Ay Juice Mio

Juice

Have you watched that documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead? I haven’t either, but I have heard of it. It is a film documenting a man who lost over 100 lbs in sixty days (OMG) and cured himself of an auto-immune disease by juicing. I’m not the dieting-type, but I am a healthy conscious-type and had also heard about the many benefits of drinking fruit and vegetable juices so over a year ago, this led me to purchase my Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor, which I use all of the time. This juicer is really high powered and I feel works as well as the juicers I see used at the Whole Foods Juice Bar. The other night, I made my boyfriend and I juice with Spinach, Romaine Lettuce, Broccoli, Carrots, Red Kale, Blueberries, and an apple (fruit always mutes the strong taste of kale). If I have a really heavy breakfast or lunch, come back from a workout or Bikram yoga class too late to have dinner, or don’t have time to make something to eat for breakfast, I will make a juice as a meal replacement. Thanks to mi amiga, who comes to my office to sell fruit and vegetables every week, I always have something fresh to juice and some one, who I can practice speaking Spanish with.
