Get ready to squeeze the day!

Wondering how to get those recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables into your daily diet? Juicing may be the answer! When you juice fruits and vegetables, you typically have to use more of the produce: Instead of eating one stalk of celery, you’re juicing several stalks of celery, which means you get more of the phytochemicals and micronutrients that make juicing so beneficial.

Keep in mind…

One drawback to juicing is that the process removes the fiber that can help you feel fuller longer and helps keep digestion in check. When you start juicing for the first time, keep it low on sugar! Strive for a healthy mix of mostly veggies with a bit of fruit for a sweet variety of nutritional benefits. A four-ounce serving of fruit juice is equivalent to a whole serving of fruit. So add in all the greens you like with a bit of fruit for a balanced refreshment full of goodness.

Power up with nutritious add-ins

Another great way to boost flavor and nutrition without excess sugar is to find simple add-ins. Try a little earthy turmeric root for its curcuminoids that lend powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to your drink. Ginger will add a spicy zip to your sip and promote better digestion. A dash of cinnamon adds great flavor and is high in antioxidants.
