Juicing has become a way of life for me. It's a way to get all the nutrients your body needs without having to sit down and eat a three course meal of fruits and veggies. Here are some helpful hints for healthy juicing. For one, make sure your fruit is washed especially apples because these fruits have the hightest levels of pesticides! So you should buy organic apples and make sure you wash them well, organic doesnt mean clean. For glowing skin juice one cup of cucumber, a half a cup of parsley, one small apple (washed and stem removed), four carrots (washed, topped, and tailed) and one half cup of coconut milk or soy milk. Have a salad in a glass by juicing one tomato, a half head of leaf lettuce, two stalks of celery, one carrot, and one half of a red bell pepper. You can even add a little fish oil or flax seed oil to your cup of juice for your Omega3 Fatty Acids, but make sure to add to the cup and not the juicer. You could take the left over fruit pulp and add it to muffins and smoothies. You can also take your vegetable pulp and add it to meat loaf, soups, stews, casseroles, omeletes and whatever else your little heart desires. You can even add it to your childrens food, without them knowing of course!
Everyone should take vitamins and supplements everyday, but to a limit. By juicing you get all the nutrients you need without having to rely on artificial supplements. When in doubt always go natural, your body will thank you!
