Just squeeze, please please please (the Juice thread!)
Does anyone out there juice? I've been buying a lot more recently for breakie, so instead of spending $7 on one every monring I've put down an order for a Hurom juicer

anyone else out there do a lot of juicing? I'm aware of the cleaning factor but it seems to be not so bad with the slow juicers as long as you clean them straight away.

N.B. here are some of the articles i read while deciding what to buy.

http://bestjuicerratings.org/
http://www.harvestessentials.com/whatjuicisri.html
and a few others...

keen to here from people who have masticating (heh...) juicers and what their experiences are... is the speed really a concern?

oh, also need lots and lots of recipes!

edit: I've just spent 5min unsuccessfully trying to find the circa 1987 "just squeeze" commercial with the 2 chicks being highly sexist and objectifying men, to no avail

yeah, i really find that the effort to clean juicers outweighs the benefits. it's great for a while, but eventually it just sits there not being used.

^ I find it messy and annoying, especially at work (which is where i intend to make it for)

dem... that's been my major resistance in buying one, but the one I'm getting is surprisingly easy.... as long as you rinse straight after use. Mate back in sydney has one and showed me last time I was back.

Gotta watch your fructose consumption with juicers, easy to go overboard and get a bit porky.

yeah, mainly looking at juices consisting of vegies and fruits. carrot, beetroot, etc... plus whatever else is lying around. I'm not a huge fan of sweet fruits anyway.

I've noticed that recently I'm not eating as many vegies as i probably should be. while it's not the complete solution it's not a bad start.

I used to do my own juice every morning, as long as its an easy juicer to clean.... you all good.

Basically I would buy what ever took my fancy at the supermarket - Orange/ginger/beetroot/apple/carrot/pineapple and bang that into the juicer in the morning.... I think I did fennel once as well, not exactly the greatest of tastes

I loved ginger in my juices.... but not for everyone...

After these juices I would usually feel pretty good all morning and not hungry till lunch time.

Hope that helps!

I'm looking at buying one of these.



Crush apples for cider, pears for perry, grapes for vino and so on. Not quite on the health freak tangent of others in this thread, but sorta related.

I've got roughly a year to get my shit together and try to make some wine before harvest next year.....

It would be pretty rockstar to actually just make a barrel of wine for the fun of it. I have enough people I know in the wine industry to help me.
