green juice: juicing is bad for you?

 

Almost every night my husband and I sit on our balcony and drink one of our favourite green juices. I’m not big on juice cleanses and substituting juice for food, but a green juice in the morning and/or evening is actually very beneficial to your health!

While I do obviously believe in eating whole foods (literally in this sense), juicing actually isn’t any more beneficial to your body from eating the fruit whole – it’s actually not as good for you.

It’s suggested that when juicing (whether you use a juicer or a blender) you use the whole fruit or veggie. The skin on the fruits and vegetables that we eat actually carry a lot of beneficial properties that you may not know about – a lot of the nutrients from these foods actually comes from the skin! For example, the skin of an apple contains about half of the apples overall dietary fiber. Potato skin actually carries more vitamins and minerals than the whole potato itself and finally citrus fruits have twice as much vitamin C than what’s under the skin.

Moral of the story, juicing can help you loose weight – as long as your within your chloric intake. Yes your body can digest liquids a lot quicker and more easily appose to sold foods BUT we all know that being skinny and being healthy are two different things. Just be mindful of what your putting into your body, eat whole REAL foods with REAL nutrients that will give your body strength and energy it needs for the day. Drinking a juice here and there won’t kill you – everything in moderation is key.

Benefits of chlorophyll: helps fight cancer, improves skin, promotes weight loss, helps wounds heal faster and improves digestion.

Benefits of dandelion: high in antioxidants, cleanses liver and protects bones.

Benefits of ginger:  contains a high level of medical properties, helps aid in upset stomachs, reduce muscle pain and soreness.

Benefits of water: clears skin, speeds up metabolism and flushes out toxins.
