow-nothing red or orange and nothing that is going to be thick.  Thick is not good.  We're gonna own this thing so I need to take advantage!  

Question-do you substitute a juice for a meal???  I'm just not sure I can do that???  Can you do both (eat and juice) or does that just quadruple your caloric intake and you end up gaining weight???  I want to shed a few lbs so hoping this will help me out!

haha love he bought a juicer. I finally have Matt on board or at least he holds his nose and gulps it down. I love the taste of it, I am weird like that. My favorite combos are: Orange, Carrot, Kale and then apple, cucumber, spinach, kale, lemon, and ginger. Can't wait to see if you like. and I never juice as a meal I get too hungry. I drink it first then eat breakfast!

Any combination of juices/veggies is good as long as you throw in a small apple for sweetness. My staple (and my two year old makes and drinks it too) is 4 carrots, 1 small gala apple, three handfuls of kale, 1/4 of an english cucumber, some spinach, and a small wedge of lemon or lime. :)

Be careful: most juicers have trouble with leafy greens. Only Breville 800jexl juicer blends well enough.

Go to http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/. He did a documentary on juicing (have you seen it?) and outlines some good plans here. My hubs bought a Breville juicer and only drank one juice. LOL. So, I juice every once in a while, but it mostly gathers dust under the kitchen cabinet. ;)
