As I promised from my previous posts, I will explore more about the world of juicing. There are many benefits of why you should start juicing. Some benefits are obvious and some you may not know. However, I will explain all the benefits, facts and myths about juicing as well as picking the best juicers on the market. I’ve learned how to start juicing back in 2012 when I was looking for an easier way to consume all the nutrients that my body needs on a daily basis.
Juicing obviously is a simple and delicious way to consume fruits and vegetables. However, many may not know that you normally will feel more energize when you drink juice. This has been scientifically studied. I’m not talking about juice you buy at the store. I’m talking about juice that you process through a juicer with no preservatives.
Secondly, it really is easy to implement. I don’t know about you but I can’t manually eat the recommended fruits and vegetables that we are suppose to consume every day. Juicing makes this possible. With just a glass of juice, you get all the nutrients and antioxidants that you get from fruits and vegetables that you normally eat.
Third, juicing is truly a time saver. Instead of having to cut or cook fruits and vegetables, juicing can be done in just a few minutes. Depending on what kind of juicer you have whether you have a masticating or centrifugal juicer, you may need to cut the vegetable or fruit into pieces before processing through a juicer but it still takes less time than cooking.
Juicing recipes are easy to follow. If you are like me, I like simple and easy to follow recipes. Juicing can be just one fruit or vegetable or a combination of many. That is up to you. You can experiment on different combination and discover the right taste for you. Obviously the more combination of fruits and vegetables, the more nutrients you will get.
One thing to keep in mind, if you have the funds purchase a masticating juicer from the get go. Don’t go for the cheap juicers since they won’t last you a long time. Masticating juicers are slow juicers which gives out high yield of juice. They are also much more quieter than the other juicing machines. They are a bit more expensive but it is well worth the money if you are serious about juicing and plan to juice regularly.
If you are looking for a recommendation on which juicer you should buy, go for an Omega, Breville, or Hurom juicer brands. These juicing brands normally have high quality products which will last you for many years. I personally have the Hurom model. I’ve been using my juicer every day for the past 4 years without fail.
