Set that New Year’s weight loss resolution in motion with any of these three amazing health and wellness products.
Juicepresso Cold Press Juicer
Cold press juicing is done at a slow speed, so the juice never gets warm when the machinery spins. Of course, companies like Juicepresso also claim this process produces more juice and makes the nutrients last longer, and while my test was not that scientific, I was able to confirm several of the company’s other claims. It looks great: Check. It’s quiet for a juicer: Check. It’s easy to put together and take apart: Check and check.
I used the juicer for a few months and found the only hard part was not ending up with a sink full of pulp from inside the machine, but cleanup is never really that easy with any of these things. What I really love about this machine is that it takes up very little counter space (although it is too tall to store on, say, a pantry shelf). The parts are also really strong, and dishwasher safe. In my opinion, you get what you pay for with this one.
BlenderBottle Signature Sleek
My favorite bottle for bringing juice to work, the BlenderBottle has a wire whisk ball inside, which helps shake up the juice and/or break up lumpy protein powders, if that’s what’s inside. And while the ball is really a novelty, my favorite part is that the top is airtight, never leaking once in the five months I’ve used it. It’s also easy to clean, even if I forgot to rinse it for a couple of days (gross). It never kept any smells or stained, either.
Gym Gekko Workout Towel
Sharing machines at the gym can be gross. There’s sweat and germs and all sorts of nastiness, especially on the back rests. Enter the Gym Gekko, a colorful gym towel designed for you to lay over the back of a workout machine. How so? Well, it has hundreds of silicone dots on one side, which keep it stuck firmly in place as you push and pull your way to a buff physique. Outside of using it at the gym, I used them to wipe condensation off my car a couple of times, and it never got too saturated. The towels are available in cool colors like Gekko Green, Purple Power and Blue Steel.
