JuicyThursday, January 03, 2013
I ordered a juicer today, something I've been debating for ages.
I've contemplated juice cleanses many times. So healthy! So nutritious! It just seems like a really easy, convenient way to eat a crapton of fruits and veggies without having to resort to salads every day. I've seen a lot of recipes online for fresh juice that sounds delicious and read countless blog posts raving about the benefits of juicing.
The biggest con for me, aside from the cost, is the space it takes up. Will it just be another large kitchen gadget occupying precious real estate in the cupboard? Will I actually use it more than once, or will it sit idle for months at a time until I get another short-lived urge for a glass of juice?
I did some online research about making juice in our food processor, Magic Bullet, or blender, but apparently that just creates a frothy, foamy mess rather than pressing out the good juicy stuff.
Beyond the Rack had a sale on this bad boy, $130 marked down to $49.99, which sealed the deal for me:
It should be delivered in a couple weeks. Veggies and fruits, you better be trembling in fear right now because I'm going to be smashing the living daylights out of you. Also, ginger? I'm coming for you.
Feel free to share your juice recipes or any experiences with juice fasts, good or bad! I'll be scouring Pinterest looking for tasty juicy concoctions.
