Juicing has become quite popular during this last decade. It’s nutritious and a simple way to use your weekly produce! One, two, three and…just sip, feel healthy and start your day re-energized! We’re great fans of juicing and we want to share some tips with you so your day begins with good health.
Be creative! By mix and matching your weekly fresh produce bag and combining vegetables and fruits together, you can make up your own “combo juice”. What about carrot, apple and celery juice? Or a green juice with kale, spinach and Swiss chard with onions and garlic for more flavor?
Think fresh! Sometimes neighbors tell us it’s so difficult to each fresh produce every day. Well, juicing is a quick way to provide our body with a variety of phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals.
Keep it simple If you’re struggling to obtain your five to ten servings of fruits and vegetables and feel overwhelmed as you feel you can’t ever obtain the daily recommendations, start juicing. In a couple of minutes and with no cooking skills you can obtain a delicious and satisfying drink that’s also nutritious!
Maintain your health Your physician is probably hounding you with “eat more produce” to prevent future health conditions. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of antioxidants and phytochemicals which help ward off chronic illness, such as heart disease or diabetes.
A strong immune system Juicing on a consistent basis, especially in the cold and flu months can enhance overall immune function. Fresh produce provides us with vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, vitamin C, beta-carotene and B vitamins that can strengthen our immune response. Life is already very stressful and a glass of fresh juice is tastier and much cheaper than supplementation!
Save money Nowadays, we’re all looking at ways to extend our dollars. A good juicer is an initial investment which can save you on the long run and avoid you buying artificial juices at the grocery store or restaurant. And how tasty or nutritious are they, to say the least?
Quick absorption Juices are liquid so they can travel quickly through the digestive system and provide both energy and nutrition to the whole body. Less hassle to your digestive system! As a friend mentioned recently, “It makes me feel good knowing I’m taking care of my body.”
Educate your family What a great way to have some family time together by coming up with vegetables juices, fruit juice or not traditional combinations that can be enjoyed by every member of your household.
