I’ve been debating for a while about buying a masticating juicer. From what I’ve read, those are the best types of juicers because they extract the most juice from all types of fruits and veggies. John has a juicer that we use often, but when we put leafy greens in it – kale, spinach, etc. – nothing comes out. Like, seriously, nothing. And I want those green nutrients!
Winston-Salem doesn’t have any juice bars to buy fresh juice. (Well, except for a poorly named place called The Juice Bar that does not make or sell juice, only smoothies that are made with sherbet and crap.) There are juice options to buy at Whole Foods – like the Blue Print Cleanse juices – but they are pricey!
When doing the Conscious Cleanse I learned that juicing gets nutrients into your system faster than smoothies. I love my green smoothies but sometimes I get sick of the texture of smoothies so juice would be a nice alternative…as long as I can get my greens in it!
This info graphic was sent to me the other day and I really liked the section about the benefits of juicing at home, the cost savings, and the fact that you can store juice for up to a week. Soooo that kind of helps me justify it. What I think what I might do is set aside some money each month towards a juicer until I have enough to buy one. (You know I love my budgeting!)
What are your thoughts on juicing at home? Do you do it? What type of juicer do you have?

All opinions expressed in this post are my own. I really am considering buying a masticating juicer. Unless one of you would like to buy one for me. 😀
