Today I'd like to follow up on my juicer purchase post and show you the different juices we made yesterday with my daughter.
You may want to read the post I wrote a couple of days ago showing you the juicer I purchased and how I came to juicing: I Invested in a Kuvings Cold Press Juicer!
In this post I am going to show you 3 different juices we made to accommodate everyone's taste and my test with the ozone generator machine that came free with the Kuvings Cold Press Juicer.
3 Veggie and Fruit Juices + Ozone Generator Machine
This is the second day I am using the Kuvings cold press juicer and I absolutely love it. It is very quiet, clean to operate, easy to clean and the juices it makes are excellent.
When I started juicing with the centrifugal juicer, all the juices I made that contained green vegetables were drinkable, but not very tasty. There was a little voice always telling me, "You got to finish that juice!"
Now, you have to stop me or I finish the whole bottle on the spot!
I don't know how this is possible, but all the juices I made, even with vegetables I do not like that much like tomatoes, broccoli and cucumbers were succulent.
Now, if you want to get into juicing I will definitely recommend a masticating juicer or slow juicer like I have because the difference in taste for the juice is like day and night. I know the cold press juicer is much more expensive, but if you can put that on a credit card or get some sort of consumer credit, then do it.
1) My morning green juice with fruits
This is the first juice I made in the morning for my wife and I.
Fruits: orange, limes, apples and papaya.
Vegetables: carrots, cucumber, zucchini, coriander, ginger and a kind of Chinese kale.
Let's the juicer do its magic!
As you can see it's a lot of juice and very dry waste.
The ginger added some hot flavor to the mix and it was excellent. We each had a class in the morning.
2) Testing the Ozone generator machine.
I was very excited to have this ozone generator machine at first because I didn't know that you could wash away all pesticides and other microbes that way.
To start cleaning the produce, you plug in the machine to power, attach a tube to it that has a small ball at the other end and that you drop in the water. You select 20 minutes and then wait.
The machine manufacturer and other documentation say that the ozone will clean all produce from pesticides, but after researching it, I do not think it's a good idea.
Not a good idea because the ozone gets rid of the pesticides, but also some of the nutrients in the produce, which is not ideal and there is no proof or studies showing that this is working better than washing the produce with plain water.
The purpose of using a cold press juicer is to keep all the nutrients in the vegetables and fruits and this would be silly to remove them then with an ozone generator machine.

If you have a different opinion or experience on that, would you please explain in the comment section and point me to relevant articles?
3) My daughter's fruit juice
Now my daughter has something new she likes to do after school. I let her choose the produce she wants for her juice and this time she wanted to try a cucumber.
Fruits: orange, apples and cucumber.
She is really enjoying the process to make her own juice and that makes me very happy.
As you can see this juice is very beautiful and I can tell you it was tasty.
Two half glasses that were finished in no time!
This was yesterday and today she made a similar new juice that is as good.
4) My evening green juice
For the evening I decided to make a green juice and this is what was inside.
Vegetables: celery, cucumber and coriander.
Fruits: orange and apple.
Beautiful color and excellent taste.
I will have this one this evening and tomorrow morning if I can resist drinking it all. If I do, I will make a new juice in the morning.
I wanted to write this post because I am like a kid with a new toy, and taste buds, discovering that vegetables can taste great.
