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!
4 red delicious apples – cored
1 navel orange – peeled
1 large lemon wedge
1/2 inch piece of ginger
*add to juicer starting with orange and lemon, then all but one or two pieces of apple, ginger, and finish with last few pieces of apple – stir and enjoy!*
