    Well that's obviously because you aren't a manly man. Real men can eat absolute crap and still be all badass and stuff.

    According to diet pyramid the number of servings of each type of food we should strive for each day, such as six to 11 servings of grains, two to four servings of fruits, three to five servings of vegetables, and two to three servings of protein, such as meat, fish or eggs.

    I cut out 1/2 of my sugar by replacing 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1 Splenda and over a year that amounts to about 1 gallon of sugar. Plus each and every morning I juice...
    • 1 beet with green top
    • carrot
    • handful of spinach, kale and chard
    • cup of blueberries
    • grapefruit
    • small chunk of ginger
    • kiwi
    • apple
    • add a 1/4 teaspoon of tumeric
    • then add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
    Plus after a meal I'll drink 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water.

    Any other juicers out there?

    I started juicing about 3 years ago at the suggestion of a doc who told me my BP was creeping up. knocked it right back down with no medicine. My standard recipe is very close to yours except I stay away from fruits (reduces the sugar even more), with the exception of lemon. Lemon, I'm told by the internet and a couple docs, helps you to avoid kidney stones.

    Carrot
    Broccoli
    spinach
    kale
    ginger
    kiwi once in a while
    tomato
    beet
    cauliflower
    Lemon
    green/red pepper
    cucumber
    celery


    The chia seeds I take with yogurt. What can you extract from a chia seed? Are you juicing or blending? I use a masticating juicer that I don't believe would do much with a chia seed.

    I generally replace lunch with the Juice, get a little hungry by dinner but it's worth it.

    I was thinking about reducing some fruit as well. I got my BP down to 115 by juicing. One day I decided to add 1/2 a jalapeno to add a little spice.... Don't do that.

    I just mix the chia seeds in at the end.

    Today was my first attempt at making home made hummus. Next time I'm adding more garlic and less lemon juice. Always looking for a healthier option.

    I destroyed a blender doing that once. Sure was tasty though.

    I made green eggs and ham this morning. Darn it mayne, I should have taken a picture! I heard the greener the egg the healthier it is so mine was plenty plenty of green. I mixed it with spinach. I also left the ham out for a few days zipped up in zip lock bag until it turned green. The eggs were much better but I think next time I'm gonna add some salt to the ham before leaving it out. I found I had so much energy today; I attempted a barrel roll in a Beech 1900 C with a goat in a boat in the back cargo section. It was my first time. I didn't make it all the way around perfect though. Anyone here know what torque to use or should I feather both props first?
