|"2a"Before Using Your Juicer-Blender
• For best results, fresh juice needs to be consumed soon after the juicing process.
• Fresh juice is very concentrated and should be consumed slowly in small quantities.
• Certain fruits and vegetables, such as cabbage and beets, can be hard to digest. Mixing in carrots or other mild vegetables will help to ease the impact on the body.
Items that do not juice well are soft fruits such as mangos, papaya, apricots, bananas, plums…etc.
These items tend to clog the juicing filter and should be used for blending instead.
• When making blender drinks and recipes, add the liquid or softer items first, then add the harder foods on top.
• Always place the lid in position before operating.
• Blend until the desired consistency is reached, usually 15 to 30 seconds is all that is needed.
Cleaning and preparing produce.
Fruits and vegetables are often coated with pesticides. To rid produce of these toxins follow this simple procedure.
• Fill your kitchen sink with cold water.
• Add four tablespoons of sea salt along with the juice of a half of fresh lemon and stir.
• Place your produce in the sink and allow soaking for several minutes.
• Remove stones (plums, peaches, cherries, etc.)
• Remove tough skins (melons, pineapples, oranges, cucumber, etc.)
• Soft-skinned produce should always be washed with water (apples, carrots, radishes, lettuce, spinach, grapes, strawberries, etc.)
• Cut foods into small pieces to fit the food chute (about 1” square).
