Well, we got a juicer last week.

Pretty exciting stuff!

Clay and I are both awful at eating vegetables. I am super good at eating fruit, but veggies, not so much. I go through phases where I'll do great....but I'm really not that great.


We got the Omega 8006, which is a bit more pricey than our last juicer we used for a week and then ignored. But...I can tell you, it's worth it.

The Omega is masticating, which kinda means it goes at a snails pace to juice your stuff, but also means its less oxidation and retaining more nutrients. Most juicers say to drink the juice right away...this one you can store your juice for up to 72 hours without losing its nutritional content.

Also, the Omega does a great job at NOT being foamy. We hate the foam business, so it's kinda great.

Also, the Omega's pulp is DRY. Meaning we are getting everything we can out of those suckers! (I am freezing the pulp to add to my smoothies...smart huh!)

So...the first night we did a juice that lasted two meals for each of us and we each drank 1 large beet, 3 stalks of celery, 1 apple, 2 long carrots, a lemon, and an inch of fresh ginger. Can you believe that! That's a lot of veggies for us!!! We are pretty pumped (I am at least).

Beety beety beety. 

The goal here is to get Clay's immune system up and running again, and to give him more energy. He's been pretty pooped lately. Anyone have any great combos? Most people tell me that they kind of just throw things in now after they've been juicing for a while. Well...fine. But if you have any good ones, share :) Here are some more combos we've tried.

Cucumber, kale, apple, peach, lemon, ginger

Carrot, grapefruit, ginger, peach

Cucumber, kale, spinach, apple, pear


  1. Yum. I miss juicing. Im glad you're doing it. I always feel so fresh when I dringk juice. I literally feel healthier, just one sip in. Like it's magic :)

  2. you are so cool. I want to taste all these! And I really hope it helps clay feel more energized. love you! and beautiful pics

  3. YOU are WRONG I hate the fruit flies and there are tons of them in my house. I have set the vinegar trap for them and I have killed so many of the little suckers. The juicer is really yummy looking. Love you
