We have had 3 good juicers but the one we have now is the best yet - can't recommend it high enough for ease of use, and quick cleanup. It's the Omega Vert. We have the 330 but there's a newer model now that some say is even better. We are very satisfied with ours.
Watch this video and I think you will be convinced--it's very educational

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Great video! It answered a question I had been pondering on. I am just starting today and thought about trying to get a group together at my work place to do this with me. But I have a little hesitation about everyone knowing what I am doing and having to discuss it all the time. So I think I will just worry about myself first and see how that goes.

Thanks for that reminder Blackandi! It reminded me to send that trailer to my son and his family.
DH and I juice every morning--been doing that for over a year now and neither of us has been sick a moment in that time.

Let me just remind everyone, this isn't so much about fruits and it's mainly about vegetables. We always add some apple (cut out the core), lemon and ginger to our juice which makes it very, very tasty. You can toss in a piece of a lemon, peel and all (wash it good if it's not organic--same with the apple). If you do too many fruits you will be getting too much sugar so be sparing with them; only use them to sweeten up the greens--you need to put a lot of dark, leafy greens in the juice.

Here's what we generally use:
Lacinato or curly kale (mainly lacinato 'cuz it's powerful)
Chard
Romaine lettuce
Brocolli or cauliflower
Tomato
Carrots
Beets
Turnips and rutabaga
Cabbage, red or green
a couple of green onions
a chunk of ginger
a medium apple
jicama
bok choy
and there are lots of other things you can experiment with just for fun. If you can stand it, use mustard greens, dandelion greens and any bitter greens. Personally, they are a bit strong for me but I know they are very nutritious.
EAT A LOT OF YOUR RAW VEGGIES JUICED!! And don't forget to gently cook some too for your meals.

To your health *lifts a big glass of some green stuff*

The hubs and I watched that a few months ago, very informative! We even purchased the same juicer. Now that my work schedule is a little more flexible, we are able to juice each night for the next day. You never realize how much sugar is in the stuff we drink until you try fruit juice you made yourself!

Not sure how I missed this documentary. I'm sure someone posted this here already, but for those who missed it like me check it out. Here is the trailer...
