🧐 Choosing a juicer
We use a Slow Masticating Juicer that has become our juicing companion. You will find two camps of juicers— cold-pressed (also called slow masticating) and centrifugal juicers.
The cold-pressed juicers slowly press down the produce until the dry fiber falls into a separate container.
Get an excellent Cold-Pressed juicer, also known as a slow-masticating juicer.
It will be one of the best investments you have made this year! Trust me! Make sure you check the juicer's instructions before starting, as many juicers have different working mechanisms.

Centrifugal juicers extract juice fast, spinning cut-down veggies and fruits around until the fiber and liquid separate.
They are also typically cheaper as the slow-masticating juicers are more efficient at getting more juice from your veggies and fruits.
Our juicer is a slow cold-pressed juicer, and we love it.
If you don't have a juicer, you can also make juices, following these simple tips on juicing without a juicer plus three delicious recipes.
Yes, but fresh pineapple is always best, especially because they don’t come in sugary syrup and fresh pineapple is better for optimal nutrition and distinctive flavor.

you sure can. You just need to pass it through a mesh strainer. You can also skip that step and leave the fiber in- just add one cup of water so it isn't too thick.
