Juicing for Dummies

Juicer_JC3240 copyA glass of juice is refreshingly healthy, unlike anything else. And you don’t need a Doctor to tell you its benefits. Nevertheless, here is one single reason why you should start Juice Therapy! It helps you absorb all the nutrients in a very efficient way. The biggest problem with veggie juicing is that people don’t know which vegetables to begin with and are often put-off because they find themselves with a too strong or too boring juice. So here we are with a Beginner’s guide to Veggie Juicing.

Begin with veggie juices that are palatable. Right now, you need to get used to the idea of vegetables as juices rather than going for vegetables with the most nutrients. The first five on your list should be: Celery, Fennel (anise), Tomatoes, Carrots and Cucumbers. They are the easiest to digest and tolerate.

Now, that you are comfortably into veggie juices, it is time to move on to the second stage. Here, you could start juicing vegetables like Red and Green leaf lettuce, Romaine lettuce, Endive, Escarole and Spinach.  Lettuce juice with its vitamins and minerals has numerous health benefits, besides being a very appetizing beverage.  You can also mix in other healthy vegetables and fruits such as apples and carrots to make your drink taste more pleasant.

A budding Veggie Juicer, it is time for you to experiment by mixing various vegetables, fruits and herbs. Two of the most used herbal mixes in veggie juicing are Parsley and Cilantro. Always begin with very small quantities. Herbs are more challenging to consume, but they are highly beneficial.

The last stage involves bitter veggies, which also happen to be nutrient mines. Say ‘hello’ to your friends Lemon and Limes. You will need their help to keep juicing.  Add ¼ to ½ lemons or lime in the various juices to effectively counter their bitterness. Kale, Collard Greens, Dandelion Greens and Mustard Greens (bitter) are the bitter veggies you are going for at this final stage before officially declaring yourself a ‘Hardcore Juicer.’
