I’m juicing bitches

I thought I had been doing well in watching what I eat and trying to get my 5 pieces of fruit and veg a day when it was pointed out to me that most vegetables I don’t even bloody eat.
         I had also looked in to various supplements but kind of got bored of that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
My aunties had just started a juice diet and had been singing brazes about it to me I looked at the thick funny coloured liquids they were drinking and thought nah that’s not for me.
That being said since I have been on prednisone I have been up very late at night and had seen the infomercials for The Bullet 

and thought that it looked a bit fun
After some more consideration I decided that I wanted to at least try out adding fresh juice to my diet.
Then I got a phone call from Auntie V..
Auntie V: I know what I am going to get you for a late birthday present
Me: A Bullet? (I had watch the infomercial the night before)
Auntie V: What … No.. I’m going to get you a blender but its not a Bullet
Me: Imma be juicing bitches!!

Monday I received my Morphy Richards Easy Blend

How Morphy Richards describe it:
Morphy Richards Easy Blend Blender 48415It's easy: you blend and drink from the same beaker so there's less washing up. It has 2 speeds and a pulse function to blend soft and hard fruit to your own taste. Just add fresh or frozen fruit, or any ingredients you like, some liquid and even ice (great for cocktails or for kids' slushies), blend, then pop on a sealed drink-through lid and your drink is ready to go. Includes two 795ml beakers and two drink-through lids.Blend - Add the drink through lid - Take away and enjoy!
300W
2 speeds, pulse and off
Pulse function
Ice crushing ability
2 x 28 oz measuring marked engraved cups with beaker lids
Easy to travel with and store
Stainless steel ice crushing blades
Easy to clean the base, blades and beaker
Dimensions(cm): Depth: 13.8 x Width: 11.5 x Height: 34cm
Colour: White

I found the machine simple enough to use and I liked the fact that it came with two cups with beaker lids however there could be a bit more grip as I have at times found it very hard to open and close.
I also like the Pulse setting which I didn’t realise was there until after my 1st try because god forbid I take the time to read the instructions.

My first Juice attempt consisted of:
Cucumber
Banana
Apple
Mango
I suppose I could work on my presentation
                                                                                                                                               
Because that’s what I had in the house lol! 

Must say that I really enjoyed it and it did fill me up until dinner.
I am optimistic that this will be a really good way to get some more iron in to my diet as green vegetables are the ones I detest the most.
I have added broccoli to my last few shakes and I don’t even notice the taste.
I even took some to work 
I have since ran out and brought a loads of fruits and vegetables so that I can try out loads of different combinations

Here are some benefits of juicing
Juicing can be enormously beneficial for health, and can also help you lose weight as part of a balanced diet plan.
It supercharges your nutrient intake by providing your body with pure micronutrients, vitamins and enzymes - with none of the bad stuff that constitutes processed food.
By putting the most nutritious fuel into your system possible, you can kick start your metabolism and give your body a break from all of the strange chemicals you've been challenging it to process until now.
