Fresh vegetable juice is one of the best things you can put in your body. The juice feeds your body on the cellular level. Because your body does not have to digest the juice (since the fiber is gone) it can go straight to the cells where it can benefit your health in many ways. I thought I’d share my process of making juice this morning!
Here’s our juicer! It’s an Omega VRT 330HD. It’s one of the best juicers on the market today.
And here’s what I juiced: carrots, celery, romaine, collards, and an apple. Organic is best, but if you can’t get it, just use conventional produce and wash it well.
The juicer slowly crushes the produce and extracts the juice into one container and the pulp into another.
Here it is all done! I strain the juice through a strainer to make sure there is no pulp left behind (didn’t get a pic), and I clean up while it’s straining.
A quick rinse and set everything out to dry.
Off I go to the compost pile! The container on the left is scraps I’ve been collecting for the past 2 days.
Here’s our compost pile we’ve been working on for a while.
First I dump the food scraps in the bin and spread them out.
Then I shovel some soil over it to cover. I do this each time to create layers of food and soil. The food will decompose and it will create a rich soil we can use in our garden.
Time to go inside, rinse my compost container out, and enjoy some fresh vegetable juice! YUMMY and OH SO GOOD for you!
