It is sleek, smart, and will cost you an arm and a leg. How it works: Insert the package of organic fruit/veggies (shipped to you by the company) … More Juicero: useful or excessive?
This post is about something I’ve kept to myself for a long time. I haven’t outwardly told anyone, not even close friends or family, about this thing I’ve been doing every day for the past few years.
