It takes very little effort to make your own fruit and vegetable juices–in fact, it only requires a few very simple steps. Read this article to get started.
If your juicing recipe calls for leafy green vegetables, add some cucumber to the mix. Many dark, leafy greens taste very strong when raw. Cucumber juice has a fresh taste, masking the taste of dark vegetables somewhat and giving the juice it a bright kick. Cucumbers also contain important nutrients, and this is especially true if you leave it unpeeled.
When making apple juice, make absolutely sure to choose the ripest, sweetest apples you can. If the apples you use are bruised, it is okay if you remove the bruises. Varieties that produce the richest, tastiest apple juice include Fuji, Gala, Red Delicious, and Rome apples.
When you drink juice for health, try using leafy greens like chard, broccoli, spinach, kale, parsley and more. The most healthful juicing creations consist of at least half dark, leafy greens, such as these. Add flavor with other veggies and/or fruits. Juices made exclusively from fruits tend to contain more unhealthy sugar than greens-based juices.
Drink your fresh juice slowly and appreciate the subtle nuances. Allow yourself to enjoy each and every flavor contained. Start digestion of the juice by letting your saliva mix with it.
Think of your juice as a meal. Once you are an experienced juicer and you realize how many fruits and vegetables it takes to make your juice, this concept will make sense. If you use juice as a meal, the nutrients in the juice enter the bloodstream much faster.
Use color to show you the way. The full color spectrum of fresh fruits and vegetables, from reds to greens to oranges, is an indication the variety of nutrients that are available. The more varied the produce you use, the better the nutritional value and more enjoyable the taste.
When deciding which juicer to buy, choose one that can be dismantled and cleaned as easily as possible. If it takes you 10 minutes to assemble the juicer, 10 minutes to juice and 15 minutes to clean it will deter you from juicing! When cleaning your juicer, do it as soon as possible after use. It is much easier to clean while the pulp is soft.
Juices are tasty, healthy and great for you. Juicing fresh vegetables and fruits is a wonderful way to give your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs in order to maintain great shape.
