I haven't done this, but it seems to me that you could make a healthy no-salt V8 juice and use that as a base for a soup. And a non-tomato based version as well. I've only juiced beets and carrots in my juicer so far, but I know that you can juice onions and celery. I don't know how leek does in a juicer.

The most effective health-care is self-care.

Nutrition is the prescription.

You can literally stretch your lifespan by shrinking your waistline.

Nutrition and other lifestyle factors that you can choose are a more significant determinant of your health than genetics.

Does anyone here use a juicer to make concentrated veggie broth instead of cooking and straining the veggies?

It seems like it would be an efficient and effective thing to do...

I'm not trying to avoid nuts/seeds but since I eat greens at every meal I was just wondering if the supplement would do the trick for that meal. Sounds like the answer is yes.

I think one of the purposes of eating the nuts etc instead of a fat like oil is because they contribute other nutrients other than fat. If you aren't looking for more nutrients just help with absorption then..huh maybe. If it acts the same as normal fats then more than likely.

We are supposed to consume a small amount of fat, i.e. nuts/seeds, avocado, etc, with our greens to increase absorption of the nutrients in them. Does taking a fat containing supplement (my DHA+EPA) with the meal serve the same purpose?

That's the catch- acting as if, by treating yourself with respect.

I think that is where a lot of our "failure to be healthy" comes from. We say we have self respect but then we don't act like we do.

Sometimes I actually have to try to look at myself as if looking at a stranger and ask how I would treat that stranger.

Vikki, I have often been accused of "thinking too much". I made this thread because of that tendency. I just keep wondering about this and that.

I absolutely believe that I deserve the same respect that I give others. And in my older years I have become verbal about it.

When I met my current husband and we began to get serious I totally laid it out for him how I was, what I wanted, what I expected, what I was willing to give in return. I figured I would either scare him off or he would be worth keeping. Keep in mind, I was in my 40's by then and had matured and learned from some past mistakes. I think at first I kind of scared him, but he must have thought I was worth it because we have now been together 13 years, married 10. We occasionally have an issue come up, but we talk about it like mature adults. Of course there are sometimes compromises, but I NEVER compromise who I am or my core beliefs. Sometimes we agree to disagree - with mutual respect. That works for me.

That said, I still have one long time friend that I occasionally allow to treat me in a way that's not acceptable. I've had conversations with myself about it, discussed it with a life coach, still haven't figured it out. I think the friendship is ready to be retired, I'm just not quite ready to let it go. Not sure why.

Sometimes I hold others to a higher standard of how I am to be treated than I hold myself. There are times I need to treat myself better than I do.

I guess I haven't perfected the process!

Anne - you come up with the best questions! Thanks.

Do you believe that you (physically and emotionally) deserve the same respect that you would give someone else? Do you act like you believe you deserve it?

It took me a few decades to get around to asking myself this. It has made a big difference in my willingness to do what it takes to be healthy. Now if I could only perfect the process.

I got a juicer this past weekend for $30...not sure of the quality, and did no research, but I wasn't going to pay $90 for a machine I didn't think I'd use too much. I feel it will be beneficial to make some carrot juice for soups at the very least. It has a 700 watt motor, compared to another that wasn't on sale and was $40 with a 350 watt motor.

I got it from a kitchen store, and so far have only juiced a few carrots, which ended up tasting funny....not sure if that is because the machine was brand new...or if the machine just does that.

So I guess my point is...if you're looking for a cheap juicer check out the local kitchen store in the mall/shopping area...not sure if you have the same one or not. This juicer was originally 49.99 or something and their label said originally "89.99"...who knows tho!

Personally I think drinking smoothies is more beneficial than juicing. I have a juicer that has collected dust since I got my VitaMix. Actually it was collecting dust even before I got the VitaMix!

Something about drinking "the whole thing" seems more beneficial to me. I'm getting every tiny little nutrient that fruit or veggie has to offer.

Aha. I suspect I should have picked that up before somewhere, Mike, but I hadn't. Thank you!

I'm sure a few days without fiber won't hurt, but since I have no juicer I won't be having that experience.

I suppose that blending the same things would be better than nothing? Or is it pointless?

for one thing because the juice is removed from the fiber juice goes directly to the blood stream. with no fiber to digest it is a load from the body and aids in detoxing. I don't think a few days without fiber will hurt

I have some old plastic medium sized strainers. I also have one large plastic strainer that is broken from the handle to the side of the bottom. If I drain anything heavy (blueberries) some get squiched in the crack that forms. I would recommend not getting a broken one :). I also have two sizes of metal mesh type strainers. I like them better than the plastic, but small stuff really gets caught.

I don't really eat raw onion. I know they are healthy (even more so now that I've gone through the reading emoticon ) but I can't see myself eating that much raw.

If I could find an expandable, over the sink, stainless steel that had small holes rather than the mesh I would buy it in a heartbeat. The mesh is sometimes not easy to clean.

I don't groove on the mesh ones because I find it difficult to get all the bits out of the mesh, and rinsing the soap of afterward is a pain in the tushie.
All the same, I've got two of them, and used to have the hands-free-over-the-sink kind. I think I left it at my pal's house when I had to move in a hurry... Anyhow, check out the top chef sites- they use mesh strainers. They also have an army of people to do their dishes for them. :)

I recently got a stainless steel pierced type, and I'm very pleased with it.

We have the over-sink one like Wild4 -- it's great.

Also, for small stuff like berries, I picked up a little (plastic? maybe. or rubber) foldable strainer at Crate and Barrel (or the like) for a $1 recently. I love it. Has a foot for the bottom after you're done straining, so you can take it to another room without dripping.

Hi I use mostly a large mesh strainer, it works well I got a stainless steel colander and was very disappointed, it didn't drain well at all, I end up putting the mesh in side that if I want something with legs in the sink. don't use that often.

I like raw onions but don't eat a lot of them

I don't think I come close to a half cup. I keep chopped white onion and sliced red onion in the fridge and I put it pretty heavily in bean dishes and in wraps but a half cup is a lot of raw onion.

I have several colanders, but mostly use a green plastic one. It fits nicely in the dishwasher.

I didn't remember the onion. I have some raw onion every day, but not a half. Just a little on my salad unless I am doing something like roasting vegetables, then I use onion quarters

This isn't exactly mine but pretty close. I've had mine for years. The "arms" that fit on the sink expand to fit any size sink either side ways or length ways. I like it because it is totally hands free, you don't have to hold anything. It is up and out of the sink high enough nothing is sitting in the water that is draining off, the mesh is small enough to drain anything. It's big enough to drain a huge pot of pasta or beans.

The negative is that it's big to store. I have mine hanging on a hook on the inside of my pantry. It can also be difficult to wash out if you drain small stuff. I turn it upside down and spray it with the faucet. It is stainless steel so you can put it in the dishwasher, but again, it takes up lots of space.

I will sometimes set it down into the sink to wash veggies, then lift it up, expand the arms and let them drain.

I have a smaller hand held, stainless steel mesh strainer that I use for small things like a cup of quinoa or a can of beans. It can be set on a bowl if I need hands free.

I also have an old Tupperware collander that I still use. I'm not bringing any more plastic into my kitchen, but I have a hard time getting rid of things that are still useful.

I'm on a hunt for a large size colander that drains well, doesn't puddle in the bottom, enamel or stainless steel.
I've been evicting the plastic prep stuff from my kitchen and have found assorted stainless steel bowls at thrift shops but no colanders and I don't want to spend money on one and then find out it doesn't work well. I've been reading reviews on line but any feedback helps.
Thanks.

I hate raw onions, so no I don't eat that...bleh! Never knew Dr. Furhman recommended that.

I just have a regular stamped metal collander...and a mess one for small things like quinoa that will fall through the holes of the other one.

Sometimes I have questions and want feedback and opinions from other member's experiences. It may not be worth starting a thread for the question but I don't want it missed in random chatter either. This thread is my solution.
