Juicing my Way back to health and other solutions

Good morning,

I had my first problem with my Jack LaLanne’s Juicer this morning.  I was juicing my morning regime of lemons to make my Master Cleanse Drink and the motor stalled .   I turned it off immediately and took it apart.  The motor was actually smoking.  I checked the blade to make sure it was tightened down and it was.  After putting it back together and the motor continuted to  hum so I waited a few more minutes and this time it finished juicing the lemons.  One thing that has concerned me  is the  lemon peel is not ground up as it is on my old Juiceman.  Of course, I had to cut the lemon up into quarters to get it to go through in the old one.  I reread the directions and  LaLanne’s Juicer states that you can put in the whole lemon.  You can’t juice oranges and other similar types of fruit but lemons should be okay.  I plan on contacting customer service  and ask their advice.  It doesn’t take very much to burn out a motor.  I will let you know what they say. 

I finished juicing my vege drink for breakfast.  Carrot and celery juice.  I remember that when I was juicing before that I needed to keep things simple and not worry about making too many different kinds of juices but find a few that I like and that seem helpful to me and stick with them.  This is in keeping with one of my New Year’s resolutions – KEEP IT SIMPLE – Simplicty is the key word.  I have to check my blood sugars to make sure the carrot juice is not impacting my sugar levels.  If it does, I will have to find another morning drink.

Also, we are sticking to the type O blood  diet as closely as possible.  There are a few exceptions – we haven’t totally broken the potato habit yet.  And getting rid of corn products is also an issue.  Since we are gluten free corn starch, etc. are in a number of the products we are using as substituions to gluten.  We are making every effort to limit this as much as possible.  Otherwise, we are doing great.

We found a breakfast that is working well for us.  Rice Chex with organic rice milk, fruit for EH, and vege drink for me.  Hot tea or coffee (per blood type O diet should not be drinking coffee).  To be truthful, I can tell no difference in the way I feel but my sister (EH) tells me she can tell a big difference.

Yesterday, we went out to Applebees and had lunch.  Their small 7 oz. sirloin, chicken wings, smashed potatoes (No potatoes on Type O Blood Diet) and steamed broccoli.  When the wings came, we realized they were the boneless kind that had been rolled in flour first.  Definitely not gluten-free.  We both succumbed and ate some.  They were delicious but not anything we can order in the future.  Must remember to ask waiter about gluten items before we order.

My brother-in-law (Ben) from another sister, (Dor) told us he couldn’t see any point in doing without gluten if you were not gluten intolerant.  He said there were no health benefits that he could find.  EH feels she is allergic to wheat.  We are going to a lot of trouble for nothing if he is right.  If this Blood type O diet doesn’t work we should know in a few weeks.

More later…
