So, despite wanting to run out and buy one ASAP, I made myself wait till the end of January, you know, just in case it was one of those hot minute fads I easily jump on.
But... last week finally came and I let myself bust out some Christmas cash and purchase a juicer...
I've used it twice since then and must admit, it's a lot easier to use than anticipated and the clean-up really is a cinch. It does however take up some precious counter space...
The manual suggested using a plastic bag to line the pulp container but instead I've been using the produce bags I get..a) they are smaller and b) they all fit nicely in the container when not in use... I also keep it already lined so that it's easier for me to use. Prepping the fruit and veggies is a bit much considering I already complain about the prep work for my weekly salads, but hopefully I can start doing it all at once..
So far I've juiced:
- Apples, Carrots and Celery: had a very overwhelming celery taste and as of now, I don't plan on making it again.
- Orange Pepper, Carrots and Grapefruit: was much more palatable. In my opinion it had a nice sweet taste.
Do you own a juicer?
Do you have a favorite juice recipe?
Everyone is recommending beets!
