25 Tips to Make Your Own Juice for Health and Vitality!

  1. Before you start juicing consult a qualified health practitioner
  2. Juicing fruit can be the unsuitable for anyone who is over weight, has diabetes, or high blood pressure
  3. Plan ahead, decide which type of juicer(s) suits your needs
  4. Centrifugal juicers generate some heat which reduces nutrients, masticating juicers chew and squeeze out the juice preserving more nutrients
  5. Plan to make juicing part of your daily/weekly routine
  6. Keep your juicer on top of the kitchen work surface for easy access
  7. Placing a biodegradable or plastic bag in the pulp container means one less item to wash.
  8. The best time to drink juices is in the morning before eating anything else
  9. Juice before meals or 3 or 4 hours after a meal
  10. Only use fresh fruit and vegetables, the fresher the better
  11. If possible use seasonal local produce, pick your own, or ideally grow your own
  12. Juice organic produce if possible, alternatively wash everything thoroughly to remove any pesticide residues
  13. A good mix of fruit or vegetables in different colours will provide various nutrients
  14. Bear in mind that root vegetables (carrots, beets, etc.) are higher in sugar than other vegetables
  15. Remove any stones/kernels, seeds or pips are OK
  16. Juice the softer fruits/vegetables first, the harder ones will then force through any residue
  17. Start juicing what you like the taste of, add others gradually later
  18. Juice milder vegetables (celery, cucumber) before moving on to darker leafy greens
  19. When juicing leafy greens rolling them up tightly makes it easier to feed into the juicer
  20. Add a small amount of fruit (apple, lemon or grapes) to vegetable juices if taste is an issue
  21. A great way for children to get their vegetables – gradually add small amounts of vegetables when making their favourite juice
  22. Fresh juices loose nutrient value rapidly, for maximum benefit drink them immediately or within 15 minutes
  23. If you need to store some juice for a short time, add a little lemon or lime juice, use an airtight container leaving as little a gap as possible at the top, then refrigerate
  24. When having several juices per day, you can keep the removable parts in water in between juices
  25. Cleaning your juicer immediately after use is much easier, and it is ready for next time

Enjoy the benefits … juice for health!
