Juicer a.k.a. Kris Carr

Dear BFF,

I just wanted to take this moment to introduce you to my new juicer, Kris Carr. I have named her Kris Carr after the person Kris Carr a.k.a. The Vegan Juicing Goddess Extraordinaire. The person Kris Carr spoke at Farm Sanctuary this summer & inspired me to invest in a good juicer. So here she is!

Isn't she pretty? I'm in love! She is an Omega 8006 masticating juicer. I wanted a middle of the line juicer (read: didn't want to pay $500+), but I wanted to be able to make juice & store it at least overnight so I don't have to juice everyday (read: lazy). The masticating juicer slowly "chews" up the veggies, squeezing out all the vitaminy goodness. Kris Carr actually sounds like a little bunny chewing on her veggies! This allows the juice to sit awhile before losing all the nutrients. Masticating juicers also yield more juice, more nutrients & enzymes, less foam & can be stored in the fridge for a day or so...perfect! All pieces-parts are dishwasher safe on top rack (bonus!), so she's super easy to clean. I love my green juice!!! Thanks Kris Carr (juicer and person!)!

Kale, romaine, broccoli, pea sprouts, pears, ginger, cucumber, celery.


  1. Let me know how you like it - I really want a juice extractor, and there are so many out there. Reading the reviews on every single one is overwhelming.

  2. I really really love it! She also makes pasta! the only "problem" is that you have to cut everything fairly skinny because she has a narrow mouth...that's my only "complaint".

  3. As you know from the Facebook I am now the proud owner of an Omega 8004, a birthday gift from my awesome boyfriend. Thanks so much for making me aware of masticating juicers - I had zero experience with them before reading your blog, and discussing this post with Chris led to an amazing birthday present. We are off to the grocery store soon to buy some supplies for my juicing frenzy!
