We know that it is a healthy idea to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices 2-3 times a day. However, these healthy drinks, when bought from restaurants or commercial shops, can be a little expensive. But do not fret because there is always a practical and fun alternative to that.
In the comforts of your own home, you can enjoy the nourishing benefits of a fruit juice or vegetable drink. You simply need to have a juicer, which most household kitchens these days already have. Most of the juicers now are very convenient. You literally just throw all the ingredients inside, turn the juicer on, wait for a few seconds to couple of minutes, and voila! You already have your whole day’s worth of fresh juice at half the price of those commercial ones.
In case you don’t have a juicer yet, you might want to consider buying one soon. It is a good investment if you care about your health. When you buy a juicer, it should be versatile that it functions not only as a juicer but can also be a chopper, a food mill or a mincer. It is also best to buy one that is capable of working on slow speeds so as not to destroy your fruits and vegetables. Ease of cleaning is another important factor to take note of. The faster that you can clean the juicer, the more varieties you can make in less time.
