Juicing is a great way to insure that you receive a maximum amount of nutrients in your body. Within 15/20mns of drinking a fresh vegetable juice, the nutrients are in your arteries and veins and the absorption rate of juice is 99%. This is amazing when compared to our digestive system that, at best, absorbs about 40% of the nutrients from the food that we eat. Raw food Guru David Wolfe says that juicing and even blending food allows our body to absorb a lot more nutrients at a much faster rate. Juicing allows us to benefit from the full nutrients available in raw vegetables, which would otherwise be compromised in the cooking process. This allows us to recharge and rejuvenate our body quickly and boost our immune system. Drinking a vegetable juice is a great way to start the day. Try this recipe for Spinach Juice. It's a good one for starters of veggie juicing as it's soft and sweet and tasty:
Ingredients: 1 bunch spinach, 2 apples, 1/2 lemon peeled (optional)
Directions: Put all ingredients in your juicer, mix well and enjoy.
Experiment with any flavours that you like - you can juice cucumbers, celery, broccoli...add some coconut juice, apples, melon, beetroot, whatever you love!
