    I recently got a Hurom and really like it. My trainer is an avid Vitamix user though, which ensures you get all of the fiber as well. Then you won't have the pounds of ruff age left

      I can go either way. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a smoothie and other days nothing but a juice will do. But I find that smoothies are so much easier to make because the clean-up is almost instantaneous!

    Hello! Thank you for sharing your passion for juicing. You are right, there is a better way! You seem to be mostly interested in juicing leafy greens and I would not recommend using a centrifugal juicer for that. They are notoriously bad at just that. Plus they are sometimes harder to clean. A masticating juicer or, even better, a twin gear juicer, can easily give you 100% or more juice from leafy greens. Yes, they are a little more expensive but you make it up in savings on produce in a short time. If you are really serious about juicing, which you seem to be, then the investment is a no brainer. I have a twin gear juicer myself and it takes me just 3 min to clean. Keep juicing! Marcus

      Hey Marcus, I now have a Hurom juicer. The first few glasses of juice were glorious! I love the fresh, clear, pure taste of fresh veggie juice! But when I make larger batches (a litre for the day), I get a fine pulp that separates from the juice. Any advise?

    I am a "green liquid" nerd to say the very least. I too was surprised at the amount of 'waste' juicers made (and to me, fiber is our friend, so I'd rather keep it) and so I busted out my trusty blender (my mothers circa 1967) and the poor thing did its best, but it was kind of like eating chunky juice ... mmm ... chunky juice. I've got friends who SWEAR BY their Vitamix, but I just cannot justify the price - even though I would use it everyday. What to do? What to do? Then whilst flicking during a Corontaion Street commercial break I stumbled across an informercial for the Nutribullet. (I promise, I do not work for them, endorse them for money or ANYTHING like that!) I was hypnotized by its claims of 'smooth smoothies' - they were whizzing up everything including flax seeds and it was still producing smoothie-smoothie'ness (is that a word?). Never having been one to buy anything from the TV before, i was totaly skeptical. Then, as if "someone from above" was looking down, in the Canadian Tire flyer was a super-sale on the NutriBullet. "Okay okay!" I shouted to no one in particular, "I'll give it a go." That was 6 months ago - I can hand on heart say, this little appliance has changed my life. I have at least one green smoothie a day, and have done for the last 6 months. And while it's not "juice-thin" I'm okay with that 'cause it's so full of goodness that I can FEEL the healthy'ness (again another non-word) RUNNING thru my veins :) I would really recommend this little thing ... it's at least 1/4 the cost of a Vitamix and if all you're looking for is a 'glass of healthy' - I'd TOTALLY try it out. Infomercial is now over LOL Happy smoothie'ing :)

      Hey ShortStack, Thanks for sharing the experience. I wish I was more SM savvy because I would have read your story in February when you wrote it instead of 4 weeks later!! I did get a Vitamix and have had the very same experience of excitement just because I feel so much better. Glad you got your health-high at a quarter the price!
