    juicing

    I have tried juicing using a blender but it was so chunky. Any recommendations on buying a juicer on a very limited budget? Any good juicing recipes to share?

      We have a Breville Juicer - we love it - Amazon has lots of juicers - not sure what your budget is, but they have some they have ones that start in the $30 range. another option would be to get a refurbished one, and/or look at flash sites. Good luck.

      On Amazon they have juicers ranging from $35. I'd go on there, find one with the free two day shipping, and read all the reviews. I'd focus on ease of use, ease of cleaning, and durability. If you don't find something you like on amazon I'd check overstock too. Aside from that maybe someone in your area is selling one via craigslist.

      Growing up we juiced tons, I really like carrot-apple-celery juice. I'd be curious about juicing kale, or collard greens, probably I'd end up just blending it in with already juiced fruits and veggies though.

      If yiu want a good juicer that's going to last then I would get an Omega, they are expensive but worth every penny if you are going to be juicing daily or weekly. My friend bought one for me and I love it. Its easy to use and clean. Good luck.

      I also have an Omega and really like it. Get the auger type as opposed to the grate and strain type. The auger is much more effective. It is also more expensive, but you will get more juice from all of your produce, saving money in the end. You may also run the pulp back through the auger if it still feels moist. I also have a Vita Mix that I love. It "juices" in the sense that the food is pulverized and if you add water it is then juice. Depends if you are trying to minimize fiber to increase ease of digestion or keep the fiber. Remember that Christmas is coming. This could be a good gift for your familly/friends to go in on together.

      I just bought the "Nutri-bullet" (from the makers of Magic bullet.) It's sound hokey, but it works great for juicing. You can throw whole fruit, nuts and veggies in and it emulsifies them...just add a little water or ice or even fruit juice and it's great. No pulp (it's liquified), no seeds (their gone) It costs 99.00 at Target.
