Product of the Week - Juicer

Another installment of product of the week! I love Thursdays!

Okay, I am obsessed with my Jack LaLanne's power juicer. I actually borrowed it from a friend to give it a "test run" because I couldn't fathom buying a juicer that would never be used. I LOVE this thing. I mean really, truly love. It is so easy to use, you can throw anything in there (and add an apple) and it tastes delicious. I love using up all of my produce that is starting to get a little too ripe, and I am cutting way back on my waste each week.

I have even been using my juicing pulp to bulk up my mac and cheese, muffins, and cookies with extra vitamins and fiber for the sweet girl. Seriously, google "what to do with my juicer pulp?" and it is like a gold mine! I know I sound crazy... it's all good. Making carrot muffins without shredding a billion carrots is ah-mazing....and so what if they are made with cream cheese frosting...there is still carrot involved.

This little sucker is a gem. I have been using it non-stop. For about $100, it is worth the investment of feeling good.

The only downfall is the clean up (and that it is kind of big on your counter). Cleaning up after one cup of juice is a bit of pain, but when I think about all the nutrients I am giving myself and my daughter I don't mind as much.

Check out my juicer pinterest board for lots of yummy recipes! My favorite is pineapple and carrot juice. It is so yummy, and it looks like a glass of sunshine!

Now, I am not some health freak, but I am hooked on juicing!
