4 Reasons You Need A Juicer
By Alexis Mills
If you are undecided or on the fence about getting a juicer to add to your kitchen appliance collection, I promise you will not regret it. If you are an avid pressed juice drinker, this addition will give you the freedom to make exactly what you like in the convenience of your home. Plus, it's a delicious way to drink your veggies!
It's Great For Your Health
Great health is a good enough reason for me to incorporate juicing into daily life. Making fresh vegetable and fruit juices will enhance your natural energy and feed yourself more nutrients. Juicing removes the fiber and extracts the vitamins and minerals, making it the best way to absorb it. Also, if your digestive system has issues with raw vegetables, this is a great way to get the nutrients without your digestive system having to work to hard. Juicing is one the best ways at preventative health care and helping the body heal itself. Plants do heal and juicing is the best way to get instant infusion of concentrated vitamins.
While the prices of juicers vary greatly, no matter what you go with it will save you from the $10 pressed juices at the store. Plus, buying the fruits and veggies to go into your juicer are so much cheaper than the actual drinks. If you are looking to get a deal on a juicer, check out local discounted stores and sometimes you will be lucky and find one. I got mine at HomeGoods for half the price.
Drink the Rainbow
If you are looking to increase your daily intake of fruits and vegetables, but don't want the extra calories, juicing is your answer. Be able to drink your way to health and enjoy your favorite juice instead of an afternoon coffee.
Customize Your Juices
Depending on what you are looking for -- more energy, decreased inflammation, aid in mental health or any other health issue -- you can customize your juice to suit what you are looking for. Different vegetables and fruits have different effects on the body, and you can look up recipes that do exactly what you are looking for.
What to Look for in A Juicer
If you are looking to make your at-home juicing as convenient as possible, consider the following features.
- Dishwasher-safe attachments
- Wide feed tubes to save time
- Separate pulp container
Although it's not necessarily a replacement for eating actual fruits and vegetables -- the solid form includes the fiber, after all, and fiber is important to the body -- a juicer can be an easy way to consume your veggies or other fruits.
