Many people have heard about juicing and are thinking about getting started. They may begin thinking it is easy and then quickly become discouraged because it takes a bit more effort than they thought it would. But once they know how to juice and how to work it into their schedule then it becomes something they can enjoy for a lifetime.
The first thing anyone wanting to juice will need is, of course, a juicer. It is possible to do a limited amount of juicing without a machine but for almost everyone, a juicer will be a requirement. Fortunately, juicers can be found in all types of price ranges, shapes and sizes. Each person shopping for a new juicer should balance price against convenience and quality.
Once a person has their new juicer then they will need something to juice. For this, they should prepare a list of those things they wish to buy at the supermarket. Many people we’ll take the time to do a little research online or by reading books to gather some recipes so that they know the different types of vegetables and fruits they will need when they are ready to begin juicing.
It is not recommended that someone prepares more than a day’s worth of servings of the juice. But they can prepare the whole days worth of juice in the morning so that it is readily available throughout the day. To do this, it is best to prepare the vegetables and fruit the night before.
Washing the vegetables and fruit the night before and putting them out ready to go is highly recommended. Having the blender clean and ready to go is another thing anyone can easily do to have everything ready and prepared for the morning juicing. They may even want to place some of the items in the refrigerator so that they are chilled.
How To Juice
1. Cut or otherwise prepare the produce into pieces that are small enough to easily place into the juicer. It is important not to do this step until just before the juicing will begin. The reason is, some of the vegetables will begin to immediately lose nutrition the longer they are exposed.
2. Begin putting the produce into the juicer. If the juicer has multiple speeds then some fruits and vegetables that are very soft may need a lower speed, while others may need to be juiced on a higher speed. Very often a guide will be included with the juicer that gives instructions and best practices to get the very best result.
3. Drink and enjoy the Juice. Ideally, the juice should be drunk immediately after juicing. The reason is that the nutrition begins to reduce immediately. That said, it is still better to prepare the days worth of juicing if that is convenient and will help the person to consume more juice throughout the day.
At first, it might seem time-consuming but once a person gets used to it, juicing can become part of their routine. It won’t take long before the person will feel a difference in their health. Get started juicing today by following this simple how-to guide.
