Healthy Juice Recipes

We all know that a regular intake of fresh fruits and vegetables boost our health and immune system. The problem is that many people are unable to meet their recommended daily intake. Now pressing out a fresh colorful glass of juice is a fast and easy way to do so. By juice I don’t mean the sugary, additive loaded boxed or canned juices. We should squeeze the fresh fruits and vegetables in such a way that we get the pulp too and this enriches it manifold. Now what does this all mean? It means that you will have a glass full of nutrients, soluble fiber and a bigger bang for your buck!

For getting the most out of your fruits and vegetables, follow these handy tips:
1.Always use organic produce
2.Always wash and scrub the produce prior to extracting the juice
3.Always make seasonal juices. This means use the ingredients that are found fresh at that time of the year
4.You don’t need any special kitchen gadgets for making juice. A simple blender will do.
5.It’s better to cut the larger chunks into smaller ones. Best is a one inch chunk.
6.Drink the juice as soon as it is extracted, as it loses nutrients and spoils easily.
Just remember …a fresh glass of juice is the best snack one can have when you’re on the run!!
