Juicing to be ready for adventure

See also

January is the month where many people decide to change their lives for the better. However, a lot of times, by the end of the month many people have fallen off the wagon. Adding a fresh juice to your diet each day is something simple, easy, and there is no deprivation involved-in fact it's the opposite! In order to be healthy and ready for adventure, you need to be nourished. You can gain some great health benefits by adding juicing as a part of a healthy diet. Here are a few benefits that you can obtain.

1. Juicing can help you to absorb more nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. Your body does not have to work nearly as hard to digest juice as it would if you were to eat all the ingredients in the juice. By drinking veggies and fruits, you make it easy for your body to absorb all the great vitamins and minerals that are contained in them.

2. Juicing helps you to meet the recommended intake for fruits and vegetables. It can be hard to eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. It can also be time consuming to prepare produce to be a part of a meal. Juicing is great because you can drink some of those servings to provide some variety to your diet. Also, if you're not the biggest fan of fresh produce, drinking it makes it go by much faster.

Juicing can easily become an integral part of your diet!

Here are a few recipes that are great for newbies:

1. Green juice

5 leaves of kale

2 handfuls of spinach

2 stalks of celery

1 green apple

1 lemon

1 thumb of ginger
