Beets are a superfood that helps detoxify the skin and kidneys. They contain essential folic acid and are filled with betacyanin, which is known to prevent cancer and increase exercise endurance. I even put together a quick guide detailing the health benefits from beets.

Tip: Wash and rinse the beets well with a strainer and cut them into pieces that will fit into the juicer.

As a certified fitness coach, I get tons of questions every year about what helps you lose weight the fastest, but my approach to nutrition is simple: I try to eat from a plant, tree, or animal at every meal. Fruits and vegetables are a non-negotiable for me!

I avoid highly processed or pre-prepared foods as much as possible. I also avoid quick-fix detoxes, radical cleanses, or empty promises from companies trying to cash in — because I believe that if you eat well, your body will take care of itself.

I don’t recommend a juicing meal plan and do not advocate juice cleanses or fasts that eliminate whole foods. But drinking fresh juice alongside healthy small meals and other eating habits is an easy way to ensure you get your recommended servings of fruits and vegetables and boost your overall wellness.

Juicing is the quickest, most delicious way to add nutrients to your body and help you feel totally energized. (Oh, and it tastes great!) You may be surprised as to how easily you, too, will become obsessed with this healthy habit.

By extracting the natural juices from fresh produce, you can enjoy a concentrated dose of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are easily absorbed by your body.

Here are some of the biggest benefits of juicing:

Boosts Your Immune SystemThe vitamins and antioxidants you get from fresh fruits and vegetables can help strengthen your immune system, making it more efficient in fighting off illness and disease.Increases Nutrient IntakeJuicing allows you to consume a higher quantity of fruits and vegetables in one sitting, increasing your intake of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.Improves DigestionThe juicing process results in a liquid that is easy for your body to digest, meaning nutrients are absorbed more quickly and efficiently.Detoxifies and CleansesMany fruits and vegetables contain natural detoxifying properties that can help flush out harmful substances from your body.Enhances Energy LevelsThe vitamins and minerals in fresh juices can provide a natural energy boost without relying on caffeine or sugar.Improves Skin HealthThe vitamins and antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables offer hydrating and nourishing properties that contribute to a healthy complexion and youthful glow, just like my favorite skin care products for women over 50!Reduces InflammationCertain fruits and vegetables used in juicing, such as ginger, turmeric, and leafy greens, contain anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the body

Ready to get started with juicing? Use the following beginner tips for juicing to get the best benefits for your overall health.

1. Read Your Manual

Typically, I’m not a huge fan of “reading directions,” and mostly just figure appliances out independently. Trust me; you should really read the manual in this case!

My juicer comes with a low and high setting that I can adjust for different vegetables — my manual lists those veggies and what speed they should be juiced at for optimal results.

Also, if you get a big daddy juicer like I have, you need to make sure all the pieces are together correctly so you don’t accidentally juice a finger.

2. Balance Fruit With Veggies

Try to use the 80/20 rule for juicing — 80% veggies and 20% fruit to keep sugar content low. You will also want to remove any skins that are inedible (such as mango skin and citrus peels), large seeds, or pits and wash all of your produce well.

3. Drink Right Away

The point of juicing is to enjoy the fresh juice right away. Fresh juice will lose nutrients as it oxidizes, so plan to drink your juice immediately after making it. If you have extra or can’t drink it all at once, store your juice in an airtight container like a thermos or mason jar, filling it to the top and making sure it’s sealed.

Make sure to refrigerate it ASAP. Fresh juice will keep for up to 24 hours, but I try to drink mine in under 12.

I typically drink my juice for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up. Drinking juice on an empty stomach is best as those nutrients are absorbed right away, and don’t have to fight with other foods your body is trying to digest at the same time.

4. Have Fun!

I have tried tons of juice recipes and then made my own adaptations based on my taste. Try new fruits and vegetables and get your friends and family involved. Don’t be afraid to experiment with cooky concoctions.

Who knows? Maybe beet and broccoli are the next big thing!

Juicing machines can vary drastically by price, so I’m going to breakdown the best juicing machines that work best, at every budget level.

Juicer Machine Price Ranges by Budget:

Affordable Juicer$60-$150Mid-Range Juicer$150-$400Commercial Grade Juicer$200-$1,000+

I know many sites offer refurbished juicers as well, so that is an option if you don’t want to buy new ones.

Here are my favorite juicer options by budget type:

Affordable Juicer 

When it comes to affordable juicers, this is the best selling juicer on Amazon. And if you are like me, I am convinced when there are over 2,000 good reviews!

I did order this one for my mother-in-law a few years back, and she still uses it and likes it!

Mid-Range Juicer

A middle-of-the-road option is the Breville Juice Fountain Plus at 850 watts, that retails for around $150. Breville is probably the best-known name in juicers and stands for quality.

Commercial Grade Juicer

A little more pricey is the Breville Juice Fountain Elite, with 1,000 watts of rocket-like power. This is a commercial-grade juicer, so if you plan to juice a ton, this is the juicer for you. It retails for $299, so it’s pricey.

I bought this juicer 15 years ago, and although it wasn’t cheap, it may be one of the best investments I have ever made.

The bottom line? Juicing is a flexible and customizable practice!

Feel free to mix and match ingredients and juicers according to your preferences and dietary needs. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing green juice, a colorful fruit juice, or an energizing boost, there’s a recipe for everyone.
