I was beyond excited when I ran into my friend Drew at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim! I know Drew as a photographer and fellow Okie, but I totally forgot that he has another business in addition to his photography. Enter: the Healthy Juicer!
He was at the expo promoting the Healthy Juicer and I started talking with him about giving one away to a lucky fan of the blog. He not only agreed to give one away, he also gave one to me! I was so excited when I picked it up last weekend and couldn’t wait to start juicing!
It is so easy to put together, use and clean! I was skeptical at first, but after using it a couple of times this weekend, it’s totally true!
I busted out my fruit, vegetables and juicer, chopped the fruits and veggies, put together the healthy juicer, juiced it up, drank up the deliciousness, then took it apart and cleaned it, all in less than 30 minutes!
There are no messy screens to scrub and the Healthy Juicer even comes with this handy little wrench to help take the juicer apart! They also have this sweet video to show you just how quick the cleanup process is!
The Healthy Juicer is a masticating juicer, masticating means to ‘chew’ or grind. Other juicers that are centrifugal, use a high RPM to cut the produce and then slap it against the screen, extracting the juice. During this process there is heat build-up and oxidation which kills nutrients. The Healthy Juicer uses a high torque motor with a 72 RPM auger to squeeze the juice out of produce with no heat-build up, resulting in a live-enzyme juice and killing no nutrients. Yay for keeping your nutrients!
Another benefit is that a masticating juicer such as the Healthy Juicer can juice wheatgrass and other leafy greens, whereas others simply can’t. Wheatgrass is entirely too fibrous for a centrifugal juicer to extract juice. Check out this Healthy Juicer full demo video for even more information on this awesome juicing machine!
For my first juicing experience I combined Strawberries, Cucumbers and Kale!
- 8-10 strawberries
- 1 cup kale (chopped)
- 1 cup cucumber (sliced)
Add each ingredient to the Healthy Juicer and watch it go to work producing a delicious, super healthy, nutrient packed beverage!
