HEALTHY LIVING: Juicing!

I spend far too much time on Netflix when I'm bored, but it has linked me to some fantastic documentaries. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead has to be one of my favourites. It follows a man who has a chronic illness and takes medication for it. He starts a juice diet for 30 days to see if the body can heal itself and he can get off the medication. He gets off the meds and loses a butt load of weight. So guess who decided to buy a juicer!




Isn't she beautiful?! I bought the one from Argos, it was on offer and you can check it out [HERE]. Its so simple to use, I did the typical thing of trying it without looking at the instructions. It's also easy to clean and even dishwasher safe.
I know a lot of bloggers and friends have tried the juice diet and complained about how ill and tired they feel during it. I've done my research, replacing food for juice isn't healthy at all! If you are going on a complete juice diet make sure you're having enough juice and ingredients in it to fill you up. Can't have you all light headed can we?!

Many juices have celery as a base. I hate celery, its bland and horrible but amazing in a juice. Carrots and apples are another staple in the juicing world.

Teddy and I have basically been making our own recipes and changing up some ones for our juices.  Here are some we have tried this week, can you tell I had fun naming them?!

Morning Blitz: 3 oranges, 1 grapefruit, 1/2 lime. This juice is packed with vitamin c which is great for your immune system. The anti-oxidant in oranges is good for clear complexions. Its also packed with energy to keep you awake til lunch!

Carrot Top: 3 carrots, 2 celery sticks, 2 apples. Apples are great for digestion, Carrots are filled with vitamin A which improves eyesight, and Celery is good for lowering blood pressure.

There's an Orange Up the Stairs!: 3 apples, 3 carrots, 2 pears. Pears are also good for lowering your blood pressure.

After just a week of having one juice a day I can already see changes. My eyes look whiter, my skin is clearer, I'm less tired and feel less bloated when I eat. I'm quite surprised by how quickly there was differences.

If you're thinking about juicing it recommend watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. He also has a book called 'Reboot with Joe Juice Diet' and you can buy that [here]. There are other documentaries I'd watch: Vegacated, Food Inc and Food Matters.


Next week, I'm continuing the juicing so I'll be having two juices a day. I've also started taking more exercises classes, so I shall be writing about that next week.

My healthyish fridge this week!

Has anyone tried juicing, or wants to? If so, how did you find it all?
