The Benefits and Importance of Vegetable and Fruit Juicing

The Benefits and Importance of Vegetable and Fruit Juicing

According to Dr. Norman Walker, a pioneer in the field of vegetable and fruit juicing and nutritional health, “Fruit juices are the cleansers of the human system, vegetable juices are the builders who revitalize the body.”[1]

From personal experience and several experts’ health advice, a lot of people have come to discover that the fresh juice of fruits and vegetables are healthy and provide a variety of vitamins and minerals to the body, in addition to cleaning the body of toxic substances. Our lifestyle and diet are major factors that impact our health and the way we feel. Drinking fresh and natural juice is one of the best ways to improve your overall health and keep your body in tip-top shape.

The Importance of Fresh and Natural Juice

    I love having fresh juice in between my lunch and dinner because, in addition to getting a great feeling from eating healthy, it also helps fill my stomach and prevent me from eating other high-calorie food in between meals. However, I do not like buying commercial juices because they are mostly loaded with an unhealthy amount of sugar, preservatives, coloring, and whatnot. I like to make my own juice from fresh fruits and vegetables, and this has proven to be a lot better and healthier for me.

    Not only does fresh juice tastes so much better, but you can also be sure that there are no added sweeteners or preservatives.

    Our body needs fresh fruits and vegetables because they provide a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals, so drinking properly juiced fruits and veggies is a fast way for our body to absorb nutrients.

    Why You Should Mix and Juice Fruits and Veggies Instead of Eating them

    Mixing and juicing fruits and vegetables help us consume lots of nutrients at once, which is great because it is not always practical for us to consume the required amount of fruits and vegetables that the body needs on a daily basis.[2] It is a very effective way to stay healthy and is an effective alternative when eating fruits and vegetables is not an option.

    Sieve the Juice of Fiber or Do Not Sieve the Juice?

    Some people like to sieve the fiber from the juice completely after mixing the fruits together, but experts share the opinion that a little fiber is important to the body because it helps in weight loss, stomach activity, and prevents constipation. So remember, when you juice, don’t sieve. Ensure that you are drinking your healthiest glass of juice possible by including the much-needed fiber that is pivotal to the body’s health.

    Mixing and Juicing Your Fruits and Veggies

    It is very easy to make nutritious juice. You just need the proper fruits and veggies to mix, a good blender, a sieve, and a drinking glass. After that, juice your fresh fruits and veggies together in your blender and then sieve into your drinking glass or, on the flip-side, you might decide to sieve a little and leave some fibers to facilitate stomach activity and prevent constipation. To make sure you get a variety of vitamins, you should make it a point to juice fruits and vegetables that are fresh and in season.

    Here are some additional important tips to keep in mind when juicing:

    1. Avoid adding sugar as much as possible to keep your juice as natural and healthy as possible.
    2. Always consult health juicing advice articles or a nutritionist to make sure you combine and mix the proper fruits and veggies together.[3] It would also help ensure that you mix and take in enough variety of nutrients, as well as the right amount.
    3. Mixing and consuming fresh fruits and veggies through juicing should not replace solid food. It is meant to supplement your diet, not replace a healthy one.
    4. Make sure you properly and thoroughly wash your fruits and veggies before mixing and juicing.

    Drinking fresh juice, in addition to being a tasty experience, also enhances the quality of life. You can check out different juicing recipes for detoxing, weight loss, energy, and more. You can also search recipes by ingredients, so you can start making delicious fruit and veggies juice right away.

    I’ll raise my glass of juice to that. Happy Juicing!

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    Is it time to make some changes in your life? It just might be. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.

    Here are some signs it’s time to change your life.

    1. Every week, you cannot wait for Friday.

      Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

      2. You live for your vacations.

      Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

      3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

      Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

      4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

      If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

      5. You’re frequently jealous.

      If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

      1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
      2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
      3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

      When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

      6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

      According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

      Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.
