Hi, I'm looking for a good juicer that can handle both fruits and veggies. I really don't want to spend over $50 though. Is this doable?

I'd suggest picking one up from a thrift store or Craigslist. You could get some for $15 and try out your new food interest! [I read your other post before coming here, btw].

hmm, not a bad idea. Except for the thought of using a used juicer sounds kind of icky. : )

You should be able to get one from Wal-Mart for that price. Check out there website. I am sure they will have something that will work well and fits your budget.

Amazon is a good place to do research, read reviews from customers to find out about the product, then look around at Walmart, Target etc as well to check prices..
Amazon.com: $25-$49 - Juicers / Small Appliances: Kitchen & Dining

thanks guys! I'm looking at the Juiceman Jr. at Target, close to $50. It has overall good reviews, and sounds like it'd be good for a beginner anyway. I love Target's return policy. Bed Bath and Beyond has a lot of selection, but the ones they are offering have bad ratings! It is tough to find them. I'll look at Amazon though now that I know which brand I'm looking for. I think! haha

I'm thinking of getting one myself. I'm tired of having to check every single juice in the store for high fructose corn syrup. I bought some pomegranate juice a few days ago and it turns out pear juice was the first ingredient.

That is why I started juicing. It is much healthier for you and you will notice a difference in how you feel.

I'd like to get creative, beyond the grocery store. I love V8 but it can get gicky. I want to do things with carrots, celery, and who knows? But yeah, it blows when you pick up a juice and find it's not just juice but a million additives.

Can I just suggest that you spend another $10 and get the Juiceman from Target? I have it, love it and the ONLY problem I had was in taking it apart for cleaning, there are slots that the metal strainer slides onto and they really would stick! I had my fiance "file" down the little prongs that hold it on just a little bit and now, NO problem.

I juice a lot and have lost weight, feel great and have lots more energy. It's been a very positive and fun experience for me just being able to create new juices. Things you wouldn't even think taste good mixed, really do!

I'd be happy to give out some pointers for recipes for anyone intersted. I even did a 3-day fasting juice over the weekend recently and you would be surprised with juicing, you are not hungry at all! It's so great.

Anyhoo, good luck whatever you do, you can find a crap load of recipes on line and just be creative! Your staple fruits and veggies are going to be carrots and apples, they are the base of almost every recipe.

Good luck!
