Juicing is my new Fad

I know it has been some time since the last time I wrote, but I have been incredibly busy.  The lack of energy due to medications and long work hours has just become typical.  Enter Netflix and its all around crapulent collection of shows and I happen upon a movie that I may never have watched otherwise.  The movie is called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and it chronicles the journey of two men as the try to lose weight and better their health.  I am really not trying to lose weight.  I don't need to lose weight.  What struck me with this movie is that it made me realize that I had NEVER thought to use a juicer before.  Being an ex-Vegan -- by doctor mandate -- I was apprehensive and happy all at the same time as I thought about those vegetable and fruit flavors that I haven't been able to partake of in years.

So after about six to eight weeks of research, reading reviews, and making retail store associates give me permission to play with juicers in-store, I finally found the Hurom juicer at Williams-Sonoma.  I have been using it for over a week, and I am amazed at just how much better I am already starting to feel.  While the Hurom is advertised as a "slow juicer," please keep in mind that everything in life is relative.  It moves slower than other juicers, it is not actually slow.  Either way, I am now out of broccoli as I have juiced and drank it all.  Broccoli juice brings me one step closer to Nirvana.
