I use my juicer every day. Generally I put 2 sticks of celery, a few carrots, and perhaps a beetroot into the juicer and let it rip. Then I add a spoon of flaxseed oil. A delicious drink. Sometimes instead of celery, a large green apple. Often I add a sprig of parsley or coriander. But you'll soon find a few little variations. Congrats on your new juicer, you'll get a lot from it. :)

Reading on www.thejuicemaster.com/tips.php?source=fifteen
In order to make sure that your veggie juice tastes wonderful every time just make sure to of your juice is made up of either apple, carrot or tomato juice, or a combination of these. So I went out and bought several cabages, peppers, melons, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, grapefruit, carrots, apples, oranges, tomatoes. I'm looking forward to getting juiced up, but will use the juicer as well as normal diet, not in replacement, and will ease my body in, I guess it won't like it if I suddenly start taking in more fruit and veg just like that.

I can't see myself juicing fruits like melons, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, grapefruit, as they are surely better eaten as they are. But just the thought of chomping through carrots, celery, and beetroot makes my jaws ache! Lovely juiced though.

Just trying out the new juicer, I had a three melon juice which was really refreshing, and yesterday I had a strawberry and blueberry juice. The strawberry gives the reddish red juice you'll ever see. I know what you mean about eating the fruits though eve. Tonight might be a cabbage and carrot or apple.

Made the mistake last night, of juicing peaches and grapefruit together. Sharp, almost cut myself. I'll maybe stick to the juice book receipes more than trial and error.

i made a great juice the other day which is apparently a 'Blue Ribbon' smoothie - bananas, blueberries, lemon or lime juice and a little bit of soya milk. i'm also looking forward to making 'Energy in a glass' - carrots, apples and ginger. :)

I also like beetroot, carrot and celery. I had one this morning as well as a wheatgrass shot. In Hawaii I had a 'salad' juice, which had everything in it like cucumber, carrot, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, spinach, watercress amongst other stuff. I have really gotten into the juice thing since Hawaii. So refreshing and healthy!!!!

Yesterday was a lettuce and apple juice day. The lettuce makes not a great deal of juice, but it is the darkest green.

i also read that children and beginners to juicing should dilute their juices a bit as suddenly taking in lots of unadulterated goodnes can be a shock to the system.

cedarblue, i've been juicing for a few weeks now, sometimes its a pint in the evening, sometimes two. If its two it would've been diluted with soya or pea milk. How would I know if i've been over doing it ? I have felt a wee bit tired the last few days, but that could be the very close weather and that I did little exercise last week.

I was just wondering, to all of you people who use a juicer, what do you do with your juice pulp? It seems a waste to chuck out all that nutrition, so I thought about mixing it into my doggy's dinner? Is this okay to do? If not, any other suggestions are welcome

Sometimes, if making a soup or even just cooking veges, I plonk it in, and with some herbs, it tastes fine. I'm sure your doggy doesn't object either.

You can take the pulp and create raw and dehydrated candies, loaves, breads and crackers! You can also add it to other foods that need "bulking up" and create veggie sauces, soups, gravies, and use it when cooking rice or other grains (throw it in the water). It can be used in baked loaves and breads as well!
