Juicing My Way

11 Jan

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo I juiced my first juice yesterday…

After days of pouring over juicers online, I finally decided on the Breville Compact Juice Fountain, partly because of its great reviews and price point, but then I ultimately chose it because it’s the juicer he uses in Fat, Sick, and Nearly Deadย for a 60-day juice fast, so I know it’s gonna go the long road… In his case, literally, from the back of his car, but I digress… ๐Ÿ™‚

It arrived on Wednesday. (It’s also significantly cuter than the other one I was torn between. Aesthetics, folks, gotta have ’em.)


There are a ton of juicing recipes online, but I stocked my fridge with fruits and veggies that looked good to me and I’m just going to try a little trial and error for the next week or two until I find my groove… I didn’t really buy any supplements other than spirulina, so that’ll be a whole ‘nother thing.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI also threw in a few spirulina tablets as a protein supplement and some lemon…

I glanced at the assembly/disassembly directions but found the whole process to be pretty self-evident, i.e. everything fits one way in a certain order and there aren’t a ton of parts.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After making the juice you just take it apart piece by piece, dump out all the pulp, and then rinse or wash it. Viola! You’re done!

Today’s juice was more of a smoothie, and tomorrow I think I might go a little V-8-y on this piece… ๐Ÿ™‚ย OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


Have a lovely day!
