One glass of juice changes the pH of the body sufficiently to turn a stubborn colonic into an easy one. It’s just that quick and effective. Digesting food takes more energy than any other human activity. Except for juicing – it requires no energy! Juice delivers hydration and nutrients into your cells in seconds.
These are juicers. They separate precious juice from the pulp. Yes, we all need fibre, and yet there are times for just juice. No it’s not a waste, you are making liquid gold.
Centrifugal juicers are quick (and noisy) and they heat the juice slightly. Masticating juicers are slower, heavy and generally more expensive. They deliver a superior juice in flavour and quality, more juice with drier pulp, and they can extract juice from delicate herbs. Centrifugal juicers are going too fast to get any magic from your herbs – but they will take larger pieces of fruit and veg, making for a quicker prep time. UK Juicers always stock a good range, and have tons of information.
Many people complain about how long it takes to clean the juicer, but really it’s not more than 2-2 minutes – quicker than scrubbing that congealed roasting pan…
Any juice is better than no juice. Use whatever equipment you have right now.
These are blenders. While most excellent, they are not the same as a juicer. You insert your ingredients, the blender mushes them, and you drink them in their entirety – nothing extracted. Blenders are great for adding superfoods, and making soups and smoothies. Whether buying a Nutribullet, Vitamix or Kitchen Maid get the most powerful one your budget stretches too. There is a vast difference between the Nutribullet 600 and 900 in horsepower.
You don’t need a ton of ingredients to juice. You can just juice 1 head of celery, or one cucumber:
- Celery juice
- Cucumber juice
- Carrot juice
- Cucumber, pineapple (cooling in the summer)
- Romaine lettuce, celery, spinach + chives
- Carrot, pear, fennel + ginger
- Carrot, red pepper, pear + red chili
- Cucumber, kale, celery + garlic
- Carrot, beets, apple + lime
Try juicing any vegetable and see how it feels and tastes (except aubergine, because ugh).
- Fennel, chicory, radicchio, romaine, chard, celery, cucumber, beets, carrot, kale, radish, horseradish, endive, spinach, garlic, chili, pears, apples, mooli, spring greens, grapes, grapefruit, tomatoes, pineapple, orange, etc.
Mike just released an updated Broom Cleanse from Vitality. Great info on how to best prepare for a colonic, and which foods work best as brooms.
“We consider broom foods and juices the “soap” and the colonic the “shower.
Broom foods hydrate and “sweep up” waste and colonics quickly cleanse it away.”
