I never knew that there was a such thing as juicing vegetables. Ever since I saw the movie "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead," I was really intrigued and decided to try it out. I've been juicing for the last 5 months now and I love it. I don't do this everyday, but I do try to make a drink at least 3 times a week. Now that I have an office job I'm more tempted to snack all day on those unhealthy sugar foods. I found that making a juice was the perfect solution to my afternoon munchies and sometimes a late night snack.
I started off small and stuck with mainly cucumbers and fruits. Now that I've acquired the taste for this healthy homemade drink I throw in kale, spinach and sometimes beets. The juicer I got was given to me from a friend that no longer used it. That saved me a pretty penny, but now I'm on the hunt for something bigger and better. The one I have has a small mouth and makes prep time a little long. I have to make sure I cut the pieces to fit the opening or else it'll just get stuck. The cleaning process is also a pain and takes forever to scrub away at the blades.
Do you juice or knows somebody that does? What are some of your favorite recipes and which juicer would you recommend?
