Yep my friends, I bought a juicer! The 'Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor' to be exact and I am SUPER excited about it! I have wanted a juicer for a while now. A lot of the blogs I read constantly advocate for the benefits of juicing - not only is it a great way to be more healthy and get your fruits/veggies but it's also supposedly really tasty! I had been debating buying a juicer for a while, every time I would see one in a store I would stop and look at it, I read a ton of reviews about which brand and type of juicers are best and I even consulted some coworkers who are avid juicers! So the juicer has been sitting in my Amazon shopping cart for a couple of months and just last week I finally pulled the trigger! Along with the juicer I also bought The Juicing Bible which I expect will have TONS of good juicing recipes.
I am hoping that juicing can help keep me on track with my fitness and weight loss goals. To be honest I have never been one to sit down and eat a plate of veggies for dinner nor have I been the one to munch on a bunch of fruit throughout the day. I have definitely gotten better and incorporating more fruits and veggies into my diet but I know I could definitely use more. From my perspective I feel juicing may be a good way for me to consume a ton of fruits and veggies without feeling like they dominate my meals. We'll see how it goes! It should arrive sometime this week and I can't wait to give it a try!
