The Juicy Details

As part of the revamping of my life, due to my thyroid cancer diagnosis, I decided to start juicing. We watched a movie called Fat Sick and Nearly Dead (thanks, Sam, for the suggestion!) that helped spark this interest, in addition to trying some freshly made juice at a friend’s house, although I had already added a juicer to my Christmas wishlist before this. Well, we figured, there’s no time like the present, so we ordered a Breville juicer right then and there. So far, it seems that whatever combination of fruits and veggies we use for the juice, it always tastes good.

Here are some recommendations we’ve tried so far:
-oranges
-grapefruit
-carrots
-blueberries
-watermelon
-canteloupe
-apples
-plums
-mango
-peaches
-ginger
-kale
-parsley

But, we’ll continue to experiment, and try other items like:
-pears
-kiwis
-cilantro
-pineapple
-strawberries
-raspberries
-lemon

To use, follow the manual’s assembly instructions and be prepared for a bit of a mess. But I think it’s part of the fun, as long as you don’t get too many blueberry stains on your ceiling. Wash, peel (if applicable), and cut your fruit as appropriate, then push them through the shoot a little at a time. You can even leave a little bit of any orange peel on, as the peel is very healthy and contains compounds called polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) which lowers cholesterol without any side effects.

Voila! A fresh tasting nutritional drink full of antioxidants and other anti-cancer compounds!”
