So you bought a juicer. Now what? Following these juicing techniques will get you off to the right start. As you begin to apply these suggestions, juicing will become easier and more fun.
If you juice dark, leafy greens like spinach, add some cucumber. Most leafy greens will have a strong and somewhat unpleasant flavor. Cucumber will not only mask this taste, but adds a refreshing flavor to your drink. Using cucumbers with the peel on will add a lot of nutritional value to your juice.
Some very effective ingredients for juicing concoctions are chard, parsley, broccoli, kale and spinach. For the healthiest juices, use mostly greens and then add other vegetables or fruit for flavoring. Fruit juice generally contains more sugar than the juice from greens and usually isn’t as healthy for you.
Enjoy each drop of this juice. Enjoy the taste, and savor the different flavors. Start digestion of the juice by letting your saliva mix with it.
After juicing, it is always a good idea to rinse the juicer as soon as possible. Also, some colorful fruits and vegetables can build up dark stains on the juicer components.
Try juicing as an interesting and delicious alternative to forcing vegetables onto the plate of a finicky child. There are a lot of kids who don’t like the taste of vegetables. You can juice fruits and vegetables together to create a great taste and keep children in the dark about the vegetables that they are drinking.
Juicing is a great way to stock up your fridge but you should bear in mind that, if you don’t take precautions, refrigeration can cause color changes in the juice. No one wants to drink juice that has gone from a bright color to grey or brown. One solution to the problem is to add a teaspoon or two of lemon juice tot he juice mixture. The flavor won’t be affected by this tiny bit of lemon juice, but the color of the fruit or vegetable juice will be preserved.
