Turkey Tracks: Juicing Joy

Juicing Joy

I’m still juicing.

In the spring I seem to juice about every day.

I juice in the morning and have a glass with breakfast, and I save the other glass for the late afternoon.

Juicing does not take long and the clean-up is quick, quick.

The first long drink from the fresh juice is…sublime.

Here’s how I start.  This combo will make a “red” drink:


Red cabbage, red and orange beets, red pepper, a blood orange, an apple, carrots, a piece of ginger, a piece of fresh tumeric root, and a lime.

Here are some videos of the process, but note that I was having trouble filming and juicing…




Someone asked me not long ago why not just eat all the veggies.  The answer, I hope you can see now, is that to get all these nutrients you would overload your body with way, way too much fiber.  Caution:  I usually only add ONE fruit to the veggies, usually an apple, as in “an apple a day….”  I just happened to have a blood orange in the refrigerator for this batch.  Too much fruit is so NOT a good thing to do at this level of juice.  It’s the veggie nutrients you want, not all the fruit sugar.  I alternate green drink and red drink days.  Basically I’m trying to “eat the rainbow.”

Here are today’s drinks:


I recently got “THE juice lady’s” book on juicing to see what I might also be adding to these drinks:


Calbom cured herself via juicing…

My juicer is an Omega VRT350 model.  It’s a “slow” juicer so will juice things like wheat grass, sprouts, and so forth.
