Increase your Fruit & Veggie Intake with a Juicer

When I started to get real serious about my health, one thing I realized quick was I was not eating enough good stuff. I was not drinking enough water daily and my fruits and vegetables, even though I was eating them,. were no where near enough. Have you ever looked at the Canada’s Food Guide to see what you should actually be eating?

A woman my age should be eating 7-8 servings a day of fruits and veggies. Where my kids depending on age should be having 5-8. They eat very little vegetables and just a few fruits. It is an ongoing fight here really. I often have to hide things in recipes to get them to eat.

Since this was an obvious issue I was looking into ways to easily add more to my diet and my family’s meals. I add fruit to smoothies and really enjoy that. But often they are thick and filling, not refreshing and light like a glass of water. I have been drinking more water too but wanted something else. Concentrated juices and packaged juices are full of sugar and add to my calories daily. I am trying my best to stay away from these.

When Breville asked me if I wanted to review one of their products, I knew this was my chance. I chose The Juice Fountain Cold knowing it would be perfect for the changes I was making.

For anyone that’s conscious of their own health and wellness, gift them with the juicer of all juicers. The Juice FountainTM Cold uses Cold Spin TechnologyTM to ensure insignificant heat transfer when juicing. Heat and processing can damage the precious vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables. Thanks to Cold Spin TechnologyTM, together with titanium-reinforced blades and Italian-made precision mesh filter, dad can enjoy a higher concentration of vital vitamins, minerals and enzymes preserved by minimizing heat. What’s more, the Elevated Juicing System and two-litre juice jug is super-sized, allowing you to prepare large batches of juice for the week or to enjoy with family. The Seal and Store juice jug keeps refrigerated juice fresher for longer. For easy, on-the-go convenience, the unit also features a juice nozzle attachment that allows you to juice straight into a cup or travel thermos. Breville’s Juice FountainTM Cold is sure to keep you all hydrated and energized.

Now I can make juices and get my veggie and fruit numbers up. I can drink them and not eat them so I feel energized and refreshed not full.

The Juice Fountain Cold

Price $269.99

Breville Juice Fountain™ Cold* with Cold Spin Technology™* allows juice to flow up and through the patent pending Elevated Juicing System. So instead of making just a small amount of juice, you can make up to 70 fl. oz. (2 liters) of juice at a time. The Seal and Store Juice jug can be stored directly in the door of your refrigerator and its sealed lid keeps juice fresher for longer. Juice can be kept fresh for up to 3 days++ in the refrigerator either in the juice jug or in small, single serve glass canning jars. When you juice more and store it, you can juice less often. This saves time on prep and cleanup and makes drinking your daily glass of homemade juice exceptionally convenient.

Heat and processing can damage delicate vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables. But, with Cold Spin Technology* and an Italian-made precision mesh filter, independent laboratory tests have shown that juice is extracted as “cold” as cold press juice with less than 1.8°F temperature transfer+.

A powerful and efficient 850-watt motor generating up to 13,000 rpm processing speed makes it easy to process the toughest fruits and vegetables in a fraction of a second. The large feed chute means you can juice whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting which significantly reduces prep and clean-up time. The juicer comes with a nozzle attachment so you can juice straight into a glass and includes a brush for easy clean-up.

Juice more, store more, clean less.

This unit makes turning my favourite fruits int a juice a breeze. A yummy recipe I came across is below (there are tonnes online)

Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

6 carrots

4 apples

2 in piece of ginger

Wash all of the products then add into the juicer.

Serves 4 large glasses.

Carrot Juice

When you make juice there is often pulp leftover. What do you do with it? Many people said they add it to baking recipes for added fibre. I am going to give that a try.

Breville products are great for families like mine who are looking to make their lives easier. They have a wide selection to meet your needs. You can find them at a store near you (available at The Bay and Sears) as well as online. Check them out for more info www.breville.ca

  1. This is the juicer I have and I absolutely love it! I’ve been juicing for 7 months now, three glasses a day. This juicer makes it so easy. I juice once every 3 days and make enough to last. Try orange, pineapple, carrot, sweet potato, ginger and turmeric root if you want to use it.

  2. I do juice – almost the same one every time – apple, lemon, carrot, celery, spinach, ginger, cucumber, chard. It is so good. I hadn’t thought of the canning jars and will give them a try.

  3. not sure if I’d use aa juicer but I think I’d use that machine that you put frozen fruit through lol

    There are some great recipes out there and it’s a great way to get healthy fruit and vegetables into your system. I don’t have a juicer yet but it’s on my list 🙂

  6. Thanks for the review! I have been wanting to purchase a juicer for a while now but had been unsure of which one to buy. I think I will have to give this one a try!

  7. I really like that it keeps the veggies cold while processing. That makes it nicer to drink and healthier.

  8. I haven’t started juicing, but this post makes me want to check it out more!
