The Glorious World of Tailoring Your Juicing

December 23, 2011

This is a guest post by Matt Cruz.

As health consciousness increases and time decreases, more and more supplements are flooding the market. But most of these supplements are very expensive and recent studies are starting to ask questions regarding their effectiveness. Not to mention, the underlying concerns that were always there, such as what the consequence of so much preservatives in these products have on the body?

Like most things in life, there’s a better solution. You don’t need to buy Dr. so-and-sos’ pricey supplements, simply stay at home and start juicing your way to health. Fruits and vegetables have various benefits and, according to recent findings, juicing brings out the best in them.

Why Juice?

There are many benefits to juicing, but one of the biggest benefits is that you consume vegetables and fruits that you wouldn’t normally have consumed. Maybe it’s because cooking the certain produce is tedious or you don’t like the taste. By juicing you can cover up the bad taste of the produce you don’t like.

- Carrots have cancer preventing carotene
- Potatoes have blood pressure battling potassium
- Apples prevent extreme blood sugar ups and downs

What’s in the bottle?

Unfortunately, not what you think it is. Most of the time you might as well have bought a bottle of juice concentrates than a bottle of ‘pure’ juice. The heat during the well intentioned ‘purifying’ processes your juice is objectified to, practically kills all remaining vitamins and minerals.

When you’re juicing from the comfort of your own kitchen, you can steer clear of anything that will reduce the nutritional value of your fruits and vegetables and give you the freedom to choose your own recipes for juicing. Juicing is quick and convenient and can become one of the most enjoyable things in your daily routine.

Invent your Own Recipes for Juicing

Whilst juicing has become somewhat of a fashion statement in the newly embraced wholesome living philosophy, it’s still a very personal choice. You have to identify your own causes for concern or prevention priorities to decide which juice would meet your needs. Then you must make sure that the fruits and vegetables you pick, contains these necessary nutrients to assist you in your (probable) problem areas. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, but have a very sweet tooth; cherries will satisfy your craving without any sugar or fat.

What’s in a Juice?

It’s crucial to ensure that you’ve made the right choice before putting it in the juicer. Keeping in mind that all fruits and vegetables have different vitamins and minerals which aid different areas, you must choose the ones that will best suit your situation. Always ensure that your produce is fresh and organic. Even if you can’t grow it in a garden patch in the backyard, there’s no excuse to buy low quality goods. Your best bet is a grocery store you can trust on stocking exceptional products, as well as your nearest farmers market.

You will have to juice about four fruits or vegetables to fill a cup, but the volume can be increased by merely adding some bits and pieces. At the end of the day, you will find that not only is juicing a healthy option, but that it’s super quick and simple with loads of opportunity to experiment.

To round-up:

-Get to know your fruits and vegetables
-Decide which ones will be most beneficial to you
-Start juicing, drinking and licking your lips
