Looking For Juicer/blender
0

8 posts in this topic

I am not sure if I am posting this in the right place but here it goes.  Due to recent other health issues that have come up I am really wanting to get more fruits and vegies in my diet.  I love to drink smoothies in the morning.  I was wondering if I could get some imput on what is the best juicer/blender out there for under $200.  I have seen the HealthMaster from Montel and that looks amazing, I know there is the Ninjia and Brevill but I just get more and more confused when I read the reviews.  I like the Healthmaster because you can put whole fruits and veggies and it has some liquid and there you go smoothie. Looks easy and not a bunch of parts. That is kind of what I am looking for but I also want something that is going to last.

Hi Chrissy, I don't know about the one you mentioned but I just bought a phillips hr1871 Avance (it was on offer from Jason Vale Juicemaster website). Its sturdy and easy to clean. Bear in mind juicers can't juice some veggies/fruit and you lose some of the fiber from juicing but still a good way of getting vitamins. I was warned from someone on here awhile back that a juicing detox can be hard on our/celiac guts... and they were right! :( So take it easy at first..you may find you're best steaming/boiling some veggies first, like kale and then juicing.

I also use my bullet blender for smoothies alot as its quick and you get the fibre too.

Edited to say.. I've just looked at the one you mentioned. Its more a blender and looks a good one :)

The bullet one you have - can it grind up frozen fruit for a smoothie?  My son would make them often if we didn't have to clean the big Kitchen Aid blender - which does a great job with frozen fruit.

I usually try all of the juicers for our culinary school in Hawaii. They all work a little different and have pros and cons but for basic juicing of fruit and veggies, and of the $100 ones like Jack Lalane, juiceman or beville from  Kmart/Walmart will work fine.  You'll have fun with it, especially  after tasting the juice from the skin of a pineapple!

Hi Karen, yes its good with ice and frozen fruit. Mines just a cheaper supermarket version as well but it works well and is so quick and easy to use and you drink from the tumblers which have lids so can take to work etc and hardly any cleaning! :) My mums got the Hinari model and she uses it daily.

yes..in a juicer not a blender. The pineapple skin is what really messed my guts up though and it didnt taste nice :( but I had a problem with kale too, so maybe its just me whos ultra sensitive because both ingredients are in juicing recipes.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
