I could still remember my mom when I was young, telling me to finish my vegetables. I’ve always struggled to hit the daily veggie and fruit requirements up until a few years ago when I discovered to start juicing. Here are tips on how to drink your daily fruit and vegetable requirement.
First tip is to get a good juicer for your needs. If you look around the market, you will find that there are tons of different juicers available. You’ll likely won’t know which juicer to purchase. Depending on your budget, you’ll want the best juicing machines money can buy. I will advise that you get a masticating juicer instead of a centrifugal juicer. You’ll get more yield out of the juice by using a slow juicer.
If you are implementing juicing for the purpose of getting vitamins and nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables, go with at least 50% broccoli, chard, and spinach and combine it with your favorite fruits to give it a good taste.
Try to drink juice separate from your meal. The reason you do this is the nutrients will be absorbed into your bloodstream faster when you consume the juice separately.
We all hate cleaning appliances and it’s no different in cleaning your juicer machine. Make sure you clean your juicer right after you are done juicing to avoid stains and pulp drying and building up. It can be hard to take them off.
Keep the juicer in the kitchen where it is most visible. The more you see it, the more motivated you will be to use the juicer and drink juice. If you put it in a spot where it is easily hidden, you will more likely miss it and skip juicing more often.
Most people want to make juice to save for later and put in the fridge. However, juice can go bad quickly if you don’t consume it right away. The juice will likely turn brown. One way to avoid this is to add a teaspoon or two of lemon juice. This will help keep the juice fresh for at least a day. You should never save juice over a day. Why would you? You can make fresh juice every day. Just juice enough for a glass that you can drink along with your meal.
I hope this is helpful. This should get you going in the right direction and keep you motivated to stay juicing. It will save time and you will benefit from all the nutrients and vitamins that you get from drinking fresh juice. It is important to keep in mind to get the best juicer on the market that will work for your needs.
