20 healthy juice recipes / The benefits of using a slow masticating juicer




We just recently purchased a juicer from Amazon and started playing with recipes to make delicious yet healthy juices.


A cup of fresh juice that contains natural ingredients, vitamins and enzymes can provide what the body needs to function and it is also gentle on the stomach because it is easy to absorb. It is the easiest way to add vitamins and essential minerals to your daily diet to help prevent diseases, nurture the immune system and even aid in delaying skin aging process.


A tip when preparing recipes for the morning while on empty stomach is to avoid higher-acidity juice as it can cause some discomfort. Also, keep in mind that juices should be consumed in moderation, one to two 250ml juice cups per day for adults and one to two 150ml juice cups per day for children.





Choosing a juicer


There are hundreds of juicers available on the market for sale and if you don't know exactly what you want from your juicer then the task might become a little more daunting and even tiring.


We opted to purchase a slow masticating juicer for a couple of reasons:


  • The juice quality - Centrifugal juicers cause heat , friction and oxidation to turn the fruit into juice which can break down and destroy certain vitamins and minerals, while the slow masticating juicer preserves 100% of the real nutritional value.

  • No chunks, no hair - Since the masticating juicer squeezes the juice out of the vegetables and fruits, there will be no chunks and big pieces in the juice and no pineapple hair either.

  • More Fiber - Fiber is needed for a healthy digestion and centrifugal juicers breaks down those fibers that our bodies can use. Masticating juices preserve those fibers and with that you have a juice that is more potent and has more protein as well.






Finding the best juicer for you


What is most important to you when purchasing a slow juicer? Is it noise, is it speed, is it price? Find out what really matters to you and your family so you can buy the juicer that really fits your wants and needs.

I also got my cranberry hibiscus at Echo in Ft. Myers over 13 years ago and I love that they still pop up in my yard. I've been trying to find the exact macros this plant provides to your diet but all I ever come up with is info on either the tea or the flowers. I use the leaves in my salads daily when its growing fresh in my yard. I do prefer the smaller leaves for salad. Any additional info you may have is appreciated!
