The last few years juicing has really become a thing! Crazy expensive juicers, million day long juice diets, and lots of cleanup! But they are just sooo good!
I was kind enough that a dear friend of mine lent me an old juicer that she was not using anymore back when I decided that I wanted to start making juices. People around me were doing 3,5,10,20 day juice cleanses so I was curious what it was all about! First, can I give a shout out to anyone that has the dedication to stick to a multi day juice cleanse. To be clear, this means juice only for that amount of days…not to mention if you are making it yourself, the amount of cleaning and pulp that includes!! Kudos!
So when I got my hands on this juicer I learned a few things: juicing involved way too much post juicing tidy up, of that I wasn’t a big fan. I also learned that you need a large haul of veggies and fruits in order to extract one mason jar full of liquid and it seemed to never turn out as nice looking as anyone else’s (perhaps the crazy expensive juicer has a purpose 🙂 ) . Lesson I learned? Self juicing, although I thoroughly enjoy the juice itself, was not for me.
