All was not lost, however. I may not be ready for an entirely healthy grown-in-the-earth diet, but I am ALL OVER JUICING. Seriously, I absolutely love it.
- The juice is (usually) delicious.
- You get SO many servings of fruits and vegetables (the juicer extracts 70% of nutrients from the fruits and veggies) in one glass of juice.
- It’s pretty fun to watch a pear become pear juice in under 2 seconds.
I bought the Breville Juice Fountain Compact BJE200XL (Note that it’s not actually compact, at all). I did some research on different types of juicers and the general consensus was that if you’re not going to spend upwards of $500 on a Vitamix (noooo, thank you), the Breville 200XL was the way to go. So far, I’ve been super happy with it. It has a wide spout, which means that I rarely have to cut my fruits and vegetables before juicing them. This is such a benefit in the morning before work. It’s also fairly easy to clean – takes me about 5 minutes post juicing. There are dozens of reviews on Amazon, which you can see here.
So that’s my juicing story. I love it. I’m converted. But I’m never going to be an herbivore.
