Using the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System is helping us stay on track with juicing. I am participating in a Vibrant Influencer Network campaign for the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System. I am receiving a fee for posting, however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System team and do not earn a commission or percentage of sales.
Stay on Track with Juicing
In an effort to boost our immune systems and increase our vitamin intake, Mike and I are juicing fresh fruits and veggies regularly. This, however, can be an enormous pain in the rear. If you have ever juiced before, you know it takes a lot of fruits and veggies.
You have to clean them and cut them before putting them in the juicer and it can require many trips to the grocery store. This is why in the past, our juicing kicks don’t last too long.
Of course the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System is great for many things. Buying meat in bulk and freezing portions is usually what first comes to my mind. However, I am extra excited about this plan. We buy gigantor bags of carrots and other veggies in bulk from Costco to juice.
They take up huge amounts of space in the fridge and go bad pretty quickly. When it comes time to juice, I have to decide what to juice, wash the pieces, and cut them down to fit into the juicer.
Using the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System I set aside some time plan ahead. I now have a feel for how much juice certain mixtures will make. I portion them out and get them all ready and then seal them. That way they are ready to go on busy days. Let me tell you, there are so many times that I make excuses not to juice just because of the prep time it takes. Now, I just slice open the bag and throw the pieces in the juicer.
Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System
The Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System is easy to use and doesn’t take up too much counter space. In our small kitchen, counter tops are prime real estate. Nothing too big or bulky can stick around for long. The Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System is thin and all business. It can do its job without being large. Of course, you can get bags in all sizes, or even make your own. Using a roll you can cut the size you need and seal one end to make your own bag.
The possibilities are endless with the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System. By removing all the air, it compresses the bag to save space and keep foods fresher longer. This can save trips to the grocery store and help eliminate waste.
With the holidays coming up, the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System will come in handy even more. Think freezing cookie dough, baked cookies, holiday treats, meats, and other foods. It can also be used to compress non-food items just to make them more compact for storing.

This is such a good idea for juicing and I think that I would use it to make meals and have them made for the whole week, so I do not have to cook. Seal each meal and have it in the freezer for the day I need it!

This is a great way to store fruits and veggies. If I had a Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System I would use it to store fruits and veggies and left over food, and pre-cooked dishes for reheating later. Thank you for sharing this post, the Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Sealer System is an awesome product and I think it would make a great gift.
