Juicing Books

Some of you may have already known, that I had a health scare recently and was motivated to start juicing for life and losing some weight. Well, the weight has not come off yet, I am still reluctant to give carbs altogether, but have given up on some sugar and most salt. There is a bottle of soy sauce that I still keep hidden in the house for sushi days and stuff.

Now I can't stop bragging enough about my Hurom 400, it's wonderful! I love it! It has made me consumed more raw vegetables and fruits juices in my lifetime. I love them, I am so addicted to beetroot juice but I have to stop at, just once a week. So in the between days, I drink other types of juices and hence my need for recipes.

So, I started getting interested in the juice recipe books. I bought two books recently from Book Depository in the UK. I love that their books are so much cheaper to buy than anywhere else online, and they have free shipping worldwide. It's genius! I bet they dominate the global market with this clever idea.

My review on this two books, well, it's not really a review, more of a personal opinion of my purchases.

The Jason Vale book is more for motivation and it's a program, whilst explaining about how your body works and why, which can be helpful. It includes only a handful of recipe which I find to be little disappointing. I actually like the second book I bought, Sandra Cabot's, which details health problems and follows up with a recipe to use for each of the problem. I am sure the Juice Master is good too, for all the motivation parts for the 14 day program but I still prefer recipes at this stage. So I am happy with this purchase. I recommend getting these books if you are interested in juicing.

This morning's green drink recipe which I threw together, because that's what I have on my juice bench : ) I forgot to put in my golden kiwis. But after juicing I figured that I have had enough fruits to sweeten my veg drink anyway. This morning I am following Popeye!

  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 pear
  • 1 stalk of Kale
  • 1 green apple
  • Bunch of spinach

Green apple, pear, pineapple, kale and spinach.

Hi Jackie
Sorry to hear about your health scare. It's inspiring to see you are making all these health drinks. Nice to see your posts on Facebook, I miss being able to reply.
One of these days, I also need to start making more juices, but pity my juicer machine isn't as good as yours.
Anyway, just thought I pop in to say
Hello to you.
