    Hello fellow juicing Canadians. Anyone here living in Toronto?



    I'm just in the early beginnings of juicing and wondering if someone could break down the cost you spend on a juice cleanse for a week.



    I want to do this. But I want to be smart about it as well. Toronto living is expensive, and more expensive with a family.

    Hi Magda! I'm an hour away. I will say it depends the route you go. I shopped at goodness me for a week and it cost $168 for a weeks worth of organic produce. With that comes the happy feeling of eating organic. Also i wouldnt recommend shopping for a week unless you do batch juicing which is just juicing all in one go and then freezing some as you need it throughout the week. If that sounds crazy to you, after you think about how much you spend eating out during the week on breakfasts, lunches and suppers. Or how much you are currently spending on food for the week for yourself in T dot. Plus add in the factor of if you feel like crap or not and then come up with an answer you can see if its affordable or not.

    Then there are the shortcuts. Where you go to a regular grocery store and stay away from the "Dirty Dozen"

    (buying those expressly organic as they contain the most pesticides) then that reduces the cost.

    Also farmer's markets or signing up for a CSA. Here is a link to Ontario CSAs. Then you can get fresh produce that way.

    Last resort you can go to a juice cafe...a REAL one that specializes in juices....they usually have a weekly "cleanse" package etc.... that you can purchase where they stock you up for the week.

    I hope this all was helpful. I'm on a guided reboot and been on it 18 days and I had recently figure out the hows to's as well.

    Hey Canucks. Way to go on the break in heat the last few days. I'm so grateful for it. I've discovered beets and that's awesome because beets are something we can get year round here. So juice on you quiet bunch you!

    Hello Canucks! Are you roasted to bits yet? Feels like Florida this weekend yeah? I hope you all have a fun Canada day with plenty of family, friends and relaxation and yes Juice! You can do it. I'm going "strapped" into my family day. So much juice I could drown an elephant. They wont get me with their darned BBQ smells. Peace, love and joy!

    I'm gonna experiment with freezing fresh fruit. I am limited on space as I have to share everything with my family. Wish I had a dedicated fridge just for my stuff but I guess I have to learn how to navigate in a world where I have to work within the majority. My family thinks all my juices taste "nasty" but its growing on me. Like organic ginger has a richer more "spicy" taste than the gigantic watery tasting ginger. I find the organic ginger has evened out the overpowering salty bite of celery. It was quite nice this evening. So I'm finding I'm able to distinguish flavours more and I can smell food a mile away. LOL. I have some avocado. I heard you can freeze it. I have to figure something out because they are ripe today and I know tomorrow they'll be dead.

    @ Shay, I wish you had your own fridge too. Grapes are my favorite fruit to freeze. Delicious. I have never put avocados in the freezer though. Let me know how that turns out. Can you just eat the ripe ones? You are very adventurous and have a great positive attitude. You will do very well juicing.

    Hi Everyone. I'm doing well. I added an extra transition week. We officially start Thursday but I am on day 6 of the first week. I'm doing ok. First couple of days was filled with screw up and wasted fruit. It seems buying organic produce during the entire week is a no no in the summer as it goes bad fast. So I lost some fruit that way. I'm off all animal products. I'm feeling great. I have found that knowing the health benefits of a veggie or fruit you dont like helps me be able to drink it. I'm like OMGah why so much celery??? but then I read up on celery and I'm like "Well hello celery. Fancy meeting you here?" lol

    Shay, I'm not in Canuck Rebooters (not from Canada) but I caught this post on "view all recent activity" and I gotta say I loved this take on ingredients!! Thanks! I have been seeing something, just a hint of the same idea. Really helps me to know more about some of the ingredients I was having trouble figuring out why anyone would juice them, so I'm motivated to find a way to take them in.

    Turmeric is - to me - SO bitter tasting. But I am finally loving it in the Tomato Salsa juice I'm making. Had to work at finding a non-sweet savoury juice and that's it. To balance the bitter, I add raw ACV. It works! In fact, I'm making 3 recipes of it this morning, 6 servings for 3 of us, spread over 3 days = 9 bottles to produce this morning. So everyone gets their dose of these goodies daily. Woot woot! :)

    Thanks for the perspective. Sorry you lost your fruits. Would it work to bring organic berries home and freeze them right away? Do you think?

    @ Creed1972, no need to worry about the feast to famine transition that occurs those first 3 days. Give yourself some rest time and I am confident you will do well. Juice on.
