Best Juicing Tips

#1 Use the Right Juicer

Before starting your juicing journey you need to make sure you have the best juicer for your specific  needs. What is the best juicer....for you? Everyone has their own juicing needs and choosing a juicer that will fit those needs is always a good idea.

Do you plan on juicing every day, do you plan to juice a lot of leafy greens or wheat-grass, maybe you plan on using a lot of soft fruits in your juice or don't have much time to spend on juicing. Knowing the answers to these and other juicing questions can help you choose the right juicer for you.

#2 Plan Ahead

Make a list of the fruits and vegetables that you plan to juice and how often you plan on juicing before going shopping, this will ensure you have enough fruits and veggies on hand for your juicing needs.

Additionally, you can prepare your fruits and vegetables the night before if you plan on juicing in the morning. This can save you some time if you are in a hurry to get your day started.

#3 Drink Your Juice for Breakfast

In order to get the most from your fresh juice you should drink it as your first meal of the day on an empty stomach.

#4 Chew Your Juice

when drinking your juice you should chew it. I know it sounds funny but the motion of chewing creates saliva that will help the juice be digested quicker. The faster you digest the juice the faster the nutrients and vitamins will begin to work. This is a part of why juicing can give you such a big boost of energy.

#5 Drink Immediately

You should always drink your juice right away. As the juice sits it will start to oxidize and the nutrients and vitamins will begin to break down. Juice can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight glass container for up to 72 hours, depending on the type of juicer you use, however you should try and drink it immediately if possible.

#6 Alternate Fruits and Vegetables

This tip actually covers two things, firstly, you should make it a practice to switch between harder fruits and vegetables and softer ones when adding them to your juicer. This will help to make your juicer work more optimally.

Second, you should also make it a habit to use different fruits and vegetables in your juice recipes.  You really can have to much of a good thing, for example cauliflower and spinach contain oxilates that in large doses can cause or worsen kidney stones. Kale, broccoli and cabbage contain goitrogens that in large doses can hamper the the function of the thyroid gland.
