Juicing Overview

                                                                                              

Personally, I love the Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer.  I have had juices from a few other juicers and I couldn’t get past the grit.  Typically, I grew up on smooth juice and anything less would have taken me a moment to get used to.

I remember being 16 years old when my father purchased a juicer.  He juiced quite a few veggies, dirt and all (he didn’t clean the vegetables) and insisted that I try it.  It was quite odd and I never thought that I would try fresh juice again – until my husband purchased a juicer.

Now, I must admit I liked the combinations of fruit and veggies that he put together, BUT,
the grit of the apples and pears turned me off.  So, oh well.

Then, enter the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer.

The Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Review

                                                                                                                                                    

As mentioned, I loved these juicers.  I usually don’t pay attention to “As Seen On TV Items”, but I’m lazy.  In other words, the thing that caught my attention is that you can put the whole fruit in.  That was easy.   I was attempting to try to live healthy again, so, after seeing it over and over, I decided to purchase it and try it for myself.  Personally, yes, I was pleased.

  • You can put the whole fruit inside – seeds and all.
  • The grinder and filter ensure that you get smooth juice.  That’s important to me.  The grinder/filter separates the pulp from the juicer.
  • It is relatively quiet.  It has a smooth motor.
  • You get so much juice from the fruit/veggie.  It seemly takes every drop of juice.
  • It really does have a large pulp container.

I love the way the juice pours from the spout.  The little things make me happy.

Benefits of Juicing

                                                                                                                                                    

Drinking fresh juice will add a multitude of vitamins and minerals to your body.

1Drinking Juice before meals can help curb appetite.

2Replace that morning cup of coffee with fresh juice for energy.

If you have a problem eating your fruit/veggies, you can drink your fruit and veggies.    Some
people have a problem with eating their fruit/veggies, so drinking it can be much easier.

You Can Make A Lot Or A Little

                                                                                                                                                    

Thereare times when you just may or may not want to make a lot or a little.  Nonetheless, it’s so simple.   You can use the juice to either drink or make nice recipes.

Remember, if you choose to make a lot, freeze it.  You don’t want to use all of the vitamin, mineral and great goodness.

Cleaning Can Be A Synch

                                                                                                                                                    

The parts can be dish washed as they are dishwasher safe.

You Don’t Have To Through Away The Pulp

                                                                                                                                                    

You can save the pulp to use in other items for cooking and baking.   You can add it to bread and muffins.  According to the Power Juicer Company, the pulp can give your cobblers a little extra zing.    Additionally, they mention that you can add it to your favorite non-dairy milk and ice to make the easiest fruit smoothie.  I’ve never tried it that way.

The veggie pulp can be added to your meat loafs, casseroles, soups, stews, and, pasta sauces.

A Cool Recipe – This is What I love

                                                                                                                                                    

  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Giant Handful of Spinach or Kale
  • 1 Pear
  • 1 Celery Stalk
  • 1 Orange
  • 2 Carrots

Run the fruit and veggies through the juicer in the order that it is presented above: Hard.  Soft.  Hard. Hard. Soft. Hard.

This will ensure that you get all of the juicing goodness out of the soft fruit and veggies.  Serve with ice ’cause I like mine juices cold.  Enjoy.

 

Cons – Cause There Are Always Cons – But You Can Live With It

                                                                                                                                                    

Washing is easy IF you have a dishwasher.  Washing is easy if you don’t mind washing.  Washing this thing is easy.  However, if you hate washing anything, cleaning it might be tedious ‘IF’
you’re lazy.  I am.  I admit it.

You may not have any issues in cleaning if you purchase the stainless steel version.  If you purchase the white one, the powerful proteins of the fruit/veggies can stain the white.

Sometimes, there are times when the fruit/veggie is too big for the entrance spout.  There are some huge apples and apple bottom pears.  You may have to cut some up.

There are some things that have to be peeled before juicing.  Melons and lemons, for example, have to be peeled.  Now don’t get me wrong.  There are many veggies that will go into the spout, but there are some that you will still have to peel before juicing.

While juicing is healthy, the fiber (something that you need) is in the pulp.  However, this can be easily replaced with beans, wheat grains, rice, in your diet; or even using the pulp in other
recipes.
