Who among us wouldn’t be interested in learning about a quick and easy way to lose weight, boost their immune system, and improve their overall nutrition and health for just a few bucks a week? Many Americans have tried juicing with great results. Are you interested in reading more?
Try to use locally-grown fruits and vegetables in your juicing. The best option is to use produce that you’ve grown yourself. Every mile that a piece of fruit needs to be transported to get to you increases the carbon footprint of your glass of juice. It also increases the chance of your produce becoming contaminated with bacteria or chemicals.
Don’t just make fresh juice, keep the choices fresh as well. When you go to the farmer’s market, produce stand or grocery store, look for new fruits or vegetables you haven’t tried before. Not only will you bring much needed variety to your juicing, but also discover new and exciting produce to add to your meals.
Juicing will lead you to more ingredients than just produce! Try spices like cayenne or cinnamon, or nutrition-packed additions like spirulina. You can even put a little honey and yogurt in once in a while for a sweet, smooth treat. Make sure to use only non-fat, unsweetened dairy to keep the resulting produce healthy.
If you don’t want pulp in your drink, use a coffee filter. Only use a filter, of course, if you find the pulp unpleasant and would prefer it not be in your juice. Use a cheesecloth, coffee filter, or fine strainer to take out the pulp if this is the case.
If you have been looking for a way to increase your overall health, vitality, and well being, then, please consider juicing! Most of us fail to consume the recommended doses of fruits and vegetables each day, and juicing offers one efficient, economic, and tasty way to get these recommended doses!
