If you follow me on twitter, Facebook or Instagram, you will know I have gone CRAZY for juicing.
No, not pour juice from a store bought bottle. Making my own healthy juices from a juicing machine or juice extractor! I am addicted I tell you. I actually crave it. I am not sure if it’s my body telling me I need more nutrients or I am just in love with all of the flavor combinations I come up with.
I sent out an APB on twitter asking everyone about juicing and the types of juicers they used and the powers to be must have been listening because Hamilton Beach rocked my world when they sent me their newest Juice Extractor, The Big Mouth Juice Extractor.
When the package arrived, I squealed like a little pig(yes that is a reference to my weight) in excitement. The only thing I had to juice was some clementines.
There was no assembly required, I just had to take some tape off the machine and wash it.
I put a plastic garbage bag into the large clear pulp bin for easy clean up. I peeled the clementines ( you should always peel citrus before putting it in the juicer), and threw them in the HUGE food shoot and in like 3 seconds I had delicious juice.
Clean up took a few minutes. You have to scrub the blade/screen with a little brush that is provided for you. It’s quite easy. I place my juice in the fridge while I clean the machine. You want to make sure you clean it right away.
The next day I ran out to the store and bought lots and lots of fresh fruit and veggies.
I can up with a delicious “Green Juice” that tasted delicious and filled me up. And you know what, mentally it made me feel great because I knew what I just put in my body…..a massive amount of healthy food.
Juicing couldn’t be easier!
And Below is what went into my first juice.
- 1 green apple
- 2 whole romaine lettuce leaves
- 2 kale leaves
- 2 whole stalks celery
- large handful parsley, including stems
- large handful spinach
- ¼ lemon,peeled
- ½" piece of ginger
- ¼ English cucumber
- Place all of the items into the juicer one at a time and push down with the food plunger.
Now I suppose you want to start juicing too??
