If you haven't already tried juicing or haven't done it in awhile, it's time to dust off the old juicer in the cabinet or go out and buy yourself your first one to give it a go.
Juicing is a great way to give your body a rest from all the work it has to do in order to digest, break down and absorb the food we eat. Instead we can use our juicers to break down the food for us into a liquid form that can be absorbed straight into our blood stream to be used by all the cells in the body. This gives us a boost of nutrition many of us do not get first thing in the morning.
The key to keeping these healthy is to focus on vegetable based juices rather then fruity ones to reduce the amount of sugar (even though its natural) that goes quickly into the blood which will have an effect on blood sugar levels. Experiment with different vegetables, play around with flavours and tempt your tastebuds for a great start to the day, afternoon snack or post exercise refuel.
This is one that I created recently and I threw in the following ingredients that were in my fridge:
Add 1/2 the apple followed by the other ingredients (not the avocado and ice), then add the juice to the blender with the avocado and ice and enjoy in your favourite glass.
Let me know what you have created recently, sharing the juice forward.
