5 tips for better juicing

See also

A popular way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet is juicing. While eating three cups of kale might sound like a good idea, the time and effort to sit and eat all that roughage can be hard. Juicing brings the nutritional benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables in a convenient form.

While people have juicer preferences, the Cuisinart Juice Extractor, model CJE-1000 is a convenient, easy to use option. It quickly and efficiently juices soft and hard fruits and vegetables. In a few minutes, a glass of fresh juice is ready to be drunk.

If you are new to juicing, here are five tips to make your juicing easier.

1. Chilled juice glass

Fresh juice tends to taste better when chilled. Since waiting for juice to chill can take a while, a chilled glass works well. Keep a few juice glasses in the freezer. These glasses will quickly chill the juice and make it taste better.

2. Keep a plastic bag handy

Juicing produces a lot of pulp or waste. Cleaning the container can be a pain. Line the container with a plastic bag for easy cleanup.

3. Drink it now

While preparing a week's worth of juice on the weekend sounds good, fresh juice doesn't keep. Drink the juice you make the same day. If you notice a change in color, for example apple juice, add a lemon to you juice. It will reduce the discoloration.

4. If it doesn't sound good, don't juice it

It sounds logically. If the vegetable or fruit doesn't sound like to should be juiced, then don't juice it. I doubt that there are man eggplant juices out there for a reason.

5. Take good care of your juicer

While it isn't fun to do dishes, taking proper care of your juicer is important to its longevity. Some juicers, like the Cuisinart Juice Extractor, have dishwasher safe part. The better care you take of the appliance the longer it will last.

It seems that juicing is here to stay. Find a good juicer that fits your needs and you will be on your way to getting more fruits and vegetables in your diet.
