What do you think of when you heard the word "juice"?
Sugary syrup? Synthetic chemicals? Cavities? Danger, Will Robinson?
What about vibrance? Health? Raw vitamins?
Today, I'm going to change the way you think about juice.
When juicing a vegetable or fruit, it's broken down to its pure liquid existence.
That color? That beautiful vibrance? That raw taste? This is the vegetable's essence.
Juicing vegetable or fruits creates concentrated nutrients - like drinking vitamins. A lot of natural healing centers utilize fresh vegetable juice to heal the body from degenerative diseases because the juices are pure nourishment. All those nutrients help to detoxify the body on a cellular level.
They're also easy to consume. Just try chowing down on a pound of carrots. How far did you get? Thought so.
Of course, this doesn't mean you should only eat your vegetables and fruits through juicing because fiber is lost in the juicing process. Fiber is needed to help get things moving, if you know what I mean.
Where can you get a juicer? Try supporting your local health food store and asking if they would sell you one. You can also look on amazon. There are great review on Champion juicers.
Every juicer is a little different. Read your manual and look at online reviews to help get a feel for yours. Some juicers need you to switch feeding it dense and watery produce while others need solely dense then watery produce.
I hope you enjoy these recipes!
