    Just bought a juicer

    I just bought a juicer and thought I'd post some blends that seem to go quite well, according to my taste buds.

    My favourite so far is

    1,
    1/2 honey melon
    1 yellow mango

    2,
    1/2 a pineapple
    2 green apples
    1 lime
    1 medium cucumber

    3,
    1/2 a water melon
    6 strawberries
    20 black grapes

    I've only just bought it so I'll post some more as I find the ones I like.

    Anyone else got some good un's?
    I would post pictures but life's too short.

    Water Melon Juice.
    2 cups chopped seeded watermelon
    1 cup crushed ice
    2 teaspoons honey
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

    Her indoors favorite juice she don't drink alcohol so orders when we are out as well.

    Summer's favorite fruit has more going for it than a good excuse for a picnic. Turns out this sweet and juicy treat is loaded with a come-hither compound that turbocharges blood flow in much the same way Viagra and other "performance" drugs do.
    The compound is citrulline, which your body converts into l-arginine, a blood vessel relaxer that enhances circulation to all your vital parts.

    Check this guy's site out:

    Fat Sick and Nearly Dead | a Joe Cross Film

    The movie is very interesting.

    Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead (2010) - IMDb

    I used to blend up fruit and recently bought a juicer after watching it although once I tried a juice fast I was getting splitting headaches, I smelt like a bums nut sack and had no energy, classic traits of toxins leaving your body? So I got into doing it in the morning but following it up with food later on. His web site a ton of information on how to do it.

    The benefits are huge unfortunately, I am in the USA so don't have my juicer at hand. consequently I am 3-4 kg overweight ater 3 months being here.....

    Todays attempt was ok but I will next time use less celery and the amount of juice you get back from a pappaya makes me think it's a bit of a waste.

    whole celery
    1/2 a pineapple
    2 large oranges
    1/2 a pappaya

    I bought a Tefal for 6000 baht from Cental here in Pattaya. The reason I chose this was because it was 1000 watt and the others were only up to 700 watt and also the saleslady (who strangely enough seemed to know some product info) pointed out that most of the others relied on plastic hinges/clasps to hold them together which , she said, can often break. The Tefal has a stainless steel clasp.

    I've never owned a juicer before so I can't really rate it against any others. It does seem like a bit of a job for cleaning it but there again all the otheres had the same amount of bowls and parts to clean.

    Central probably had a dozen to choose from so I'm sure some self appointed juice maester can go take a look and tell me I'm a wanker for my choice of machine.

    Overall I'm very happy.

    Any idea how long the juice is good for. I was told that after 30 mins it is getting past its best, but that was from a fella down the pub.

    Just out of intrest, has anyone tried a juice only diet?

    I've been reading that a week of no grub and only juice is a great de-tox.

    Oh, but does that mean no beer?

    Sory Bungie, I just re-read your post. Did you drink beer to keep your spirits up?

    is using a juicer a money saver over the commercial juices that can be purchased or is using a juicer more on the lines of wanting different flavors that are not available in the store, more natural, or some other reason?

    It's a far more healthier juice and yes you can make your own flavours but I dare say the bog standard juices are cheaper in Tescos. A bit like when I cook at home, seems to cost me a fortune.

    worth a try if it is healthier. no refined sugar or preservatives in the home made juice and it is fresh, or as fresh as the vegetables that are used are.
