Bella NutriPro “Cold Press” Juicer


bella-nutripro-juicer-review

The NutriPro is a new juicer from Bella and it’s their first masticating juicer. The use of the term “cold press” seems to be confusing some people but it’s simple, this is a vertical masticating juicer.

As with all masticating juicers it uses a slowly rotating auger (that generates less heat than a centrifugal juicer) to crush and press juice out of the produce. This is why it’s referred to as a “cold press” juicer.

How Long Can I Store My Juice?


carrot-juice-in-bottle

A popular question from new juicers is how long can I store my juice? My answer is simple and straight to the point. Do not store your juice, consume it immediately after juicing. That way you get the maximum benefit without losing anything.

However, if you absolutely must store your juice then how long it will last depends on a variety of different factors including the type of juicer used, what fruits and vegetables you are juicing, the temperature you store it at, what you store it in and how soon after juicing you refrigerate it.

Let’s take an in-depth look at exactly what causes juice to degrade and how to get the longest possible storage time with minimal effect on the quality of the juice.

What Do I Need To Start Juicing?


Juice Guy

You may think that all you need to start juicing is just a juicer and some fruits and vegetables to juice. But if you’re going to take juicing seriously there’s a little more to it than that. There are many questions to ask yourself like why are you juicing? What are you trying to achieve? How long are you looking to juice? How much do you want to spend on juicing?

If your budget is limited juicing is still very possible. The availability of cheap juicers has meant there has never been a better time to try juicing on a budget. Many people think that they need to buy a juicer to start juicing but it’s possible to juice with a blender if you already have one.

Should I Juice Fast?


woman-with-fruit

There is a lot of talk recently about juice fasting. Juicing is increasing in popularity due in part to documentaries like “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. There is an ever increasing range of juicers, books, DVDs and websites to support people who want to juice. But what exactly is juice fasting and how does it differ from regular juicing.

Fasting generally means to go without food. Many cultures and religions practice fasting but juice fasting is different. The reason is that juice fasting allows you to consume freshly made fruit and vegetable juice. So you are in fact not fasting in the traditional sense. You are actually replacing regular meals with juice.

Omega VRT350 Vertical Single Auger Masticating Juicer


omega-vrt-350-featured

The Omega VRT350 vertical juicer isn’t a cheap juicer but as the saying goes, “you get what you pay for”.

You can get one for $380 with free shipping and if that’s way outside of your budget then take a look at Omegas 8000 series of horizontal masticating juicers (J8003, J8004, J8005, J8006) which start at $230. If your budget is lower than this you’re probably looking for a centrifugal juicer.

This is a great masticating juicer and it uses a single auger to slowly crush and squeeze the juice out of produce. It creates juice of a noticeably higher quality than centrifugal juicers with less oxidation and damage to key enzymes found in fruits and vegetables. Anyone making the transition from a centrifugal juicer will immediately notice the flavors are clearer and sharper than centrifugal made juice.

Choosing The Right Juicer


decision-time

There is a huge choice of juicers available today and while choice is always a good thing it can be hard to decide which juicer is best for you.

The number one thing that drives most of us when deciding which juicer to buy is our budget. A lot of people don’t have lots of money to spend in this economic climate. Of course some of us are luckier and have more money to spend on a juicer. Decide how much you can afford to spend first because this will most likely determine which type of juicer you end up buying.

Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain


Breville BJE200XL

The Breville BJE200XL is currently the lowest priced juicer on offer from Breville. It sells at around $100 and is of course a centrifugal juicer. This model seems to get mainly positive reviews. Indeed Breville juicers seem to be well respected on the whole which adds to their already good reputation in the kitchen appliance market.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t the juicer used by Joe Cross in his movie” Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. That was the Breville JE98XL which is a bit more expensive, selling for around $150 online. It too is a centrifugal juicer although it comes with a more powerful motor and dual speed control.

Favorite Juicing Recipes


Juice

These are some of my favorite juicer recipes. I am always experimenting with new ingredients and combinations and so should you!

One thing I should say is to keep it simple when starting juicing. You will get to know which flavors you like, which ones you don’t but can handle in small amounts (for me it’s beetroot) and which ones make you want to vomit (for me it’s asparagus).
