Dr. Oz's Green Juice

This week Tom and I have started drinking Dr. Oz’s Green Juice. It is all natural and made with fresh ingredients. It is suppose to optimize your health and help you loose weight. We are trying it for a month to see.  I read of one woman loosing 54 lbs. and another loosing 127 lbs. I want to loose 50, so we shall see if it helps me do that.

Taste wise it is not bad. Tom was afraid it would taste like grass, but it does not taste or smell like grass. It has an interesting taste that is hard to describe, not bad, not sour or sweet, different and I like it.

Day one I made us each an 8 oz. glass. It was rather thick and more like a smoothie that you eat with a spoon.  I decided to modify the recipe slightly on day two.

Day two I added a little to much extra liquid (orange juice) and we ended up with three 16 oz. glasses, of which Tom drank one and I drank two. I also de-strung the celery so it was not so fibery.

Day three I de-strung part of the celery, and reduced the added liquid (orange juice) to get two 8 oz. glasses that were easy to drink as they were not super thick. I think I have adjusted the recipe to make it just right for the two of us, using about half of each ingredient.  A friend of Tom's, Alan, was here this morning and I gave him a small juice glass of Green Juice to try. He drank it and said it was not bad.  Not sure he would be game to drink it every morning for a month of not.

I am going to prepare the celery and other veggies today for tomorrow morning when we return to work so that it is quicker to mix the juice in the Vita Mix, instead of having to wash everything in the morning.

 I will let you know how the weight loss goes and if we feel healthier over the next month.
If you are interested in trying it yourself here is the link to Dr. Oz's site:

  1. I am not sure that I am brave enough to try that drink. I will give it some thought. Thanks for sharing and let us know how you feel.



This is a great way to explain things and how some days are for me when I over do or have too much on my plate and have to slow down. Thoug...
