Green Goodness Juice

image

Juicing is definitely gaining popularity. I first began learning about juicing in the Hungry for Change documentary http://www.hungryforchange.tv/ Afterwards, I was intrigued and curious to learn more. After (what felt like) extensive research, I purchased a Breville Juice Fountain which is a centrifugal juicing system. I’ve been juicing several times a week and have been loving experimenting with new creations. I definitely have increased my daily veggie intake and I have also been a having fun trying out new items from the produce section! Experts say that there are many benefits to drinking fresh juice including an improved immune system, increased energy and clear skin. No wonder it is becoming popular!

  1. This looks great! I’ve been on the search for a good green juice recipe so will give this a go… Do you have any tips on how to avoid juice coming out too thick? I have a Vitamix but always seem to make my juices far too dense and more like a thick smoothie/soup than a juice! 🙂

  2. Hi! Thanks for the question! The difference is whether you use a juicer or a blender. A juicer removes the pulp and fiber from the fruits and vegetables where a blender mixes everything you put in. There definitely are benefits to both and I drink fresh juice as well as smoothies regularly. I have a Breville Juice Fountain that has been going strong for over a year and I am really happy with. If you want more info on the benefits of juicing, I would recommend Hungry for Change documentary which you can watch online or on Netflicks. I also have the Juicing Bible second edition which I use as a reference. Thanks for your visit! Good luck 🙂
