Love at first juice

Amazon delivered my Breville Juice Fountain yesterday and today Mr. Wonderful and I made our first juice. Last week we watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and wanted to give a juice fast a try before the holidays.

Let me first tell you how liberating making a juice is. The whole process feels good. The noise feels good. The drinking feels good. The murdering of innocent veggies, feels good!! Even the clean up even feels good! I know, I’m on some nutrient dense high or something but seriously. Good.

This first time was basically about figuring out of how to operate the thing which was surprisingly uncomplicated. Choosing the fruit/veg came via whatever was in the fridge so here is our attempt recipe:

  • 3 navel oranges
  • 3 bunches kale
  • 5 super mini apples
  • 1 C cranberries
  • 12 mini carrots

Juice ingredients one at a time, greens first. DRINK!

This made about 5- 16 ounce juices which is about a one person juice fast day.

  1. I’m so glad you love it! I purchased one of those nice high end blenders from Costco (Blendtec, not VitaMix) a few years ago and love making green smoothies. I couldn’t wrap my head around the juicer because I felt it wasted so much of the pulp and fibrous content of the fruits and veggies. But with those scraps goes a lot of calories, and I also hear the juice absorbs quickly on a pure cellular level better than blending whole ingredients. Either way is awesome I’m sure, Cheers!!


  2. One of my favorite movies – it inspired me to juice too!


  3. I love juicing. Dr. Oz has some great recipes I tried earlier this year. The combinations sound interesting but really taste great. Enjoy your fast!
