Reboot Juice – Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

Reboot Juice is shown in “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”.   It is a documentary you can watch on Netflix.  I came across it a year ago and features Joe Cross, an Australian writer, film maker and founder of Reboot with Joe. You can see the documentary’s trailer here.

The first time I ever tried a green vegetables juice was back in the 80’s.  I must confess I did not like it at all. However, Joe’s recipe is quite tasteful and I fell in love with the idea of having daily juices.

The Original Reboot Juice Recipe from Joe

Preparing 1 glass of reboot juice

1/2 lemon

1 piece of ginger (about 1-2 cm)

1/2 cucumber

2 celery stalks

2 kale leaves

1 apple

I recommend you to use a slow juicer to make your reboot juice. I have one from Hurom and I bought it in a shop close to my place. There are similar options available in amazon as well. The Hurom works just like a manual citrus juicer, but with more pressure. It gently squeezes the juice out of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. It does without damaging the vital nutrition, color, and flavor. No sharp edges, no whirring blades.

I cannot remember how much I paid for mine, but you can take a look at Fust. You can watch how my juicer works here. Note that the reboot juice comes out from one hole and the bagasse from the other. I actually reuse the bagasse and try some recipes like cookies and burgers.

Basically you can change the ingredients and choose the vegetables or fruits that suit your taste better. Of course you need to adapt your recipe accordingly depending on the season as well. Here I share one of my recipes:

Beetty  Juice – Recipe for 1 glass

1 beet

2 small carrots

1 piece of ginger

1 orange (peeled off)

1 portion of spinach

1 portion of celery leaves (when you run out of stalks)

1 apple

There are countless possibilities and combinations. Just make sure to use vegetables and fruits that contains lots of water. You don’t need to add any water to your juice.

My tip: leave a table spoon of chia seeds soaked in water for about 30 minutes and add to your juice once is ready. Chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to raise HDL cholesterol. HDL is the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke. Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.
