I took the plunge and bought a Green Star juicer. Just like fellow blogger Jim has. It was a spendy thing, that’s for sure. I did have an Omega juicer before, but it was a centrifugal juicer. I’m sorry I bought that one. Centrifugal means that the machine juiced by spinning around really fast and creating a high heat that oxidized the juice. That would force me to stand there and drink the juice immediately, so that I could get the most nutrients in as fast as I could, otherwise the air in the juice would dissipate the good stuff and render it just south of so-so in the nutrition department. So, I’d stand there gulping the juice while cleaning the machine and not really enjoying the whole process. Especially, since just shortly after I had bought it did I learn that it was the wrong type.
So, anyway, this Green Star machine is a masticating juicer. It processes by squishing and tearing and smooshing the produce to make the juice. It creates a minimal amount of heat. I can cut up enough veggies and fruit at one time to make leftovers and store in the refrigerator and still retain most of the nutrients. The instructions say I can store the juice up to 72 hours. That way I can have fresh organic juice everyday without having to spend so much time making it and cleaning the machine each time. I’m hoping I will follow through with my juicing efforts. I think I can make myself do it as long as I don’t have to mess with the process every day.
How are you doing with your vegetable and fruit intake? Let me know how you keep up with the recommended servings.
