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.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
