Servings no vs ingredients

FAQ

Posted by Panda on 2 years ago

HEllo. I am from Ottawa. Finished a 30 days program and now....now what? I am keeping the 10 days program that combines juice and salads.


I was sick, tired, I cooked for my family all these days, including bacon, and I made it. If there is a will, there is a way.


I only have one question:


on 101 Juice recipes for 2 servings of Joe's Mean Grean you need the following:


— 1 cucumber — 4 ribs celery — 2 green apples — 8 leaves kale (Tuscan cabbage) — ½ lemon — 1" / 2.5cm ginger


then on the 10 day plan (lite) for Joe's mean Green, still 2 servings you need:


Ingredients: 16 kale leaves 2 cucumbers 8 celery sticks 4 apples 1 lemon 2-inch (5 cm) piece of fresh root ginger


have the tendency to believe the 10 Day Plan the quantities are wrong, and so are the nutritional values but need to confirm with someone...anyone ??


Thanks and God bless all !!

    Oh I would like to know this as well - maybe cross post in "ask the nutritionist?"

    I have printed out the 3 and 5 day reboot plans and they both have the one with 16 kale leaves (for 2 servings) and that is also the recipe here: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/mean-green-juice/

    so I think that one is more likely right (and that is the one I have made before I think).

    The serving size and nutritional information for the recipe is wrong. They updated the recipe a while ago, doubling the ingredients, but they did not update the nutritional information.

    That recipe will give you three or four servings of juice, for a total of about 700 calories.

    If you make three servings from it, each serving will be about 200 or more calories, depending on the size of your apples.

    Yes , I have posted there under the same title. Was told that it is nothing wrong, but still not convinced.

    In my opinion everything should be half sized for the ingredients in order to reflect the nutritional info.

    ....and yes, at the end will count the size of your apples too, but my rule is that every serving should be around 250 ml (8oz) just in case I have a bigger apple :-)))

    I posted a reply, and it vanished. Did the powers-that-be not like my disagreeing with their recipe?

    If you look at the ingredients, you can see there is no way that recipe will give you two servings of 125 calories each. It will in fact give you 500-700 calories total. At two servings, you are getting between 250 and 350 calories per serving.

    Having made Mean Green hundreds of times (yes, hundreds of times, I drank nothing but mean green for 30 days), I'm here to tell you that their recipe is going to give you 3-4 servings of 125-225 calories, not two servings.

    Well, it is their website, their recipe. I suppose they can say what they want, even if the numbers don't add up...

    Zootal - how big do you count a serving? I am new here but I typically get about 32 ounces from the recipes (i made the Green lemonade and the Sunrise and got that outcome) which was 16 ounces a serving. I realize it depends totally on the size of you various produce items. Before I got my juicer, I bought a few different juice cleanses and their servings were always 16-18 ounces. Is that your thinking? Thanks for the info!!!

    Also the mean green recipe I printed out says a serving is 251 calories which I assumed was about right (and that would be about 16-18 ounces)? Sound right to you (if I am reading your post correctly that sounds like what you are saying)? Maybe it was updated in some places and not others?
