This last Christmas I noticed a friend got a juicer since she was sharing pictures of her daily juices on Facebook. This really peaked my interest.
I am terrible at eating veggies and want to set a good example for Little Dude.
I also want to feel better and have more energy – which juicing claims to do.
So I started to do some research on juicing and checked out the book Juiceman’s Power of Juicing by Jay Kordich from the library.
I really enjoyed the story behind the book, learning the benefits of specific fruits and veggies and the recipes in the book. There’s even a section that helps you choose what to juice based of your current ailment.
The book was originally written before the big organic craze, so I was impressed with the Juiceman’s knowledge of how organics are so much better for you WAY before it became a buzzword.
Some may find that this is just another dieting craze, but I truly feel it is a lifestyle and mindset. Just like eating organic or buying from your local Farmer’s Market.
I wanted to get a “starter juicer.” There are fancy juicers out there that sell for $300, but I took the conservative approach and started to review consumer’s reactions for juicers less than $75.
The Waring JEX328 Pro Juice Extractor got 4/5 stars on Amazon, happened to be the same juicer my friend was using, and also got a good review in a recent food magazine I was thumbing through.
So that’s what I ordered! (It was around $50.)
