Any way I love the way I have changed making my breakfast and lunch for work. The only problems I do have is when I make my drinks the day before. I do not have time to bother making my drinks the moment I am about to consume, so I know I may be losing some nutrients but it is not ideal to gather what you are going to put in the drink and the noise will wake up the whole neighborhood in the morning. So making my drinks the evening before going to work is the only way I go. I am a type of person who love eating vegetables. I can eat salads every day. But though eating the green stuff and getting the nutrients from them takes a lot of work from your body to break them down, so blending and or juicing is the way to go. Juicing is good if you want to get the nutrients that that the veggie will provide for you immediately. So when juicing you are not getting the fiber that helps cleanse your digestive system. And for those people who have problems digesting certain fibrous vegetables and fruit, juicing is best for them or taking a supplement. But for people who can and need to have fiber in their diet, I would suggest blending and juicing. V-8 juice is one of those products that is good and bad for. It is good because it does link if you cannot eat the recommended daily fruits and vegetable into your diet it is best to drink them. And it is bad for one thing, it is not fresh and it has a load of salt an additives. And the V-8 fruit fusion has the sugar. But it is good when you forgot to juice, or do not have time to juice. Just remember to get the low sodium non added sugar V-8.
You Can Learn A Lot on You Tube
I watch a lot of You Tube. It has a lot of good informational stuff and that is no BS. When I was looking for a good blender that when I took notice of my Ninja. It had a lot of good comments and a lot of bad comments. I was looking for an economical blender that could make my whole veggie and fruit drinks and a blender that I could use to grind up my nuts for my protein bars. And hands down the Ninja won me over. For one thing the price was great. If my Ninja breaks down in 6 months and I have had it now for about 3 months, I will have gotten my monies worth. The next blender will be a Hercules. It is as powerful as the Vitamix but 2 times less expensive, and it has a 2 tier serrated blades. I am working my way up to the Vitamix because it is American made, the warranty is unbelievable, and it is a Great Product. But it is expensive. One thing to keep in mind when blending your juice you do need to add water or you will have glue or not an easy drinkable liquid. Adding a little water is not bad and it help break down the fibrous vegetable plant. Also blending or juicing vegetable is best when vegetables are slightly frozen, especially green vegetables like broccoli, Kale and green beans. It is best to have a high RPM blender like the Vitamix, Ninja 1500, or the Hercules blender, but a good blender like the Nutri Bullet and the Ninja Professional 1100 works as well. I do find I have to blend the hard to break down vegetables like carrots and Kale with water before adding any other ingredients. The longer you blend with water or your own homemade juice the better.
Well juicing was the first way I was first introduced to doing when I was a child. It was fun but I hated to clean the juicer. I had received one when I was in my 20’s the Juiceman Jr. And I loved the juicer. It was very inexpensive and made a lot of juice. I had it for almost 10 years before I got rid of it. I was trying to downsize stuff I did not need at the time and my Juiceman Jr had to go. I wish now I did not depart form it, since now I had to buy another one. I shop on the net for new gadgets and it I got to have now I go to the store instead of buying ot online. Though, when you buy stuff on line you can get great discounts. Anyway I came upon a blender called the Bella. I read the reviews and also looked on You Tube to see if it was a good buy. Well at first I thought it was. When I first used it I did not juice much juice. It just ate up the fruit that should had yield a good amount of juice; like apples and celery. I had drops of juice; which was very disappointing. I bought the Centrifugal juicer at Target. A centrifugal does not compress or smashed the fruits or vegetables into juice like a cold press or a slow juicer. It grates and chops the fruit and vegetables to small pieces and through the left over pulp or waste into a solid ben and the juice is whirled around and separated through a metal fine sieve and comes out of a spout were the juice is collected in a glass or pitcher. A Centrifugal juicer is more economical, less expensive and faster than a slow juicer but the worst thing of this juicer is it does waste a lot of the pulp. Most of the pulp can be wet. Which some folks on You Tube will rejoice the pulp. I found that it takes too much time to recollect the pulp and rejoice. What I do is collect the pulp and place it in a freezer bag and freeze the pulp which is the fiber of the fruit and vegetable left after juicing. You can use the pulp for baking or for soups or use it to make you smoothies. Keep in mind use more liquid than pulp for it will make you smoothie very, very thick and goopy. Some folks on You Tube would breakdown the pulp in a blender and freeze the pulp in using an ice tray. Well after I took the Bella back I bought the Hamilton Big Mouth Juicer. Buy the juicer without the cup, it is the same model as the Hamilton Pro Big Mouth but it is over $10.00 less. Trust me. I should have bought the Regular Big Mouth and not the Pro. I bought mine at Walmart. This juicer is good for beginner, but it is load and does produce wet pulp. But you do get a whole lot more juice then some expensive centrifugal models. My next juicer when I can afford will be either a Breville model cost about $120-200 for a great one or if I buy a slow juicer I would rather spend a $500 on a good model. What society say is true, you get what you pay for.
