As you all know, I just bought my juicer. Yay. Well it arrived at our home today, as did my glass bottles. Mr. CrazyRichLife and I went to the store to get me my first batch of fruits and veggies. We spent $53.64 – Not bad for a week’s worth of juicing.
Romaine Lettuce – $3.98
Spinach – $4.48
Cucumber – $3.98 X 2 = $7.96
Celery – $2.68 X 2 = $5.36
Carrots – $2.98 X 3 = $8.94
Garlic 3lbs Peeled – $5.98
Pears 5lbs – $5.98
Limes 5lbs – $3.98
Apples 5lbs – $6.98
Total (no tax for produce – YAY) = $53.64
One bag of carrots is for a friend who asked me to get them for her. She gave me $3 for it so my real total comes out to $50.64. I did have a few berries at the house already that I can add to my juices so the cost of those aren’t included.. Also, the garlic should last a few months and it’s more for cooking than for juicing. I might try a few recipes with garlic but not very many. So my 1 week juicing cleanse comes out to $44.66. Not bad, especially considering the fact that a 3 day cleanse I was going to purchase was going to cost me $147.The only thing left is that I need to go and get some grapefruit, green apples, and some tomatoes at the supermarket. I’m also thinking of getting some loose leaf tea to help me in between “meals”
I went back to the store to pick a few more items. I realized that I need more variety. Also, juicing takes a LOT of fruits and veggies. I spent another $30 buying grapes, watermelon, grapefruit, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and lemons.
Have you ever juiced before? Did you think it was expensive? Check back next week to see my day to day breakdown and to read my ups and downs in my Juicing Diary.
