Have you jumped on the raw juice bandwagon yet? If you are looking for health improvement this is a great way to increase your fruit and vegetables consumption and in turn, trend in a healthier direction.
According to RawJuiceGuru.com, “Raw Juicing not only eliminates the need for munching and chewing high quantities of greens and vegetables, it also minimizes the body’s digestive effort, since nutrients are absorbed into blood stream within minutes. Juicing breaks done fibers in the vegetables, making it easier to absorb all the nutrients… it heals, it nourishes and regenerates your whole body.”
This guru goes on to talk about live enzymes being “the catalyst for every human function” and how these enzymes do not survive being cooked above 118 degrees. Raw juice is a great source of live enzymes.
If you like experimenting, it is interesting to mix greens such as kale leaves (a super food) with naturally sweet fruit like grapes and/or strawberries. Although the kale’s green color might overpower the drink, the fruit offsets its taste gifting a delicious refreshment. It is a smart way to consume your vegies if you are not a fan of greens like kale and spinach.
