I just got the Jack LaLanne juicer at Costco and it is amazing.
Very quiet, easy to clean, efficient and so easy! I thought it was for health freaks and made swamp water, but the juices are VERY tasty. Just throwing a few organic apples in there makes some AMAZING apple juice.
We got a bunch of fruits and veggies to juice and I thought we'd blow through them, but it is so efficient that it takes a few slices of melon, a carrot or two and some berries to make a glass of yummy goodness. The fruits and veggies are going quite a long way!
Jack LaLanne's Super Juice
1/2 pineapple spear (rind removed)
1 large orange (peeled)
1 papaya or mange (peeled, pitted, seeded)
2 large carrots (tops removed)
1/2 lime (peeled)
Just had pear/cherry/apple for a morning blast. Delicious! I used Rainier cherries, so good.
I've been doing the fruit juices in the morning and the veggie juices in the afternoon. It takes away the between-meal hunger so I eat way less snacks. Lost 4 Lbs the first week. :)
I got my ex a Breville juicer, I forget which model it was but it was the top one at the time (3 years ago) from Williams-Sonoma. It kicked ass and we got some good use out of it, especially during the summer. It did a great job of juicing but I also liked to add a little of the fiber/pulp back into the juice depending on what I was making.
Stopped at the Juice Pressery in Studio City on my way home last night and picked up four ~16oz bottles for 26 bucks.
Pressed Juicery - Juice Menu
My better half and I did about a week long juice fast earlier this year and we loved the results but the amount of work that went into making that much juice was just so incredibly tediuos. If the juice from this joint tastes ok, I'd say the price tag is totally worth it.
Forget Juicers, I'm all about the Magic Bullet smoothie maker. I use frozen bananas and Strawberries. Mix in some chocolate smoothie mix and 2 teaspons of Peanut Butter Powder. Makes a great breakfast for this monkey.
