Anybody have a juicer? Recipes?


Someone is giving us a Jack Lalanne juicer(not sure of the quality. I've read a bit of the health benefits but no very little about juicing. Thanks in advance,

two i make often.

1) apples, carrots, celery, parsley

2) pears, spinnich, beets, mint

really, add all the healthy stuff and one sweet fruit to balance the flavor and it will be good.

re: Anybody have a juicer? Recipes?


i have one.

got my JL juicer about 3 years ago.

I suggest getting a bunch of these:



because it takes some time to clean up after juicing, i usually make about a weeks worth at once and store it in these containers.

make only what you will drink in 5-7 days tho because any longer than that and the enzymes will start to break down and the texture is less than pleasant (pretty slimy)

While that seems like a great idea, don't the fruit and veggies separate fairly quickly making it a little gross?

naturally you are gonna want to shake it up before drinking.

the stuff i drink the day of is usually drank straight from the bowl.

It makes me poop fantastically.

I got a Jack Lalanne juicer a few years ago. I've used it about 4 times. It's a bitch to clean.

You should tell them to get you a margaritaville margarita maker instead. It's awesome.

Yeah no doubt

I have a pretty nice Breville that I'm thinking about bringing out the cabinets again and the only way I'll do it is to make more than one at once because of the clean up. frick the clean up

It makes a very concentrated fruit and veggie drink loaded with vitamins and minerals. That's all I got

I have that exact juicer. Works great.

I usually incorporate whatever I can find that's fresh. Carrots work fantastic, as do tomatoes and cucumbers. Sweet potatoes are a winner, and beets aren't for everyone, but I will juice them as well, and for fruit, cantaloupe strawberries, blueberries, pears, plum, mangos, papaya, pineapple all work amazing.

Been wanting to buy one, but keep hearing from people the same complaint re clean-up. Is there a make/model that's more clean-up friendly?

I also see people complain about the cleanup, but I've never had that problem. It takes all of 3 minutes to clean my Breville compact.

As for recipes, my normal breakfast juice is kale, grapefruit or orange, an apple, and a half cucumber. Sometimes I throw in some carrots or seasonal berries.

I don't really find it all that difficult to clean up. The biggest thing is the actual screen, but I find the easiest method is to just soak it, and then wipe it out and throw it in the dishwasher when you do the dishes so it doesn't harden up. The pulp tray is pretty simple, as is the rest of it. Just soap it and wipe it out and let it dry on the counter. The screen thingy is the only thing I run through the dishwasher, and I guess you could probably just do it all by hand if you want.

You get the nutrition of all the fruits and veggies without your stomach having to break it all down. It can immediately be absorbed by your stomach. You wouldn't be able to sit and consume those 10 pieces of fruit or veggies in a sitting. You do miss out on the fiber, but you'll get fiber from other food sources. Add chia seeds! Juicing gives you lots of energy and great digestion.

I just had grapefruit (which I've always hated but forcing myself to drink), orange, apple, celery and carrot. Honeydew and kale is good . I have apple carrot beet ginger and lemon, sometimes spinach, in the morning.

Eta I have a Breville 930XL or something like that. Less than 5 minutes for clean up. I clean the screen with a brush that came with the juicer. I would highly suggest getting one, it saves me more time than the sponge or dishwasher would.

About 4 carrots, one large sweet potato, and about one half inch slice of ginger. This is my favorite.

one half canteloupe and one half pineapple and one orange(make sure to peel).

A couple of green apples added to the green juices makes almost anything taste good.

Beets are really good but it is for masters only.

re: Anybody have a juicer? Recipes?


Don't have any recipes really. I pretty much just go with some things that work well.

Veg...

Carrots are perfect
Beets are great too, but I'm sure a lot of people have a mental block with it.
Tomatoes are also great
Broccoli is a winner
Cabbage is good in small amounts if you need to clean yourself out.



Fruit...

Anything goes for the most part, but my preferences are apples, pineapples, strawberries, pears, plums, mangos, peaches, grapes, blueberries, and melons.
