Have you tried juicing? If yes – That’s great, because juicing has a lot to offer you that will benefit your health and wellbeing. Juicing can make you feel better in so many ways.
It’s important, however, to understand how juicing works, and this book will help you get started, discuss the best juicers for you, and how to avoid the common pitfalls of juicing. You will also find many juicing recipes, some specifically geared to help with certain health concerns.
Your mom probably told you repeatedly, “Eat your vegetables!” Maybe you hid the spinach beneath the mashed potatoes. Kids do that. Now, however, you know how important eating more fruits and vegetables is to your optimal health.
They are known to reduce the risk of certain cancers, heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. They are filled with the vitamins and minerals you need to remain healthy and full of energy.
It’s a simple fact that the more fruits and vegetables you eat, the more you enjoy the benefits. You should be eating more than five servings every day. That sounds close to impossible, doesn’t it?
This is where juicing comes in. We can’t always consume all the fruits and vegetables we need. Juicing concentrates the produce so that one glass can serve as the equivalent of several pieces of fruit and vegetables. Juicing makes it easier to enjoy the benefits of fruits and vegetables.
Here’s how it works:
A juicer extracts all the liquid and discards everything else. So, what you are left with is highly concentrated fruit and vegetable juice. A blender mashes the whole fruits or vegetables, but leaves the fiber. We’ll talk more about the difference between juicing and blending, because they both have their benefits.
