It can be a challenge to get the recommended five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Juicing is a great way to get vitamins, minerals and antioxidants you might not eat. Juicers cost between $50 and $300. Some will allow you to throw in the food whole, while others require you to peel and core. Dietitians say the beauty of juicing is you can incorporate fruits and veggies you may not normally eat, like spinach. The juice will stay safe in the refrigerator for about a week, but it’s best if it is used within the first few days to get the most nutrients. Adding fiber to it can be helpful as well, like Chia seeds, to help keep you full since most of the fiber is taken out during the juicing process.
Do you juice? What do you use in your juicer? Do you feel this helps you get the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet?
