How to Eat Chayote

How to Eat Chayote

Today Mike Foster is going to show you how to eat chayote—chayote. This is called the vegetable pear. It’s not from the pear family.
It’s really from the gourd family, kind of cucumber-like. He is going to show you how to eat it. You can eat it raw. You can eat it savory. It’s got a little cucumber taste. It doesn’t taste like a pear really.

It’s a little slimier than any of those things he just mentioned.

It was originally from Mexico. It’s grown in warm-weather places like Costa Rica, and in fact, in Australia it’s called choco.

It’s high in fiber, vitamin C—vitamin B. It’s got really good properties that help lower your blood pressure, and they say it works to take care of kidney stones.

You could eat it several ways—raw, savory, and he is going to show you a couple of ways right now in the video.

How to Juice Fast by Juice Master Jason Vale

How to Juice Fast by Juice Master Jason Vale 

Watch the Video

When it comes to juicing, there’s one thing that’s more important than anything else, speed. You need to be able to do it fast. In fact, I get some calls sometimes saying I would juice, but it takes me 45 minutes to take a juice. I must admit I have no idea how it takes anybody that length of time even with a really tiny juice extractor. However, with a wide funnel we can make it in less than 10 minutes and clean the machine. I am going to show you the routine that you need to go through to make a juice in super-fast time.

First, you need to make sure you have all your ingredients. I am going to use numerous ingredients here, so we can see that even with lots of ingredients it still is going to made in super- fast time, so make sure that they’re ready to go into the chute, so you haven’t got to mess around. Make sure they are cut to size.

  • Two Apples
  • Piece of Lemon
  • Piece of Cucumber
  • Piece of Courgette
  • Piece of Broccoli
  • Stick of Celery
  • Knob of Ginger
  • Three Carrots
  • Half a Beetroot

Step two; before you start juicing make sure that you put a bag into the pulp container to make sure that the cleaning part of it becomes incredibly easy.

Then you want to fill the sink add a little bit of washing up liquid. You want to fill the sink to make sure that’s ready.

Start with an apple, and then add all the rest of the ingredients, followed by the second apple.
Push is all the way through. Let it run, and there’s your juice. Then pour it into a glass with some ice.

Now, here is the rule. When you’ve made your juice which is gorgeous, but you are not allowed to drink the juice until you finish cleaning the machine.

What you need to do is unhook it. Put the top section straight in the sink.

Notice, you are always going to have some pulp in this part of it. What you want to do is take out the pulp and put it into the bag. That’s the key and that goes straight into the sink as well,.

Then just take the rest apart and into the sink. Remove the plastic bag and into the bin with that, unless you want to use the pulp for something else.
What you need with most of the parts is just rinse,

Now, this is really the only part that really needs cleaning is this section here, but what we need to do is put an extra bit of washing up liquid, just on the back of the cutting blades, and then it comes with a little brush like this so just go around very slowly around here just making sure that it’s out.

It’s imperative that this part is clean because of course this acts like a filter system, and of course, this is like a sieve, and so you get more juice. What we do is just dry this off. Now this is the key to make sure if there’s any part or any bits of fruit and veg left in the filter system, you just get a tea towel, and your thumb and your finger, and you just go around once, all the way around, and you clean it off this section.

Now, don’t just leave it either on the draining board. If you’re in hurry, you can clearly just leave it on the draining board, but I always make sure that my juicer is primed and ready for next use. Just dry all the bits with a cloth and my juice ready to go, juicer’s ready, primed in position, and I’ve made that juice in super-fast time when you know what you’re doing, juicing really not a hassle at all. Keep it simple.

The Health Benefits of Ginger

An Article from our December Issue:

There’s a reason ginger has been used by traditional cultures around the globe for thousands of years as a medical treatment; its natural healing properties are extensive. Traditional cooking methods from many cultures also incorporate ginger for this same reason, though the spicy flavor of this versatile herb can’t be overlooked either. Not only does it bring robust bite to many recipes, but it also provides you with incredible health benefits in the process, and it doesn’t take much of this global favorite to accomplish either job.

Ginger contains protein, B vitamins, including folic acid and B2, as well as calcium, iron, manganese, silicon, and vitamin C, among other crucial nutrients. In addition to these nutritional components, fresh ginger also contains more than a dozen known antioxidants, which are substances that help fight and ward off disease.


The potential health benefits of consuming ginger are extensive. Here are just a few:

  • Ginger has a thinning effect in the blood stream, reducing the chances for developing blood clots and heart disease, as well as promoting the overall health of the cardiovascular system.
  •  The common cold is among the ailments for which ginger has been a traditional remedy. Not only does ginger help promote faster recovery from cold symptoms; it can also reduce many symptoms, including coughing, sore throat, chest and sinus congestion, and fever.
  •  Digestive upset, including indigestion, acid reflux, nausea, and vomiting, can also be treated with ginger, and this medicinal herb helps reduce the symptoms that come with even chronic digestive disorders.

Juicing with fresh ginger is easier than you may think. Here are just a couple of simple recipes to help you get started.


Apple, Carrot, Ginger Juice

  • 1/4 inch fresh ginger
  • 4 carrots, greens removed
  • 2 apples, seeds removed
