WHAT IS JUICING?
Juicing separates the fruit or veggie from the pulp (fiber), leaving a smooth juice. However, this also removes the fiber so you may also choose to alternate between drinking juices and smoothies to balance out your fiber intake.
WHAT SHOULD YOU JUICE?
If it’s a fruit, vegetable, or herb — you can juice it (Yes, we even mean beets and turnips). While fresh fruit is in the limelight for juice, don’t forget about herbs and bitter veggies, which can add both flavor and extra nutrients, too. Lemon and lime add a fresh zing. Ginger can add some warmth. Parsley, cilantro, and mint also make delicious additions to your favorite juice combination.
