Juicing is definitely in. I don’t know too many people that haven’t tried it or want to try it. You can find a ton of recipe books dedicated just to juicing. For me personally I would love to juice my veggies and down them all with one drink. I’m not a vegetable hater but I admit I don’t eat enough of them.
I was recently given a BELLA NutriPro Juicer to test out here at Shibley Smiles. I was immediately intrigued by the difference in the BELLA NutriPro and other juicers.
Fast spinning blades in blenders and traditional juicers tear open cell walls, creating oxidation and reducing nutrients.
The BELLA NutriPro Cold Press Juicer uses bladeless, cold-press technology to create juice that is bursting with fresh flavor and more nutrients than traditional juicers. The BELLA NutriPro uses a single pressing auger to get every bit of goodness from the juice with high quality precision and no loud spinning blades.
I finally took the BELLA NutriPro out of the box this weekend and Honey and I got busy making one of the quick recipes in the recipe booklet that came with the juicer. First I had to assemble the juicer. The instructions explained it perfectly and I had no problems. I was quite surprised at how heavy and sturdy the juicer is. Honey and I decided to try the Strawberry Lemonade.
The BELLA NutritPro Juicer was just as easy and quiet to use as it claims to be. Once it was all together and our fruit was cubed and ready Honey was able to do the juicing herself. It was interesting seeing how much juice was created and the rest that was eliminated. You have the option of a fruit strainer for even less pulp.
According to certified holistic health coach and raw foods chef Laurie Erdman, while our bodies do need fiber for a healthy digestive system, the advantage of cold press juicing is that ounce for ounce it yields more concentrated nutrients and enzymes—the fragile proteins that support nearly every body function—that your body can quickly absorb. Fiber can block the absorption of those healthy compounds, slowing digestion.
Like I said, for me the ability to get a days serving of veggies in one drink is very appealing. I have two juicers (or I did I gave one to my mom). Of the two of them I definitely prefer the BELLA NutriPro. I like that not only is it quiet but it is sturdy and a well built machine. I also really like that it is bladeless and yields more nutrients then some other juicers.
