Hiya pals. Innit chuffin cold!!! Brrr and then some!
My juicer arrived yesterday. I`m impressed with the quality look, feel and size…not often we can say that eh? LOL!
me and bev went to Aldi to buy all the fresh fruit and veg. We got apples, oranges, pears, kiwis, a pineapple, lemon, limes, beetroot, celery, mangoes, carrots, peppers, sweet potatoes, nectarines, and it came to £22…not bad I thought.
My daughter had written out a menu for me, as she and her hubby had been on the detox for 9 days. They looked and felt much more energetic, and had lost weight. My lass has had digestive problems for years and said she hadnt felt so well for yonks. She was amazed at how sharp her vision has become!
So lunchtime…bev set to and tackled the new kitchen guest…we jumped as the juicer sprang into action, masticating each ingredient and spat out the juice. It seemed quite violent and I wouldnt want to argue with it!
She put in beetroot, sweet potato, 2 apples and half a lemon…huh! there was about 2 inches of liquid in the jug…then she scooped out the pulp and there was a lot of it and re-juiced it…not much more came out as liquid.
I tasted it…very fresh! I knew 2 inches wouldnt satisfy me…size does matter! So she added the remaining pulp to the juice and I needed a spoon to devour it! Bev then set about washing the machine parts…as with all new fangled kitchen gadgets, there were several bitty parts to clean and replace like summat out of Krypton Factor!!!
Then Bev got my tea sorted and we added more than the menu said…beetroot, 5 carrots, a red pepper, 2 oranges and a tomato. It smelt and looked good. Again we added the pulp.
So it`s in the fridge waiting for tea time.
Will we last the full 10 days? I`m hoping so.
Bev will be having an evening meal with her family, as her required energy levels are much higher than mine.
Anyone else given this a try?
I think it would be good for the 5;2 diet.
