There are so many juicer options out there now. And I will admit to having a few in my kitchen, but I hardly ever use a juicer these days. For the most part, they are slow, and exhausting to clean. After a few well intended days of juicing, many people find it too much trouble and time […]
3 Steps to Getting Organized in the New Year The start of the new year is always exciting. Twelve new months stand before us, filled with plenty of opportunity ripe for the taking. The best way to make the most out of the new year is to look back over the previous year and clean […]
Preparing for my trip on Friday, I began writing a list to pack in my travel kitchen. I know that I don’t need to bring much as far as health foods when I travel to Southern Califonia, but this list served me well on my last trip. My last trip was a little different because […]
Breville Juice Fountain Plus JE95XL Somedays I want a fruit juice that I am going to drink immediately, this is when I turn to the Breville. I originally purchased this juicer in the fall when I was surrounded by free apples. I had about 60 pounds and with any other juicer that would have taken […]
Excalibur Dehydrator & Teflex Sheets This is one of my favorite things to use because of my love for baking. I can create flatbreads, cookies, spiced nuts, or just warm a dressing or soup.

The Machine! I had no idea that much juice could come out of my leafy greens. This juicer will surely save you money at the grocery store, but it may cost you a bit more in time. It does run a bit slower and takes some getting used to but it is a magical thing to use. I still use my Omega anytime I need really soft fruits juiced even with the proper attachments, but that is more due tot the extra time it take the Green star. Both machines produce moist pulp from juicy fruits and I tend to use a nut milk bag if I have a large amount of wet pulp at the end.
Omega 8005 This was my first juicer and really the first “raw” equipment purchase that I made three years ago. I really love this one, it is reliable, versatile and easy to clean. As far as a “go to” juicer that can do greens or fruit, there isn’t a machine that I have used that […]
