My strange addiction: Juicing – Part I

Through talking with my classmate Wendy, I was introduced to the concept of juicing. After hearing about how much her and her family enjoyed it, I decided to watch a documentary she recommended: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

The documentary follows the journey of a man determined to cure his disease and obesity through juicing. The film was so compelling that I ordered a juicer halfway through watching the documentary.

While the man in the film went on an extreme juicing fast, I immediately realized the health benefits that I would see in my own life, if I started juicing. As to not overwhelm readers, I will make a future post explaining the full health benefits of juicing.

To start off, I needed a juicer. Not knowing how much I would really enjoy it, I decided to not go overboard and spend crazy amounts of money on my juicer, which is easily possible. On Amazon, I found one with a decent rating for fairly cheap.

I bought:

Black & Decker JE2200B 400-Watt Fruit and Vegetable Juice Extractor with Custom Juice Cup


It was around $35 and I got it with free shipping. One of the reasons I picked it was because it is made for beginners. In addition, I ordered a book on juicing called, 

The Big Book of Juices: More Than 400 Natural Blends for Health and Vitality Every Day


I eagerly awaited the arrival of my juicer, and it came within 4 days!

Check back soon for my next post on my very first juicing experience!
