« on: June 01, 2008, 08:11:15 pm »

by quality, i mean one like the Greenstar juicer.

I think I paid more like $400 or $450 from sunfood.com for my Green Star. Also I've been using it (at times daily or even more) for almost 4 years now and it still works great. I actually broke part of one of the gears by dropping it, and the vegetable plate got bent somehow (perhaps from the broken gear) and so now it makes a noise and looks a little beat up, but it still works perfectly.

It is a lot of money, but I'm definitely of the opinion that buying one high quality thing is a lot more sensible then buying a lot of low quality crap like most people do. I'd rather have a few nice things then a bunch of inferior things, especially when it comes to health/food appliances.

what are you mostly juicing?

are you switching up your juice recipes or taking a day or two off every now and then.. i heard you can develop an allergy to some certain types of vegetable juice..

how much are you drinking daily?

Metallica, what kind of juicer is the Omega 8003, like is it Centerfugal, does any metal contact the vegetables?

Kyle, im the same way with paying more for higher quality, but thats some crazy money.

I switch up juices and skip days mostly out of laziness. Always celery, almost always cucumber. Then it's variable, cilantro recently, squash sometimes, beets or carrots. I used to do celery/lettuce but with watery fruits like cucumbers it's much more appealing. Then I blend the juiced product with unheated honey and lemon or lime juice (just a quick squeeze). Today I skipped the citrus juice and it was fine. The citrus is important according to AV if you're not going to drink it right away as it preserves the nutrients longer than without.
