Juicing for Vitality


After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, my partner and I were inspired to get a juicer.  Due to budget restrictions, it took us some time to acquire one.  From what I understand, there are two factors to consider when buying a juicer: the pulp-to-juice ratio, and the longevity of the machine.  We seem to have found a fairly effective juicer (longevity to be determined) for about 100 bucks.

My first day juicing was yesterday.  I followed my juice intuition and created an apple-orange-lemon-ginger delight that hit the spot.  I took one sip and I swear, my eyes popped out of my head like a cartoon!  Any sense of self control was lost to me, and in a few short moments, my juice was gone, gulped down as though my life depended on it.  Clearly, my body needed those pure, fresh, nutrient-packed fruits.  If you get the chance, try it!
