I just had something delicious-did I mess up?

FAQ

Posted by WJS on 5 years ago

Hi, I just had one of the recipes that was delicious. I ususally stick to green juice adding apples etc.. But I just made the recipe that calls for 1 to 2 hot peppers but cannot find any. So I used:

4 tomatoes

2 red bell peppers

2 celery

3 small carrots

and then added cayenne pepper (quite a bit!) I had half cold and then decided to microwave it and have the other half hot. I thought it was delisious but worry that perhaps with that many tomatoes and also the cayenne pepper was a mistake.

Does anyone have any views on this? Has anyone had juices similar and it not hinder weight loss?

    Just my 2 cents, since I am new at this:

    I don't see what is wrong here - maybe I would leave the microwave part out if it were me, choosing to sit it in warm water instead perhaps. Just because the microwave/heating in general kills many of the enzymes and living properties of the veggies. But there is nothing 'wrong' with the ingredients at all. Just see how your body does with it and you will have your answer as to whether you should do it again or not. Sounds yummy!

    The "Red Hot Tomato" (as I believe it is called) is one of my favourites!! I usually can't find or be bothered buying chili peppers, so I use a squirt of sriracha.
    When I did my 60-day, this juice made an appearance every other day for most of the time and I lost 40½ pounds.... safe to say it won't hinder your loss. And I often made broth from the veggie pulp (celery, leafy greens, carrots, etc.) and ate it hot for those times when I felt I really wanted to e-a-t and again, weight loss was not hampered. As juicin' jill notes, you may lose some of the nutrition, but chances are you're getting heaps of nutrients from other juices to compensate for a bit of heating for this one :-)

    Thank you both that is good news. I was particularly worried about adding the cayenne pepper spice and also having too many tomatoes at once so that is particularly good news JuicyKrys that you were so successful with it. But I certainly take your point Juicin'Jill about killing all the nutrients by microwaving.

    JuicyKrys, it was thanks to you and a link to the recipe you posted I tried it! So thank you! Like you I am sure this will be a regular favourite.

    Glad to help :-)
    If you like it, try adding some basil. I had been growing my own this summer so I put some fresh in and used an immersion blender to mix it well, but I have also used a good pinch of dried basil and it tastes great too.

    Thank you JuicyKrys, will try the basil, I would imagine it would add more flavour. I wonder how it would taste with a little garlic as well. I lost half a pound this morning as normal so it did me no harm. Will definily be having this regularly.

    If you want to give the tomato mixture a Mexican slant, add lime juice, green onion, fresh cilantro, cumin, ground oregano and cayenne or ground ancho chili powder. Chili powder you buy at the store already has some of these ingredients. Best place to buy herbs and spices is myspicesage.com Inexpensive and have an awesome selection.

    I make a delicious V-8. You can Google V-8 juices, I came up with about 5 different ones and try them all. I use onion and garlic in them and top them off with either tabasco or cayenne pepper. The V-8 juice I usually make has about 9 different veggies in it. I usually drink two of these a day so I make four at a time, since I have all the veggies out.

    I think it sounds great! I agree maybe microwaving may not be the best- heat on the stove, but keep the temp low (under like 120 degrees), so it's warm, but still keeps it raw.
