Juicing for a Healthy Lifestyle

Juicing and a Healthier You!

What is juicing?

JuicingJuicing is the process of extracting juice from plant tissues such as fruit or vegetables.

Are you ready to give juicing a whirl? It's an easy way to get more fruits and veggies into your diet.

There are a few things you should know about juicing:

Juice and smoothies are not the same thing. A smoothie is made in a blender. It isblended, not juiced. With a smoothie, you retain the pulp, which is insoluble fiber. A blended drink yields a lot more because of the pulp.

Juice is juiced with a juicer. Juicers 'juice' your produce and separate the pulp, the insoluble fiber, from it. You discard the pulp and drink the juice. You still get fiber in the form of soluble fiber.

What is Fiber? Fiber has a very important role to play in the body, it is the indigestible component of whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Read more on fiber.

There are "Pros" and "Cons" of juicing.



How to Choose the Best Juicer For You

When I first started juicing about 7 years ago, I bought a Black & Decker juicer that was reasonably priced from Walmart. I figured if Black & Decker make great tools, they can't go wrong with a juicer. I still use that juicer today. I did upgrade!
