  • Is it true that juices contain 1/3 of calories of whole fruit and veggies?

    Hi

    I read somewhere that the calorie count of juices is much lower than if we ate the whole fruit and veggies. Do you know if this is true? Am just curious.
    Many thanks.

  • Raw sweet potatoes - safe for everyone?

    I love root veggies but have heard that raw sweet potato for example can be toxic to certain people. What are your thoughts on this? I?m 70 years old, in good health and on full juice fast and would love to try the juices that include raw sweet potato or even raw parsnips but don?t want to get sick. Thank you for your advice.

  • Don't let the appearance of the juices put you off!

    I think the most off-putting thing is the look of the drinks. I vary the ingredients if I don't have everything in a recipe, using veggies and fruits that I do have. Yesterday my drink was 'sludge brown' yet tasted fantastic! What made it brown was I had red kale and red chard that I wanted to use up in a 'green' drink. Today my gazpacho is a deep purple as I didn't have a red pepper so used red cabbage. Have learned my lesson as appearance is so important!

    I made a much more pleasant-looking drink to get over those deep colours, here is the recipe:

    1 Red Grapefruit
    Baby Watermelon, about a quarter or third slice without skin
    1 Green Apple
    Half a 12oz bag of washed broccoli florets (about 6oz)

    The result is a beautiful-looking pale pink juice with the flavour of grapefuit and watermelon only, the broccoli cannot be tasted.

    Hope this is of help.

  • My eyesight is worse - 5 days on

    I went through detox symptoms on day one but have not felt too bad since (apart from hunger!) My eyesight has definitely deteriorated these past few days and I wonder how could this be? Have been juicing green and orange and yellow, lots of carrots and greens, so am hoping this is just temporary. Grateful for anyone's insight on this issue, many thanks.

  • Is organic vegetable broth permitted?

    I found low-sodium organic vegetable broth at Trader Joe's in California. It contains all organic vegetables with organic seasonings, thyme, parsley, etc. and is gluten-free. There is no mention of any hidden "flavorings". It tasted so wonderful I drank two cups. Is this permissable for occasional use as a treat just to make life a little easier?

    Okay, have tried the Breville JE98XL and Omega 8004, neither really work for me!
