View Full Version : AM juice all day
04-19-2010, 11:14 PM
So, now that I have my new juicer adn figured out how to take it apart and scrape it out and clean it, I can't see doing that more than one time a day.
So, I read that jucie starts getting not as good for you in minutes after juiced. So, it is feasible to make it in the morning and then take it for the day or make it the night before, freeze it in a water bottle and then drink it throughout the day.
Am I really getting not worth the nutrients if I drink it for a while during the day. I read that people add water to it and drink it all day.

Depends on the juicer. With a Champion, it's best to drink immediately after juicing. With Samson, Green Power and the like, one can drink throughout the day. Any other juicer, it's a toss up.
My suggestion ~ immediately after juicing, divide it in different bottles so each is filled to the top with no air. Only open the one you're going to drink all of at that time.
Personally, I don't freeze my juices. I don't care what people say ~ freezing does kill nutrients as does air. I'd juice in the a.m., and do above if it's feasible for you. If not, do what works for you. It's still better than purchasing and drinking bottled, homogenized stuff.

A champion juicer's juice will last for the day and the greenstar will last longer than a day. I do freeze my juices, I find it better than no juice at all :)
If you have a centrifugal juicer you need to consume it right away, no freezing or saving it for later. ;)

I have a hurom slow juicer. Many times I make fruit and veggie juice in the morning and put it in small jars for the day. Works well.
Agree with Revvell - put fresh juice in small containers, or drinking it right away is best, -- but do what works for you. Tis better than buying it in a carton/bottle from the store!:)

I have a centrifugal juicer that I want to get rid of - it's a pain to clean. I took a cooking class at a vegan/raw foods restaurant near my house and the chef recommended the Samson. He said he's been through a lot of juicers in his career and that the Samsons hold up the best and are the most versatile of all the ones he's tried. I am saving my pennies to get one some day. :)

i have the non-raw breville juicer and i love it! had to compromise some enzymes for the fact that i never touched my omega after awhile because it was such a hassle. my breville is so awesome and super easy to clean.
i usually make 2-3 quarts in the morning for the day. like revvell said, i put them in quart jars and fill them right to the top. no water added for me...just lovely yummy juice for the day!:)

Hmmm. not sure about specific terms to describe the juicer, but I have a Jack LaLanne Pro. The silver, chrome-y colored one. There is a white one that is about $50 cheaper and not as powerful. So, if you know the one, then you knwo better than I how to describe it.
As it is, I leave before 630 and get home about 6-7 at night, so it probably is not a big deal to do it again at night, but I know I can't get home during the day.
Once school gets out for the summer I can juice and clean 10 times a day, but now that is problematic. Hopefully by then I will solve it for school days.
Why are some juicers no-nos for saving and others no problem?
I must say I was surprised at how much actual liquid came out of the fruits and vegetables. I had way too much prepped to juice and not a big enough cup. Now I know! Thanks

What about if I use a blender and then strain the juice. It should be drank almost right away in that case, right?

jack la lane is centrifugal juicer. centrifugal juices begin to degrade within minutes. so the longer it sits the less nutrition and more 'sugar' you are drinking. pretty much no enzymes left at all.
the blender is different... you can (i believe) save those and drink them later on. i'm not 100% on that one though.
centrifugal juicers oxidize the juice... masticating and twin gears do not. makes a huge difference.

GOt it. I will check some other sources, as well. Thanks. I think I like the idea of blend and strain better more and more.
