Juice-making machines.

WOW! A friend bought us an un-used juicing machine at Goodwill the other day for about $10... that thing is amazing! We ended up buying a 25 pound bag of carrots for $7, and have been making mad quantities of carrot juice and then adding a bit of beet, tangello, and apple juice to it. Damn it's good! We've been using that as the base for our morning smoothies, which also have raspberries, mango, bannana, and some vanilla protein powder. Best $10 gift we ever got!

We just made a half gallon of juice in the last 10 minutes, for about $2.

Just sayin.

Well we'll revisit this in 6 months, I bet it will be in a cabinet corner collecting dust, just like mine is now.

I have one of the original Juiceman juicers from roughly 1993. I don't use it as much as I did before but it still works great.

Nope, my wife makes almost everything from scratch - including grinding the wheat berries she uses to make our sandwich bread.

Actually, the only difference between the juice and eating the fruit/veggie is that the actual fruit is a source of fiber. Claire has been saving a lot of the fiber and using it in bread. So, we don't really miss out on almost any of the nutrition. Plus, who wants to crunch on carrots for breakfast.
