View Full Version : Help with a scheduling problem...
08-13-2011, 11:23 AM
I have recently bought a juicer, Breveille Juice Fountiain Plus, and have been supplementing my diet. I typically eat well but I thought that juicing would be the next step in advancing my health.
The next step I want to take is a 10-15 day cleanse/fast, but I have a bit of a problem with getting the juice during the midmorning - early afternoon.
I work construction and wake up @ 3:45am. No problem juicing between then and when I leave for work. My issue is trying to figure out what to do between 6am (when work starts) and 4pm (when I get home).
Anyone have any suggestions, ideas or solutions to my predicament, or am I just screwed?

Uhhh, ever heard of a thermos?

Yes. Read a lot about the oxidation and that bacteria starts to appear after 20mins or so. That is my main concern...

if you have a kitchen at work and a locker then you can take the juicer and produce and juice at work.
If not then you either do as Revvell suggests or starve ... or take a watermelon and eat that during the day and then juice again when you get home.
Not sure about the value of frozen juice but maybe you could try freezing portions and taking those. Melted judiciously, without using heat, maybe that would be ok.

Yes. Read a lot about the oxidation and that bacteria starts to appear after 20mins or so. That is my main concern... Don't believe everything you read. A lot depends on your juicer; how much air gets in after bottling, etc. Many have and are doing it... with a thermos. :)

I had the same concerns as well. Thanks for posting.

I understand your concerns about oxidation and losing precious nutrition while fasting. If you can invest in a Green Star or other juicer of that quality, the juice can last up to a few days. Good luck and dont be discouraged.

Maybe take a really basic hand citrus juicer with you and do lemons, oranges, grapefruit, etc. I haven't tried it but I bet watermelon and other soft fruit would be easy enough to do in it if it's precut. Another idea is young coconut water.
