On cold, winter mornings, the warmth of the bed can make getting up difficult. While some turn to a cup of caffeine to get the body moving, a refreshing glass of fresh juice can start the day right. Juicing is a quick way to get vitamins, minerals, enzymes, carbohydrates, chlorophyll and many other nutrients.
Time and time again, the mantra of five servings of fruit and vegetables of day is heard in our heads. A glass of fresh juice contains one serving towards the daily goal. Plus, this juice can help support the body's natural cleansing, digestion and support the immune system.
Juicing can be a simple, quick process. In reality, the fruit and vegetable prep work takes longer than the juicing itself. With any new endeavor, introduce flavors that you enjoy and build up to more adventurous combinations.
