Water or Gasoline

right now rawSometimes it can really be difficult to choose the healthiest juice when we are bombarded with so much advertising that proclaims their product is best. One thing I learned from Joe Cross when he was answering questions about the freshness of juice is that he has scale. At one end of the spectrum is water, at the other end is gasoline. One is great for us, and one would kill us! Where does your juice fit on his scale?

I have my beloved Breville Juicer and I place my juice right up there at the healthy water spot. But, there are times when we need to grab a juice on the go. What’s a raw mom to do? I always hunt for a fresh juice bar, if I fail to locate one, it is off to the store. This is where it gets complicated.

right now rawWhat is all the buzz about cold pressed juice? The best part about choosing cold pressed is minimal heat, and air exposure helps to keep more vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in the juice. Not to mention, the taste is so fresh even with a shelf life. When someone asked the juice man himself, where Suja juice fell on his scale, he quickly answered, “Right up there with water.”

I love this because Costco has Suja juice for a great price and it’s  perfect for my husband to take to his office. They also carry 3 day juice cleanses for a really reasonable price. So, when in doubt, don’t throw it out, head to the refrigerator section, and choose cold pressed. You will be glad you did!

  1. We have a breville juicer and love it but don’t always have time. We have been talking about renewing our Costco membership looks like we have another reason now.

    1. Surprisingly, they have a lot of organic options at Costco. Time is always a factor when juicing. If you juice a large amount it will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 72 hours, it must be in an airtight container. Thanks for sharing! Juice on!
