The thing about juice is that when you juice veggies and fruits you extract all the antioxidants and vitamins out into your juice and you drink it instead of eating it and NO chances of slathering those veggies with sauces or butter LOL. Plus fresh is best...so use fresh when you can! I use organic if fresh isn't available as much as possible...obviously in the winter where I live fresh fruit isn't the easiest to find.
For me I noticed it helps:
-my skin look vibrant and clear
-give me the energy I need to start the day and is filling
-helps with my Chrohn's, keeping it stable and healthy
-helps give a boost to my immune system
-I take vitamins and supplements but I always feel that you get the best does of vitamins from the foods you choose to eat.
-handful of small carrots
-3-5 large strawberries
-1/2 cup blackberries or raspberries
-1/2 cup of blueberries
-cup of spinach
-grapefruit chunks (I hate grapefruit but its good for ya)
-2-3 med sized tomatoes
-1 apple to cut some acidity for me
-1/2 a cucumber
-garlic clove or two
-3-4 celery stalks
-a few carrots
-some lemon juice
-spinach or broccoli
Research the veggies and fruits that give you the most bang for you buck as well. I know lemon is great for helping keep your kidneys clear & for good digestion, blueberries are high in antioxidants, and carrots great for your eye & heart health. So research what you think you need the most and make sure to add those things in to your juices.
I usually make a double batch so I can have one in the morning and one the next morning. Sometimes I make the kids some juice too although Riley isn't too hip on it LOL but Alexa does like it! But it really is easy to do, no big deal to me and I love knowing that I'm drinking some good stuff that is homemade. I feel like I'm drinking a giant dose of HEALTHY after I've drank up!
Do you juice? What's your fave combo to juice up?
