More fun than an exercise machine

The Omega Nutrition Center does much more than juice.

A healthy gadget that would actually get used. Omega

There is always room on the shelf for one more kitchen appliance. If that appliance has the capability to encourage a healthy lifestyle, then that one extra appliance could be worth its weight in gold. (Or at least worth its weight in terms of shed pounds.) It's not uncommon for people--and I certainly am no exception--to utter promises of getting back into shape, or eating healthier in general. More often than not, these promises fall by the wayside.

The Omega Nutrition Center is a professional style juicer that would look great on any countertop. The "masticating-style" juicer is capable of producing results similar to that of a pulp ejection system or that of a centrifugal style machine. Adding versatility, the nutrition center also adds the capability to juice wheatgrass and leafy greens. Expanding the usability beyond juice, the appliance can extrude pasta, homogenize foods for nut butters or baby food, and even operate as a chopper or grinder.

All the necessary accessories are included. Easy to use, the machine can make everything from soymilk to fresh frozen desserts. It operates at a low 80rpm, preventing clogging, foaming, and heat buildup. It comes with a 15-year warranty, so even if it does end up on the shelf, or in the closet like that old exercise machine, it will be there when it's time. You know, when you're ready.
