So I turned to my trusted resource for finding out such valuable information, Facebook. My friends gladly put in their votes for the best juicer around: a Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite or an Omega 8004 (a masticating juicer, FYI). I have to say, both sound great. It may be that no matter which way I go, I won't go wrong. I have also gotten a bit of input from this blog, a yoga blog I follow and enjoy. This yogi says the Breville Elite 800 is the way to go. Big decisions I have to make.
I have been avoiding the juicer purchase for quite a while. I am happy with my Vitamix, it has served me well, and it is very easy to clean. The juicer is a whole new level of kitchen gadget, and I don't like kitchen gadgets. Once again my minimalist tendencies and my homesteader tendencies are clashing (although juicing isn't really a homesteading thing, is it).
For the sake of having a picture, here is my cat. He is in my spot. He could care less about juicing or smoothies. Keepin it real.
