Summer has been a smorgasborg of garden bounty. I’ve also found a wonderful place to get quality, US-grown produce at good prices. In celebration, my juicer has left the cupboard and found a new home on the counter. I’m not crazy about any sort of extreme diet or cleansing, I’m juicing once or twice a day along with my regular whole grain, whole food meals. Once for breakfast, and sometimes again with lunch or at tea-time. I love juicing, it always feels (and TASTES!!) so great.
Some key things to remember:
Use quality produce with as few pesticides as possible.
Mix your veggies and fruits for a well-rounded juicing plan.
Drink water, too, throughout the day to help process all those yummy nutrients!
Juicing has a lot of benefits. It is reputed to lower calorie intake, help you eat less (if you need to), cleanse the colon, kidneys and liver, reduce stress, improve skin tone, boost energy and metabolism,and yes, even fight cancer.
