Omega Juicers

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 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 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!

Happy Juicing and Happy Vegan!

Apple Lemon Ginger Juice

When it gets to the end of the week I usually run out of veggies to juice, raw juice. Apples are usually left over since they stay fresh longer. Raw juice is how I get my vitamins and minerals and all those other important nutrients I don’t think about.

Apples contain vitamins A and C, phosphorus, iron flavonoids, and calcium. Apples are great for sweetening juice plus they are low on the glycemic index. They control insulin levels because they slowly release sugars into the bloodstream. Apples reduce intestinal disorders, including diverticulitis, and some types of cancers. Apples aid in detoxifying and removing heavy metals like lead and mercury. Much of this information is according to The Ultimate Book of Modern Juicing by Mimi Kirk.

Lemons are antibacterial, antiviral, and immune boosting. They kill the bacteria that cause acne. They contain vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, magnesium, and limonene, which promote immunity and fights infections. They help with strong bones and cartilage. I know people think juice and particularly lemons destroy the enamel on their teeth. Lemons help with the development of strong teeth and gums.

My acupuncturist drinks three lemons with a glass of water every morning. Medical Medium, Yoga Lifestyle with Melissa, and Author Mimi Kirk all suggest lemon water first thing in the morning to clean out the body. According to Author Mimi Kirk, “Lemon water helps to alkalize the body and clear toxins that accumulate overnight in our digestive system.” Anthony Williams in Medical Medium Celery Juice says about drinking half a lemon in 16 to 32-ounces of water, “This gives the liver a cleansing first thing in the morning.” Yogi Melissa West says, “Warm lemon water can help stimulate the cleansing of your liver.”

As I’ve mentioned before, I like to keep some peel on because lemon peel has calcium, potassium, vitamins A and C, and helps heal wounds.

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and a great immunity booster.

Apple Lemon Ginger Juice Recipe
3 Braeburn apples
1 Meyer lemon
1-inch ginger root

Yield: 16-ounces

I use my MMV700 Omega juicer. Cut up apple into slices. Cut off some of the skin of the lemon and then half the lemon. Slowly drop in apples, ginger, and then lemon. I juice at least a piece of lemon last to get the pulp off the auger and through the screen. Apples can make mush if you juice them too fast.

Food for Thought:
Did you see the news this week about a livestock ship capsizing in the typhoon? Bloomberg Next China headline reads, “A search operation is on for a cargo ship carrying 43 crew and 5,800 cows that went missing in a typhoon off Japan.” One crewmember was found. An animal activist tweeted “Omg!! 6000 cows on a ship!? So sad for each of them.” Then someone responded, “Nothing for the 43 humans?” Every vegan and animal lover is different. It’s not that vegans don’t care about people. The people knew what they were doing and transported livestock by choice. I have talked about some fishermen on foreign ships held as slaves in my books, but still they had a choice getting on that ship. The point is the cows did not have a choice. Why would you travel through a typhoon anyway?

Go deeper and see that all the abnormal weather right now is weather warfare. If the crewmembers were aware of the weather being manipulated, they may not have gotten on that ship.

There are vegans who fight for all life. Elana Freeland, who is a vegan, writes and speaks about geoengineering and 5G. She looks at the big picture and thinks for herself.

Humans have it equally as bad as the animals. The human trafficking doesn’t go unnoticed, but the mainstream media doesn’t want to focus on it because they are covering up for the people who pay them. Sarah Westall has done many videos on human trafficking and the pedophile ring.

A lot of what is going on isn’t hidden. It’s easy to find photos and articles on sites like Hollywood Insider and Business Insider. There are many photos of Trump and Melania with Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein. While working at Mir-a-Lago, President Trump’s Palm Beach resort, Ghislaine recruited girls for Jeffrey into his sex trafficking operation. And I could point out all the times The Donald disrespected women, but I think his connection to a sex trafficking ring is damning enough. I’m all for equality. Let’s not forget Creepy Joe.

Joe Biden and his accuser Actress Tara Reade story made it to mainstream news. She was a staff assistant in his Senate office in early 1990s. It was a confusing report of he said she said. But I do remember recently Biden describing how beautiful his friend’s daughter was. And then there are the countless times he whispered into women and young girl’s ears.

In my mind, these topics connected so much better.

People tell me they can’t keep up with all the information and don’t know what to believe. The mainstream news is meant to confuse us. When I research a topic, it bleeds into other topics. Many people fear information especially when it’s the truth. Sarah Westall calls it “Truth Trauma.” Disinformation and fear are used to control us. Doing the research helps me to remember to not give these “leaders” my power.

Happy Juicing!
