Juicing On A Budget
One of the biggest excuses I get from people is that they “can’t” juice because it’s too “expensive.”
In my opinion juicing fresh vegetables is a lot cheaper than paying a hospital bill. Prevention is key to disease and it’s always easier and cheaper to prevent a disease than to cure it.
Here are some tips on how to juice on a budget.
1. Juice Seasonal Produce
Often times seasonal produce is cheaper and it’s nice to change up the vegetables from time to time.

2. Buy in Bulk
I recently did this. I was so tired of going to the same grocery stores. I wanted produce that was certified organic, fresh and locally grown. So I did some research and found a great warehouse type of location in San Diego called Specialty Produce. This place was awesome. I walked into a refrigerator like room and picked out organic produce that came straight from a local farm. I really love supporting our local farms here in San Diego.
The best part was that I bought great produce for a fraction of the price that I would have had to spend at other grocery stores.
Do some research. If you don’t have a Specialty Produce type of place around your area then ask your local grocery if you can buy bulk produce. Often times bulk produce is less expensive.
3. Juice Frequently
If you need to save some money but still want to juice, try juicing 1-2 times a day instead of 3 times a day. Or try juicing everyday rather than 2 times a day. Remember juicing frequently is better than not juicing at all.

4. Add More Base
With every juice that I make, I start out with a base. A base is something that you add to get your juice going and creating sort of a foundation for the rest of your ingredients.
Vegetables like celery, romaine lettuce and carrots are inexpensive even when they are organic. These vegetables also produce a lot of juice, so you’re actually saving money.

5. Check Your Pulp
Also juice your pulp a couple of times. With some of the juicers out there on the market they don’t even juice dark leafy vegetables, they almost just chop it up so check your pulp. If your pulp feels and look choppy and wet throw it back it the juicer.

6. Check the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen
Do your research. Check out the dirty dozen and clean fifteen. These foods are rated according to EWG’s 2012 Shoppers Guide to Pesticides in Produce for the most and least pesticide residue.
Remember ALWAYS try to aim for certified organic. Pesticides are chemicals and when you juice vegetables you are instantly absorbing the juice and you sure don’t want pesticide residue in your juice.

Going on a simple 3-5 day juice fast is a great way to detox your body. When you juice dark green vegetables you are instantly getting high amount of nutrients and vitamins.
1. Many people ask me why they should juice when they could eat the vegetables or fruits. When you extract the juice from the vegetable all you are left with are beneficial micronutrients. Since your body doesn’t have to break down any components like insoluble fiber, your body is quickly absorbing micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and much more from the juice. That’s why often you get instant energy after having a juice!
2. Juicing also allows you to consume the needed vegetables and fruits that your body craves and needs for optimal health. If you find it difficult eating raw vegetables and fruit, then juicing is perfect for you. With juicing you are also getting a wide variety of different vegetables into your daily intake.
3. Juicing is a way to change the way you eat and will change the way you live. After you juice for a week, you will see and feel instant results. Often after the first week of the Alpha Reset, my clients tell me how much more energy they have, how their skin has improved and how much overall mental clarity they have. Also, a juice detox program like the Alpha Reset, can help you change your taste buds and quit bad habits like smoking.
During your fast make sure you juice dark leafy greens, lemons, ginger, watercress, dandelion greens and more. The Alpha Reset provides juice recipes so you don’t have to worry about knowing what to juice.
