The first time I had a green juice was about 10 year ago. I was with my friend Gelina at Whole Foods Market and she was getting one. “I’ve never had a juice before. Will you order one for me?”, I said. Politely GiGi said; “It’s not gonna be like anything you have had before. You may not like it.” Not liking it was a MAJOR understatement. Needless to say, GiGi finished it for me. I could not get over how awful fruit and veggies could taste. My V-8 juices were nothing like this!! 2 years ago at the Memphis Farmers Market I saw the So Fresh Mobile Juice Bar truck. I decided to give it another try. I went straight in with the A.B.C. (apple, beets and carrots). I was not messing around. LET’S DO THIS!! It was absolutely delicious. Before the farmers market season was over I had tried every juice on the menu. After the market season, I found the Cosmic Coconut to supply my juice needs. Then a light bulb went off, “get a juicer”. I researched for several days and finally settled on the Breville Compact Juice Fountain. When it came time to use it I was very nervous. It felt almost like I was being initiated into a special club.
This machine has become my one true love. It is easy to assemble and use. More importantly it is easy to clean. I use it just about every day. If you put a fruit, veggie or herb in front of me, I will juice it. I get a burst of energy every time I make fresh juice. It is the most wonderful feeling!!! It’s as if I can feel my body getting healthier, stronger and an overall sense of well-being. Here are a few of my creations.
