10 Random thoughts on juicing
1.) If you are juicing enough greens you will get about 10 grams of protein per 16 oz cup.
2.) I've been juicing oanges and strawberries and blending them in the ninja with a frozen banana and some flax meal for added fiber and protein.
3.) My juicer is a breville je900, I love it and suggest breville if you chose to get a juicer
4.) Joey is having some problems drinking the mostly veggie juices. I've been experimenting and have found two that I REALLY like. One has tons o' veggies and a bit of spicy V8 thrown in because I hate tomatoes so I won't juice them, but they are 'ok' (tolerable) in V8. I also REALLY like cucumber celery juice with a smidge of salt. Adding salt to any veggie based juice is going to up it's 'salad' flavor. ;) Also, joey is juicing mostly fruit early and then eating raw veggies at night for dinner this way he's not eating a ton of sugar and skimping on veggies. He just hates them juiced.
5.) I try and drink my mostly fruit based juices early in the day, this way I burn off the sugar as the day goes on and I drink mostly veg juices at night as to not go to sleep on a bunch of sugar.
6.) I'm losing about 1-2 lbs a day.
7.) I recommend The Complete Book of Juicing for info, tips and recipes
8.) Fool around with the amounts and types of fruits/veg that you use, you're bound to find something you like.
9.) I didn't have a very bad detox, I eat healthy daily. If you live on junk your detox will most likely be a little more unpleasant than what I've reported here as mine.
10.) Don't forget to continue drinking lots of water!!!!!
