You may have seen my previous posts about dieting and weight reduction, calorie counting etc. Dealing with my weight has always been an issue for me, for reasons that I will not get into because that’s simply a good deal of baggage you do not want to read about. I’m also pre-diabetic. My regular quarterly bloodstream tests and glucose levels, that i go to my doctor to check are good and I’m in the healthy range. Having said that, I’d say that my blood sugar tend to be on the high side, but right on the borderline of still okay. That’s been the situation for 2 or 3 3 years now, therefore i can’t complain.
For the most part, I eat normally and I enjoy my food. For any of you who follow me on instagram you’d see a lot of pictures of the food I post. I’ve not needed to cut out anything significantly from my diet, but I really do my far better do everything in moderation.
Plus unless you already know, I also write a cooking food blog called Daz in the Kitchen, and that means you just know I really like my food! Recently, because of some leftover fruit from a BBQ which I didn’t know what to do with, I juiced for the first time and I juiced it in the Thermomix.

Now, I’ve juiced in the past and using a juicer (I’ve wiped out one!) you get a complete great deal of pulp leftover that originates from the juicing process. Anyone who owns a juicer will know what I mean. Using the Thermomix, there is no leftover pulp and every it of the fruit is used up.
Nothing is wasted. I really like that. The Thermomix blends everything to an extremely fine pulp, with some added water becomes juice then. I am loving juicing in the Thermomix and after a few weeks of regular daily juicing, I am feeling healthier and my insides feel good. This can be TMI but heading to the toilet has been so much better too. I used to have to take fibre supplements on a daily basis but now, I’m feeling better with the juice I’m drinking even with no fibre supplements.
The big thing with juicing in the Thermomix is that there surely is no waste. You utilize up All of the fruit and vegetables. All the fibre and nutrition is maintained and consumed. I’ve been alternating between a red juice and a green juice. My red juices are beetroot (fabulous for detoxification) and red fruits, like red grapes, apples, nectarines, etc., but mainly whatever is within season and fresh. My green juices are spinach usually, kale or celery or any mixture of those, along with packham pears, green grapes or any other sugary and green fruits.
