Allo everyone... I bought a juicer yesterday after reading an article in a running magazine, and in the last week heard a few people reference FS&ND.. I just finished watching it and then started searching fro forums.
I'm so happy to find you all! I made juice earlier this morning. .. carrot.. beet, pear, apple.. it' s was fun mixing and matching.. but i'm sure happy to have all the recipes!!
I have a couple of questions:
1.In regards to the dirty dozen: for those that can't afford organic celery ect, do you feel the pesticides in celery has any effect? Do you notice them?
2. when using an avocado.. has anyone successfully found a way to keep the one half from browning?
3. Same question for juice: They say the longer you wait to drink your juice, the less powerful it is. I only intend to juice once a day.. either in the am or in the pm. Are there any tricks out there for preserving you juice throughout the day? Does any one freeze? or add lemon?
Finally a small bit of advice for the other newbs.. this morning when juicing, I felt some veggies didn't give much juice, and i knew there was a lot of roughage still in the basket of my machine (Lalande.. hope it's a good one...) so I tossed a tiny amount of water.. less than 1/4 c down the chute.. which kinda cleaned out any juice that was still in the spinner so to speak. I was also thinking that if the fibrous parts were re juiced, and then soaked in a bit of water then drained... you be really pulling all you could from your produce!!
Another thought: do you think it's okay to drink flavored perrier water?? I don't know how I'll live without carbonation.. I may end up getting a soda stream machine so I can carbonize my juices sometimes...
Starting stats: 5'4, 212 lbs at last weigh in. Mental state: low self esteem and completely ashamed of my body, where even if I could find a date.. I don't think I'd be able to take my clothes off in front of a partner.
The thought that I could loose 40lbs or more in 3 months is just astounding... how can you NOT try it.. especially when there's so many "food" recipes ( aka a solid juice !! :) ) you can use when you feel you just need the chew!??
