As it appears, there’s no stopping everyone in leading a healthy lifestyle. More and more creative ways of preparing healthy food are on the rise. Latest on the list? Juicing.
Juicing fruits and vegetables is an excellent way to satisfy your daily intake requirement which is two whole fruits and three veggies per day. By juicing your fruits and veggies, you do not only offer an alternative way of serving them, but you can also mix in a set of fruits and veggies in one drink. So that’s taking in different kinds of nutrients in just one big gulp!
Warning for Diabetics
But while fruit and vegetable juices are undeniably healthy, this wonder drink may not be suitable for some people, like those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. This is because juices, especially those fruit juices, have higher sugar and fructose contents. It is best that diabetics limit their intake of these kinds of drinks until they normalize their bodies’ sugar levels.
Make Use of Those Pulps
But after extracting the juice from the fruits or veggies, what do you do with those pulps? There are a lot of ways you can do with them so that they won’t be put to waste just like that. These pulps can make a healthy ingredient to muffins and cookies. Or better yet, add them into your juice itself! Most of the nutrients in fruits and veggies are on their skin and pulp, so it would be just a waste if you just throw these after extracting the juice.
Juicing is fun and easy. Who knows, this could even be good bonding activity for the family!
