The Beginning of Juicing Fruits & Veggies!

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.)

Thanks for posting this. I am going to get DH a juicer for his birthday. Being overseas he has been drinking a lot of crazy, but yummy sounding juices. I had no idea where to start, but I think this looks like a winner. Thank you!
