Juice Up !
Updated: Mar 27
Juicing is a great way to get in important nutrients. It provides a way to access digestive enzymes typically locked away in the fiber of whole fruits and vegetables. Juicing nourishes the digestive system and also provides certain phyto-nutrients and compounds that normally aren't available to us simply by chewing.
When I first began juicing, it was because veggies and fruits looked cute in liquid form as opposed to their solid form, lol. But the more I enjoyed mixing varieties, the more I became aware of what I was taking in and how it was of benefit to my body. I'd spend my free time on the internet looking at fruit combinations, vegetable combinations, fruit + veggie combinations and the more I learnt, the more I'd get excited to go grocery shopping. Luckily, my mom is also big on juicing so we do it more often than not.
I've discovered a couple of juice "cures" which help with certain ailments that I'll be sharing in a series of posts.
- Fresh cabbage
You can find these veggies at most, if not all grocery stores.
Quantities entirely depend on you and how much juice you'd like to make.
PS - for a great tasting juice and to get all the nutrients, use the ingredients while fresh !
