Juicing for Energy
My body just loves vegetable juice.
There are a number of reasons why I drink juice, now I have to say I do not always manage to drink a veggie juice every day of the month, but I do in the main eat between 6-10 portions of the colourful stuff, for instance I have been at home today, well actually I have been at home all week because I caught a nasty virus which has made me realise I need to stop and take care of my body.
I had overloaded myself last week and stretched myself too thin, something I attempt not to do but it happens. On those occasions when I take on too much my nutrition suffers……
However drum role….I can quickly revive the body over a couple of days by drinking a pint or two of veggie juice each day.
Here’s a few things to remember;
- Juice is not a substitute for meals unless you are on a juice feast but will help you to take smaller portions if that is your focus.
- Juicing is easier for the body to get a wide variety of concentrated nutrients
- It’s easy to disguise vegetables which you may not like as much in a juice
- Eat your fruits whole but juice your greens
Heres a good article on juicing for beginners by Dr Mercola
Meanwhile back to my second juice this afternoon 🙂
