Juicing In The Kitchen
Healthy Juicing Lifestyle
Juicing in the kitchen is something that I am very passionate about and something that I practice as well as preach, at least to anyone that will listen!
There really is no excuse not to juice, many would argue that juicers are too expensive, however you can juice with a manual juicer that our grandparents used years ago and still get all the benefits. It is much more convenient to have a nice juicer but if being healthy is more important to you the manual route can get you started.
Another common argument is juicing is too complicated or hard; it is a lot easier than you may think, the simple act of squeezing a lemon slice in your glass of water is juicing, it is not rocket science or that complicated unless you make it so. Ideally it is wise to start slow just a few items at a time and work your way up to the more complex recipes. There are numerous videos and books for beginners some I have featured here to help you.
Helping you with your juicing journey is why I created this lens so I hope it helps you start your healthy juicing lifestyle!
Juicing Online Store
There are numerous brands of juicers, because juicing has become popular the major manufacturers have jumped on board with their models as to not be left behind in the marketplace. I have listed several here that got excellent reviews and different price ranges.
You need to consider your needs, your budget and then select which model makes the most sense to you.

Good Beginner Juicing Recipes Ideas
If you are just starting out the ideal approach (if you do not want to fast first) is to start nice and simple.
Start with a simple juice of apple and carrot, it is easy to prepare and has an excellent flavor, use a half of an apple and two carrots.
Remember the greener the leaf the more powerful the effect or benefit however your stomach needs to make the adjustment, it is not wise to juice heavy greens like kale, collard greens etc without mixing it up with some apple or carrot.
Another great equalizer is the lemon, it will help offset any harsh taste.

Manual Juice Extractors
If you want to ease into juicing without the high cost of a high quality juicer then using a manual citrus juicer is an excellent approach, juicing fruit first is enjoyable and you can start with breakfast and work your way into the rest of the day when you are ready to take your juicing to another level.
Whatever you decide it is wise to go with a high quality unit the last thing you want is to have equipment failure especially when you are starting out because you may get discouraged and give up.
