i dont get enough fruits or veggies in my diet by my own stupid choices and i have the feeling that i'd much prefer to simply drink em down for most of the benefit while concocting some hopefully tasty mixes at the same time. buying bulk and juicing looks to be way cheaper long term than buying v8 juice or similar in any kind of quantity, but ive never used one.

i remembered the fuzzy eyebrowed old guy Jack Lalanne and his juicer infomercials from high school and it looks like his brand is still around.... and possibly the best?

anybody use his or can recommend a different one? are they a good idea but end up under the counter eventually? nasty to clean?

I should probably do the same as you. Cant be any worse than not eating them.

x 2.

I carrot juiced daily for 1 year and felt great. My eyesight was better. The Champion model processes the juice better than others. The motor on the Champion model is giant. Juicing is the best thing for you.

The effort to daily juice 3# of carrots was a lot. I tapered off.

I used a girlfriends juicer, it worked well. I found that the big 50# bag of deer bait carrots were the best deal. Often less tha $5.

your suggestion encouraged me to look around - so I juiced 1# of carrots, 10 tart Michigan apples, and two stalks of celery and had 2 giant glasses of juice to drink down, Yum!

I used to experiment with fruits and veggies and found that beets were the worst. Messy and an earthy taste. Yuck!
