Healthy Juice Healthy You

Fruits and vegetables make incredibly healthy juices.

Some of the most creative mixes and matches make up juice recipes that provide nutrient rich 'meals' and deliver enormous quantities of vitamins to those who would not normally opt for an 'apple a day' or a 'shot of wheatgrass'.

Not all juice recipes are the same however, and more importantly not all juicers are the same. The key is to be able to get the most nutrients out of all of your ingredients and not leave any fibre or the 'good bits' behind.

Let's discover the best juicers and how to make the best juices.

Wonderfully refreshing on hot days, great snacks for the whole family and perfect for summer time alternative drinks. Give them a go!

What is the best juicer?

If your aim is to improve on the volume of nutrients you consume daily, and are inspired by various cancer protocols which recommend various juiced fruit and vegetable mixes, you need to find the best juicer for the job.

Your juicer needs to:

  • extract the most juice from your selected fruits and vegetables, whilst retaining their enzyme signatures
  • be able to juice a wide range of fruits and vegetables from apples, broccoli and carrots all the way down to wheatgrass, coriander, mint and even parsley

Hand held juicers are often too time consuming, and more importantly are not 'carrot', or hard vegetable friendly.

Regular electric juicers extract the juice but not the fibre which is a key to retaining nutritional benefits plus some actually heat the juice which can substantially reduce the enzyme content.

Then there are the more heavy duty varieties. A masticating single auger juicer, like the omega 8600 masticating juicer or a twin gear system. The twin gear systems extract the most juice and is therefore very appealing but their price can mean they are not in reach of everyone.

Let's not forget the Nutribullet (nutri bullet). How about we take a look at this a little more closely.

Nutribullet Review - Perfect Healthy Juices Every time

The Nutri Bullet ticks all the boxes. Here's why. Not only is it super compact but it does the job of a heavy duty juicer better. Much better.

  • 600 watt or 900 watt speed - this is far greater power than any other kitchen appliance of its size on the market
  • Pulverises all fruits and vegetables - no matter how hard or soft, this little magic machine will reduce its contents to a completely pure liquid.
  • No wastage - No lost nutrients. No healthy fruit and vegetables left in a lost compartment.
  • Super easy to clean - No tricky components to clean. This is a one stop machine.

This Nutri Bullet not only takes seconds to produce a high-nutrient juice but seconds to clean. It has changed my life. It is incredible.

Cool Summer Healthy Drink Idea

Make the most of the summer fresh fruits and vegetables and make yourself a great nutritious juice.

Add kale, broccoli, spinach and cucumber together with a handful of berries like raspberries or strawberries. A touch of water and blend.

Not only will it taste sweet but you will be drinking a power drink.

Add a few ice cubes or some frozen mango for a super tropical touch!

These ideas are sure to keep you healthy over summer, and cool you down.

Healthy Juice

When it comes to creating a juice there are a few things to consider but overall it is quite hard to make a mistake. Creating your own juice recipes can be fun and can also be a great way to get children to digest foods that they would normally turn their nose up at.

Just remember, try to limit the amount of fruit to about a handful or so per day as the liver only has enough fructose converting enzymes for about that amount. Any more than that and the sugar can turn to fat.

As a rule of thumb, a mixture of carrots, celery and apples work nicely . Don't always stick to the same quantities. Try more of this and less of that.

Be adventurous and have fun. Always opt for a freshly juiced glass of nutrients over a pre-bottled variety and where possible, choose organic.

      Just remember it can get very easy to add too much fruit to a juice - and you end up having far too much sugar. Try to minimise fruit to one piece per day particularly if you are aiming to cut sugars where possible. Good luck.

      Orange carrots are fine. Purple have a different flavor all together. Stick to orange if that's all you can find. Let me know how you go.

      Hi, these juices sound really nice, and if they are healthy, well then that's a bonus.

      I'm a work at homedad, I love to cook and try new foods. I'm not sure about the different coloured carrots you've got here whether we have them.

      cheers
