The Truth Behind Juicing

What those pretty juicing posts don’t show you

Seems innocent enough right?
Then BAM!
The good, the bad, and the really scary.
It’s really not so bad and I would’ve still gotten a juicer but I wish someone had warned me about the cleanup because it would’ve saved me from the big surprise I received after my first time juicing. 
Though I must say before I sign off that AJ is so wonderful and always helps me take care of the mess. Love him.

    My aunt tosses fruit and veggie scraps from juicing into muffins and pasta sauces. Lots of fiber, I guess?

    Yes, it can be a little messy when you first start juicing. However, the more you do it, the easier and quicker cleanup becomes. Also, rinse immediately and toss into dishwasher when finished so nothing gets to set in.

    Yep, agree with the others, never juice a banana! Clean up will be much easier without that. After you juice your ingredients, just throw the juice in the blender with the banana. And ditto to putting a bag in the part where the pulp comes out. Saves you a clean up step. :) Happy juicing!

    Ditto the banana. Never juice them. They clog the juicer. Like the lady said throw your juice in the blender with your whole banana. :)

    Did you juice the banana in your juicer? If yes, next time blend the juice youve made in the blender with the banana. You will have a much better result.

    We always but a plastic bag in the component where the pulp/etc goes and clean up goes much faster. We remove and dump into compost.
