Re: Juicers and Recipes

Hi, juicing has always been a routine from onset living with mama. Now that I'm living alone, I'm going back to my old habits.

This has made me hit online in search of a good juicer.  Although,i don't have much money still want an efficient unit that guarantees result. 

As i continue to search, i stumble upon https://consumerhome.org/best-juicer-under-100-reviews/ that features some top rated products at the most lowest cost.....

Few other sites i checked also have units of great value but seems this resource has some cheap units, i decided to bring it front for other to help me analyze and suggestions....

 

I'll also take loot at some of the resource you've provide for comparison....

Re: Juicers and Recipes

Oh I went down through this thread and found so many good advises on juicers and blenders. But I think this comparison is the best one. If you have one of these eight juicers, you are more than welcome to share your opinion with me. Like, you know, someone's real life experience is always better than just an internet comparison.  
Also I want to share my favorite recipe. Here are ingredients that you need

  • ¼ large honeydew melon
  • ½ cucumber, cut into large pieces
  • 1 lime, without zest

Take the melon, remove the seeds, then cut the flesh away from the outer skin and chop into chunks. Put the melon, cucumber and lime through your juicer, do some magic, drink your juice.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

Hello, can you please name the model of the juicer that you use?  I need to buy my first juicer, but I don't know which one to choose.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

That was actually really good!

 

I blended with unsweetened almond milk instead of water though, I think it gave it a little bit extra flavor.

 

Have you ever tried a wheatgrass juicer?

 

I believe I actually found my citrus juicer from you resource you listed, then I got my wheatgrass juicer here: https://www.officialtop5review.com/best-wheatgrass-juicers/

 

There's tons of good wheatgrass juicing recipes on pinterest I use here: https://www.pinterest.com/freshnss/wheatgrass-juice-recipes/

 

Thanks for this one, I'll use it again.

 

Hope you look into those wheatgrass recipes as well, let me know if you try any!

Re: Juicers and Recipes

There are a lot of recipes of juices for cancer patients because antioxidants from vegetables and fruits help against cancer cells.

 

Broccoli and pear juice, one of my favourite:

 

1 cup broccoli florets
1 1/4 cups pear cubes (unpeeled)
1 1/4 cups apple cubes (unpeeled)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1/2 tsp black salt (sanchal), optional

 

Just combine all the ingredients along with 3/4 cup of water in a juicer and blend till smoothSmiley Happy

Worth recommending, high quality products are worth this price. It fits in a kitchen cabinet for easy storage. When I start up to 10, the sound is a bit loud, but I think using a powerful motor can be expected. Every afternoon I use it to make smoothies, and yesterday I sprinkled some cauliflower as a recipe there. The price of this device may be higher, but it can do a lot of things and it's totally worth it.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

I strongly recommend you to make your own juice rather than buying bottles juice. The disadvantages of bottles juice is we don't know what fruit they use to make the juice. Some are using juice powder with coloring and a lot of preservatives. Normally bottles juice can last for few months. Definitely they are adding a lot of preservatives and it contain no nutrient at all. So you wont enjoy the benefits of juicing. Try to get a cheap juicer will do.

 

Here is a breakdown of my diet.

NO SUGAR - Sugar feeds cancer

NO PROCESSED FOODS

NO MEAT, FISH, SHELLFISH, EGGS - Highly acid

NO WHEAT PRODUCTS - Turns to sugar in the body

NO DAIRY - Creates mucus in the body that cancer thrives in.

NO TEA, COFFEE, ALCOHOL

Look up PH Kills Cancer. I follow a strict alkaline diet. Cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

Mine is a Phillips I am uk resident, it's not one of the top notch ones that presses and costs £200 plus, I paid about £80 for it, did have a cheaper one to start but this one is much better and easier to clean. I can recommend the following juice that I have in the morning, it takes some getting used to: I medium broccoli head (you dont get much juice out of broccoli) 1 celery stick and 3 carrots or more depending on the size. This will make a tumbler of juice about half a pint. If you can bear it I also add a teaspoon of tumeric and a desert spoon of flax seed milled. Also if you are taking wheatgrass a teaspoon with a slice of pineapple and an apple or orange juiced together is just about bearable! Unfortunately my job doesn't allow me to make juice most of the day so my receipies are more for health than enjoyment but I am sure there are some lovely options out there. I sometimes take carrot/apple and ginger to work.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

I went on a juice retreat after chemo in Turkey.It was one of Jason Vale's retreats look up juice master on you tube...I bought the juicer he recommends which is the Phillips one with the wide funnel that takes whole apples....I am a huge advocate of fresh juicing as the beneficial enzymes we require for energy are destroyed when store bought juices are pasteurised. Raw food also contains phytochemicals which are known to fight disease. I have lots of delicious juice recipes. My blender was a fairly inexpensive one. I juice every single day and my energy levels are higher when I do ....pm me for any recipes. I am so into juicing I did a presentation about it at work for a teaching job and converted my two interviewers who went out and bought juicers and got the job.

Re: Juicers and Recipes

Hi Flower20,

I've been juicing for about 8 or 9 months I drink a pint of organic green veg juice a day here's some recipes that I have devised from my blog site http://fightingthebeastwithin.blogspot.co.uk/p/juicing-and-anti-cancer-recipes.html, I have got a Anthony Worroll Thompson Breville centrifugal juicer which I found in a charity shop and have been loaned a Green juicer that uses the pressure process, both are good at extracting juice. If you google the name of the juicers you can pick up bargain ones on ebay for a lot less money.

Another fantastic lady I can recommend is called kris Carr she has produced a dvd and is a 'juicer queen' also has been living with liver cancer for the past 9 years on this juicing/raw/vegan diet. The link is http://crazysexylife.com/about/ she also has produced books titled Crazy Sexy Diet.
The next person is Dr David servan-Schreiber author of the anti cancer book here's link http://www.amazon.co.uk/Anticancer-A-New-Way-Life/dp/0718154290/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335089977&sr...

Hope this helps
sending you love and lght

Re: Juicers and Recipes

Hey there Flower20

Have to say, the best juicer is one you will use!

Ive been juicing for 12+ years, and was quite a purist, chose to buy a Matstone masticating juicer over a centrifugal one, as the former mimics chewing, and doesn't oxidise the fruit & veg when juicing. Though it was £++ (£160 at the time, but the best on the market & built like a workhorse!), I still get a lot of great juice, & it has a high juice yield (to the amount of veg & fruit put through it). However, after my DX my dear friend bought me a whole fruit centrifugal one (these are more readily available & cheaper) which I use with a blender to make green smoothies. Its quick to use, and easy to clean. Though the juice doesn't last as long with a centrifugal juicer (the spinning process to extract the juice fills the juice with oxygen, & makes it go off more quickly..) by putting a good squeeze of lemon & drinking the juice quickly, you still get good benefits.

May I suggest getting a good high powered blender, and trying green smoothies - blending what you would juice with kale / spinach etc. These enable you to get the goodness of juice, & the fibre from the veg / fruit, which aids elimination , giving your body something to bind the toxins onto to pass out of your body... & they are great too! Top juicing tip: blend in 1/4 to 1/2 avocado into your juice - thickens it up, & great for beneficial oils.
Tip 2 : Lindwoods ground flax seeds blended into juice / smoothie thickens & adds fibre, & essential fats too.

Yummy.. I'm off to make a smoothie now!

Hope this helps & good luck with your juicing!

I found the canceractive.co.uk website very useful and interesting. Its focus is complementary rather than alternative but it is very much focused on healing yourself as well

Juicers and Recipes

I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good juciers. Also, wondering if there are any good cancer diet recipe books out there. I have the Jane Plant one which I am reading, but I think is will just go organic now and cut out red meat and most dairy. Thanks
