What You Need To Know About Juicing (5 tips to get the benefits of juicing)

Juicing is a fantastic way to consume your favourite (and maybe not so favourite) fruits and vegetables in a simple and convenient manner.

 

Want to know more? Then read on to learn more about juicing and the fabulous health benefits.

 

Juicing is a fantastic way to extract essential vitamins and minerals from all of your favorite fruits and vegetables, creating delicious and healthful beverages in the comfort of your own home.

 

Juicing is a fun and simple way to provide your body with extra nutrition.

 

Here are some tips to get the most of the benefits of juicing.

 

1. Preparation

Crumple up leafy greens, such as spinach, into tight balls before putting them in your juicer. Your juicer is primarily designed to deal with solid fruits and vegetables, not thin leaves.

 

You will get better results from your juicer if you simulate this effect by squashing your leafy greens before juicing.

 

2. Washing

Don’t forget to wash your produce prior to juicing, and use organic products where possible. So many people seem to think that since it’s going to turn into juice, they don’t need to wash their fruits and veggies.

 

Just because it’s liquid, doesn’t mean the chemicals present on the peels are going to go away. Clean your fruits and vegetables thoroughly before juicing.

 

3. Stock up

When preparing for a juice diet, make sure to stock a LOT of fresh fruits and vegetables! On average, it takes 4.4 pounds of raw fruits and vegetables to make just a single quart of juice, so you’ll need lots.

 

Also make sure to get a large variety of ingredients so that you don’t get bored with the same old juice.

 

4. Source good quality fruit and vegetables

The best place to find the freshest produce for juicing at great prices is at a local farmer’s market.

 

Often, they are held once a week during the summer and fall months, and you’ll find everything sold on a farm, including meat, eggs, dairy, baked goods, canned goods, and TONS of fresh fruit and vegetables!

 

5. Storage

If you absolutely must store your juice after you make it, make sure to store it in a completely air-tight container. Letting air get at it will start a process which breaks down the nutrients in the juice, leaving a tasty but empty drink that won’t provide you with the healthy benefits you were looking for in the first place. 

 

Remember that vegetable and fruit remnants left on a juicer after juicing have the potential to grow mold quickly. Cleaning it quickly helps stop the growth of mold. Dismantle the juicer clean the parts and rinse with water until clean. If you must use a detergent use one that is very mild.

 

As you can see, there are many benefits to juicing at home. With the great variety of fruits and vegetables available, you can begin making your own tasty beverages to give yourself a daily nutritional boost. You deserve a healthy lifestyle and juicing is a wonderful way to pamper yourself.

I’m just an average guy who spent 15 years in the Armed Services, and when about to leave thought “Hmmm, what the heck am I going to do now?!?” Being an ex-serviceman I have always had a passion for health and fitness and wanted to help others reach their goals. I have 4 wonderful daughters (hence my lack of hair) and they are my reason “why” I do this. I wanted to have lots of energy to make the most of my family time, especially when the kids are young and making you run around like a lunatic!!! I've managed to keep myself in good shape all my life and it is never too late to start. But you have got to believe in yourself, a LOT!!!! And that’s where I come in. I can help you overcome your doubts and show you how to look after yourself physically and mentally so you can have the physical energy to be able to enjoy all the free time with your friends and family. I guess that about wraps it up; I hope the site helps you in some small way in your health and fitness and personal development journey.
