How many raw fruits and vegetables do you eat in a day? How many could you eat? (Be honest…your stomach only has so much room!) When you juice raw fruits and veggies, you are getting the full nutritional value of the fresh, raw fruits and vegetables–more than the average person can fit into his/her diet normally!
When you juice, your body absorbs the nutrients better. Why? There’s no plant fiber to get in the way…pretty much just liquid vitamins at this point. The process of juicing helps to begin to break down vegetables, making it easier for our body to digest them. When we eat raw vegetables, especially fibrous vegetables, our bodies cannot break them down fully, so we miss out on a lot of nutrition. Juicing means that we get nutrition into our bodies, where it belongs!
Juicing is the easy way to get your six to eight servings of vegetables a day. Cooked vegetables lose nutrition; raw vegetables pack a powerful nutritional punch. You can get an entire day’s worth of vegetables in a single glass of vegetable juice.
When you cook and eat vegetables or have a salad, you tend to use the same greens and the same vegetables all the time, right? It is so easy to fall into a comfortable pattern! Diversify your diet–start juicing! Because you are juicing more than one vegetable at a time, you can mix and match your flavors, so your choices are endless when it comes to flavor combinations…and nutrient combinations as well!
