    I need a schedueled chart in front of me to start. I have seriously conformed my surroundings, attitude, and house to be sucessful at juicing. I am wanting to start “rebooting” with JOE. But know I NEED, some sort of daily planner, or chart of activities and food intakes I scheduel ahead, I love to record and need a visual. I NEED this, do you offer any advice or product on my requests? I am lined up to seriously lose weight. I am 365 lbs. with no medical problems to attend to. And am very active physically, believe it or not. Please e-mail me. Ms.PeggyHarris

      At http://www.rebootwithjoe.com they have all the charts you need. Daily meal plan (food intake schedule), shopping list, and recipes. Look under the tab for “Rebooting” for the link to “plans”. There is a 3-day, 5-day, 10-day and a 15-day plan. Don’t think the 3-day or 5-day has everything I mentioned but the 15-day definitely does. I lost 35lbs in 21 days and felt great, really gave me a reboot! Helped get me off trygliceride medication. I recommend it to everyone! The 15-day weans you off solids to liquids, a lot of the solids recipes are worth doing regularly! There is so much on the daily schedules at times I didn’t eat everything scheduled. I was never hungry (or “hangry” for that matter). Drink plenty of water (we often mistake thirst for hunger). I must say it’s pretty easy. Prep your juices the night before, clean up is a breeze on the Breville Fountain Juicer, don’t have experience with any other. And there are things to do with the pulp if you do some research. Good luck in your weight loss goals!

    First, Ms. Peggy Harris, I love that you are so active and trying to formulate a real plan. I wish you the very best of luck! WS, like Peggy, I think more information would be helpful. Should I be substituting a meal with these drinks, or supplementing a meal? Thank you for any additional information!

    Love the series of recipes. However, think this would be a difficult time to start due to the cost of many of the fruits in the winter. More suggestions on how to manage this with the daily diet would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

      Forget the juicer. It removes the fiber and wastes it. They are a pain to clean. Buy the best Vitamix you can afford. It will change you and your family’s life. Simple, easy to clean and no waste. It also does a thousand other things in the kitchen. It changed our life. Seriously.

        You can save the pulp to use in muffins and smoothies. I’ve also seen people take the pulp and dehydrate it to make snacks for their kids. Those are some ideas for less waste from juicing.

    How many servings does each recipe make? It seems like a lot of ingredients for one drink (i.e. 2 pints blueberries, 2 pints blackberries and 3 pomengranates= 1 drink?)

    Hi- Can you explain this a little further? I love the idea and all the healthy juicing recipes but am a little confused. Are you saying this is all I should consume for 30 days? day 1: the juice of 2 pints blueberries, 2 pints blackberries, Seeds of 3 pomegranates and so on? Shouldnt there be some balance of protein?

    Can I use my vitamix to do the “juicing” if i don’t currently have a juicer?

    Hi Maya, each recipe serves one person, though volume amounts will vary based on the size of your ingredients. And you’re right — you’ll find that berries do not yield a large volume of juice, while larger fruits like pineapple do. Enjoy!

    Hi Anne,

    Our 30 recipes are designed to help you consume more nutrients from fruits and vegetables — starting with sweeter ingredients and slowly adopting earthier, nutrient-dense ones. They are not designed to replace your normal meal routine or to be used as a cleanse. Each juice serves one person (volume can vary based on the size of the ingredients juiced).

    That said, they’re all delicious and nutritious, so we hope you enjoy! You can drink the juices any time of day as a supplement to your normal meals, as breakfast, or however you like. They should simply be incorporated into your diet for more nutritional benefits.

    As for the Vitamix question, you can use your Vitamix to make smoothies, but not juices. Learn more about the difference here: http://blog.williams-sonoma.com/to-juice-or-to-blend/

    Best of luck!

    You can make juice with a blender like a Vitamix if you strain with something like a nut milk bag. I know a lot of people say that juicing removes all the fiber but it actually doesn’t. It’s mainly the insoluble fiber that gets removed (although even a small amount of it remains). A lot of the soluble fiber remains in the juice which helps to lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.

    I have both the Breville fast juicer and the Hurom slow juicer. I prefer the slow juicer and cannot even begin to describe the positive difference this made in my life.

    I also have the Vitamix blender and I prefer the juicer for making juice. I have a health condition and juicing made dramatic differences in my life. I have been telling everyone I know to buy a juicer and get started.

    I use my juicer to replace one meal.

    I’ve made it a natural part of my day because of the dramatic positive results.

    These recipes are great! I have a breville juicer and love it. Yes juicing takes a lot of fruits and veg but you’re loading your body with nutrients which make you lose weight and feel amazing.. How much do you spend at McDonalds for one meal? Put down the McRib combo with a large coke people and pick up a bunch of kale. Stop complaining produce costs too much. it doesnt. Look at how much you spend in garbage processed foods everyday and how much you spent at the doc in copays each year. There’s your juicing budget right there. You have priorities, mine is my health.. My junk food budget and my copays are both zero. Is your priority your health? Or does Pizza Hut win your last $20?

      Amen! Also–are there other areas of your budget you can cut back on? Can you bike to work and spend your gas money on good food? Can you switch from an iPhone to a cheap $20/month no contract phone? Can you get rid of cable and switch to Netflix? It’s interesting that in our culture people will drop $400 for an iPad (or however much they are) but don’t want to spend a little more for quality healthy food!

    I have a Vitamix and don’t really understand how you can put in a whole fruit (such as an apple or pear that have stems, skin, core). And the same goes for oranges with peel and seeds. Are you really able to eat those all together with kale. etc.?

    Reply
    1. Sabrina G

      As a professional Vitamix instructor, I can provide a simple viewpoint to address your questions.Apple skins are completely edible. Citrus skins (peels) are inedible and should not be use in juicing or blending. When we eat a whole fruit such as an apple or pear, we generally eat the skin as well and therefore it is completely safe to place in your Vitamix. “But what about the seeds” you ask…well the Vitamix is such a powerful machine that it will completely breakdown the seeds in to such fine particles that you would never guess the seeds have been blended as well. Citrus skins/peels are extremely bitter and will ruin your drink should you juice or blend them. Just peel those fruit because that is what you’d do if you were to simply eat them. It isn’t necessary to seed your citrus as the Vitamix will break down those seeds as well. Just add about 1 cup of water and a few ice cubes along with the fruit and you’ll get a really nice drink.

        I hear that apple seeds aren’t good for you, and that they are infact bad for you. I know it’s obviously small doses we are talking about in my daily drink, but is the accumulated amount at all something to be consernded about?

        1. Williams-Sonoma

          Hi Trev, apple seeds are said to contain small amounts of toxins; if you’re concerned about it, we recommend coring the apples before juicing.

      It is possible to juice using a blender, you just need something to separate pulp and juice. There are two methods that I know of – a nut milk bag or a fine strainer. Both will work the same.

      I’ve published a step by step instruction in my blog just in case anybody is interested
      http://www.juicingwithg.com/how-to-juice-without-a-juicer/

      This is a great way to get your taste buds acquainted to juice without having to spend a few hundred dollars for a masticating juicer.

    From what I understand all they are doing is showing you the different juices you can start your day with – not ONLY drink this every day! Juicing is a meal and most people probably don’t have the imagination to make different drinks. This is not a diet plan so i really don’t get why so many of you are confused.
    You can go on a juicing cleanse diet – please do it wisely, with the help of a plan!

    I’ve had blenders and juicers of all kinds but my latest and greatest new find is the NUTRIBULLET. The infomercial does not do it justice. Wash your fruits and veggies of choice and put them in with skin, seeds, steams (minus a few like apple seeds which are toxic when blended). You can add nuts if you like…even avacado for creaminest. Blend and enjoy…Super easy cleanup…you get ALL the nutrients. Bed, Bath & Beyond with a 20% coupon is the most reasonable price – $79.99. GREAT buy and wonderful mini appliance.

    Hi Anne and shoe gal, I have a correction on my earlier statement about juicing with your Vitamix. You can use your Vitamix to make “whole-food juices.” Whole-food juices are the combination of the juice and the fiber from whole fruits and vegetables prepared in the Vitamix machine. You can make extracted juice in the Vitamix machine by straining the whole-food juice through a filtration bag or fine mesh strainer.

    Hope this helps, and enjoy!

    I am actively considering buying a Breviile slow juicer in order to gain the nutritional value of what it can produce. But all the earlier recipes in the above list rely on expensive but sweet and tasty fruits. They all have lots of natural sugars in them with high carb values. Doesn’t this negate the value of these juices for weight loss dietary purposes? Almost like drinking OJ having dissolved various vitamin powders in it first. It woud be useful if these 30 juice recipes included their calorie counts.

    Reply
    1. Williams-Sonoma

      Hi Eric, yes, many fresh fruits are high in sugar, but they can be useful as people are introduced to juicing for the first time. The juices above are organized by color, but they also generally start out more sweet and fruity, and gradually become more vegetable-focused by the end of the 30 days. If you’re looking exclusively for lower-sugar vegetable juices, we recommend trying the green juices at the end.

      You could try using greens with apples + lemon, this combo based on my experience is good in negating bitterness from leafy greens. Another combo would be using lime + ginger. Lemon is great if you’re concerned about the sugar content because it has a low fructose level.

      Instead of using berries, try to use cheaper produce like lemon or lime as your sweetener to greens. These are way more affordable than berries.

      A good combo affordable starter combo would be
      3-apples
      3-stalks celery
      1-cucumber
      1-thumb ginger
      1-lime

      It’s the juice I had this morning and it should cost less than having strawberries or kiwi in your drink.
