People are ALWAYS asking me how to juice for less money. Here are a couple of tips for you!
Tip #1: My very favorite place to shop for produce is my local Asian or International market. The fruits and veggies are SO much less expensive than conventional supermarkets, and the produce variety is much better. Do a Google search to see if there’s one in your area, and then go explore!
Tip #2: I am a big fan of buying produce with the highest yield (meaning, the fruits and veggies that give ya the most juice). Even though I love adding kale to my green juices, I’ll use another high-yield veggie as a base. Here’s a list of some produce that’ll give you the biggest bang for your buck – mix and match at will!
- Citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, lemon)
- Cabbage (red and green)
These are the fruits and veggies that produce the most juice. By using these as a base for your recipes, you’ll stretch your dollar further.
Tip #3: If you want to buy organic produce on the cheap, hit the big box stores! As much as I ADORE Whole Foods, Costco and Walmart have great organic stuff for less.
And remember – I suggest only buying produce enough for 3-4 days worth of juice. Any more than that, you risk the chance of it going bad…and the LAST thing you want is to throw your hard-earned money in the trash.
Now, go forth and juice! And if you have any other tips, feel free to share them below in the comments!
