Juicing

If you don't have a juicer, I highly recommend you get one (great thing to ask for as a present this holiday season!). My dad bought me the Omega 8003 this year and I absolutely love it.

I did a lot of research on juicers and was overwhelmed with all the options. One day I was the Fruit Gallery in Venice (1 Westminster Avenue) buying juice and I asked someone what they recommended. They said hands down the Champion juicer, which is one of the most well known of it's kind. While looking into it I found the Omega, and decided upon it because it can juice not only fruits & vegetables, but wheat grass - which is rare to find in a juicer. The Omega can also make nut butters, nut milks, and pasta! It's also very quiet and does not get hot, or make your juice hot. It's also a breeze to put together/take apart and clean. I bought it on Amazon in March 2008 for $224.

Juicing at home is fast, fun, and saves money. Fresh vegetable juice costs at least $5 for a glass, plus usually a trip in the car. Fresh orange juice is always overpriced - I just bought a bag of oranges from the Farmers Market for $4 and was able to make 3 big glasses (or 4-5 small glasses). And let's not forget - in most cases you're saving a plastic cup!
