If you came here looking for advice on how you can benefit from the power of juicing, then you have
come to the right spot. This article and this link, http://www.healthyeatingwithease.com/healthiest-fast-
food/, are packed full of great ideas and suggestions, as well as information on how juicing at home can
benefit you and your health.



I'd highly recommend buying a juicer with a brand name over one that you don't recognize the name of.
Brand name juicers are more likely to last a long time, and will usually have a warranty or guarantee to
back their claims up. Smaller companies can be fly-by-night, and you tend to get what you pay for.



Keep sugar content down by limiting fruits and certain vegetables. One of the things to watch out for
when you are juicing are high sugar levels found in many fruits. High sugar levels can lead to a spike in
blood sugar, so keep that in mind as you choose your ingredients. Vegetables grown underground such
as carrots usually have a higher sugar content as well.



When it comes to juicing, one thing that you want to keep in mind is that the best way to keep your
juice from changing color is to add lemon juice to it. This is important because often times fresh juice
can take on a distasteful color that may prevent you or others from drinking it.



Juices start losing their nutrients right after they are made. If you are making juices to balance your diet,
make sure to drink them immediately. Do not make a large quantity of juice and plan on drinking it later
if you need the vitamins and nutrients contained in the juice.



Learn to love wheat grass if you can. Start your wheat grass relationship off very slowly as it is an
extremely strong tasting plant. The nutrient benefits are out of this world but some people think the
taste is as well. Use strongly flavored fruits and small amounts of wheatgrass and work your way up to
larger amounts over time.
When starting to juice it's better to start slow. Use flavors you already know you like and don't try new
things until you know you're ready. Start by mixing new flavors, like wheat grass, with fruit you've
already been drinking. Soon enough you'll be able to move on to pro recipes!



Masticating-type juicers are to be preferred for getting the maximum health benefits out of the juicing
process. These juicers treat fruit and vegetables very delicately, avoiding any heat or stress that can
break up the vital nutrients in the raw food. Juice from masticating juicers also performs best in storage
and provides the longest possible shelf-life.



Throw away your ideas on what a fruit or vegetable should look like when buying organic produce to
juice. An apple doesn't have to be perfectly round as you're just going to be cutting it up and throwing it
in a juicer anyway! Stick to the basics of knowing if a fruit or vegetable will be edible or not, like
squeezing it or checking it's color.



You don't have to know a lot in order to juice. Part of the fun is experimenting and learning what you
like and don't like. This article and this link, http://www.healthyeatingwithease.com/healthy-lunch/,
have shown you just how easy it can be to start in the process, but the fun part is up to you.
