Using your juicer to make fresh fruit or vegetable juices daily can be a wonderful addition to your health care plan. Most people who start juicing report that they have more energy, feel better and even lose weight. Here are some helpful tips to help you get more from it.
Keep your juicing regime simple. If you make it too complicated you’ll be less likely to stick with it.Instead of using elaborate juicing recipes with several different types of produce, just stick with 2 or 3 vegetables. Apples blend nicely with many different vegetables and lend a bit of sweetness too.
When you remove the pulp from your juicer, try freezing it. Frozen pulp makes a delicious and nutritious additive to soups, baked goods, and casseroles. By freezing pulp you will have it instantly available to use in any of your favorite recipes. Freeze in small ziplock bags or ice cube trays for ease of use.
Stick with fruits that have higher water contents. Fruits that have low-water content are much harder to juice; they clog up your juicer and require many more pieces of fruit to make even a small serving of juice. If you insist on using fruits such as avocados or bananas, make sure to blend them first in a blender, and then add them to your juicer with other fruits with a higher water content.
If you have trouble juicing ginger, use a garlic press on it first! This will release the binds within the pulp itself and allow your juicer to extract as much juice as possible from the chunk of ginger. You can also do the same for garlic you wish to use.
There are many different types of juicers to choose from, depending on the type of juice you prefer. No matter what style of juicer you prefer, avoid juicers that create a lot of heat when they run. Excess heat can ruin the valuable nutrients in the fruits and vegetables.
One of the best ways to increase your nutrient intake is to make your own juice. Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables can not only be healthy, but quite tasty. Start with your favorite vegetables and then make the move to fruits. You will never want bottled juice again.
