About Vegetable JuiceFresh vegetable juice each day takes time to prepare. 20 minutes of my day; to wash, prep, and juice; then cleanup.
I suggest you start with a low cost juicer. I bought a JuiceMan Jr at Target for $60 and with care it's lasted several years now. I also have a hand driven extractor which I paid $80. Both work well. The hand driven extractor is quiet and produces more juice. Most local grocery store do have selection of organic vegetables. I always mix some color with the greens.
Typical vegetable selection for my juicer
- 5 or 6 carrots with tops
- small handful of parsley - about 10 shoots
- 1 broccoli head
- 2 collard green leaves with stem
That's about 2 8 oz glasses of juice, and is an example for 1 day.
I usually make my juice in the morning depending on my day. I drink a few glasses of water with the juice because I believe it gives better results. You have to urinate more frequently which is not always convenient. So, many days I juice for dinner at the end of the day. And some days I kip it. It should be a life style, juice is a food supplement. Better to keep it simple and easy, something you can continue without growing tired of it.
Manual juicer is better with expensive vegetables and fruits, as you get much more juice and less waste. A favorite with the manual juicer is start with 2/3 glass water, fill the rest with fresh grape juice from the manual juicer. I like using red grapes. Any fresh fruit produces good tasting juice.
