Ay Juice Mio

22 Jan


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.

      Yes, it’s amazing what healthy nutrition and changes in what your body intakes can do for a person. I must check it out as well.

    Great post, I love the idea of a healthy juice rather than a ‘diet’ juice. We’ve been getting into that too. 🙂

      Thank you! And yes, diets don’t work for me, but when you have a healthy lifestyle and find a ‘balance’, you won’t really ever have to. If you have any good juice recipes you’d like to share, I’d love to hear about what juices you make.

    Props to you on such a clever little title (; I’ve yet to see the documentary, either! I’m not sure how I feel about juicing, but I oughtta give it a try considering all the health benefits. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to reading your future work!
