What’s all the Hoopla About Juicing Anyways?
Mother Nature has some of the most amazing foods that can heal our bodies, bring us incredible energy and an overall sense of well-being and peace. And in this day and age with stress, depression, and illnesses all around us, we can use all the help we can get from Mother Nature.
Juicing fruits and veggies is a fantastic way to amplify raw fruits and veggies’ power to create positive changes in our bodies. And for you parents out there who fight the battle of getting enough veggies into your children’s diet, juicing is a great way to “sneak” veggies in a fresh glass fruit juice.
Besides at some instinctual level of just knowing that juicing is good for us what can juicing really do for you? (so glad you asked)
- Improve your Cardiovascular System & Heart Health
- Detoxify your Liver (wonderful for those of us who still enjoy a nice glass or two of wine occasionally)
- Increase your Metabolic Rate
- Improve your Immune System
- Rebuild Blood Cells
- Alkalizes your System
- Help with your skin, hair, nails and eyes-Increase your energy levels
Juicing allows you to consume a large amount of vegetables without sitting at the dinner table for hours eating the same amount you can just drink in a glass.
Juicing helps you to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables and requires very little digesting. Many people turn to juicing for weight loss.
What a simple alternative to surgery or irritating diets!
If you are anything like me, you have grown up liking a few favorite veggies, and maybe have found yourself even in adulthood not putting yourself out there to try new veggies…maybe you aren’t sure how they taste, or unsure of how to prepare them, so you stick with what you know. Juicing gives us a chance to step out of that veggie rut and just stick it in the juicer and try it out.Juicing has been a super fun journey in my life and I find when I step away from it my energy level decreases to a substantial and noticeable low.
Simple, Juicing for Weight Loss Recipes
In the beginning, stick with veggies that you are familiar with and enjoy eating. I also think adding lemon and or an apple to any recipe can really make the drink lighter and not so earthy tasting, for you newbies out there…over time, if you are like me, you may come to love the earthy taste.
Here are just a couple great recipes to get you started on your juicing for weight loss journey:
