Growing up in a warm country, a prerequisite for a blistering hot day – about 10 months out of the year -was to pay a visit to the juice bar around the corner from our flat. The proprietor would stack the counters up with colorful pyramids of oranges, beets, mangoes, guavas and pomegranates, depending on what was in season. Vases filled with rods of sugar cane and long carrots anchored the artful arrangements to create an edible landscape. Once the juicers started to whir, the sweet scent of freshness would dance through the steamy streets, luring customers in like a pied piper. He’d create his own signature fruit and veggie ‘cocktails’, mixing beet with orange, carrot and mango, a soulful blend of sweet and savory. At a time when soda made it to our side of the globe, juicing was just pure refreshment.
Now, we know that fresh juice provides us with pure goodness in a glass. Some even believe it can transform your health, with celebrities and medical experts like Dr. Oz extolling the virtues of green drinks. Packed with live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, fresh juice also helps boost metabolism, fight infection, build tissue and strong bonesand help everything move along the way it’s supposed to, if you know what I mean.
Here’s 5 Reasons Why Juicing At Home Is a Savvy Thing.
-It’s alive! Most of the juice you purchase at the store has been heat pasteurized, which destroys bacteria along with many of the beneficial nutrients. Making it at home, you get the benefit of live enzymes that activate your digestion.
-The cleaner way to leaner. You get the best of F+V, including fiber and concentrated nutrients, while reaping the benefits of quick-release energy in a flash. This can make you feel fuller faster with few calories.
-You get your daily dose. Squeezing in your 5-9 a day in a glass is a cinch when you sip it.
-Kids love the action. Get them involved and introduce them to healthy eating habits.
-Saves you dough. At only about $ .40 a glass, you can’t beat that at any juice bar.
You’ll get your money’s worth out of a good quality juicer, or you can put your blender to work on easy-to-mix matchups, including fresh berries, citrus fruit, melons, tomatoes, cucumber, spinach and herbs. Apple, beet and celery with a dash of ginger are the perfect cool weather warmer while watermelon and carrot with a splash of mint makes a sweet, refreshing chiller on a hot day. If you’re diabetic or watching your sugar intake, kick up the veggie content. Strive for two 8-oz glasses each day and let your inner gourmet shine with countless combinations. Follow our chef’s tip and drink seasonal fruit and vegetable combinations to take advantage of the freshest produce at your local farmer’s market.

It was extremely difficult to keep the patient quiet; in fact, itwas impossible to do so. He would turn from side to side, andoften successfully prevail upon different members of the familyto place the weight in a chair, thereby giving the limb temporaryrest from extension. Notwithstanding the difficulties encoun-tered, by the 29th of June there appeared to be fairly good union,though the callous was large and was thought to be soft. At thistime an anesthetic was given and a plaster cast was applied to thelimb down to the knee, extension being made during the applica-tion of the cast. A few days later the boy turned over on hisstomach and otherwise threw himself about in bed. I found him FRACTURE OF THE FEMUR 543 with the cast slipped clown and the callus broken loose.
