Got myself a birthday gift this week: The Omega J8003 Fruit and Vegetable Juicer. Booyah! Made a promise to myself to imbibe lots of fresh carrot and beet juice daily, and so being a man of my word…ta da!!!
The Omega came highly recommended by a dear friend and avid juicer, who has “tried them all.” Made my first glass of carrot-ginger juice today, with the help of my girls, and boy-howdee was it good. Look how much fun we had cranking it out–never thought the girls would like it, too. Bonus!
Fresh juices are the way to go. Want great health? Then juice, period. The vitamins and nutrients you get from fresh juices are the tops. And why spend $7.00-$8.00 a pop at the local health food store (Erewhon in L.A.) when you can make a a$$-kicking glass at home for under $2.00 (probably less, but I’m still shopping for the best deals on carrots–any suggestions?)
The Omega is great–easy to put together, easy to use, and dang-easy to clean. That was a BIG consideration for me because the last thing I need is more work. I was done in 15 minutes, start to finish, and that included washing the carrots.
So if you’re wondering why I’ve turned orange, don’t think spray tan: It’s the fresh beta-carotene, baby. Aw yeah!
Next up: Asparagus, carrot and apple juice!
