The topic of “plastic versus stainless steel juicers” is rarely discussed in the juicing world, but that’s beginning to change. The direct benefit of a stainless steel juicer is its longevity: the materials are durable and dishwasher safe. However, there are many other reasons someone may choose to go plastic-free with a stainless steel machine. We’ll cover all the reasons you might consider a plastic-free juicer below. The acids and enzymes present in juice wear at plastic pieces in juicing machines over time or with consistent use. This becomes a health concern as corroded plastic is more likely to hold bacteria and absorb flavors.
Masticating juicers are often referred to as cold press juicers or slow juicers. This category of juicers includes some the best juicers available. We’ll cover lots of important information for making a decision, including what cold pressed means and why you might choose a masticating juicer over a centrifugal juicer. It’s helpful to note that there are two different types of masticating juicers: single auger and twin gear (considered a high-end juicer). We’ll focus mainly on single gear cold press juicers, then take a look at our favorite twin gear juicers and who might consider purchasing one of those.
So you’ve decided to begin drinking celery juice every day? Congratulations! Personally, I’ve also been exploring this popular wellness hack from Medical Medium, Anthony William. If celery juice is as powerful a medicinal tonic as he claims (ideal for cleansing the liver and rebooting health), I too wanted to give the celery juice trend a try. After deciding to jump in, the obvious first question was: what juicer does Medical Medium recommend? I was very surprised to discover that he doesn’t strongly recommend any one juicer. On the medical medium blog he says, “Omega Juicers are great depending on your budget, but any juicer will work.”
When starting any new venture, it’s important to know why you’re doing it. That "why" has turned celery juice into a wellness mega trend. From creating clearer skin to fighting autoimmune disease, the benefits of drinking celery juice are just beginning to be explored. But it’s important to know whether those benefits are claims from the source of this trend (Medical Medium Anthony William), from science, or from someone’s first-hand experience. We’ll look at all the benefits of celery juice within the context of those categories. Why drink celery juice? That’s what we all want to know, right?
Celery Juice has taken the Wellness community by storm thanks to Medical Medium, Anthony William. William says it’s a “miraculous superfood,” with healing properties he’s witnessed first-hand. While science may not yet validate William's claims about the benefits of celery juice, it will acknowledge that there’s plenty still to be discovered about food's effect on health. Much of the information on celery juice has been shared by Wellness experts who have tested out celery juice for anywhere from one week to three years, and rave about its benefits.
So you’re ready to jump on the celery train; welcome! If you’ve got a juicer, plug that baby in and juice a whole head of celery—wa-la! But what if you want to try this whole celery juice thing out before investing in a new appliance? Dust off the ‘ol high-speed blender—we’ve got the perfect recipe. Whether you’ve got a Magic Bullet, Nutribullet, Ninja, or some reliable blender bought decades ago, you can make celery juice in a blender. To remove the fiber, you’ll also need a fine-mesh nut milk bag. Otherwise, you’ll have a celery smoothie and no one wants that.
When juicing first became a mainstream idea, “the juicer to buy” was the centrifugal juicer. We all saw the infomercials and many of those same juicers can still be purchased. However, across the internet, new information quickly spread that centrifugal juicers produce too much heat and therefore kill all the nutrients we’re trying to drink! But is that true? Do centrifugal juicers destroy nutrients or is that internet hype? I did a lot of research to find out, and what I learned is that we have a lot more testing to do. Juice from a centrifugal juicer contains about 15% less nutrients, which is a minimal amount overall. This information was the only unbiased, well-tested
When you put produce through the juicer, all that beautiful pulp gets left behind. Lots of fiber and some nutrients are still left in the pulp; and if you juice regularly, the amount of pulp adds up quickly. Surely there must be a creative way to use these leftovers (other than making unappetizing crackers and pastries). I was tired of throwing my juice pulp in the trash, so I went searching for better ideas on what to do. First, let’s cover the short list of what you can do with leftover juice pulp. Then, I’ll go over the beneficial uses of each idea.
When juicing, there are staple vegetables I return to again and again: carrots, cucumbers, leafy greens, apples, beets, and sweet potatoes. When it’s time to add a bit more variety, I find myself reaching for anything I can find in the fridge. But that got me thinking, are there any fruits and vegetables that I shouldn’t be juicing? Some produce can’t be juiced simply because you won’t be able to extract juice from it very well, such as berries and bananas. But I was most interested in potential negative side effects from juicing certain vegetables. We’ll cover a list of both the vegetables that should not be juiced for health reasons and those that
When I started juicing, the first term I learned was “cold pressed.” Quickly though, I began to see slow juicing pop up to describe specific types of juicers. But, I wondered, what is the difference between slow juicing and cold pressed juicing? A little research revealed the simple answer. However, through learning about slow juicing and cold pressed juicing, I also learned that the reason these two phrases are used so often is because they’ve become synonymous with high-quality juicing methods. Is slow juicing the same as cold pressed? Yes, it is! The terms slow juicing and cold pressed both...
