Let's Juice to health

I use to think juicing was a waste of my time and energy and I would much rather sit and eat some fries and a big mac, but when you research Juicing is so good for your health

The Biggest Advantage

If you’re not big into fruits and vegetables, it’s a good way to get them in,

Aim to eat two whole fruits and three to four vegetables a day. Choose them in different colors, so you get a good mix of vitamins and minerals 

One negative effect: When you juice, you don't get the fiber that's in whole fruits and vegetables. Juicing machines extract the juice and leave behind the pulp, which has fiber.

Do You Need a Juicing Machine?

Juicers can be expensive, ranging from $50 to $400. Some more expensive juicers will break down a lot of the fruit by grinding the core, rind, and seeds.

You may not need a juicing machine to make juice. You can use a blender for most whole fruits or vegetables to keep the fiber. Add water if it becomes too thick,  You’ll want to remove seeds and rinds, and some skins.

Once your juice is ready, it's best to drink it the same day you make it, for food safety. Wash your blender or juice machine thoroughly, so it's ready for your next batch.

Watch the Calories

How many calories are in your juice? That depends on what's in it.
You could be taking up to four fruits, and now the calories start adding up. If you use vegetables to juice, the calories are a lot less. If they use mainly vegetables, add an apple or kiwi for flavor. Calories are a concern if it’s pure fruit juice

Things to look out for:

Juicing might seem like a simple way to lose weight, but it also can backfire.
On a juice-only diet, you may not get enough fiber or protein to make you full. You might rebel Like I would love to have cake or doughnut if I feel like I am missing out and the juice is not satisfying, with my juicer you can add all sorts of things to make it more interesting- one day add peanut butter, next day a different kind of yogurt etc.
