The best selection of juices comes in nature's own containers: fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh juice is loaded with cancer-fighting phytochemicals and vitamins, in a state easily absorbed by the body.
Did you know? 1 cup of carrot or celery juice provides most of the same nutrients found in 5 cups of those same vegetables chopped up.
To begin juicing, you'll need a juice extractor.
- For those who don't have one but looking to get one - there are so many versions sold at department stores from $20-$300.
- High tech features (such as the ability to process whole, uncut fruits) are worth the extra money if you are a frequent juicer. Otherwise, a basic model will do.
There are 2 types, citrus juicers and juice extractors.
- Extractors are more versatile; most have a pulp collector that pulls out the fiber (which is why you'll still want to consume whole fruits and vegetables).
- Look for a machine with components that are dishwasher safe or otherwise easy to clean.
Be sure to read through the information provided with your juicer to become familiar with how your equipment works as well as the recipes included. Be sure to thoroughly clean your juicer with hot soapy water after each use.
