I bought a juicer. And I am more excited about it than I thought I would be. It is amazing.
Fresh, healthy juice every morning?! I don’t even need coffee anymore – juice is giving me an even bigger jolt than caffeine ever did! Especially this recipe – but before I get to that, let’s talk about this juicer…
I was looking for an introductory juicer because I wasn’t ready to commit hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to something I had never done before, and let’s be honest, could have turned into another appliance sitting in the cupboard. I was also looking for one that had lots of great reviews.
I ended up purchasing the Breville Juice Fountain Plus – this just so happens to be the same juicer that was made popular by the doc Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I watched that film long ago on Netflix but it didn’t influence my decision in buying the same juicer (although let’s be honest, that doc was pretty inspiring). What did influence my decision was the amazing number of awesome reviews. When I saw that my produce delivery company, Spud, was offering a promo on that exact juicer, the decision was made.
I love my juicer. I have been making fresh juice every single morning since it arrived – juicing carrots, apples, spinach, lemons, beets, grapefruit, berries, and ginger. And I’m only at the tip of the iceberg.
If you’re considering a juicer, I would highly recommend the Breville Juice Fountain Plus (I am not being paid to say this!) – it’s under $200 and it rocks my world.
Enough nerding out about the juicer! This Apple Carrot Ginger juice is the first juice recipe I tried and I’ve come back to it again and again because it’s just so yummy and the jolt of spicy fresh ginger really gets my morning off on the right foot.
