Meet George the Juicer...

This is my new Breville Juice Fountain Plus - I shall call him George ...
It came recommended by Aussie Joe Cross from Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Do yourself a favour and watch the trailer for his inspiring film and the testimonials. I am not contemplating a juice fast just yet, but can see the benefits of doing a 10 day fast. But I think I love my food just a bit too much at the moment...
RRP is $229 but it was on special in Target for $169

It has a wide chute for juicing whole fruit and vegetables (fits a large apple whole) ... but I learned that it is still best to cut into fruit to make sure nothing nasty is lurking inside...

This orange looked a bit 'woody', like the flesh had dried out...

This is what it looked like inside - yuck! I threw it away and got another one out.

This juicer extracts heaps more juice from the fruit than my old juicer (the pulp is so much drier). This is 1 apple, 1 orange, 2 carrots, 1/2 small raw beetroot and 2 sticks of celery with green tops on - and it made a good one and a half large glasses full. It is becoming part of our morning routine to juice and I will try and have just veggie juice when I get home from work each day. I need to be a bit careful of having too much fruit juice (the extra sugar won't help with my weight loss). It really is delicious!

This afternoon I tried silverbeet (chard/kale), celery, cucumber, carrot, beetroot and kiwi fruit (just for a bit of sweetness) - not as nice as the above mix but still drinkable and it has stopped me having any snacks until dinner time.

  2. I have a Breville juicer too and it is just great. It replaced my old Juice Lady brand and is far superior in every way. I never thought about cutting up fruit/veggies to make sure there was nothing bad inside - good point.

  3. George the Juicer...love the name! Some interesting combinations of fruit and veg there, I would never have thought to put those things together. Must be fun experimenting. Loved all your food photos in your previous post.
