I have flip-flopped on wanting a juicer too! I even ordered one and sent it back unopened. It seems the more I read about it, the more confused I get. On the one hand, I would love to have all of the health benefits from the extra nutrients, but on the other hand, I am worried about getting a food-borne illness like salmonella or E.coli from the raw vegetables and fruits. Apparently, washing alone will not remove these pathogens, only cooking will destroy them... along with a lot of the nutrients, of course. It's a dilemma for me.
I know the chances are not astronomical, but I'm just worried what a bout of food poisoning would do to my poor GI tract and I'm afraid to take the chance. I think that's what started me down the CD route in the first place. To me, it's too much like playing russian roulette. At least the store bought juice is pasteurized and I don't have to worry about that. I like the V8 Fusion juices.
I just wish there was a way to ensure the safety of our national food supply, I'd be more comfortable.
I haven’t used my juicer in ages but this post has inspired me to whip it out again!
My fave combos are
Oh the list goes on!
I would recommend you don’t buy ‘juicing carrots’ as they can be a bit dirty tasting. And carrots are pretty cheap anyway! I don’t peel my apples, my juicer is a good expensive one that my parents got me for my bday a few years ago, and it takes out all the pulp.
janicea, I'm pretty sure my juicer is a Breville.
It's fairly big and white, but pretty easy to clean. Its quite loud but juicing only takes a few seconds! I think they're a gerat investment, especially for times when you need nutrients but don't really feel like eating much. Ginger is fabulous, but yes use a little bit and gradually add in.
You can also put mint leaves in for some added ZING!
