Juicing 101

April 20, 2015 2 min read

A beginners guide to juicing!

  • As you can see you can really mix any combination of fruits and vegetables. You want to put the emphasis on vegetables, especially dark leafy greens like kale, collard, mustard and dandelion greens to help alkalinize the body. You always just want to make sure that you balance out the bitterness of the greens with a citrus fruit like lemon, lime or orange.
  • Be sure to use as much organic produce as you can, the pesticide residues found in conventional products isn’t something we want in our bodies!
  • Drink your juice as soon as you can after making it. Juice is very sensitive to the air and is therefore quite perishable. The sooner you can drink it, the more nutrients and living enzymes your body will be able to absorb.
  • Just because your juicing doesn’t mean you don’t need to eat vegetables. The juicing process separates the fibre from the juice in the form of pulp, we need an adequate amount of fibre in our diets to maintain healthy digestion and elimination. The practice of juicing simply encourages you to go above and beyond our normal consumption of vegetables.
  • I use the OMEGA 8006-a very reputable and affordable brand and I highly recommend them, especially those with a single gear auger.
You will never get bored of juicing because the possibilities are endless! Here are a few of my favourite combinations, give them a try!
  • 2 carrots, 1 beet and a small apple.
  • 3 kale leaves, 1 handful of baby spinach, half of a cucumber, half of a lemon (always peel citrus fruits), 1 green apple
  • 3 carrots, 1 apple, 1 thumb size piece of ginger

Happy Juicing!

'Due to COVID-19, online stores are experiencing some shipping delays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we assure you that we are working hard with our shipping partner UPS to get you your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.'

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it just takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
