Green Star Juicer

Finally, finally, finally…I’m now a proud owner of a Green Star Juicer! Yey!

I have surfed the net for the best juicer to invest on and found out that the best kind is the “grind and press” machine because they do not heat up. Apparently, when you get a centrifugal juicer, it generates heat and kills all the nutrients in your fruits and vegetables — so all your juicing efforts are useless. The most recommended brand by raw food enthusiasts and cancer patients is the Norwalk, the only juicer that is used by the Gerson Institute. I didn’t get to buy this juicer because it goes for a whooping $2000! So, I just bought the next best thing, again, as per raw food enthusiasts and cancer patients — the Green Star Juicer…and I love it!

I never thought that I’d get to drink raw celery, spinach, wheat grass, and broccoli…and not puke. But with my Green Star, I can mix these veggies with strawberries, kiwis, apples, carrots, and other fruits…and the mixture actually tastes great! Not yucky at all. Promise. :)

So maybe you’re wondering why I’m juicing? Well, it’s the yummiest and simplest way to get all the nutrients we need. Most days, I am guilty of not being able to follow the recommended serving of veggies and fruits that we need daily. A veggie lasagna is definitely more tempting than a bowl of fresh veggie salad, but the former is cooked and has less veggies in it; thus, less nutrients. Now that I am juicing, I can finish one tall glass of veggies and fruits without effort…it’s really delicious!

For those who live in Paris, I got mine from the health shop Pousse Pousse in the 9th arrondissement. It’s Green Star’s authorized distributor in France. The owner of that health shop, Madam Lawrence Aboucaya, is very kind and accommodating. I am actually excited to go back to her shop and sample her healthy cuisine. Oh, she sells fresh wheat grass, too! :)

Happy healthy living, everyone!

Hi, just found your very interesting blog. Hope all is well with you. Thanks for this info. I always steam my veggies very lightly. I know wheat grass is very nutritious but I can’t drink it straight. I am trying to enhance my fertility thru healthy living and sana mag ka baby na kami at kayo rin :-) I live in Saint cloud (Ile de France). Enjoy your stay here. Au revoir!

hi ysabel!

i’m sure that you and i will have a baby soon! our bodies have a way of healing itself, and with proper diet, we can bring it back to its top condition…plus, of course, with a lot of prayers. :) hey, try mixing wheat grass with carrots and apple; it tastes a lot better. also, eat more raw veggies by juicing. once you heat your veggies, you lose a lot of their nutrients. promise, masarap yung veggie juice basta haluan mo lang ng maraming fruits. update me how your juicing and baby-making go. we can get together sometime for hot chocolate if you like…mwah! :)

thanks for the tip on juicing, I will try it pag ka recover ko from my surgery on 29th May medyo malapit na(as usual infertility issues, my IVF specialist who is also my surgeon will get rid of my fibroids/myoma, then we’ll proceed with an IVF procedure, matanda na me medyo kailangan nang madaliin hehehe) and update kita. Sure, hope we can get together sometime soon at marami akong ma chichikka sa iyo. Meron nga pala na Paris Expo- Porte de Versailles from June 5 to 8 called “Le Salon de Bio et des plaisirs nature”(www.vivez-nature.com) and we received an invitation from them for free. If this interest you I can send this “free invitation card” to you. You can send your address to my e-mail acct. para ma mail ko sa iyo. Naku marami ka doon makikitang wheat grass ;-)

Thanks for the tip! Have been on the Gerson for 9 months now and heard about this juicer and that I can vacuum pack the juice and it can stay for up to 4 days with enzymes intact. Have you come across similar information? I love to travel but can’t because of my juicing requirements. But vacuum packing the juice seems like a good solution to this problem!

you’re welcome, ching! :)

nope, i haven’t heard of vacuum packing juices…but i think it can work! will try to read up on this more. my concern, though, is what packaging should we use? i’m worried about using plastic…i am trying to eliminate the use of plastic in our home due to ecological and health reasons.

Good day,
Could you please advise the address of Pousse Pousse. The only type of “healthy”juicer I can find in my country is Green Power, which I understand is older version of Green Star. Having in mind that I will visit Paris in September I am really looking forward to buy it there. Unfortunately I do not speak french and I could not find her address or email. How much was it? Thank you, Ludmila

@Ludmila – Hi Ludmila! Thank you for visiting my blog. Pousse Pousse is at 7 rue Notre Dame de Lorette here in Paris. They will be on summer break from July 31 – August 31, 2010. Since you plan to visit them on September, that won’t be a problem. I remember purchasing mine for 600€ back in 2009. I’m not sure how much they cost now.
