Hey all! I’ve been hearing a lot about juicing these days, so my mom and I finally made one the other day.
Dr. Ben Kim, a chiropractor and acupuncturist living and working in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, just sent out a newsletter last week addressing this. If you haven’t already heard of Dr. Ben Kim, I highly recommend checking out his website (click on his name above for the link) because he has a TON of great information to share!
Anyway, here’s the link to his Juice post:
I also saw a video on orange juice yesterday. It talks about how “Two-thirds of households buy orange juice in the U.S. and most don’t know that “fresh” juice that is not made from concentrate loses its flavor when stored and shipped in giant tanks. Juice companies then put flavor packs in the stored juice. These flavor packs have been engineered by flavor and perfume companies. It is not so much that this is bad for your health (I’m not sure if it is or not), the big issue is that you don’t really know what you are buying and you have a right to know. Your “fresh” orange juice is processed and flavored.”
Here it is if your interested:
So after all this talk about juice, I made my own:
My mom likes to call it “liquid gold” because it tastes sooooo good, and it is sooooo good for you!
I use Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer Deluxe. It works really well. The only reason why we chose this was because we knew Jack sold really good juicers, and Costco sold the Deluxe version for a discount!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Do you guys Juice? What are your favorite ingredients to put in your juices?
If you do juice, How does juicing make you feel, and why do you choose to juice?
I know I love juicing because it tastes good, I can feel my body feasting on the vitamins of the juice, and I feel energetic, too!
