My Very First Juicing Experience!

A few weeks back, I finally watched a documentary that I had heard a lot about: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, where Joe Cross has us follow him on a journey to improve his overall health through a juicing diet for 90 days (while being monitored by a healthcare provider).  The documentary is amazing and inspirational! I definitely recommend watching it (you can currently watch it for free, using the link above).

After watching that documentary, I was set on getting myself a juicer and adding the fabulousness of green juices to my life. So, after a lot of research, I went for the Breville Juice Fountain Plus, and captured my VERY FIRST juicing experience below :].

I decided to make the “Mean Green Juice ” recipe from the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary, which contains:

Fruit and Veggies

  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1/2 a lemon (peeled – citrus peels can actually be pretty harsh on your stomach because of the essential oils they contain – to learn more click here)
  • 6-8 leaves of kale
  • 2 apples (I used Gala)
  • 1 tbspn of Ginger (I used about an inch of peeled ginger)


You can see that I have lined the pitcher that captures the pulp, I learned this trick from Elizabeth Rider’s video (she has a great blog as well :]) – saves time when washing!


This juice was delicious! And honestly, it is unbelievable how you literally get an instant boost of energy. It’s amazing :]  I am so excited to have added juicing to my life and will continue to share some new recipes as I experiment :]

In good health,
