What to juice?
These are all the ingredients I have on hand:
Pears, oranges, ginger, celery, beets, carrots, limes, some cherries, cranberries, some kumquats, a little parsley, little bit of mixed greens, and garlic. What are some juice combos I can make with this?
ive not juiced millions of different things , but a few i have :
oranges - limes together , oranges - cranberries together . basically for my tastes its always all fruits or all vegis i dont mix the two . like ide try the greens - celery - garlic together . carrots on own though prob add parsley to it . if have never read this beet juice fasts have cured many cancers , ecspecially used in europe . hows the new omega horizontal working ??????? that was juicer i wanted for several years from talking to 100's of rawfoodist on line but since the vert came out its become the top competition
I like it so far. It does fruit pretty good. I was under the impression it would do a bad job but not at all. I almost got the VRT but everywhere I looked I saw mixed reviews. The 8006/8004 had consistent high reviews.
Take some greens such as parsley or your mixed variety add it with a fruit such as orange or pear maybe add some beet or carrot. Goood stuff.
I prefer to make simple juices now, I try to keep the amount of items I use around four. But sometimes I just want more stuff in there. When I first got my juicer I would of put a little of everything I had in there. But it takes quite a while to make a juice with so many different ingredients.
Here's some combinations I would make with what you have.
Greens, celery, carrot, orange, ginger.
Greens, celery, ginger, beet, carrot, orange
Greens, pear, ginger, carrots
Greens, beet, carrots, orange
Stuff like that. I typically start with a green, then add something sweet.

Can you all imagine the abundant world we would live in if we all planted the seeds of every plant we ate. You wouldn't be able to throw a stone without hitting a fruit tree or berry bush or some fruit/vegetable bearing plant. Imagine the bees that would thrive in such an environment. I see a world.....................
I am gonna do cherries, pomegranate, and beets. I did cherries and beets already it was great. Now I am gonna add poms into it, but I can;t afford to spoil myself like this all the time. I did a few simple ones like apple-cranberry, and orange-carrot. I got a bunch of cukes, might do cukes, celery, and parsley. BTW, does anyone know if there is a risk drinking too much beet juice? I think I read somewhere that too much beets or the beet greens have some kind of acid in it that if we drink/eat too much it is bad. Anyone know something like this?
After researching for a few weeks, I decided to get the Breville BJE510XL. I purchased it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $199. But I used the 20% off coupon. (thank goodness)!! Today was my very 1st time juicing. I used 1 bag of carrots, 3 lg. granny smith apples, and 2 kiwi. And it was WONDERFUL!!! I will mix and match other combo's of fruits and veggies soon just to keep it interesting!!
That sounds like a great mix. Try ginger and it makes so much better. :)
Did you strain it, or leave the pulp in the drink?

Beet greens contain high levels of oxalic acid, which prevents the absorption of calcium and some other minerals; oxalic acid is neutralized by the body by binding it to these minerals, forming oxalates, which are then excreted through the urine. Oxalic acid is nothing to worry about as long as you don't eat massive quantities of beet greens, spinach, or other greens that contain large amounts of it. A varied diet that includes plenty of mineral rich foods, such as sprouted seeds and dark leafy greens, is plenty of protection from oxalic acid and other nutrient inhibitors.

If you have a problem with kidney stones, gout, or rheumatoid arthritis, you might want to go easy on foods high in oxalic acid, as it can aggravate these conditions; otherwise, its really nothing to worry about - in moderation, of course.
In respose to Oxalic Acid
I found a list of veggies that contain Oxalic acid and the content amounts.
Try cranberries and cherries. These was the best mixed juice. :)
