If you are concerned with having a healthy nutrition and lifestyle, you may be aware of the benefits of juicing for your body. You may have tried lots of combinations, some good, some others quite difficult to swallow. You have done all these in search for the best juicing recipe. If you haven’t reached any conclusion so far, you have to be aware that juicing can have different purposes. Depending on the purpose, some recipes are going to be useful while others won’t have any health value.
For instance, if you use juicing as an weight loss method, you should avoid fruits and focus rather on various vegetables and leafy greens. Fruits are very rich in sugar, so their juice contains a lot of calories. This is why they aren’t so good for weight loss. However, if you want to drink juice for improving your daily energy and stamina, you don’t have to count the calories so strictly. The best juicing recipe for you is going to be the one that’s going to give you the biggest amount of energy, while also leaving an enjoyable taste in your mouth.
The basic method to discover the best recipe for you is to make a note of the purpose you drink juice for, and then write down all vitamins, minerals and trace elements that have the power to bring you closer to your purpose. The next step is to do some research in order to find out what fruits and vegetables contain the greatest amount of each element on your list. If you lack iron, spinach should be on your list. If you need vitamin C supplementation, you should include oranges. If your body craves for beta-carotene, carrots should be one of your top priorities.
When you are done with the list, you have to find the right combinations, as you want your juices to have an acceptable taste. You probably know you should never add sugar, as it is going to spoil your intentions. You have to drink the juice immediately after you make it, without any added ingredient. This is why you need to discover those recipes that are going to provide you the best from both worlds, health and taste. You can play with the quantities in order to add more of the fruits or vegetables you like and less of those you hate. Play with these combinations until you reach an acceptable taste. If you can’t get to like a certain combination, but you still want to drink it for the sake of your healthy living, consider adding a little fresh ginger in the juicer, together with the other ingredients. Ginger has a very strong flavor and a stingy taste, very effective in covering all other flavors in the juice. This is how you can get used to drink even combinations of bad tasting ingredients such as beetroots and broccoli.
Last but not least, make sure you document your trials, so that you can repeat a certain recipe afterwards. You can even consider writing a book and selling it on Amazon to help other people improve their juicing experience.
