JUICING FOR HEALTH
December 29, 2010 on 1:55 am
When you first start learning to juice it may feel like you will never have time to do anything else in your life.
You have to make the juice fresh daily or at least every other day and depending on the type of juicer you have, it could take some time to prep all of your fruits and vegetables to get the job done.
Perhaps the issue of time is what has held you back from starting a juicing regime or maybe you used to love juicing buy lifestyle changes make it more difficult these days. This is completely understandable, but you don’t have to let juicing take over your world. You can incorporate it into your life without give up all of your free time.
First, get your thinking about juicing straight. Many people do think of juicing as lifestyle and they are willing to work their schedule around their juicing activities, but you don’t have to do that. If your life is more complicated and time is short, think of juicing as a healthy part of your life. This is something you are adding into your schedule, rather than something that will dictate your schedule.
Take the time to think about the main benefits you want to get from juicing. If you are trying to lose weight you probably want to use homemade juice to deliver nutrient-packed drinks that will give you the energy to get through tough workouts. If you are trying to live a healthy diet to preserve your health and youthfulness, then you probably want to use your fresh juice to deliver antioxidants and powerful phyto-nutrients to your body in large concentrations.
Once you know your main goal with juicing, think of simple ways to incorporate juicing either on a daily or weekly basis. If you are trying to lose weight and need your juices for energy, then whipping up fresh juice a few hours before a workout could be all you need. If you are trying to increase the antioxidants and nutrients you take in daily, then starting your day out with a fresh smoothie made with homemade juice could be the perfect routine.
Juicing can be a lot of fun if you have the time to stock the kitchen with every fruit and vegetable under the sun, prep them all, and play around with unique combinations and recipes found online. Yet, if you don’t have time for all that you don’t have to do all that to get the benefits you really want.
It is enough for many people to just find a few good Juice Recipes that they enjoy and which meet their most basic needs and goals. That cuts down on the amount of fresh produce you have to keep stocked (which cuts expenses) as well as the amount of time you have to invest in the juicing process.
One last tip that will really cut down on the amount of time you spend juicing: invest in a really good Vegetable Juicer that works fast. One that is good is the Breville Juice Fountain Elite. Many of the cheaper juicers take awhile to process and that is what makes the process a bit more costly in terms of time. Invest a bit more of your money for a very fast and highly efficient machine and you will have to invest a lot less time in the process.
