This morning instead of going to the gym, I decided to get in to work early so I can hit up my only KB class for the week. With all these meetings in the evenings I havenâ€™t been able to take KB ALL WEEK! Plus with the extra time I was able to JUICE!!
Side Note: The juicer take about 5 minutes to hand wash, SO WORTH it!
I peeled both the apple and the lemon, but I am not sure if I have to??
I love to vibrant color that comes out!
This was a great combo! I really loved the sweetness from the apple and I always feel great after drinking it!
I also made some waffles with half a banana, Maranatha AB, Greek Yogurt, and some granola.
Breakfast of CHAMPS!
BENIFITS OF JUICING
I have been doing a bit of research on the benefits oj juicing and there is SO MUCH out there!
- For one thing, the body can quickly absorb larger amounts of nutrients from juices than from solid foods because the process of digestion that is necessary when you eat whole foods is bypassed.
- Another one of the major health benefits of juicing is that it is an easy way to get beneficial enzymes, which are primarily found in raw foods, into the body. Enzymes in fresh fruits and vegetables have the vital role of converting food into body tissue and energy. Enzymes are also involved in metabolism, so one of the more valuable health benefits of juicing is that it can increase metabolic rate.
- Among the most interesting health benefits of juicing are its anti-aging benefits and its potential for alleviating symptoms of depression. The effects of juicing on depression are accomplished by providing a concentrated source of minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and folic acid. Deficiencies of these nutrients are associated with symptoms of depression.
HELPS THE BODY DIGEST EASIER!!! This is important for two reasons: 1) it takes the workload off the body, so it doesnâ€™t have to work so hard at digesting, and 2) you feel the results of the juicing almost immediately. People who juice nearly always report a boost of energy that lasts much longer than a cup of coffee, and is much healthier.
I think one of the best reasons for me is that it helps me to digest my veggies easier. You all know that I have some major tummy issues that I find to act up more when I eat RAW whole veggies. I also like the fact that you feel the results IMMEDIELTY!
Question: What benefits would you, or do you enjoy from juicing? Is it really worth it?
