If you’re not a big fan of having to make juices from scratch, you might want to give juicing a try. In this article, we’ll look at the pros and cons of juicing. But first, why are we talking about juice?
In recent years, lots of research has been done to show just how important fruit and vegetable intake is too good health. Just taking a few servings of fruits and vegetables is good for the heart, for weight loss, and for overall good health. And as we get older, the number of “good” foods that we need is going down as well. It’s sad to see, but it’s true.
Juicing isn’t a complicated thing to do. Most people can handle the actual process of making and storing juice themselves. There are, however, a few things that you should know.
Juicing is something that works best for most people who have limited space. At home, it makes sense to use smaller equipment and even carts to do it. This way, you can squeeze your fruits and vegetables directly into your juicer without worrying about ruining it. You’ll have to be sure to store your juicer properly though in order to keep it in good working order.
You want to consider using fairly heavy-duty, rather than very light stainless steel or other pretty sturdy material for the parts of your juicer. This is because juices tend to contain more water than most other kinds of food. As a result, you don’t want the juicer to shake or warp too much if it is made from plastic or something else that is soft.
Juicers are constantly changing, so they need to be stored in such a way that the parts aren’t going to get too hot or cold too quickly. Some people store their juicers in the freezer, while others place them in a bag of dry ice and then put them in the freezer overnight. Whichever way you decide to store them, keep in mind that the cooler the air temperature is, the longer it will take the juicer to heat up again.
Juicers also need to be well insulated, since most juices are high in proteins and other foods that don’t have very little or no extra moisture in them. For this reason, it is a good idea to have your juicer set up with lots of tight spaces around it. This way, you can squeeze out all the juice from the fruit and veggies without letting anything else get knocked about. This is another reason why you’ll want to keep your juicer well out of reach of small children and pets.
It’s also a good idea to be prepared for various types of damage to your juicer. Don’t let water get into the juicer’s moving parts. You’ll also want to make sure that the juicer doesn’t get wet places to sit for a long period of time. You’ll even want to be aware of harmful bacteria that could get on the outside of your juicer.
If you’re afraid that your juicer is going to have problems, you can either try to replace it or just stick with buying a new one. If you don’t like the taste of the juices you’re making or the texture of the items you’re juicing, there are other alternatives to juicing.
Even though you’re not likely to get sick or gain weight by doing juicing, you will lose some of the weight that you normally would by eating healthy and getting plenty of exercise. The better way to go about it is to have a juice fast, or even take a leaf of fresh lemon or lime out of your own mouth and chew it.
Juicing is a wonderful way to improve your nutrition. Give it a try!
