Joys of Juicing

Happy juicer sitting at home on the counter.

A couple months ago I delved into juicing. Here is my review...

I absolutely love my juicer. I am new to juicing and read all of the reviews before selecting this model and I'm very happy with it.

The first week I got my juicer, I used it everyday juicing just about every vegetable and fruit in the refrigerator. Carrots, lettuce, celery, apples, potatoes and parsley! (Parsley if very green and bitter.) When you juice fibrous items like celery, it can build up a little in the tube, but that is what the brush tool is for.

My favorite juice is 2 pears, 1/4 cucumber, 1 sweet potato and 1 orange.

Cleaning is a snap. I run water through the juicer first to get all of the juice out, then I pop the top off and take it to the sink. It's easy to rinse the pieces with soapy water and it all fits in the drain board. (Be sure to use the brush on all of the pieces to get any residual fiber off.) I come back later and wipe off any excess water and the put it all back together to store. Very easy.

I even tried running frozen fruits and a frozen banana through it to make frozen smoothies. It was a little messy but fun to do and delicious!

With this juicer I can get an extra serving of organic fruits and veggies each day. Yeah!

JUICER UPDATE!  - March 2012
It's been a year and my juicer is going strong! I love how it's so easy to clean and gets all the juice out of the fruits and vegetables.   I really think this is the best value of a juicer that is out on the market.

Now I'm juicing with a purpose.   Not only does it make delicious drinks, but I'm learning how I get more nutrients from the food by juicing it and letting my body quickly absorb it.
Daily juices:
1. 2 oranges (removed peel)
2. 1 apple (remove seeds)/3 carrots
3. Green juice- a mix of 2 kale leafs, 2 leafs of rainbow chard, 1 piece of celery, and 1 apple (remove seeds) to cut the "green" taste. :)
