The Pros of Juicing
This is the 1st in a series of articles looking at the benefits of juicing.
So authorise us start with a definition. Juicing is the means of extracting juice from fruit, vegetables or wheatgrass so that a drink can be made. Hence, the drink is called juice and this can be consumed on its own or blended into a smoothie.
So why would you want to juice? There are many pros of juicing.
Firstly, consuming fruit can be tiresome. Especially if you have children, getting them to eat fruit can be a nightmare. Juicing means that you can beverage fruit rather than consuming. Now that is quick and fun. If you have children, allow them do the juicing (supervise them though) so they can see how it works.
Secondly, you cannot exactly mix combinations of fruits. When you juice though, you can concoct any combination you like. Have you tried spicy apple juice? Just add a bit of root ginger to the juice (blend the two together) and serve over ice! How easy is that?
Thirdly, it is much easier to get closer to the 5-a-day target you should be aiming for. You should eat 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables per day. That can be difficult if you don't like eating fruit. Drinking fruit juice can make that much easier!
Finally, juicing is a great way to 'hide' particular fruits or vegetables. For instance, if you child does not like tomatoes, why not blend a tomato with two apples? The taste of the tomato should not be distinct yet the nutrients will be there.
Some people do this with celery and cucumbers also.
