Making healthier choices everyday is sometimes a struggle for moms! We’re always on the go, have so little extra time and we often prioritize ourselves last. I’m always looking for tools and hacks that can help me indulge in the things I love the most, but that are simple and easy to use. I was so excited to get my hands on a Hurom juicer. I’ve heard so many amazing things about the machine and I couldn’t wait to experience it first hand!

I’ve heard that they are easy to clean, can make juices, smoothies AND ice cream (certain models) and they are absolutely gorgeous (so no need to try to hide it in a drawer when you’re not using it). They come in the most gorgeous colors, from rose gold to silver to black, so you’re guaranteed to find a model that fits in perfectly with your home’s style!

I tried the Hurom HZ Slow Juicer. It’s Hurom’s top-of-the-line juicer, made in stainless steel. It has a patented Slow Squeeze Technology that mimics that motion of a hand squeezing juice, so you’re guaranteed to have fresh juice that remains in its most natural state (and therefore packed with all the nutrients that you want your juice to have)! This juicer has all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a top-of-the-line juicer, such as a control lever and a fine and coarse strainer that allow you to control the amount of pulp in your juice, as well as parts that are made from quality materials. You feel it the minute you start to unbox it - the pieces are sturdy, heavy and able to withstand daily use (because it’s so amazing you’ll want to use it every day)!

One thing I noticed immediately, was how the pulp that came out of the machine was dry! I have a cheaper brand of juicer and I always feel like I’m wasting fruits and veggies because the pulp is wet, fleshy and filled with wasted juice! This is a problem I didn’t have with my Hurom!

As a busy mom on the go, one of my favorite features is how easy it was to clean. Other juicers that I have tried leak on my floor, take SO long to disassemble and wash and take forever to dry. The top fo this juicer detaches easily from the base, so it can be put in the sink, there is no leaking while you carry it, it comes apart in under 1 minute, and can be washed just as quickly! I major bonus was that is came with a drying rack so that I don’t have wet pieces all over my counter!

The Hurom HZ Slow Juicer works on everything you can imagine! Fruits, cruciferous vegetables, leafy greens, nuts and soybeans to create nutritious cold-pressed juices, milk, tofu, and more. I decided to try it out and make a juice and then ice cream! fruits, cruciferous vegetables, leafy greens, nuts and soybeans to create nutritious cold-pressed juices, milk, tofu, and more. I still can’t decide which I preferred! I made a delicious peach juice and added some sparkling water for an extra refreshing summer drink!

My juice was so delicious that I decided to make an ice cream smoothie bowl next! All you need is yogurt and frozen fruit! You’ll see below how incredible my smoothie bowl turned out! My final verdict? 10/10. This machine literally does it ALL. Smoothies, ice cream and slow pressed juice - there’s no reason to ever own another machine. It’s such good quality, so easy to clean and use, and the bonus is that it’s gorgeous too! Click here to visit Hurom’s website and check out the rest of their juicers!

Fave 3 Low Carb Keto Products of the Week!

Untitled design (1).png

I'm going to try to round up my fave Keto products every week and share them here! If you try them, leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!

1. KETO COFFEE

Ok confession time - I would not have survived my first week without this. It tastes delicious, is SO easy to make and it helps jumpstart you into ketosis and get that fat burning started! When I started my mornings with a Keto Coffee, I felt on track and ready to stick to my diet. If you're serious about your diet, I recommend buying a pack of 4 - you'll save money and not run out at the end of the month. I chose to have one every morning, but you could also alternate with your regular coffee and have one every other day! Click here for more info!

2. NUTIVA COCONUT FLOUR

With high protein and finer but low carbs, this flour will become your best friend in the kitchen. This week, most of my dinners were cooked with coconut flour! I was able to bread my chicken breast and even make cheese biscuits without the added carbs from regular flour. I totally recommend making coconut flour a staple in your kitchen during your Keto Diet. I used the Nutiva one because of the low carbs, but I'm sure there are other awesome ones out there too! Let me know below if you have a fave.

3. All Yum Onion Chips

These Sea Salt Onion Chips were a saviour this week when I wanted nothing more than to sit on my couch and devour a bag of popcorn. They are delicious, gluten free, low in carbs and a perfect treat to curb your cravings for starchy foods! My fave was the Ranch flavour. Click here to visit their site!
