Looking For Juicer/blender

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 think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
