Yes.

I enjoy nearly all the fruit juices but find that the vegetable juices are
very unpalatable.
Any tips on how to make them more appealing?


Have you tried fresh carrot juice? A lot of people are used to the
sweetness of fruit juices, and are put off by the richer tastes of
certain veggie juices. Carrots are fairly sweet and make a good base for
mixed vegetable juice, especially if you add greens (which tend to be
kind of bitter). The other way to make veggies juices more appealing is
to throw in an apple or two.

I am hoping to buy a masticating juicer, when funds allow. Is it worth it
and is one model better than another?


I use a Champion juicer, and have had it for over 20 years; Champions
are built to last (mine weighs at least 15 pounds). The only thing I
don't like about it is cleaning it, but it's not really a hassle. Other
people here seem happy with other less expensive juicers. The extruded
pulp from my fruits and veggies is very dry, so I know I get excellent
extraction. The pulp can be used in cooking, but you'll end up with more
pulp than you can eat if you juice regularly. It makes good compost.

I am a UK resident so there may be limits on where I can buy one.


Champion ships to the UK. Check with other manufacturers to see if their
models are compatible. You have plenty of options, it just depends what
you're willing to spend and how long you want yours to last. Quality has
a price. It would cost me $300 to replace my Champion, but (as I said)
the one I have now has lasted over 20 years without ANY trouble. That's
less than $15 a year -- less than some of my friends have spent with
their "cheaper" juicers.

I would also appreciate any suggestions for juicing websites.


Many sites are filled with information designed to sell you a particular
model, and raw-activist sites are filled with outlandish claims about
the benefits of juicing. I'm all for juicing, but you have to remember
that juice is a form of concentrated calories with most of the
beneficial fiber removed.

Everything in moderation.

Default Advice about juicers

I juice every day- carrot and celery-stick in other stuff..I had an
expensive juice and gave it away-I have a inexpensive Juiceman -cost $60.
When you buy a juicer make sure the hole that you put stuff in is large
enough or you will cutting up everything you juice-that is a hassle-that is
why I settled on a juiceman-very very easy to clean and a big hole to stick
carrots in..

Hello - Im sorry unfortunately we are not able to ship to Great Britain and
Im not aware of a vendor in that area.

The Juiceman Jr. from that site I gave you -said they will not ship to Great
Britain-they must sell a good one in the UK--Maybe Mr. Falafel knows..

Default Advice about juicers

I had an acme, upgraded to a champion, and now use a twin screw Green Star.
It is MUCH
better at leafy greens. Start with carrots, beets, and gradually add things
like kale and collard
greens as you get used to it. Collard Greens are the best source of calcium on
the planet, especially
juiced. Add an apple to sweeten it up.

See

http://www.discountjuicers.com/compare.html

for a great comparison of juicers.
