Morning Juice Watermelon Carrot Apple recipe




$10 Off Your Order Over $150 At Live Superfoods, single use

Hi Again from Best of Health:

This morning I did my usual and put together a fresh juice. Looking  around in my fridge to see what was left in there to throw together.
I found a few different things that I thought would taste great together and they did!

MORNING JUICE RECIPE:

  • 2 Apples
  • 2 Oranges
  • 4 carrots
  • 1/4 of a Beet (Beetroot)
  • 1/4 of a Watermelon

I ran these through my Hurom Slow press juicer (Great little Juicer). The taste was once again amazing. Love it when my juice recipe comes together. Drinking fresh juice gives me an amazing lift in the morning. So get into your kitchen an try this one. Do a little experimenting for yourself, you might be amazed at what you come up with.

Review on the Hurom Slow Juicer:

 HU-100B IMPROVED HUROM JUICER, December 8, 2012
First, I love this juicer. The best juicer on the market is the one that you will use everyday and this is the one for me. It is the fastest to use because it is self feeding. This is a fantastic time saver. I can cut up the produce while the juicer does its work, reducing my juicing time in half. Try to do that with the Super Angel. The YouTube videos I have seen on the Super Angel show the wooden pusher getting quite a workout forcing produce into the twin screws. I haven’t taken the Hurom pusher out of the plastic bag yet. The clean-up is also easy and just as fast as with a single horizontal auger juicer. Please note that the parts are not dishwasher safe. Currently, there are at least three Hurom models on the market, namely the HU-100, HU-300 & HU-400. Functionally all three are the same. Differences are in the body, strainer and pin holder. The HU-100 is available in white, silver and black. I have seen a chrome model but it is difficult to get in the USA. The HU-100 has the latest improved strainer which is the black Ultem strainer. The Omega Vert still uses the amber Ultem strainer which is more likely to show stains after a lot of use. The HU-100 model is the only one with a handle. I like the handle because I need to move it around in our crowded kitchen. The HU-300 and HU-400 are slimmer but do not have the handle. The HU-300 and HU-400 are also equipped with the black Ultem strainer. The HU-100 and HU-300 models use twisting locking hooks that work just fine to lock the juicing bowl to the motor base. The $600.00 HU-400 uses a holder pin and three stubs on the top of the motor base instead of hooks. Although an improvement in design and a cleaner look, to me it is not worth the extra money. All three models now share the improved silicone bowl seal, larger pulp ejection port to reduce clogging and improved silicone plug that is attached to the juicing bowl. The juice catch cup and pulp container have also been improved. The 32 ounce plus juice container has a handle and the larger pulp container does not. The BPA-free juice container now fits inside the pulp bin to reduce storage space requirements. The materials are very high quality. The forward/off/reverse switch is covered by a clear plastic membrane for shock protection in case water from wet hands would enter the handle area. After juicing, it is a good idea to reverse the juicer for a second. The juice bowl separates easily with just a small counter clockwise rotation after this momentary reverse action. Also, the juice port has an added safety feature that prevents a finger from entering the rotating wiper section. An updated 80 page recipe book is included titled “100 Gourmet Recipes for the Slow Juicer” cookbook, a $14.99 value for free. A short instructional DVD names the parts and describes two different assembly methods as well as cleaning instructions and do’s and don’ts. Finally, the packaging has been improved to insure that the juicer is in perfect condition when you open the box. The market is now flooded with vertical slow juicers with all companies claiming patents on their particular juicer. Many of the units are made in the same Korean factory; avoid Chinese knockoffs. The reviews on these juicers are correct when they state that the juice contains more pulp than other style juicers. A good strainer with the double mesh is a must as well as a nice glass bowl with a pouring spout in which to strain the juice. Personally, I like the extra pulp in orange juice and tomato juice. Some juices need body and are not as desirable when they are watery. I plan to make almond milk and coconut milk as this model works quite well for these tasks. I waited almost three years before I bought this style of juicer because I knew improvements were needed in the original model. I highly recommend the HU-100B as the black housing look is outstanding. To our health, as a Nation!

Pineapple & Watermelon morning juice

Good morning again from Eat Well Look Fantastic

Another amazing start to my day, my 1 litre of water with fresh lemon juice first up to get me going. Great for the liver. Then took my dog for a 40 minute walk around the neighborhood, followed by making my morning juice. Today I mixed it up abit again, love to try different combo’s. Here is what I juiced:

  • 1 full pineapple
  • 1/4 of a watermelon
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 red apple
  • 1 carrot
  • hand full of baby organic spinach
  • slight drizzle of hemp seed oil into juicer

Yes you are seeing correctly, hemp seed oil. I only used a small amount drizzled into the juicer as I juiced. Might have only been about 5 ml. Didn’t want to overpower the flavours, as it can. Drinking the juice, you can just taste the hemp seed oil, not too strong. And yes, the juice combo worked and tasted great. Some of the benefits of Hemp Seed oil are:
