As someone who has been drinking smoothies and juicing for the last three years, I can’t tell you how much I really love it.
I love the taste and the convenience, but just like with anything new, it does take some getting used to. So, if you don’t know where to start, this series should come in really helpful.

Here are a few other tips if you are a first time juicer..
After searching around and weighing my options I purchased the juicer found below.
The main reason why I bought it is because it is easy to clean, it was one of the more effective ways to get the juice and store it without losing the health benefits and bonus, it has a ten year warranty. I’ve had mine for over a year and I use it a lot and I have never had a problem. I love that it has an attachment for both think pulp, and no pulp. After a year of use, I still feel like it was a great investment, and I would buy it again, no question.
This is the juicer I use…[AMAZONPRODUCTS asin=”B00434JINO”]
Here are a few of my favorite juicing books…
I got this as part of my Popsugar box in January. I love the pictures, the recipes are broken down by skill level, and also by ingredient. I love it!
This cookbook is by Joe Cross the guy who is connected to the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead Movie…
I have this first edition of this book circa 1992. It is a great reference and I would recommend it to a new juicer.
Tune in to the series for more great tips, and please share your favorite juice recipe. I would love to try some new recipes…
