As I kept reading about juicing and I think I did a proper “research” on it, I’d like to share with you (in case that you’re curious about it or wanted to try it, I hope it saves you sometimes)
Often, by cooking and processing foods, the sensitive micro-nutrients found in fresh foods are destroyed. By eating a diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables and getting the essential micro-nutrients needed in your diet, you can live a healthier, happier, more productive life and reduce the chances of getting many diseases.
Ideally, the body requires one pound of vegetables per 50 pounds of body weight. The problem is that eating raw fruit and vegetables in such large doses can be very difficult. By eating a lot of the same fruits or vegetables, you are not getting enough of a mixture of the fruits and vegetables needed. Having too much of the same food too often can also increase the chance of becoming allergic to it.
Another benefit of juicing is that it makes foods easier for us to digest, so nutrients can be used by the body quicker than if they were just eaten.
Juicing not only allows our bodies to have many more fruits and vegetables that it normally would on any given day, but eating them raw may increase our overall energy as well. By adding dark leafy greens to your juice you are adding chlorophyll to your diet, which natural detoxifies and may help purify and rebuild our blood cells, which in turn, may help remove cancerous cells.
Raw veggies contain a naturally high level of alkaline, which balances out the body and ensures it does not become overly acidic. Most common ailments that take place in the body are the result of an overly acidic environment. Thus, people that juice get sick less often!

Okay. Next step is to choose a juicer to begin this fun journey! I found is one the best “candidate” because it has good reviews, easy to use and affordable.
The Breville JE95XL juicer: operates with an incredible 850 watts of power. This powerful juicer is capable of juicing an eight ounce glass in only five seconds.The Breville Juicer has a two-speed electric control, an extra large chute for juicing whole vegetables and fruits and all of the parts are dishwasher safe except for the motor. The quality of the juicer is backed by a one-year warranty. The only thing the user has to do is wash the fruits and vegetables and then put them into the chute. This saves countless time. The only negative feedback anyone said was that when using large vegetables or fruit the juicer needs a few minutes of rest in-between. A product that is affordable, easy to use, easy to assembly, easy to clean-up and very powerful is at the top of everyone’s wish list.
I must say this chocolate flavor is my favorite !!! So chocolate!!!
Dinner was in the mission to “eliminate” veggies that I over-bought.
