Peace! Juicing is a great way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet. However, simply owning a juicer is not enough to ensure that you are getting the most nutritional benefit from your produce.

In order to make the most out of your juicer, here are some tips to follow:

Tip #1 - Choose the right produce

Collard greens, Dandelion, Fennel, Burdock, Spinach, etc.

Not all fruits and vegetables are created equal when it comes to juicing. When selecting produce for juicing, choose items that are fresh, ripe, and in season.

Tip #2 - Use a variety of produce

Oranges, pears, apples, limes, and rhubarb

In order to get a wide range of nutrients, it's important to use a variety of produce in your juices. Try mixing fruits and vegetables of different colors to get a range of vitamins and minerals.

Tip #3 - Wash your produce

Before juicing, make sure to wash all produce thoroughly. This helps to remove any dirt, bacteria, or pesticides that may be present on the skin. I personally use a mixture of water, apple cider vinegar, and key lime, but I've seen others use baking soda as well. Use whatever method works best for you to clean your produce effectively.

Tip #4 - Use a masticating juicer

A masticating juicer is preferred for juicing because it slowly turns and squeezes produce, minimizing heat and oxidation. This helps to preserve the nutrients and enzymes in the juice, resulting in a more nutritious beverage.

I am currently using the Kuvings Revo 830 juicer, which is a great option. However, if you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Kuvings C7000 was my first juicing appliance and served me well for four years without any issues. I eventually passed it on to my sister-in-law. Use the code BRANDON on the Kuvings website to save 10% on your purchase.

Tip #5 - Drink your juice immediately

Freshly made juice is best consumed right away. If you need to store your juice, vacuum seal it in a mason jar to help maintain freshness and preserve the live nutrients in your juice. It is recommended to consume the juice within three days at the latest. A portable electric mason jar vacuum sealer that works with both regular and wide-mouth jars can be useful for this purpose.

Bonus Tip #6 - Experiment

Remember to have fun with juicing and experiment with different produce combinations to find what works best for you.

By following these tips, you can get the most out of your juicer and enjoy delicious and nutritious juices that will help you feel your best. Thanks for reading! Happy juicing!
