When I make a juice w my NutriBullet, I always feel fatigue after drinking it. I usually use a mixture of spring green, spinach, kiwi, berries, carrots,and chia seeds. All are organic and I mix and match quit often so there is never the same... (more)
I take supplement iron pills for breakfast and the only way (that I know and have used) is to drink it with a tiny box of juice, so I can't taste it. I have tried a few times to drink water, but I just don't like water in the morning (is that... (more)
I can't seem to find. Anything on google about this, only about water kefir and I dunno why? I'm trying to figure out how to get vitamin k2 without eating natto or supplements
I have a Breville Juice Fountain Plus. I want to switch to a Paleo diet starting tomorrow and I'm going to the grocery store today to buy some produce/meat/nuts/etc. I'm 15 years old and I'm 235 pounds and 5'10.. I'm pretty sure I have about... (more)
So I noticed when my parents are juicing apples for martinis etc, it leaves a lot of "pulp" lets call it in a hopper. I was thinking, would that pulp be the healthiest part of the fruit? For people on a low fruit diet, or simply low carb, and need... (more)
Hey everyone, I have been thinking about staring green juicing and I know there are mixed feelings on this in the paleo community. I have been paleo for about 6 months and don't plan on going back to the dark side. Over the past 18 months I have... (more)
Hi all, just curious as to what the difference of GREEN juice fasting (no fruits) versus fat fasting...? Would it provide the same fat loss results? I've heard great things about people doing juice fasts and keeping the weight off long term as... (more)
Hello PH, i was wondering if there is any nutritional data out there of fresh made vegetable juice? After 2 days of searching the internet i could not find anything of value. It seems like everyone is just saying it??s full of nutrients but no one... (more)
The nutritional value is going to depend upon what you put in it. If you add one tomato, one carrot, one onion, etc., the juice is going to contain the nutrients from those fruits and veg.
I know, I know, juice is processed food. But, first of all, it is minimally processed, and, most importantly, I am doing it to heal my gastritis - I went off PPI and I am trying out that cabbage juice theory. So, every time I drink cabbage juice,... (more)
Recently I have bought a juicer and today I have tried it out. I made a special blend - parsley, beet greens, arugula, spinach, ginger and 3 medium beets. All three cups were awfully bitter because of greens. I had a hard time finishing them. So... (more)
Well, not technically squeezed: I vitamixed (super blendered): 2 whole valen. oranges (just removed the orange outer part, but whole oranges went in the blender). 2 frozen banana, 3oz frozen blueberries. I added ice & water and blended... (more)
This is a topic I got into a few weeks ago, it's pretty cool. I gotta start with a comparison so the differences are pointed out. And well, I find it super neat: Juice from lemons and limes can sit for about 4 hours before the flavour begins to... (more)
So I have always loved juice but since starting paleo I haven't been able to drink it. I recently found knudsens which I used to drink anyway. It was fairly expensive so I was optimistic. When I turned the bottle of apple juice over to read the... (more)
I'm curious, who saves the water from steamed vegetables to drink later? When I steam either kale or collard greens, I tend to throw away the water below the collapsible steamer. I'm thinking, perhaps it's a good idea to save the greenish water... (more)
So I've been wondering are the "Green Machine" drinks by Naked Juice Paleo? From what I can tell, they're only fruit and veggie juice. I wasn't sure how "Paleo" these are, or if a home-made comparable drink would be. I'm mostly unsure, just... (more)
I have made many batches of sauerkraut before and all of them have turned out fine, but the batch I made about a day ago is a little gooey. I'm not sure if adding onion is the reason why, but this is the first time I'v done that. I know its still... (more)
Mine gets gooey sometimes, too, with the cabbage basically disintegrating. I attribute it to not enough salt. When it happens to me it can't be recovered. I wouldn't risk eating it.
Please only answer my question if you have constructive input (I know that NONE is the best answer. I know that it is bad for me. I know that there are better options). So if I am out with my friends and decide that I want a mixed drink (I dont... (more)
I'm seeing a lot of people go one way or the other on V8 vegetable juice, like the one in cans. Does anyone have any intake? On some paleo forms people are saying it's terrible, on other they're saying it's a great quick fix on the go. I'm new and... (more)
If V8 is your biggest concern, you're doing pretty well as a newbie! My advice is if you want vegetables in your diet, then eat them whole, not as juice with lots of salt and BPA. If you want something to drink that doesn't have lots of sugar,... (more)
Hi there, sauerkraut juice contains a lot of lactic acid, some salt and hopefully very dedicated bacteria strains. But whenever I drink a small cup of it, it punches my gut like it was fermented by chuck norris himself... Does the body... (more)
It's classic 'die-off' (read Herxheimer reaction) from dead yeast and bacterial cells as they pass through the body. You're just killing off some critters, and as they die they release endotoxins which can make you feel ill. The gut reacts with... (more)
Hi everyone. I am interested in clearing the old system out(without fasting as I am against the practice) and think that including lemon juice would be a good idea. what advisements would the paleo crowd have? Does it destroy health gut bacteria,... (more)
forgive me if i'm simplifying far too much... but being paleo / living in ketosis for much of each week (I'm a little relaxed on wkends w/healthy carbs (tubers))... i started wondering... Is a juice fast pointless - or counter-intuitive for... (more)
I have been trying to eat eggshells as a good way of getting more calcium into my diet, as well as lots of other minerals which eggshells are rich in. I have been thoroughly washing the shells, drying them, grinding them in a small processor sort... (more)
I don't, personally, but from what I hear, cowboys used to drop the eggshells in their coffee pots to extract the calcium into their morning coffee. Just something to consider; you don't necessarily have to consume them whole.
I see many people claiming benefits from consuming orange juice, so it seems like this Peat craze is really catching on. Anyways what have your experiences with it been? Have your triglycerides climbed, do you have more energy, did you gain... (more)
I do not. I love real oranges, yet I only have the real fruit, not the juice. I think having too much fructose is not good for your health, and orange juice has lots of fructose!
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
