  • I read that a shot of fresh ginger juice will warm the body. I bought some last night and intend to try it tonight.
  • If I drink fresh-squeezed green juice within 24 hours I don't notice too much difference. I'll make 1.5 quarts a day, drink a glass after I make it and save the rest for the next two meals. It tastes better right after I make it. I notice a distinct…

  • I’d like to try this. I may start this morning since I’ve not made my daily GS yet. Here goes…..
  • I use the vitamix for my green smoothies. I haven’t used the juicer (Green Star) since I got the vitamix. However I will start to use the juicer for processing things like sprouted beans for hummus before putting them in the food processor.
  • It’s interesting but I’d rather freeze it than boil it or throw it away in the trash. I’m not sure how enzymes are affected by cold temperatures.
