Way to go Jules!

What are you doing for juicing these days? For the detox, will you be using more roots, like beets (and leaves), ginger or burdock? Or sticking to the greens?

On a different note, I've been using liquid chlorophyl recently. I'd like to learn more about the copper complex that is part of this formulation.

Increased range of motion and less pain?! Keep going! Before you know it, you'll be back at Muay Thai...

...or Tai Chi.

I hope back to muay thai!!! fingers crossed!

I did 7 days this time around. I juiced all sorts of stuff. Fruits and veggies. lots of combos. celery, carrot, beet, spinach, kale, cucumber, cabbage, cilantro, ginger, mint, fennel, lemon, blood orange, papaya, apple, pineapple, watermelon, tomato, garlic, grapes, grapefruit, onion, pear

My favorite fruit juice combo: papaya, pineapple, (fresh) coconut water

My favorite green juice combo: celery, granny smith apple, parsley or cilantro, spinach, kale, meyer lemon, ginger (and sometimes cucumber)

meyer lemons definitely make a huge difference being less tart.

How's your juicing going?

Jules, sorry for the late reply.

Wow, you are very ambitious with your program. I am down to juicing simple combos 2-4 times weekly. Mostly, carrot-ginger, often add apples. I've been slacking on carrot-beet (including the greens, which are extra nutritious) Always organic.

Last year, I read all the juicing books I could; many said to avoid fruit-veggie combinations, but not one explained why. The Gerson folks teach this in their seminars, while offering the obvious exceptions. That credibility and 50 year legacy of learning/research/healing was good enough for me.

I took this picture late last year of my beet/green-carrot-ginger juice, as I sat in my living room. The reflections from a mirror in the room accentuated the magic and health in healing foods. No touch-ups. Let your food be your medicine!

I look forward to juicing with you some day. Maybe I can be your muay thai punching bag. I may occasionally move to make it remotely interesting...

Question

Hi Jules, hope all is well and you are back in to the juicing groove. A question to you and others -- have you looked at or do you own any of the Ninja products? I am looking for a multi-purpose system for food processing and blending.

I love love love my ninja! although I would like to have a vitamix, sadly it is not in my budget, so I have a very low end juicer which does not work very well.

My ninja on the other hand is great! I use it to make smoothies, chop all sorts of vegetables, and chop nuts. It is a lifesaver when I make soups and other recipes.

Here in Canada it occasionally goes on sale for an extremely reasonable price.

So although it is not a high end system at all, it has served me very well.

Forgot to mention...I have the ninja master prep pro. Have been debating buying one of the others.

Omega juicers are the way to go. Also, Dr. Mercola is a VERY good source about all things health. The guy was ahead of the curve, esp about the benefits of Fish Oil and the dangers of grains

Default Sorry I missed your posts Rich!

I think you sent the first one as I was preparing for surgery and then I totally missed the other. Did u get a ninja? I don't have one, I have a cuisinart food processor, oster blender (amazingly it works great) and a juicer. I like to take up as much space in my kitchen as possible. one day hopefully I'll get a vitamix!

As far as fruit/veggie combos go, from what I know that is true, not to mix, except certain things like green apples work with greens and oranges and carrots are supposedly a good combo, but I've never tried.

I was so inspired by my journey, that I am now on my way to becoming a licensed holistic health practitioner, certified clinical nutritionist and certified master herbalist. I'd like to help educate the masses on natural medicine and detoxing the environment.

Let Me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Jules, glad you are doing well!

Hey, is your Oster good for making purees and green drinks? Even though I researched, reviewed and looked at many models, I am still not sure what machine to buy. Every machine seems to have both really good and really bad reviews...just like doctors!?

If I want to liquify veggies, for both soups and drinks -- what machine should I get? Or which Ninja?

On a tangential note, you may have seen this Whole Foods revelation:

Whole Foods knowingly engages in massive GMO deception, says undercover video by 'Organic Spies'

Finally, I got a new system for food processing and liquefying foods. I bought the new Ninja Mega system:

I found the online coupon on the Ninja facebook site (15% off) too. I look forward to getting more nutrition in my body and making healthy, raw foods!
