If you don’t like the taste of raw vegetables, like is the case with most people, juicing is a good

way to take in the nutrients.

A glass of fresh juice supplies your daily dose of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

You even get to consume additional nutrients which would have been destroyed by heat when 

cooking.

You must have been taught about the importance of vegetables from childhood, but for some

reason, it is always easier to turn to processed foods.

people with each passing day.

You may have seen a number of appeals requiring you to  for such cases.  

For these reasons, you have to make an effort to at all cost.    

If you don’t like the idea of staring at a bunch of vegetables on your plate or

, drink them instead.

Make the juice tasty by mixing ingredients

Some vegetables have a foul taste, but this should not make you avoid them altogether.

There are plenty of delightful tasting vegetables and fruits that you can add to make

the drink bearable.

Most ingredients can be divided into 3 according to their tastes: sweet, sour and spicy.

Spicy here refers to something like garlic or rosemary.

Try to have each of the 3 flavors represented in your juicer, and you’ll end up with a

great tasting glass of juice.

You do not have to peel your vegetables and fruits,

if anything, that peel contains plenty of nutrients

You can make an exception if the peels are too hard for the model of juicer that you’re using.

Hairy peels are not good for juicing either.

It is also important to note that some fruits have a thin layer of wax applied to prevent

moisture loss and keep it crisp.

Although this is not encouraged due to the health effects of such wax, vendors continue

to do so.

If this is the case, ensure that you wash with hot water or eliminate the peel altogether.

Sip the juice as you go along to ensure that 

the ingredients are blending in just fine

For instance, if the juice is a tad too sweet, you can squeeze in some lemon to even it out.

If it turns out too sour, you can add some mango.

It is a balancing act.

Ensure that you add only small portions at a time to avoid overdoing it.

Eventually, you should end up with a drink that perfectly suits your taste.

Pay attention to the color of your juice

Some vegetables and fruits produce juice that does not have any particular color; maybe

shade of gray or brown.

Remember any consumption starts with the eyes; the final product should be appealing

to the eye.

Include an ingredient with a vibrant color like a beetroot.

Include leafy vegetables and supplements in your juice

Most people avoid them due to their unpleasant taste.

As we have mentioned, add tasty ingredients into the mixture to make it palatable.

Greens are very rich in nutrients which should be consumed at all cost.

Likewise, people will tend to add supplements to their juices from protein, added

vitamins or .

“With a glass a day, you’ll 

be well on your way to

better health.”

 

With these tips, you should be able to enjoy your first glass of fresh juice pretty soon.

Avoid adding too many sweet fruits as you could end up with a blood sugar spike.

Otherwise, feel free to enjoy the juice every day.

Let it be your alternative to the carbonated drinks.

With a glass a day, you’ll be well on your way to better health.
