Buy or DIY | Cold Pressed Juice on a Shoestring
Sep 09, 2015
We took time out this week to investigate the cost of buying a daily cold pressed juice versus making your own at home with the Mod Cold Press Juicer. The results are in, and they are staggering.
Why cold pressed?
Cold pressed juices have grown in popularity over the past couple of years, and rightly so. They taste amazing, have far more vitamins and minerals than conventional juices and represent one of the easiest ways for your body to absorb nutrients. They can help us to manage our weight, to detoxify and to cleanse. They also fit neatly into even the busiest of lifestyles, and can tempt the pickiest of palates.
For many of us, enjoying foods and activities that promote our wellness is a priority, and one we are willing to invest in. But could you possibly be saving money, without compromising - and perhaps even improving - your health?
To find out, we calculated the cost of enjoying one cold pressed juice a day, for a year.
Buy or DIY
- Scenario 1: Buy: Juice was bought from a juice bar for $9.50 per beverage, per day, for one year (average cost for major Aussie cities- sometimes much higher!!)
- Scenario 2: DIY: Juice was made at home, and factored in purchasing and using the Mod Cold Press Juicer ($499) plus a generous $35 juicing box of produce per week for one year - enough to make at least 1 if not more juices per day (average cost major Aussie city large juicing box).
The results are in. By adopting scenario 2 and DIY with Mod Cold Press Juicer, you would...
Save $1149 over the year AND own your own juicer. For each year after, you would save $1648!
Other benefits of DIY?
In addition to saving this hefty sum, juicing at home allows you to take full control over the quality of your produce, your recipes, your ingredients - all when YOU want it. Only like to shop organic or local? Hate beetroot? Allergic to ginger? Want to start a detox IMMEDIATELY after a rather big weekend? All totally do-able with Mod. Not only that, with your own Mod, you can also make your own health sorbets and natural nut milks. More wellness, more savings.
Mod empowers you to take full control of your juice, and your destiny.
So what are you waiting for?
Until next time.
