Aaaghh! My juicer's motor burned out!! 17 y
There are so many juicer models and price ranges to choose from. What brand do you recommend?
I was juicing grapes and apples this evening with my ancient Singer Juice Giant. All of the sudden I started to smell hot plastic, then the motor just up and died.
Grapes and apples whipped my juicer.
This puts me in mind of Dazzle’s computer crash - except it was my juicer that crashed.
What brand name juicer do you folks like? I didn’t like my Singer because I always felt like carrots were almost too much for it - it just didn’t have the muscle for it. I also left behind very wet pulp. And of course I couldn’t do wheatgrass (something I have never tasted let alone juiced).

Juice Fasting Preparation - my days leading up to starting 17 y
A "Slow Fast" is the best term to describe the weeks leading up to my 30-day JF."
I have been "Very Gently Detoxing", and eating Mindfully. I feel Light and Healthy. I adjusted my eating habits, read a variety of topics, both pro-juicing, and the skeptics. And meditated.
I haven’t written much lately, but have been reading a great deal of CZ blogs, and other sites in preparation for the 30-day Juice Fast.
February has been a pre-fast month. I prepared for the 30-day JF in several ways:
Caffeine withdrawal. Coffee consumption from 6-8 per day, down to 1-2 per day (with 1/2 & 1/2 and sugar). Feeling much better, had several days of dull headaches going on in the background for the three weeks before the start of the March 1st JF. The addition of juice to a “normal” diet is a great improvement. Again, I believe that I have been very gently detoxing ... read more
Want to join me in March 1st Juice Fast? 17 y
This is not meant as a competition in any way, just something we can do "together".
Its 8:20pm EST, past my bedtime...
Before I sign off for the night I wanted to put a question out there for the rest of you CZ fastees:
Starting today (Sunday Feb 12) I am prepping for a 30-day JF. I expect to be emotionally (I’m such a big baby!), and physically (nutritionally) ready to climb that mountain on March 1st.
Would anyone like to join in with me? I just thought a few of you might want to start with me on March 1st. We could journal together, compare notes on our progress and how we all feel each day, give emotional support to each other (I know, we do that already!).

Juicing and your work schedule 17 y
How I fit juicing into my work schedule.
*sigh* Maybe someday I will the Powerball Lottery and I won’t have to worry about such mundane things as Juicing -vs- Work Schedule. But until then...
Drinking freshly-made juice is the optimal way to get the most nutrition out of your juice. But how do you manage when you have to be at work early read more
Introduction to my Juice Fasting Blog 17 y
I have started this blog because I wanted a journal of my plans to conduct a 30 day juice fast. I want to "ramp up" to the actual juice fast, rather than just jump in with no mental or dietary preparation. I have found from past experience that jumping in unprepared is unwise in the long run because the lack of preparation actually sabotages my efforts.
Readers of this blog: (I hope to have readers!) Your insights and opinions are important to me! I appreciate it!
