Juice is so simple ,Its good and easy to prepare add beyond all it tastes great .This makes it a hit all round the year .we all know drinking the real fresh juice is better than sugary alternatives ..Though juices are great still we must be aware of certain things lets deal it in questions and answer them :

Can we drink as much juice we want?

No we mustn't .try and get into the habit of drinking water to fulfill our liquid requirement .and try and eat fruits in it's natural form .and opt for fresh juice as an occasional healthy treat .we need to keep in mind that juices are concentrated form of fruit , if we eat fruits we just eat our daily requirement which is of two fruits a day but when we drink juice we consume more calories without fiber .

Should we drink fruit juice every day ?

If you do so then remember your daily requirement of 2 fruits so stick to that requirement and blend the fiber and drink along with it as your body need fiber too .

Whats the best choice for a daily juice habit?

Have small vegetable juice or add some vegetables to the fruit juice .The ideal choice is carrot apple ,and ginger blended with only one fruit .Carrots are sweeter but low in calories and have half the charbs of a fruit Celery is also low calorie filler you can add some bottle gourd it is healthy and have lots of health benefits .

Goods and bads of juices


Should we use extractors or blenders to squeeze juice?

Use blenders as you need fiber if you use extractors they will provide you with smoothies but without important fiber removed .

Is juice good for kids ?

Large amounts of juice can give kids diarrhea,its good if kids drink water . Having juice everyday may give your child a lifetime sweet tendencies.Juice should be occasional so try and make your child eat fruit rather than having juice .
