Fresh is always better than processed, right? Yes! That is definitely right! Fresh bread is always better than store-bought bread; freshly grated cheese is better than pre-shredded cheese, etc. Well, fruits and veggies are better fresh rather than frozen, and so are the juices that they produce. If you do not feel like eating a whole apple, orange, banana, cucumber, etc., all you have to do is juice them. Juicing fresh veggies and fruits allow all of the vitamins and antioxidants to pool together into one awesome tasting solution! This article is here to explain to you all of the benefits of juicing your fruits and veggies rather than eat them whole. You will definitely be surprised what a cup of fresh fruit juice can do for you.
Use organic fruits and vegetables in your juicing. Organic fruits and vegetables have not been exposed to the chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in traditional farming. If you cannot use organic produce, be sure to peel everything before you put it in the juicer. The peel will contain most of the harmful chemicals.
At the beginning of a juicing program, make juices out of fruits that you already enjoy eating. This will ensure that you enjoy the juice while still receiving some health benefits. If you start juicing using fruits you’ve never tried before, you may not like the juice and you’re unlikely to continue making them, meaning you won’t gain any benefits.
Sometimes we all get sick, even the healthiest of us! Maybe it’s not an illness that is holding you back, but instead, you’ve injured yourself, and you just can’t get out of the house. Juicing does not have to be forgotten! Use whatever you happen to have in the house, or ask a neighbour if they have some items you could use.
Remember that vegetable and fruit remnants left on a juicer after juicing have the potential to grow mould quickly. Cleaning it quickly helps stop the growth of mould. Dismantle the juicer clean the parts and rinse with water until clean. If you must use a detergent use one that is very mild.
All in all, fresh is better than not fresh. Fresh foods contain no added preservatives or sugars or salts that are not necessary to your diet. Freshly juicing your fruits and veggies offer an immense amount of benefits to your body, inside and out. The next time you go and buy a bottled juice, just remember what is in there is not as good for you as you may think. Just remember to juice and reap all of the wonderful benefits!
