Now I do a 5 day juice cleanse once every two to three months and a ten day cleanse once a year. Each time I feel better and more energized moving forward. I think its a great way to clear out your system and get your mind and body back on track for a more fit lifestyle.
Great juicing (not blending) recipes here:
I like the Great Green Fruity Mix and the Mexican Jugo.
I just recently bought the Jack Lalane juicer, and so far I am loving it. The mock V8 juice recipe I found is pretty good, had it for breakfast the last 3 days. Not a bad investment for $90 at Costco.
Does not compare to a Vitamix, but for what I wanted to use it for, only juicing, it's been great.
Plain old carrot juice is surprisingly good too!
