Junk Food

Question: What is the #1 reason people say they eat junk food?

Answer: A majority of Americans report that they eat more junk food than they should, either often (19%) or sometimes (36%). The biggest reason, people say, is convenience.

What a good supplement can transform you into

Our bootcamper Juliane was so entralled with energy after consuming Mochatonix that she decided to write a song/rap about it......want to hear it?...... here it goes......

Best Blender

The Vita-Mix 5200 blender is an amazing new kitchen appliance that everybody is talking about. The Vita-Mix 5200 is the only appliance that juices, makes ice cream, cooks soup, grinds grains, kneads bread dough and breaks open the cell walls of food to maximize the nutritional absorption of antioxidant rich whole foods. A 120 volt motor on the VitaMix 5200 blender uses a 2 peak horsepower motor with a variable speed dial for ultimate processing versatility.
It is a food processor and blender all in one. It basically does everything both a professional grade blender and food processor would do. Anything from baby food, to chopping vegetables.

*****Note***** This appliance is used by many professional chefs.

The BestJuicer

Obviously this is in my own opinion. My 1st juicer was the juiceman and then I graduated to my favorite. I actually debated for a Month between the Omega 8005 and the Breville. Here are specifications on the two from consumersearc.com:
OMEGA 8005
  • Single Gear "Masticating" Extraction
  • Low Rotation Speed of 80 RPMs. Powerful motor chews the plant fibers and penetrates membrane to extract vitamins, enzymes, and mineral content.
  • Continuous juicing with Automatic Pulp Ejection
  • High juice yield - very dry pulp
  • Single gear produces less foam than double gears
  • Includes 6 nozzle (end caps) to extrude pasta shapes.
  • No heat rise promotes a healthier juice
  • Heavy duty construction using the highest quality material
  • a single-auger, masticating juice extractor. It crushes produce to a pulp before squeezing out the juice. Reviews say this kind of extractor is very versatile. In addition to juice, it can make pasta, baby food and nut butters -- tasks that centrifugal juicers can't do.

Voted Best juicer overall based on Consumer search.

Breville 800 JEXL

  • The elegant Breville Juice Fountain Elite is the big winner in the two best juicer reviews we found. The Fountain Elite's advantages are its 1000-watt motor and extra wide, three-inch feeder tube, which means users can skip chopping food into smaller pieces. Reviews say the aluminum Juice Fountain Elite is efficient at squeezing the most juice from produce. With dishwasher-safe parts, it is easy to clean.
  • The average 8 oz glass of juice took over 3 minutes - the Juice Fountian does it in 5 seconds.
  • Harder fruits and vegetables, like apples and carrots, require more power for optimal results. For these items, the Juice Fountain Elite's high-speed delivers a crushing 13,000 RPM, approximately 3 times faster than most other machines.
  • Low-speed spins at a whisper quiet 6,500 rpms, which delivers the best results when juicing leafy vegetables, or softer fruits such as watermelon and orange.
Ok so I ended up picking the Breville!!!!! I love how my Breville looks and the taste, texture and quality of my juices. Cleanup is the #1 complaint with the juicers. You will have clean up with all of them but the more you juice, the faster you will get with clean up.

Honorable Mentions: Omega 8005 and Champion Juicers

The Best Portable Blender

I personally recommend this blender....below you will see what it says on their website personalblender.com.

The Tribest Personal Blender is the all-in-one, high-powered, smoothie-blending, coffee-grinding, sauce-making wonder with Blend-N-Serve cups for extreme convenience.

Just put your favorite ingredients in one of the Personal Blender’s single serving blending cups, screw on the blending assembly, and place it upside-down on the motor base. Press for pulse mode, or press and twist for continuous operation. Once you get it to that perfect consistency, just take off the blending assembly, and drink from the cup.

Not everyone likes the same ingredients in their smoothies or blended drinks, and it used to be a hassle to make everyone exactly what they wanted. You would have to stop and clean that clumsy blending jar every single time you switched recipes. The Personal Blender, by Tribest, eliminates that hassle. It comes with multiple Blend-N-Serve cups so you can enjoy your favorite recipe in your own cup, while making something else for a friend or a loved one in their own cup, without that extra cleaning step in between. Plus, each cup comes with its own lid for easy storage.

The Blend-N-Serve cups are made of tough polycarbonate, and are virtually unbreakable. They’re made from the same material as bullet-proof glass. The cups completely enclose the blending and grinding blades, keeping the blades away from probing hands and fingers. The advanced safety features built into the Personal Blender prevent operation when blades aren’t completely enclosed within the cup, making it impossible to come in contact with the spinning blades. An ordinary blender is nowhere near as safe.

Cleaning up is easy too. Just wash your cup and rinse the screw-on blade assembly, or just put the blending containers in your dishwasher. There’s no more bulky blending jar with its hard to reach blades and surfaces to clean, since everything is blended right in your own serving cup!

The powerful 200 watt motor allows you to blend everything from ice to frozen fruits. With the grinding assembly in the PB-200 model, you can grind coffee, nuts, grains, and even those feisty flax seeds. In under a minute, you can make your choice of hundreds of delicious and nutritious recipes. Blending and grinding have never been easier.

Do you settle?

We set goals easily and then settle because of the reasoning mind. Most people do not even feel guilty when they settle because they do it so often. Let's recognize when we settle and overcome it for good.
