Because juicing is so simple to make, pretty much anyone can do it. Just follow these tips and you will discover the secrets to success.
If you juice dark, leafy greens like spinach, add some cucumber. Many dark, leafy greens taste very strong when raw. Cucumber masks the taste and adds refreshing flavor to the drink. Unpeeled cucumbers are packed with lots of important nutrients.
Green vegetables such as spinach, kale and broccoli have many, wonderful health benefits. Try to use at least 50-70% greens in your juices, while the rest goes to other veggies and fruits for flavor. Take it easy on sugary fruits, however. These aren’t nearly as healthy as greens and too many of them will negate what you’re trying to accomplish.
Save your juice, and slowly drink it. Enjoy the taste of your beverage, and appreciate each of its flavors. Give your saliva the chance to mix into the juice, and begin the digestion process.
Some people prefer to use juice as a substitute for a meal. After you’ve been juicing for some time, this will come naturally to you, and you will soon realize just how much food is actually contained in one glass of juice. If you juice as meal, the vitamins and nutrients will enter your bloodstream faster.
Go by color in choosing fruits and vegetables to juice. Every color provides different nutrients; if you can learn which colors are associated with which nutrients, you’ll be able to choose the right fruits and vegetables for your needs. The more varied the produce you use, the better the nutritional value and more enjoyable the taste.
Be sure to clean equipment you have used as soon as you are done juicing. In addition, some juices can stain the blades and other parts of your juicing machine.
Store your juicer in a convenient, visible place. This will keep you more aware of it and the fact that you need to use it regularly. Seeing it on the counter will remind you to use it daily.
Juicing creates a wide range of tasty, healthy treats that you can enjoy at any time. When you juice fresh vegetables and fruit, your body gets what it must have to stay in shape.
