Years ago I stumbled across the documentary, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It’s about an Australian guy, Joe Cross, who is struggling with a myriad of health problems, so he decides to do a juice fast while traveling across the United States. It was definitely the reason that I started juicing – it made so much sense to me. It took me awhile to make it an almost-daily-routine for me – but it is now, and I find myself craving it if I don’t have it for 48 hours. Here is a quick video that shows how I go about juicing about 5 nights a week.
I use the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor which is the juicer that Joe Cross uses in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It works really great – the one I have now is about 1.5 years old. And I have found it to be the best affordable juicer – especially if you grab it on sale or with a coupon. You can buy it on Amazon currently for $142.30.
Do you juice? Which juicer is your favorite? Do you follow a recipe or throw it altogether like me?
