Any time is a good time for starting something new. Right now, the New Year is almost upon us and people everywhere will be making resolutions and changes.
One area where people always want to change is in improving their health and wellbeing. And the good news is there is a simple way to make that change and stick to it: juicing.
We all know that juicing is good for us – improved energy, digestion, skin tone, and so much more – but some might be put off because they don’t know the basics of juicing or they think it’s too hard.
Well, grab your grocery bags and your green superfood supplement powder, because it’s time to learn how to boost your nutritional intake in the most natural way. We are proud to present this crash course in juicing for newbies.
Freshly squeezed and extracted juice is the easiest way to increase essential nutrients in your diet. Your body absorbs and metabolizes all of the nutrients through the pure, clean and gentle liquids. To boost the vitamins and minerals you receive, it’s a snap to stir in a scoop of a green superfood supplement that is made from concentrated doses of some of the ingredients you’re likely to use in creating your juice concoctions (kale, spinach, carrot, etc).
What Kind of Juicer Should I Get?
This is the most complicated question about juicing for newbies, but not that complicated. Although the market is saturated, there are primarily two types of juicer: centrifugal juicers and cold press juicers.
A centrifugal juicer typically costs less, but because of the speed at which its blades turn to tear apart the ingredients and extract the juice, it can create heat, which in turn can cause some nutrients to be compromised or lessened. A cold press juicer doesn’t generate much heat, but rather “chews” the produce and the by-product is the juice. Cold press juicers leave more pulp and fiber to make juice have a thicker consistency. Some people like that, while others don’t.
The choice is yours.
Can’t I Just Use My Blender?
Yes, you can, although you wouldn’t technically be juicing. You’d be making smoothies. Juicing removes/extracts the juice from the produce; a blender mixes everything together.
What Ingredients Should I Use?
That’s entirely up to your taste buds. Research some recipes on the internet to learn the proportions of different ingredients. Otherwise, while kale is an outstanding superfood, too much in your juice will not taste that great.
Always use organic produce. Being free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers is essential.
Use a mixture of fruits and vegetables. Fruits are great, but vegetables bring some more nutrients. By the way, boost your juicing every time by adding a scoop of doctor-formulated organic green superfood powder. Just check the amazing vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients you’ll get each time.
Can I Store My Juice?
Homemade juice is unquestionably healthier than anything you buy in the store. Your own juice doesn’t come with all the preservatives, which therefore gives it a shorter shelf life. If you need to store it, immediately after juicing, pour your juice into glass mason jars, filled as high possible, leaving little to no air in the containers. Seal the lids and refrigerate. Your newly juiced concoctions should last 2-3 days, but we advise consuming on the same day to maximize the nutrient content.
That’s juicing for newbies in a nutshell. There really is no complicated trick to it. Even if you’re not sure how to balance the ingredients for optimal nutrient intake, all you have to do is stir in a scoop of green superfood supplement and you’re set every time.
