Admit it. You clicked on this post to tell me that I had a misspelling in the title. LOL!
The fact is - I misspelled it purposely to let you in on something amazing that happened last week. It went a little like this:
Husband: Are there beets at the store?
Me: Yes, why?
Husband: Can you get some?
Me: Yes, why?
Husband: Because I want to juice them.
Never in my life did I think I would hear those words come from my husband's mouth. They were music to my ears!
One of our more unusual, but favorite, juice recipes comes from Cafe 118 in Winter Park, Florida. It's a ratio of 2-3 Granny Smith apples to 1 beet. The resulting flavor tastes exactly like purple grape juice. It's amazing!!
For those of us who don't love beets, this is a great way to benefit from the high caliber nutrition without struggling with the taste of dirt.
Speaking of juicers, my full-of-surprises husband has been shopping for a new juicer to keep at the office so that he can juice for lunch. He's been looking at the stainless steel Breville models and the current Jack LaLanne model. Recently he went to Bed, Bath & Beyond with his 20% off coupon but came home empty handed.
We've had an old model Jack LaLanne for 4 or 5 years and it has served us so well. It might not be "the best" juicer in terms of extraction, but for the price (ours was $99) it is a champ! My husband did not like the newer, nicer models because they had more & smaller parts to clean and the ease of clean-up in the juicing world is key.
Any juicer that is a pain in the booty to clean is just not going to get used and if you're juicing 3+ times a day, you want the clean-up to be easy, quick and effective.
So we went hunting for an old model Jack LaLanne juicer and found plenty of new and used opportunities on eBay. Search for "Jack LaLanne Power Juicer." It's white, no stainless and looks like this:
We purchased this used one for $52 including shipping. It's the best entry-level juicer...from which you may choose not to upgrade. Like us!
