There is NOTHING better than a fresh glass of juice, especially when you know, all that is going into it.
We have been juicing now for 3yrs, although there was a slight break in that regiment due to my severe morning sickness.
The first juice we ever made was with Carrot, Apple and Ginger. The children LOVED it and so did we, so much so we seemed to be locked into that combination for quite some time, but thankfully we finally broke free from it and started trying new things. I think we were afraid if we put any GREENS in it, that it would be somewhat like drinking GRASS!!
Were we ever WRONG!!!
Not only did we add some more life and flavor to our Juicing but the added Health Benefits came right along with it.
Now, not all juicers are the same.
Our first juicer was the ever Popular Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer we used this one for probably a little over a year. It served it’s purpose but I had no clue that I wasn’t yielding the best quality and quantity of juice. The pulp would still be wet and if I squeezed it in my hand I could still get juice out of it. Most juicers run hot, in turn heating up the juice which causes beneficial Vitamins and Minerals to be lost that are coming from my fruits and Vegetables. Of course I had no idea at this time that if the juicer ran hot that it was harming the full benefits of our juice. But what we did know was that we wanted to begin to research more on Juicers and the power of juicing. I began finding that these BIG named commercial brands weren’t all that they were cracked up to be. We had even bough one of the Top of the line juicers from William Sonoma, only to return it that very day. ( It juiced terribly )
In my research I came across this GREAT youtube channel that was all about Juicers and Juicing. I was amazed at all the wonderful information and kind of in disbelief that this LITTLE machine could get the job done. Remember I had gone from these BIG and BULKY machines, of course BIGGER is better. RIGHT?
Well, not always.
After further research and asking LOTS and LOTS of questions we decided that this was the juicer for us.
This juicer doesn’t heat up, yields you a high amount of juice and your pulp is virtually dry.
We LOVE our Omega VRT Juicer and we LOVE the Health benefits that it brings.
After we had been juicing for our first year, I had my annual Eye Exam. My eyes have gradually been getting worse with each appt. and my Doctor was amazed because he said that my eyes had actually gotten better. He asked what I had been doing and at first I said to him, “Nothing”. Because I couldn’t think of anything off the charts Amazing in my life that I had done or changed, that would cause such a thing. And then it hit me!!
Doctor, I have been JUICING!!!!
So do you or have you been considering juicing?
There are so many wonderful combinations of fruits and vegetables that God has given us to enjoy and reap the healthy benefits from and juicing is a Wonderful way to get that done.
