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. Can you save money juicing at home? 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: On average, a cold press juice purchased from a juice bar is around $9.50. This was based on looking at price of juice bars across the major Australian cities.
$9.50 x 365 days = $3,467.50 per year
Scenario 2: DIY: A MOD Cold Press Juicer was purchased ($499) and each week a generous produce box worth $35 was delivered and used to to make one large juice per day each week.
First year: $499 + ($35 x 52 weeks) = $2,319
Every year after: $35 x 52 weeks = $1,820
Wow! So even with the purchase of the MOD Cold Press Juicer in the first year, you will save $1,148.50...and then you will continue to save $1,647.50 every year after that!
And that's not to mention, juicing at home has the added benefits of eliminating plastic and being left with the pulp which can be added into baking and cooking for an extra hit of fibre.
Did we also mention it makes great nut milk, saving you from suffering through the subpar supermarket stuff?
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 doable with MOD. Not only that, with your own MOD, you can also make your own healthy, refined sugar free sorbets!
MOD empowers you to take full control of your juice, and your health.
So what are you waiting for?
