I recently purchased a new juicer, thanks Mom (gift card lol) and I’m so excited! Let me tell you…I’ve had my eye on a Breville Juicer for some time now. I mean REALLY had my eye on it, but it was kinda pricey. My previous juicer worked well to be under $30, (Black Friday sale), found here, and it gave me the opportunity to see how I liked juicing. After using it for over a year, I knew I wanted a bigger chute/feeder to make it easier to juice things. Before Christmas I was in Walmart and I ran across this TRU Juicer. I said if it’s still there the day after Christmas then I was going to get it. There were only 5 left when I went back. Thank God it was still on Rollback (saved me $20…woo hoo!). I Googled to see if I could find a review, I mean I looked everywhere — and I couldn’t find one…so I basically took a chance.
I absolutely LOVE this juicer! The feeding chute is extra wide and makes it much easier to juice larger quantities. I also get a great juice yield and clean up is easy. I even have this cute, little brush thing that helps out with those hard to reach crevices.
Here is one of my favorite POWER GREEN JUICE recipes:
- 1 apple
- 2-3 handfuls of spinach
- 1/2 lemon
- Thumb size of ginger (or more if you like)
- 1/2 cup of ice
Juicing has tons of great health benefits. You can add juicing into your diet (daily, weekly, etc). There are also those who participate in (temporary) juice fasts. I always recommend doing research first to see if this will work into your lifestyle, especially if you are considering a juice fast. If you have health-related questions regarding juicing, consult your doctor.
