Juicing Fruits and Vegetables: Why?

| 4 Comments

JuiceJuicing fruits and vegetables gives you all the good enzymes, minerals, vitamins, co-factors, chlorophyll, anti-oxidants, phytonutrients and all other nutrients your body craves. You can’t think of a better way to energize and alkalize your body naturally.

Nothing will super charge your health like raw fresh green vegetable juice!

How to Juice

  1. Wash the vegetables & fruits.
  2. Depending on the kind of raw food or juicer, you might have to pre-cut.
  3. For juicing green vegetables and grasses – use a twin gear juicer such as a Green Star Juicer or Champion Juicer.
  4. For juicing harder vegetables such as carrots or soft veggies such as cucumber, it’s easier and quicker to use a centrifuge juicer. You can perfectly juice them in the Green Star or Champion Juicer, but it takes a little more time to juice them and then clean the machine.
  5. Juice the soft fruits and veggies first. Then the harder and tougher ones (like carrots). The latter will push the softer ones through.

Benefits of Juicing

  • Juicing breaks cell walls of whole foods including tomatoes and carrots. This way you make it easy for your body to absorb all the wonderful nutrients of the vegetables and fruits.
  • Juice is absorbed within 20 min. You don’t have to waste energy to digest the foods. Nothing energizes you quicker than juice.
  • Best way to consume high volumes of greens. Some people wonder, how they can ever eat all the greens that are recommended. Juicing is the solution.
  • Greens are the most alkalizing, mineralizing and healthiest foods. But not always the most palatable. By juicing vegetables you can mix with apples or carrots for better taste.
  • Juicing only takes a few minutes. More than blending but still quick and much faster and easier than cooking.
  • No pans to scrub. Juicers are relatively quick and easy to clean – especially the centrifuge juicers.
  • Juicers operate much quieter than the Vitamix blender or Blendtec blender. Especially the best raw food juicer: the Greenstar. So you can juice your vegetables late at night without waking up your neighbors or kids.
  • Juicing is easy to learn and you can make and adapt recipes are easily

  1. I’ve been following Jason Vale’s juicing programme i.e. I’ve achieved 5 days and 2 x 7 days (one last week) and lost a few pounds as I wanted. My question is, can someone juice every day without eating solids?

  2. Well Sonja, in my opinion the question should be “why…?” and not can someone…?”. Juicing is very important particularly during the hot season as you get all the vitamins an minerals you need; proper sugars are available very fast and you hydrates your body perfectly. But you need even to balance with different foods; most of them can be eaten mainly via solids (proteins, fibers, etc…).
    I’m not vegan and either a vegetarian; I follow a balanced diet with proper physical activity.
    I eat white meat just once a week, fish three times a week, pasta with tomato once a week and a lot of vegetables during all the day (fruits mainly at breakfast and in the afternoon). That’s a diet that makes me feel perfectly and in good shape.
    Try to supplement with natural products like Asea as well….you will feel the difference.
    Have a great day!

    • Thank you, Matteo. Friends etc keep saying I need to eat food with protein, that I’m not going to get them through juicing. I was drinking Asea and will do so again but I am waiting for my next blood test to see how my cholesterol and diabetes are doing. Anyway I feel great right now.
      Thanks for having opened my eyes! 🙂

      • My pleasure Sonja! If you have diabetes issues try to avoid juicing at dinner or night, because even if you get good sugars they tend to be absorbed by your body if you don’t burn them with some activity. Thus your body has to produce insuline to metabolize them.
        At the end, if want to avoid aniaml proteins there are a lot of waysto assimilate them. For example by adding some soy milk or soy yogurt to your juices…
        Anyway if you would like to continue on this kind of nutrition it’s better to ask a nutritionist for advice on a long term diet.
