    โ€œThiss iss not juice: This iss drink.โ€

    ah, Sleeps, i see you’ve already discovered the problem,

    he may have been trying to help you,

    a juice is pure juice, usually reconstituted from a frozen concentrate,

    anything with the word ‘drink’ in the title can be just about anything, usually means loads of added sugar and water,

    i once bought some blackcurrant juice drink, and the ingredients showed there were no blackcurrants of any sort in it, just ‘flavour’.

    “my blog is all about women empowerment and women related issues. ”

    i wonder which newspaper she reads?

  4. Sleepychow says :

    Yes, I see the difference now, Emms.

    My hunt continues …

  5. emmachisset says :

    whatcha doing with the pommy juice Sleeps, drinking it, or cooking with it?

    bathing in it? nah, a litres not quite enough.

  6. Sleepychow says :

    The contents are 10% apple but no sign of an apple on the carton.

    Funny ole world.

  7. Paul says :

    She’s giving herself a vaginal douche with it Emma.

  8. Sleepychow says :

    Pom juice is a huge anti-cancer thingoid.
    I think it may be one of the super-foods which can actually shrink a lesion.

    Don’t quote me on this. I’m getting a few things wrong these days.

  9. Sleepychow says :


    Cheeky pants.

  10. Paul says :

    Still don’t know why Bru’s standing amongst all those bog roles at the top of the thread.

  11. Sleepychow says :

    *mutter mutter*

    some people

  12. emmachisset says :

    Tescos are canny,

    they advertise ‘Pomegranite Juice’ on the website, at just over a quid

    ingredients are ,

    “Water, Pomegranate Juice (32%), Apple Juice (13%), Aronia Juice (5%), Vitamin C, Sweetener (Sucralose), Flavouring”

    # Yeuch.

    Only by expanding the picture that comes with it, can you read the label which says,


  13. emmachisset says :

    Paul ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    100% pom juice, Sleeps:

    It’s expensive but I guess you’d have a glass a day.

  15. emmachisset says :

    apart from the specialist ‘health food’ type shops, Morrisons appears to be the next best bet,

    they do a 700ish ml bottle of pure for three and a half quid,

  16. Paul says :

    Sleeps,on a serious note brocolli is well known for it’s anti-cancer properties but make sure you steam it rather than boil it.If you haven’t got a steamer it’s really worth investing in one.They’re not that expensive.

  17. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Ha, snap, Emms, but Tesco’s 5p cheaper. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Vid here of how a pomegranate should be opened, it takes a min but there’s not all the bottom bashing necessarr:

  18. Paul says :

    Broccoli even.

  19. emmachisset says :

    on the food front,

    my usual lunchtime pot of humous tasted really bland today,

    eventually i notice the tiny little sticker on it saying Reduced Fat.

    Why can’t the slimmers just eat less of it, ? silly f’ers

    i’ve come close to accidentally buying gluten free stuff too, only noticing the label at the last minute,

    and several times i’ve accidentally bought sugar free stuff, which goes straight into the bin,

  20. emmachisset says :

    cool vid,

    Did you know ?

    that hand grenades and Grenadiers, are named after the pomegranate !

  21. Paul says :

    Slleps,there’s been some medical research which suggests that grapes are especially good for killing prostate cancer cells.

  22. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    I didn’t, Emms, but it makes sense. That’s one for Susie Dent. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. Paul says :

    Where’s that Chowperson gone ?

  24. justamentalpatient says :

    Grenadiers known for their courage because early grenades had a tendency to blow up early and grenadiers had to get fairly close to the enemy.

    The British Grenadier also known for bravery after John(?) Churchill led them to retake a position with fewer men than had originally been defending the position lost to the enemy.

  25. Paul says :

    You take care Mrs Chow and stay positive ๐Ÿ™‚

    nn x

  26. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Emms, on your “reduced fat humous” (btw, I would spell humous that way, Jamie Oliver – sorry Justa! – spells it hummus), whoever thought it was a good idea to reduce the fat, it’s tahini and extra virgin olive oil, both “good for you” and humous wouldn’t be humous without a good hugging of both of them.

    (I don’t like humous, it’s the chickpeas, I don’t like the texture.)

  27. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Sorry, not JO, he spells it “houmous”, it’s the BBC spells it hummus.

    I still don’t like it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Some cock nearby here is setting off fireworks. On a Monday night in March.

  29. emmachisset says :

    the G. is still chuntering on about that newsreader funny vid,

    – anyone who assumed the woman was the nanny is Racist, ( because the G. considers nannies to be sub human – well they are, working class, innit )

  30. justamentalpatient says :

    Probably celebrating the birthday of their goldfish, or summat, fiddy.

  31. emmachisset says :

    ooh i say, i got 900 red arrows today , on the Mail, for praising the royal family ๐Ÿ™‚

    some see the paper as being rabidly royalist, but they’re stranger than that..

  32. emmachisset says :

    what is it re the texture that you don’t like fifty? the sloppiness?

    not having a blender i just crush them crudely with a fork when i make it, gives it a different feel to it, much chunkier, but tastes fine.

  33. interiorbc says :

    Pomegranate juice sounds good…I don’t know if you lot can get cranberry juice (not drink) but it has lots of good vitamins.
    All brassicas good for anti cancer properties…all dark green leaf veg too.

    Blueberries also. They are very good straight out of the freezer at this time of year.

  34. interiorbc says : โ€บ Health and Fitness โ€บ Health

    “When we think of cranberry juice most of us automatically think urinary tract infections (UTIs). Glam, we know, but, you’ll be surprised to know …”

  35. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    I’m fine with sloppy, Emms, it’s the “coat your tongue and teeth” thing that chickpeas do. I love dips and we have a toaster at w**k so I could just slip a pitta in for a couple of mins, lunch done. If I liked humous.

  36. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Cranberry juice (proper juice) is widely available here, Inty, it was a “magic bullet” thing a few years ago.

  37. emmachisset says :

    ” itโ€™s the โ€œcoat your tongue and teethโ€ thing that chickpeas do.”

    is that not the tahini/sesame paste, rather than the chickpeas? It does have a funny kinda effect, a bit like custard powder ๐Ÿ™‚

    i like it, sometimes eat a spoonful from the tub as i’m passing by,

    for me, chickpeas themselves are more similar to beans in texture, just a bit firmer.

  38. emmachisset says :

    am watching The Last Kingdom, i forget who recc’ed it, looks promising so far.

    Vikings are nasty.

  39. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    That was me, Emms, I’ve watched series 1 twice, series 2 starts on BBC and Netflix this week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    The Saxons have their moments. Wait until you get to the Ubba battle, that’s all I’m saying.

  41. emmachisset says :

    i’m liking it so far, first episodes can be tricky, having to introduce the main characters, faster than they kill them off

  42. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Know what you mean, Emms, I’d say stick with it, by the end of ep 2 you’re sure who’s who and then new ones in ep 3 and it starts to get proper lively. Uhtred’s never sure who he is, it seems to me, which makes it all the more interesting. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  43. JamesFrance says :

    A little lately, that’s a grand picture, Bill ๐Ÿ™‚
    Bedtime !
