Welcome to Neighborhood America!
We are a brother and sister team who have each brought our own expertise to the table to help create this site. Our goal is to help streamline the process of finding a quality juicer and present our readers with the best possible information to make an informed decision before making a purchase.
That’s my wonderful sister. She is a registered dietician and nutritionist. She is the one who inspired (nagged) me to get into juicing, but I am thankful that she was so persistent. She has been practicing for the past 7 years and consulting all types of patients to help them with their dietary needs, she even makes house calls. She has extensive experience with different types of juicer machines over the years and knows what are the most important aspects that a juicer should have. She has been invaluable as far as which juicers should not only be included on our site, but which ones should be avoided. She is also responsible for our Nutrition and Recipe sections. Jess also happens to be a vegetarian and is always in my ear about getting more fresh fruits and veggies into my diet. She is the real juicing expert in the family.
That’s me. I am an engineering student. I am responsible for the research, data correlation, and web site design. I am the nerd that puts everything together. When I began shopping for my very first juicer I took the advice that my sister gave me on a few different models and went searching for customer reviews. I trust her completely, but I always need to research before I buy something online. I ended up spending hours looking through all of the user feedback that I could find on sites like Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, and other online retailers to see which models really performed well for owners. After I was done, I thought to myself how useful it would be if there was a site that did all of that work for me. It sure would have saved me a ton of time. That’s when I had that “A-Ha” moment. That was the genesis of Neighborhood America. I consulted with Jess and we decided to see if we could come up with something that would be helpful for others in the same position.
We were both lucky to have been raised with active and health conscious parents. They passed on an appreciation for taking care of our bodies, staying fit, and eating right. My sister has carried on their healthy habits and turned it into a career for herself as a dietician. She finds it truly fulfilling to help others become more aware of the importance of proper nutrition and how much of a positive impact it can have on your overall well being. I am now trying to do my part as well. I have only been juicing for a couple of years, but I have become obsessed with it after seeing what it has done for me personally.
If you are like me, and you are always looking for products that get the best reviews from people who have actually used it before you end up buying, then hopefully Neighborhood America will be something that will help point you in the right direction when it comes to getting a new juicing machine. Finding a juicer that fits all of your needs like budget, noise, and performance can go a long way to ensuring that you stick with your juicing routine. Hopefully our expertise and research will save you valuable time as you start your journey into juicing.
