Recently I found apple mint at a health food store. It smelled wonderful and juiced well. Most of the time I find spearmint in the produce section which smells overbearing. Mint grows easily and pops up in my garden every year. Now I’m on the hunt for apple mint for my garden. For the Beet Orange Apple Juice add a small amount of mint or ginger depending on your mood.
BEET ORANGE APPLE JUICE 1 golden beet 1 cara cara orange 1 apple-Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or Gala 1 mint sprig or 1-inch ginger
Directions: I use a MMV700 Omega juicer. Wash and cut produce into 1-inch pieces. Do cut the skin off the orange. Slowly feed the juicer to get the most juice. Add ginger or mint.

I bought my parents an Omega JC3000 juicer in a pretty white with gold trim which is also sold in red or silver. Back in 2019 when I bought my first Omega juicer they didn’t have anything affordable. I had to bite the bullet. I love my juicer which is a MMV700 MegaMouth. I will compare Omega’s most affordable juicer to their high-end juicer.
Just like my MMV700 MegaMouth juicer the JC3000 kicked my butt. It seems I always have trouble putting a juicer together when I first get it. The JC3000 isn’t like the MegaMouth. The JC3000 is tiny but mighty. It’s a tad more electronic than the MegaMouth. We read the directions and put the juicer together, but the lights wouldn’t come on for the numbers on the side that is above the on button, the two speed button, and the forward and backward button. I called Omega and they had me email them a photo of the juicer put together and a video of me trying to turn it on. They said I didn’t have the hopper on right, which is the lid. So the back of the juicer makes it seem like the hopper won’t fit but it does. Then days later my dad figured out that when the hopper goes on correctly a “beep” sounds. It didn’t do that for me, but apparently with the JC3000 model that’s what is supposed to happen, which is not in the directions. Now that my dad has figured it out he is happily juicing. He has the same enthusiasm I do and can’t wait to juice more than carrots. Now we are having fun sending photos of our full twisty juice jars.
I love juicing. There is something relaxing about it. And I am pleased with the JC3000. The bowl and all the top parts that juice are smaller than my juicer, but they are pretty amazing. I am able to get four 16-ounce mason jars full of juice. With my MegaMouth I am able to juice seven or eight 16-ounce mason jars depending on how small I cut the veggies and fruits and how slow I drop in the produce.
Two things to consider when buying a juicer: price and parts. My juicer was something like $550 a few years back, but it’s amazing. The JC3000 is just as amazing, but doesn’t juice as much. If you’re juicing for one or two people either are good. I like my MMV700 MegaMouth because I can juice once a week and have one juice each morning. So it’s a time saver. The other thing is Omega is the only juicer that sells parts on their website. When I bought my juicer the bowl leaked. Because I bought my juicer from omegajuicer.com I was able to get a replacement part mailed to me in a week for free. It was the wrong part, but the lady sent another part and then all was good. So now if I juice 7 juices there is some leakage when I lift the bowl to clean it. I don’t know if that is normal. My juicer has a warranty so I should be able to get a new part. Also it looks like the MMV700S MegaMouth has replaced the MMV700 MegaMouth. Maybe they fixed the leaking. The JC3000 does not leak. And the JC3000 was only $163 with shipping and taxes. For what it does that is really awesome. A third factor that might be important to you is the MegaMouth is 12 pounds. The JC3000 is 8 pounds. The JC3000 shoot is also narrow and would be safe for children. And as I write, the JC3000 is on sale at $99! The two juicers I am talking about are vertical and I find easy to store. In fact, my dad is able to put the JC3000 together and store it, which makes for quick juicing. Also the H3000 in black or red, a horizontal juicer, is on sale for $99. I have never seen these juicers on sale.
Omega is supposed to be the best. It’s a tough decision because of the expense. I don’t need vitamins because the juicer cracks open the vitamins and minerals that just don’t happen with chewing. And I would have to eat two kale leaves, one cup of spinach, one lemon, one apple, and half a cucumber. I wouldn’t want to chew that for breakfast, but mixed in a drink—it’s delicious.
Another concern you may have is the cost of the juice. I figured out it is roughly about $6 per 16-ounce juice. In a 31-day month that is $186. I was easily spending that in vitamins each month. Now I’m not. I feel better too because my vitamins come from live, not overly processed food. If you don’t like veggies you’ll loved them juiced.
The juicers also come with a recipe book. And the delivery time was about a week for the JC3000 which I ordered in February. So go catch that sale at Omega Juicers. If you still can’t decide John on DiscountJuicers YouTube Channel makes entertaining juicing videos and sells different kinds of juicers at DiscountJuicers.com. And here are the Mason jars I like on Amazon. I hope this helps someone who is thinking about buying a juicer. I do not get paid to say this. I just find joy in juicing. I hope you do too.
And Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! May you have luck with a mermaid!
