10 Shocking Health Benefits of Juicing, With Recipes!

10 Shocking Health Benefits of Juicing, With Recipes!

1. Juicing helps you to consume more fruits and veggies.

This is more true with vegetables. When you juice you are more likely to try out new vegetables, or even old vegetables that you may not like to eat raw, or cooked. Adding these to your juice with your favorite fruits will help mask the old taste that you don’t like.

2. Juicing can give you more energy.

When you juice, you are basically getting the part of the fruits and veggies that have all of the vitamins and nutrients out of the fruit itself. When you drink your juice you are going to be loading your body up with all of these vitamins that will help your body to get going.

If you need an energy boost fast, I recommend a green juice, like this one from all-about-juicing.com:

Energy boost

  • 1 Orange, peeled
  • 4 apples, cored
  • 1 handful of Kale

Combine these three ingredients in your juicer, and serve immediately!

3. Juicing can help you sleep better.

Juicing the right fruits and veggies can help you to sleep better. Fruits like cherries, kiwi, oranges have melatonin in them, a hormone that helps the body to sleep. A study done by Louisiana State University showed that adults who drank 8 ounces of tart cherry juice twice a day got an average of 90 minutes more of sleep per night.

4. Juicing can help you focus better.

Drinking green juices can help you feel more alert and energized, thus helping you focus better. If you drink juices, instead of coffee or energy drinks you will not get that dreaded sugar crash in the middle of your day.

5. Juicing can help you live longer.

Drinking fresh juices regularly is essential to keep up on your health. Fruits and vegetables are natures medicines. Consuming them regularly will help keep your blood pressure down, keep your blood sugars regular, and even prevent cancer.

6. Juicing can help you detox.

If you have been on a junk food binge, juicing can help you fix that. A juicing cleanse is the perfect way to clear out all of the toxins from your body. It will flood your system with vital nutrients, and help you to feel great again! Fromthegroundupwellness.com has a great detox juice recipe that you should try!

Detoxify

  • 4 stalks celery
  • 4-5 dinosaur or lacinato kale leaves
  • 1 green apple
  • one big handful of flat leaf parsley leaves (if parsley is too spicy for you, use basil)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon
  • 1″ piece of fresh ginger

7. Juicing can help combat dehydration.

If you are like me, remembering to drink enough water can be quite a chore. If you juice regularly, you can help stay hydrated, as long as you juice fruits and veggies with a high water content. Try this hydrating recipe from fromthegroundupwellness.com:

8. Juicing can help you to lose weight.

If you need to lose some extra weight, juicing can most certainly help you do that. Juicing can help curb cravings, and it makes a much healthier, tasty alternative to most unhealthy snacks. It is also easy to digest, which we will talk about next.

Pear, Celery and Ginger

  • 1 big pear
  • 2 celery Stalks

Peel and remove the seeds of the pear and cut it into rough cubes, chop the celery and add all the three ingredients into the mixer; mix well and add some water if the smoothie is too dry. Pour in a tall serving glass and enjoy with a pinch of cinnamon powder on top.

10. Juicing can help bring your family together.

As a personal experience of starting juicing, I have noticed it has bonded my family in a totally different way. We enjoy picking out our fresh produce together, finding, and coming up with new recipes, and even the process of making our juices has brought us together!

Doing this as an added family activity can be beneficial for the physical and mental health of children, and teens. It has been shown that kids who have more intact families tend to be happier, have higher academic achievement, and even are less likely to abuse substances later on.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
