Juicing 101

January 2013

As I tend to always do with my gourmet cooking classes; my goal is to help introduce healthy eating habits to our participants Larkin said.  Juicing will literally “reboot” your metabolism and if done consistently, will allow the body to do what it does best . . . heal itself.  There are countless studies and testimonials of people out there who juiced consistently over varying periods of time whose immune systems were repaired, blood pressure and cholesterol issues went away, Psoriasis cured . . . literally a plethora of examples of the body healing itself . . . and . . . throw in the side benefit of healthy weight loss . . . juicing is a win, win, win!  Of course, we always recommend that you consult your doctor before embarking on a full-on juice fast.

Many people have misconceptions about juicing.  But think of the vitamins and nutrients you can put into your body with juice;  One typical 16 ounce juice has about 4 carrots, 2 apples, a few stalks of celery and parsley which go into it.  There is no way that any of us could eat that many fruits and veggies to get all of those nutrients . . . and that is only one juice!   Think of it, if I wanted to try and “eat” the nutrients of three juices in one day . . . you just can’t do it!

We have been juice enthusiasts for several years.  But, those were difficult regimes to follow.  Then we watched the documentary: “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” which chronicles a 310 pound entrepreneur with a debilitating autoimmune disease on his 60 day juice fast/road trip/journey to miraculously better health and weight loss.  “The cool thing about the documentary is that it lays out very simple and flexible ways to juice yourself to health and “Reboot” your system. 
​“Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” is available free on line or Hulu or Netflicks to just name a few resources.

We actually make several different juices in the class and everyone gets to sample them.  Each juice with it’s own flavor and it’s own mission in your body . . . detoxing . . . skin health . . . healthy liver function and so on, depending on it’s specific mix of fruits and vegetables.  Need an accountability partner to help you get on the juicing track . . . count on us . . . we're here for you!
