Ok so many of you asked what juicer I used at home since many people around want to try out juicing. Currently I have the Omega VSJ843R and I love this juicing machine. When I just started juicing, I was totally confused which juicer to use. I ended up buying 4 different units the past several months and finally ended up with the Omega model.
I should have read more reviews on juicing and saved me all the trouble and buying different juicers. If you are just starting out I would advice that you read and find out the best rated juicers for your needs. I recommend you go to www.juicermarket.com. This site does a great job explaining the different types of juicing machine and reviews on the different juicers available on the market.
What I particularly love about my current juicer is it’s simplicity of cleanup. I hate cleanup. Some juicers you spend more time cleaning up than actually enjoying your drink. The Omega VSJ843R is easy to assemble and disassemble with only a few parts to take apart.
I will tell you that this unit is over $400 so it is on the expensive side. When I started out I cheaped out and bought the inexpensive juicer and you know what they say “You get what you pay for”. Stick with the name brand such as Omega, Breville, or Hurom.
Also stick with a masticating juicer instead of a centrifugal juicer. Slow juicers are just more efficient in taking out juice and you get more nutrients using this type of machine. They are also significantly quieter than the other juicers.
If you are on a tight budget and can’t afford the higher end then I suggest you go for the Omega 8006. It is under $300 on Amazon. This unit has all the features that all higher end juicer has. It is certainly well built with a 15 year warranty. This unit is also easy to assemble and disassemble making cleanup quick and easy.
As far as recipes, I don’t follow any juicing recipes. I know some people like to combine fruits and vegetables. I certainly do that sometimes, but most of the time I just juice one fruit or vegetable. I keep it simple. I’ve never been good at finding the right combination that is to my liking. I suggest that you juice the fruits and vegetables that you normally eat. If you like eating it, more than likely you will like the taste of the juice.
One thing to keep in mind is that juicing does not replace your meal. Eat your regular meals (don’t pig out) and drink your juice. I guarantee you will feel more energized throughout the day. I know that is how Cheung and I feel. It is quite a time saver as you won’t need to cut or cook fruits or vegetables. So if you are a busy person, juicing is definitely for you.
Start today and go get a juicer machine. People tend to overcomplicate this process. You can easily add this routine to your daily diet.
