All About Juicing

As we recently shared, we are big fans of all-star mom and healthy-living guru Courtney Graham of Whole Diligence. Courtney’s fun and easy approach to feeding her family healthy, locally grown food is inspiring, and we’ve been lucky enough to learn from her at her cooking classes–for instance when we learned all about veggies and snagged the recipes for her easy and delicious Coconut Carrot Muffins and Veggie Baked Eggs. Today we want to focus on what we’ve learned from Courtney about juicing.

While many people might think of only fruit when they first think of juicing, it’s actually a great way to get a whole lot of veggies into one delicious, easy-to-drink glass. And as we’ve already learned from Courtney, you can never eat enough veggies! Juice is best consumed fresh, straight from the juicer into the glass. But you can also send it along with your kids in their school lunch or freeze it in popsicles for a treat later on. Courtney is hesitant to recommend a specific model of juicer, but rather says that there are several great ones on the market at different price points. Here are some good reviews of juicers by Mommies With Style’s Kate Bayless and a thoughtful review of several juicers by The Wirecutter‘s Brian Lam.
