So I have wanted to get Oscar Juicer for a long time now – after I found out that normal centrifuge juicers won’t preserve the enzymes of the vegetables. As I juice every day, I wanted to get all the possible goodness out of my juicing. And got the juicer for my birthday that was a few days ago – am so happy thank you dear Andrew my husband!! 🙂

This juicer not only retains living enzymes and extracts maximum vitamins but you can also make pasta, noodles, baby foods and nut butters with it! I have to start experiencing with it now.

The first juice I made (in the picture) was with ingredients that I found from  my fridge, and I always put everything I have in it to make it as healthy as possible 😀

This one had:

big bag of watercress

beetroot

carrots

ginger

appless

ice

It tasted very healthy but also very good! Watercress especially is good for you, it has significant amounts of iron, calcium and folic acid,  in addition to vitamins A and C. I also read that it is believed help to prevent lung cancer! (and lung cancer is the number 1 cancer for males in the UK, breast cancer for women) And as my husband still smokes, and it makes me worried, so more watercress will be added in my juices!

This is an amazing pie that I have wanted to share with you for a long time now. It is the first raw pie I have ever done, and I immediately fell in love with it! I have made it twice now, and this time to give to my friend who had a birthday yesterday, so could not take a picture of a sliced pie, just the whole pie. I found this recipe from a great blog I follow (in Finnish, but you can find better pictures of the pie from there, just scroll down the page).

Raw Cranberry Apple Pie

Base:

2dl* pecan

2 tablespoon liquid honey

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

salt

Crush the pecans with multi-purpose machine, add rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread the mass on the bottom of your pie dish, and put it in your fridge while you make the topping.

Filling:

2dl diced apple

2 tablespoon liquid honey

2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon grated ginger

2 dl cranberry (frozen or fresh)

2dl thinly sliced small apple cubes

5 tablespoons chia-seeds

Mince the sliced apples, honey, cinnamon and ginger in multi-purpose machine until smooth. Add the cranberries and mix a bit more but so that you leave some of the cranberries whole. Pour the mix in to a bowl. Add thinly sliced apples and chia-seeds. The chia-seeds will make the mix jelly like, and these seeds are also very healthy! Mix with spoon and pour on top of your base. Put the pie in to your fridge for couple of hours to let it recede. Then Enjoy!

* 1dl is 100ml

1 metric cup = 250 millilitres
