Good morning all!
This morning I woke up and made a juice for breakfast. Juicing in the morning before you eat anything else is a great way to start the day, and super health beneficial. Actually, the best time to consume juice is on an empty stomach. Try to drink your juice at least 30 minutes before a meal. When you drink juice while your body is hungry for nutrients, all the nutrients are quickly absorbed. Similarly, when you grab a donut or something harmful, it is just as quickly absorbed as well. SO CHOOSE WISELY. Try to drink fruit juices in the first half of your day, because they provide complex carbohydrates to fuel your day. Towards the second half lean towards vegetable juices.
You should drink your juice right away! Juice does not hold as well as in its natural form. When exposed to air, the juice quickly oxidizes and spoils. So drink your juice shortly after making it. You will know if your juice is spoiled because it will turn brown and have a metallic taste to it. If you have a high centrifugal juicer, the high speed spinning causes a change in +ve and -ve of the juice and causes it to oxidize quicker. However if you have a gear juicer, like I do, you can store your juices up to 24 hours.
This morning I used 3 carrots, 1 orange, 1 green apple, and 1 cucumber, and it made 16 ounces.
So I challenge you to to trade out a bad habit for a better one today! For example, switch out your daily coffee with a fresh juice:) your body will thank you.
